What specifics do you want to know. Vermillion is kind of cool with a small commercial district with a bar in the middle of the neighborhood.

Let me know if you need anything else.

Vermillion seemed real hot a few years ago and then kind of cooled down. For a neighborhood that received so much attention early on, you hardly hear about it anymore. It seems like they're starting to ramp up the advertising again after making some changes to the neighborhood - from what I can tell, the big change being building larger houses on larger lots.

I'm not a planner by trade, but I don't think Monteith would be considered a new urbanism style neighborhood. The housing style fits that of other new urbanism neighborhoods, but Monteith is not within walking distance of stores, schools, a town center, etc. Aside from that, I actually just sold my house in Monteith less than a week ago and would recommend it highly.

My understanding of true new urbanism neighborhoods would be Birkdale in Huntersville or Baxter Village in Fort Mill.

When we were looking, our realtor said that building had stopped in Vermillion for some reason. She didn't know why or what happened, but we were in too much of a hurry to be bothered with it. Seems like afterward I heard there was a legal issue halting it but not sure if it was that development...

We drove through MP. We didn't like the detached garages and the "courtyard" small lots. We liked Rosedale and bought in here. If you needed to, you could walk to the stores and it is a very friendly community. I love Bunco and the social events we have planned. We have great neighbors, too, and that's what's important to me...

Check with the Huntersville police department for crime statistics in those areas.

Another option just north of Huntersville is Oakhurst (technically in Cornelius, but just north of Exit 25) . . . we bought there because of the neo traditional plan. There is a wide variety of homes (condos, townhouses, smaller and larger single family homes), green space, pool, and the development at the front of the neighborhood includes a dry cleaner, coffee house, great restaurant, medical offices, and even a day care. Also easy access to Northcross (with Target, HT, Lowe's, Kohl's etc) - although sadly not walkable as there are no sidewalks down 21. Good luck on your search.
