I just moved from out of state to a house in the Hampton Place subdivision and it seems like a nice, quiet an neighborhood with a nice surrounding area for my family. My concern/question is about occupants of this neighborhood - is it a lot of renters? I see people walking around in their undershirts, teenage kids hanging on the corner of the street and things of that nature and I found that weird - am I over-analyzing all this or is there something I should know? Perhaps it's just summertime in the South! The neighborhood really seems nice but I am just finding all this to be out of place.

Is this the subdivision off Prosperity Church? If so, I live across the street (Rolling Oaks). We have a pretty alert and active Neighborhood (Watch) that watches out and reports "strange" activity to the police. Its possible that they are harmless and just hanging out, it's hot. Just something to keep an eye on, talk to your neighbors, make sure they know if and when you are out of town. Always be alert of your surroundings. I feel very comfortable in this area of Charlotte. Welcome to Charlotte!!

No. This is off Browne Rd and DeArmon.

Did you purchase your house or are you renting. Hampton connects to Amber Leigh and a small starter subdivision (brownstone). It may connect to Eagle Rock also. Brwonestone looks as though it has been taken over by renters. Unfortunate. The other neighborhoods are nice otherwise.

I have drove through that neighborhood., when were looking to rent a house. I noticed a lot of teens playing in the street, but they seemed to be just playing and behaving themselves.

Are you looking to live in the newer side? I can tell a major difference between the lot size and houses on the newer.

We have purchased our home. I am pretty sure it's all harmless, it just surprised me. I have family that put a downpayment on one of the new houses being built between Hampton Place and Amber Leigh and I was worried I steered them wrong.

After I posted, I got to thinking this was the subdivision off DeArmon. I'd say, its' generally still in good area. Always something to keep an eye on though. Being alert and knowing your neighbors is always a safer to live.

We purchased our home 14 years ago (from Norther Virginia area), we love this area. I consider this area "Mallard Creek" not University. Most of the homes in our neighborhood are owned, the renters keep the homes very neat, appreciate their home.

Hey, I been thinking about building in this area as well, and was curious on how you liked it so far ??

I did get the same feeling you got from driving through, but wasn't sure how much of a concern it actually was. Any feedback would be great!
Thank you
