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.

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.
