Community Overview

Handsmill Community Vision

Imagine Mother Nature as your next door neighbor.

What’s your hurry? Travel the scenic route, the road that you have to take a little more slowly, the one where the lake peeks out from behind the trees. This is Handsmill on Lake Wylie - a private gated community located along the shores of beautiful Lake Wylie in York County, South Carolina - just across the state line and within a 30 minute drive to the bustling city of Charlotte.

Privacy. Security. A sense of arrival. This is a community of welcoming neighborhoods and tree-lined streets surrounding a magnificent lake. Spend time on or near a lake and you understand that there really is such a thing as “lake time” where all else drifts away and you can unwind. In short, it means more than just time on the lake. It’s a frame of mind, and one that you can truly experience at Handsmill on Lake Wylie.

Naturally Beautiful

Adventure never takes a paved road. Here you can explore the 300 miles of shoreline and boat or kayak the 14,000 square miles of lake. If you’re a wildlife enthusiast, don’t forget to bring a pair of binoculars. You may even spot one of the area’s most famous residents, the American Bald Eagle.

Living Lakeside

Private marinas grant access to one of the Carolinas’ most naturally beautiful lakes, shimmering Lake Wylie. Unlike other lakes in the region, Lake Wylie is still virtually undiscovered. Go boating, fishing, bird watching… or simply relax in the shade of one of our magnificent pines.

Masterfully Planned

A community developed in partnership with the real estate industry’s best builders and developers, Handsmill’s master plan includes 30 acres of land that will remain undeveloped and that will protect the natural beauty of the community. This isn’t just your home... it’s your refuge.
