Elizabeth

Home to the main campus of Central Piedmont Community College as well as 2 major hospital facilities (Presbyterian & Mercy)  and located within sight of Uptown there’s lots to love about the Elizabeth neighborhood.

Many of the homes and businesses in the area are located in older buildings giving the community a lot of historical character and charm.  The neighborhood is fairly pedestrian friendly with ample sidewalks and access to the Little Sugar Creek Parkway.

Popular for its eclectic mix of restaurants, pubs & music venues as well as for its quaint and quirky housing choices Elizabeth is a great choice for anyone searching for a more city lifestyle.  Many homes in this area are older properties which have been renovated although there are some pockets of new, as well as older townhomes and condos.

Condos (1bed or smaller 2bed) can be found in the high $100s but single family homes in this area start in the high $300s.  Demand is high so if you’re looking for a home in this popular area be prepared to be patient and ready to jump when properties come to market.  

 

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.

Fourth Ward

Uptown’s Fourth Ward extends to the north-west from Trade and Tryon to the I-277 loop. There are some beautiful single family homes in this area – mostly located along Poplar and Pine and W.9th and 8th streets. These homes are generally around 2000 sq ft and priced at over $500k this is an expensive choice but popular with those who enjoy a small town feel so close to the city center. Due to high demand it’s extremely difficult to find one of these properties.

Condos are much easier to find – but even the smaller units are expensive and sell quickly. Most of the condos are although a few older buildings like “The Poplar” built in 1927 are located in this area.

This uptown area offers a great commute and is walking distance from most of Uptown’s sports and entertainment venues.
