Mint Hill

On the eastern border of Mecklenburg county, straddling the I-485 loop is the Town of Mint Hill.   The town sprawls around an indistinct town center offering a more rural feel than much of Mecklenburg County.  Recent construction has brought several high end subdivisions to this small town with more than 110 homes selling at $350k+ in 2015 compared to only 25 in 2012 but it still retains it’s more small town feel.

Proximity to I-485 gives Mint Hill easy access to everything the Charlotte Metro area offers.  The town’s emphasis on community as well as recent business center improvements which have bought a wide range of new shopping & dining businesses into the town along with several new housing developments has made Mint Hill an increasingly attractive place to live.
