Plaza Midwood

This is very much the place to live for Charlotte’s millennials! Many of the area’s older properties have been renovated and newer homes have been built to complement the Craftsman aesthetic of the neighbourhood. The area is walkable, and along with the neighbouring “Commonwealth” district to the south of Central Avenue offers a great selection of restaurants, bars, and stores.

Occasional opportunities still arise to buy un-renovated properties but prices reflect the popularity of the area. Many properties have had partial or full renovations and may include an additional story added to a former ranch style property. Prices for a fully renovated or new construction 2 story single family house will generally start in the $350s with prices in the $500s-$600s or even more not uncommon.

Very few homes are available in this area and most sell very quickly. If you like this area but can’t find a place then you could consider neighboring Commonwealth or Chantilly or the increasingly popular nearby Belmont or Villa Heights neighborhoods.
