Cotswold

Cotswold is to the north east of Charlotte just a few miles from Uptown. 

Many homes here were built in the 1950s and 1960s and the design aesthetic of that era shows with lots of ranch & split level properties on large lots. 

The area is well established and the wealth of trees and homes with large yards adds to the attraction.  Families living here enjoy the proximity to good schools and with the additional advantage of just how close Cotswold is to Uptown it’s easy to understand the appeal of this neighborhood. 

Recent building on infill sites has included townhomes & condos and some newer single family homes bringing some new options.

Cotswold Shopping Center offers a wide range of stores and restaurants and much of the area is walkable with sidewalks connecting the various subdivisions.  

Very few homes in this area become available at less than $200K and single family homes generally start around the mid $300s.  

 

Myers Park

Taking a drive through Myers Park is like taking a drive to another era. The wide & curving boulevards are lined with trees. Unique homes set back from the road on large lots are the norm and it’s easy to see why this is one of Charlotte’s most sought after areas.

The area was a planned ‘subdivision’ from the days before the word subdivision meant what it does today. Carved out originally in the late 19th century but more fully developed in the 1920s and 30s the area is home to several historic homes as well as Queens University.

Prices in Myers Park are high with numerous homes (including condos) selling at over $1million. Occasionally smaller condos are available in the $200s but single family homes are rarely available under the mid $400s. Homes sell fast and the market is extremely competitive so it is important to be well prepared if planning a purchase in this area.

Davidson

Just 20 miles north of Charlotte on the banks of Lake Norman you’ll find Davidson, a quaint college town with its own great character.

Frequently listed as a top town to live in North Carolina - after just one visit you'll understand why.

Downtown is like something out of an old photograph with its traditional storefronts and the red brick campus buildings side by side on the main street.

Highly rated restaurants and small town retailers are plentiful in downtown Davidson - including Kindred, Main Street Books, and The Soda Shop.

Numerous events are held on the Village Green including the very popular Concerts on the Green and Christmas in Davidson.  

Homes near downtown are mostly historical with porches and shade trees but more affordable homes are just a short drive (or bicycle ride) away.

Davidson is very pedestrian and bicycle friendly and many nearby communities are served by sidewalks and greenway access.

Want to live on the lake? There are several lakeside condo communities (and a few lakeside houses) available in Davidson.

Small town atmosphere AND the Lake?  – Win-Win!
