Search for Sherrills Ford Real Estate.

Sherrills Ford is one of multiple unincorporated, census-designated communities in North Carolina. This community is located in Catawba County near Lake Norman. Sherrills Ford takes up 7.8 square miles of the Hickory-Lenoir-Morganton Metropolitan Statistical Area. Nearby communities are Terrell to the south and Catawba to the northwest.

The name Sherrills Ford comes from Adam Sherrill. Sherrill and his family moved to the area from Northeast Maryland. They settled on the Catawba River in 1747 near sandbanks that made the river impossible to cross. John Beatty also immigrated to the area near the Sherrills. Eventually the crossing points became known as Sherrills Ford and Beatties Ford.

The summers in the area are nice and warm, with persistent 90-degree days. The winters are moderate and chilly, and snowfall is scarce. Rainfall is evenly dispersed throughout the year with Autumn being the driest season. The northwest mountains act as a shield, blocking a lot of the cold northwest winds. The Hickory-Lenoir-Morganton terrain is hilly and forested. Much of the furniture in the U.S. is made within 200 miles of Hickory. It is said that Hickory, being full of hardwood forests, uses its wood as the original resource for Hickory’s furniture-making industry. The significant amount of trees dress the town with vibrant colors in the fall.

The area has a quaint small-town atmosphere. The residents are served by the Catawba County School District. The district oversees 29 different schools in the area. The median home price in Sherrills Ford is currently $255,800. Sherrills Ford is home to man single-family homes, cottages, bungalows, and some of them are located on the beautiful lake front at Lake Norman. There is a project underway called The Village at Sherrills Ford. The mixed use project takes up 206 acres on the shore of Lake Norman, and may include over 250 single-family lots. If the project goes according to plan, Sherrills Ford will have its own commercial shopping center soon.

Food is very important to North Carolina residents, and the small-town of Sherrills-Ford does not let its community down. Food Boss Hog Barbecue is a small, quiet BBQ joint that serves delicious barbecue, burgers, hotdogs, rubs, and salad. This southern barbecue is affordable and definitely hits the spot. Lineberger’s Cattle Company Steakhouse and Saloon serves the best steak in town. Take your pick from the many different steaks served, filet mignon, prime rib (melts in your mouth), salmon, fried shrimp, salad bar, and coconut caramel pie. The options are mouth-watering and they go above and beyond customer expectations. Horsefeathers Roadhouse is the perfect spot for your Carolina southern food cravings. Come here for their famous horsefeather chips, wings, chili, beef brisket, and pulled pork! Landing on the Lake is a lake front restaurant that goes above and beyond with their extensive and appetizing menu. They serve fried pickles, buffalo chicken sandwiches, chicken salad wraps, mushroom and Swiss burgers, Millie’s meatballs, shrimp po boys, pizza, fajitas, ribs, seafood, fries, hushpuppies, mac n cheese, and baked beans. The Landing is located on Lake Norman.

Sherrills Ford has not yet been blessed with very many shopping places. On Sherrills Ford Road, you’ll find an adorable, vintage, 2-story antique store. The shop has collectables, gifts, and even hand dipped deluxe ice cream. Almost every Saturday, they hold a yard sale. The General Store in Sherrills Ford is a hardware store that has just about everything you could need. Mooresville is just a few minutes down the road and has Ross, Target, World Market, and more, for anything else you may need. If you want or need a shopping mall, you’ll have to head over to Hickory or Charlotte. Hickory is a little closer, but Charlotte is worth the few extra minutes.

The beauty of Sherrills Ford, the simplicity, and the peculiar history make it stand out from the rest. The charming small-town offers beautiful homes away from the big city, where you can lay out back and watch as the magical stars fill the night sky. Everybody knows everybody, so no one should have to be afraid. The ice cream shop and the antique mall are the same exact place. Small-town communities like Sherrills Ford are fleeting, so it’s best appreciate them while they last.
