Is anyone familiar with these neighborhoods in S. Charlotte? They seem extremely affordable for the area they are in. Are there tear-downs going on in these neighborhoods? We are looking at Olde Providence because of the wonderful schools but don't want our 2,100 square foot house dwarfed by someone's new monstrosity next to us, which happened in our current neighborhood.

No, not a lot of teardowns actually hardly any at all that I have ever seen or can remember. A good amount of renovations though, things like knocking walls out to open rooms up, upgrading kitchens. Old Providence is a huge neighborhood, Wessex Square has streets towards the back that connect to Cottonwood and on down Rea Rd.

Chadwick is nice as well. I've had many, many friends that grew up in those neighborhoods and have moved back. I bet half of my high school lived in Olde Providence! I think thats the best catch, Myers Park High School without having to pay a ton of money. If you have seen the Harris Teeter on the corner of Rea and Colony, that land and the custom neighborhood behind it called Stonecroft used to be a farm. We would walk from Olde Providence(before Colony went thru) and go cow tippin'!

These are all very solid, good neighborhoods. Some of the prices are lower than you might expect because a lot of these homes don't have garages, that's all
