I'm starting to like the Ayrsley area, but just from research--not actual experience. For a non-driver, it seems to have a lot of amenities and is pedestrian-friendly.

Are there other areas like this in Charlotte? My price range for a home is under $225K.

Thanks!
Kelly

Yes, Ballantyne and Birkdale (one is in south Charlotte, the other in north Mecklenburg).

Baxter Villgae in Fort Mill as well as some parts of South Park. Probably not many homes in that price range in either though.

Kelly, I did think of one other area - not quite the "new village" concept of these other places, but still very walkable to everything you need (grocery stores, drug stores, WalMart, restaurants and a movie theater. Plus, it's on the bus line ) Look at the Sardis Forest neighborhood. Homes are 20 to 30 years old, but nice - many all brick. The neighborhood is nice and shady with beautiful, mature trees and you can walk to all the places you need easily - even the bus stop.

Here is one I pulled up for you for sale right now: Charlotte NC Homes For Sale, Houses for sale, houses, real estate, for sale - helenadamsrealty.com

Ballantyne Village offers condo and townhomes in your price range and you can walk to everything from harris Teeter to bars, Panera, upscale restaraunts, sandwich shops and much more. Also with a large emplyment center within walking distance you may never need a car

We live in Ayrsley and like it. Easy commute into the city, fun restaurants to walk to. Mostly young couples.

Baxter Village and Birkdale are similar but not as easy of a commute.

Shoppes at University Place area offers some of the same amenities. Condos are a little older, but you have everything you need in walking distance

Berewick will have the same feel to it that Baxter has once the shops, etc are built.

It depends what you are looking for?? Ayrsley resembles more of an urban living atmosphere, while Baxter, Berewick, etc resemble more of a family, suburban area.
