Tega Cay Homes for Sale

Tega Cay is a master-planned luxury community located in York County, north of Rock Hill and west of Fort Mill. Located in South Carolina, Tega Cay is considered to be an affluent suburb of Charlotte and has a population of approximately 7,700 residents. Pleasantly nestled along Lake Wylie on a peninsula, it is just twenty miles of Uptown. “Tega Cay” is a Polynesian phrase meaning “Beautiful Peninsula.” The early settlers were predominantly Scotch-Irish Presbyterians who played significant roles in the American Revolutionary War. However, for a long time after the founding of York County, the area of modern-day Tega Cay was mostly an empty, undeveloped area. In 1970, the Ervin Company purchased 1,600 acres of heavily wooded land on Lake Wylie, which had been owned by the Duke Power Company. Construction began with the building of roads and a huge clubhouse, golf course, tennis courts, and swimming pools. This master-planned community was designed with a Polynesian theme, which can be seen in the street names, home designs, the clubhouse décor, and the guard station at the community’s entrance.
