About Michael Sullivan

I personally designed and built this house for my family and business. We have decided to let others enjoy our creation and create some amazing memories like we have over the years. We hope you enjoy every aspect of your visit. I have a desire for design and building. I still live nearby and will likely greet you personally upon check in to make sure every expectation is met or exceeded.

Michael Sullivan purchased this house in 2002

Why Michael Sullivan chose North Carolina

I have lived in the area since 1995 and always grew up around the water and water activities. I spent 3 years researching, designing and building this amazing property with an equally incredible lakefront view.

What makes this house unique

This property is a culmination of ideas including the 30 foot atrium in the center of the house which was inspired by homes in Dallas, the curvature of the wall to offer a lake view from every room in the house and maximize privacy. The waterfalls in/out that offer peaceful sounds and tie in with the lake ambiance. The stonework in/out, fireplaces, custom glass interior doors, custom designed glass front door. The lake!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just got home from staying at your house. We loved the roomy feel and all the amenities. Thank you for making our time together so meaningful. Our Aunt Sally would have loved it.

Amazing Family Adventure

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend this house. We brought a pontoon boat and lots of rafts and spent most of our time on the water. The house comfortably held 10 adults and 12 kids and the house had more than you need. There were a few things I wish I knew before I got there so I'll pass them on in case it would help other families. Coffee - both Keurig and regular (they have coffee filters there so you don't need to worry about that. The paddle boards and kayaks are under the house in a basement of sorts that you reach from the outside on the corner through the double doors. Definitely buy ice if you use it because the ice makers don't make much ice.

Overall we would recommend the house - it had everything. We moved in and felt comfortable right away! Enjoy!

Fantastic vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Absolute beautiful house. Family didn't want to leave. Plenty of room for large groups. Kid friendly. Loved the play room hidden in the bedroom. Had every amenity you could ever need. Our family ranged from 7 months to 90 years and the house worked so well, no matter the age. The water toys were great and enjoyed by many. Hoping we have a chance to return in the future.

Fun time had by all!

  • 5 of 5

We had 28 family members (ages 2 - 76!) for a 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration, all had great things to say about the house and lake location- beautiful, clean, well stocked kitchen, dock just steps from house, lots of TV's, towels, atrium was neat!

Some played pool, watched TV, rode paddle boats & kayaks, went fishing, kitchen was great for preparing meals- nice to have several refrigerators. Rented a pontoon boat w/ tube and jet ski from Lake Effects - wonderful to work with. The entire yard is fenced so we didn't need to worry about the little ones.. Somehow we had music! We had one night catered by Jeffery's restaurant - they brought the food, set up and came next day to pick up. We had a photographer come for a couple of hours. Guess only complaint was that we could have used another bathroom since the one in the Master was en suite. House had a few life jackets, we had smaller children bring their own, boat company provide 16, bring bug spray. Owner was very helpful and answered questions ASAP. The teenagers said this was better than going to the beach or mountains!

Awesome House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of about 16 (including young kids) and we all had a great time. There is plenty of room to spread out with 2 big common areas and game room. we were able to hangout upstairs without worrying about waking up the kids downstairs. The rooms are spacious as well and the beds are very comfortable. We also found the fenced in yard to be helpful as well we were able to lock the gate and not worry about the kids getting close to the water.

Fantastic views on the lake as well and nice beach area for lounging. The water is plenty deep enough for any boat rental as well.

Our group loved it so much that we already booked it for next year. I could not recommend this place more go ahead and book it you won't regret it!

More than we expected!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home so our family could be all together instead of all stuck in individual hotel rooms for 4 days for my brothers wedding. The property was outstanding. Well above what is pictured online. Plenty of room for everyone!! With 2 great rooms it was perfect for the kids to be able to hang out upstairs and the adults hung out downstairs. No one ever felt on top of one another. Cannot wait to rebook this property in the future. The owner was very approachable and always promptly responded with answers to any questions. As an avid traveler with children it was so nice to arrive at the home and not have to run out to the store immediately for essentials such as toilet paper, dish soap, tissues, paper towels and laundry soap!!! The kitchen is veryyyy well stocked with plates, cups, silverware, pots and pans and such. Just being able to be together right and right on beautiful Lake Norman was worth every penny we spent!!

We shall return!!

  • 4 of 5

This beautiful property has become "home" for the reuniting blessed week for OLD Phi Mus from HPU!! ( '67, '68 ,'69 grads) We just enjoyed our second week here and voted to return in 18 months for our third time.

The kitchen , living rooms and outdoor spaces are perfect for being together as family/sisters. Quality beds and bedding were adequate for a variety of sleep needs. We lived in dorms together, so sharing bathrooms was no challenge. The healthiest sisters took the upstairs rooms, so not having an elevator as we have had at another property, worked out just fine for us.
