Lawson in Waxhaw NC—Homes for Sale and Neighborhood Profile

Click here for an update to the 2011 and 2010 real estate market in Lawson.

Why is Lawson’s community clubhouse and amenity center reminiscent of a historic mill?  The answer to this question is found in the history of the land where this Waxhaw NC neighborhood is under construction.  In fact, the developers named the community after John Lawson, an English naturalist who followed an ancient Indian trading path to the land of the Waxhaw Indians and in 1701 described the area as “Lower Providence, a land set apart.”

Lawson’s developers asked the Trading Paths Association to evaluate the land prior to development.  The TPA discovered a place called “Five Forks”, which was the spot where five ancient roads met above a mill site called Howard’s Mill.  It is believed that a small settlement thrived at Five forks in the mid-1700s.

Lawson’s master plan encompasses over 500 acres of rolling wooded land preserving a third of the acreage in common areas.  These common areas containing miles of walking/hiking trails and natural parks buffer the individual neighborhoods within Lawson.  The ruins of the 19th century Howard’s Mill and other archeological finds are included in these common areas.

Lawson is located on Cuthbertson Road just a few miles from shopping centers along Providence Road and quaint historic downtown Waxhaw.  The new Cuthbertson Middle and High Schools complex is located a short distance from the neighborhood.

A variety of homes can be found in Lawson from small patio homes and ranches with lawn maintenance included to executive homes with more than 4000 square feet.  Ryland and Orleans are still building new homes in the neighborhood.
