If they have one child in elementary and another in middle or high school, the schedules might be different. I have heard that as a courtesy to the community the children assigned to Shiloh can attend Indian Trail, but that parents would be responsible for transportation (this I have not confirmed, however) Best of luck in your relocation

I think all year would be great to break up a hot summer. But all the schools should be on the same page

DR Horton has just put up signs on empty lots in BO...(near the forest view section)..

I'm assuming they are the new builder in here who took over for Ryan...

Homes look comparible so it doesn't seem like it'll be a hodgepodge if homes ever start selling again....

I rent a home in Brandon Oaks. I like it here. It is a very big community. I live in the older section built in 1994. There are 2 pools, basketball court, tennis courts....Lots of families w/kids...dogs..cats...etc..All the stores you need are right around the corner. It is a clean subdivision. My oldest goes to Sun Valley High...My youngest goes to Indian Trail Elementary.
Good Luck!!!

I didn't say there was really anything wrong w/the community, I was just pointing out that DR took over the lots that were sitting idle after Ryan pulled out.

DR has their "trailer" sitting near the back entrance (by the Harris Teeter)

Since this post is 2 years old, I wonder where if the O.P. bought in Brandan Oaks?

BEWARE the train!!
There is a very loud train that passes by that neighborhood. I live on the other side of Rt 74 to Brandon Oaks, and I hear the train loud and clear at my house. I can't even imagine how loud it is in Brandon Oaks...

The train that goes through Indian Trail passes about 1 1/2 miles from me at its closest point (& I'm in Brandon Oaks). I can't even tell you when it passes through the town. That's how much I notice it.

Sorry that your bitter about something buddy.....

Beware the trian??? If people were that concerned about it they would miss out on lots of nice places to live from uptown Charlotte all the way thru Elizabeth, Chantilly, southeast Charlotte, Matthews, Indian Trail and beyond! This is really a nonissue.

I remember as a kid growing up we lived at least 7-8 miles from the train tracks, but at night when all was calm you could hear the whistle blowing way off in the distance. And one day I read some ghost story about a train somewhere in NC and from then on I was always spooked when I heard that dang whistle!

Never lived in Brandon Oaks...but I can't imagine that it would be too terrible. There aren't that many trains that run that set of tracks. However, if you aren't a big fan of the trains it might be enough to bug you.

I currently live in Brandon Oaks. Only on a really quiet night, with the windows open, can you hear a train faintly in the distance. Not even a slight concern.

Although, Brandon Oaks is a big place and I'm near the back end. If you were right up at the front end, it might be a different story.

Every single place you find to live ANYWHERE is going to have SOMETHING wrong with it. If it's not a train, it's too close to the highway. If it's not close to a highway or train, then it's too far from everything. Sure, there's a train. It's in the back yard though.

In Missouri, I lived way up on a hill and at the bottom of that hill was a train. You get used to it and it becomes subaudible after awhile. I remember several times when I had a friend over and the train went by. The were surprised by it and asked if that was a train. I hadn't even heard the train until they mentioned it and specifically brought attention to it.
