Ballantyne

Ballantyne is located just south of the I-485 loop between Rea Road and Pineville. Homes in this area are almost exclusively in newer subdivisions with houses starting in the mid $200s and going up into the $1million+ range. This area is extremely popular due to convenient location and properties frequently sell more quickly than the average for the Charlotte area.

Ballantyne offers a wide range of shopping and dining and recreation activities. Popular choices include the Ballantyne Hotel which offers golf, fine dining at the Gallery Restaurant and a very fine traditional Afternoon Tea. If you prefer something more casual you might enjoy Elwoods Barbecue and Burger Bar – popular for great food, local craft beers & live entertainment.

The great thing about the Ballantyne area is that it really does cater to every need – however, if you crave something new then you’re just a few minutes from I-485. Carolina Place Mall is just a few minutes away and it’s only 30 minutes to both uptown Charlotte and Lake Wylie. Truly a great spot – close to everything!
