SCOTT'S 5 FAVORITES
Favorite View: The sunset over Lake Davidson. Davidson Pointe is surrounded by water on three sides. In the summer the sunset is unreal, and in the winter the fog rolls over the lake in the morning. Beautiful!
Favorite Local Grocery Store: There is a Harris Teeter and Food Lion within five miles of Davidson Pointe, but my favorite is the Healthy Home Market. A local natural grocery store stocked with all kinds of great fresh fruits and locally sourced meats.
Favorite Coffee Shop: Summit Coffee, located in downtown Davidson, is a two-story coffee shop in a 100-year-old plus building. College students and business people alike congregate there for a truly eclectic environment–evenings on the patio with live music under the pergola in the summer, and music and open-mic nights on the second floor in the winter.
Favorite Restaurant: Epic Chophouse. Located in downtown Mooresville this restaurant does everything right. Wonderful atmosphere and great food. I took my Dad here for Fathers Day and he said it was the best steak he’d had in 20 years.

Q & A WITH SCOTT
Relationship to Davidson: My grandfather was born in Davidson, my father was raised in Mooresville, and I grew up in Charlotte. My wife is a professional horse trainer in the sport of Dressage. We met on a blind date and her horses were in Mooresville. So, I moved to Davidson after we were married in 2003 and love it here.
What do you like most about living in Davidson Pointe? The neighborhood was built by Saussy Burbank. My wife and I actually owned another Saussy Burbank home prior to living here and the quality of construction and design is just second to none. I also like the fact that we are in the town of Davidson but the County of Iredell where the taxes are cheaper. Of course, the lake is fantastic and the neighbors are nice.
What are your hobbies and are they near the neighborhood? My wife and I are into Crossfit. We’ve been member of a few gyms over the past 5 years but our current and favorite is Crossfit Cornelius. It’s a beautiful 10 minute drive early in the morning through downtown Davidson and Cornelius.
Tell Us About Davidson Pointe
Davidson Pointe was developed by Saussy Burbank and construction began around 2006. There is an old farm house still on Bridges Farm Road that leads into the neighborhood, presumably where the family who originally owned the land lived. The neighborhood was released in phases and is now nearly complete.
The neighborhood is constructed in a ring like fashion, with 3 level style “row houses” in the middle, larger homes in the next “ring” and then still larger Lake front homes on the outside. Yards tend to be on the small side with minimal maintenance and are built close together, yet are laid out in a way that the close proximity does not limit privacy. The peninsula like land the neighborhood sits on guarantees no future housing or development will spoil the fantastic lake life with it’s wildlife and scenery.
Restaurants and Shopping
Located off of Highway 115, Davidson Pointe is only a few miles from Downtown Davidson. Here there are many wonderful restaurants such as Famous Toastery, Brickhouse Tavern, Restaurant X, The Pickled Peach, and many more. Main Street Davidson offers interesting boutique shopping for book lovers, antique hounds, and java fiends at Summit Coffee.
Family and Fitness
There are signs of family fitness all over the area with easy access to boating, jogging, and bicycling just to name a few. The Town of Davidson is alive with activity with events held year round. There are Concerts on the Green all through the summer, Davidson Farmers’ Market is open year round, and access to world class drama, music, and guest lecturers at Davidson College. The Davidson Christmas and 4th of July parades are a big hit in this quaint small town.
