I think we may be leaning towards Huntersville at this point. I was wondering if anyone can comment on apartments we are considering. Please list the good, the bad, and the ugly....

1. Marquis @Northcross

2. Birkdale Apartment Homes

3. Bexley Commons at Rosedale

4. Camden Sedgebrook

5. Redcliffe at Kenton Place

I'd rank them:

1. Birkdale Apartment Homes
2. Redcliffe at Kenton Place
3. Bexley Commons at Rosedale
4. Colonial Grand (brand new)
5. Marquis @Northcross
6. Camden Sedgebrook

mostly because of the location, although I don't think you could go wrong on any of them.

I was actually just down last weekend (2/29-3/3) and was exploring apartments. For the Huntersville area I checked out the following: Camden Sedgebrook, Colonial Grand, One Norman Square, and another facility nearby that looked brand new called Carrington Place.

Ended up choosing Colonial Grand. I was looking for something new that had never been lived in and had a similar budget of under 1300. All of these apartment complexes were under 1300 for the 3 bedroom / 2 bath units. Both Carrington Place and Colonial Grand were brand new.

I chose Colonial Grand because it's 1/2 a mile off of exit 23. Has 9' ceilings with washer and dryer included in the rent. Also the bathroom countertops of 42" while I think the standard is 36", I'm still young, but it's nice not having to bend over too far. Also all three bedrooms had walk in closets with lots of storage. Two ceiling fans, one in the master and one in the living room. Rent also included a standard cable package - 75 channels. Kitchen was great too, tile for kitchen and bathrooms - carpet elsewhere, if you'd like I have tons of photos - just PM me and I'll email them to you.

As for the other's, Carrington Place was beautiful, just liked the layout a little more at Colonial Grand. One Norman Square seemed a little older and everything was wooded and hidden, just personally felt a little dark to me. And Camden seemed really crowded, everything felt like it was right on top of your when you were in the middle of the complex. Colonial Grand seemed a little more spread out to me.

That said, I live in PA and am just getting ready to move down May 1st, so this is all just the opinion of someone who's spent 3 total days in Charlotte, hope it helps.

Your reply was very helpful...I would like to narrow my choices before I go down again. I was down last year and toured Ballantyne. We were with a realtor, so we only saw homes and no apartments. Will make my way down to Charlotte this year and look at Huntersville.

Why did you decide on Carrington Place?
