Iredell County, North Carolina

Iredell County real estate is on the western side of central North Carolina.  Having the Brushy Mountains to the northwest and Lake Norman to the south gives Iredell County both lake/water and mountain sports and activities for residents to enjoy.  Located north of Mecklenburg County, portions of Iredell County, such as Mooresville, have become bedroom communities for Charlotte, North Carolina.  Close proximity to Charlotte real estate also gives Iredell residents all the shopping, sports and other amenities that a big city offers.   Iredell County covers approximately 576 sq. miles with over 21 sq. miles of the county being in water,  largely attributable to Lake Norman, which offers the county over 520 linear miles of shoreline.  In general, Iredell County has many lovely low ridges and green valleys with streams running through them.   It is estimated that, as of 2008, Iredell County has around 155,359 residents which is way up from the 2000 census which had the number of Iredell residents at 122,660.  The county seat for Iredell County is the city of Statesville which is 130 miles west of the state capital of Raleigh and 45 miles north of Charlotte.

In the north and some southern parts of Iredell County farming/dairy farming is the major economic focus.  Central and southern Iredell County has its major focus on industry and booming industry at that.  With its close proximity to Charlotte, major transportation crossroads of I-77 (north/south) and I-40 (east/west) and 80,000 strong in skilled work force Iredell County is vibrant and growing.

Iredell County is also the heart of NASCAR being home to many race drivers, NASCAR Technical Institute and NASCAR related businesses and shops.  

The people of Iredell are in great hands with Iredell County Sheriff Phillip H. Redmond who has done an outstanding job of protecting and serving the county with innovation.  The major crossroads, mentioned above, also bring illegal transportation of contraband, alcohol and illegal aliens.  However, Sheriff Redmond has aggressively gone after this type of criminal by creating the "Interstate Criminal Enforcement Team."  This highly specialized team has apprehended not just the criminals but their contraband and Sheriff Redmond has used it to build offices throughout the county to better protect its citizens, improved the crime lab technology and purchased new patrol cars also with upgraded technology.  Kudos to Sheriff Redmond!

Another kudos goes to the Iredell-Statesville Schools which in 2008 received the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award which was given for performance excellence!   The Iredell-Statesville School District covers most of the county with the exception of the city of Mooresville which has its own Mooresville Graded School District.  Both districts have excellent and innovative schools and serves their students well.

For location, quality of life, work, education and recreation you cannot beat Iredell County!
