What do you have for me? We hate the brand new cookie cutter type neighborhoods w/ no trees.
Are there older neighborhoods in surrounding areas such as Huntersville, Cornelius, Concord etcc..............??
What are the best neighborhoods closer to uptown Charlotte also?

Thanks I look forward to your responses.

I live in Matthews near the Charlotte line and like our neighborhood. It has been around for twenty years so it has lots of large trees and the houses are different styles. There are a lot of older subdivisions near Rice and Idlewild Rd. Ours is Southwoods.

Check the sex offender registry no matter where you are going to move to, we eliminated a couple neighborhoods because we found an offender nearby.

In-town neighborhoods include Myers Park, Dilworth and Eliazabeth. If schools aren't an issue, Chantilly and Plaza Midwood as well.

I think there is a very established neighborhood named Hamptons or Hamptons ??? in Huntersville. Just what you wanted. Good Luck!

It is called "The Hamptons"

Just wanted to add - I live near Plaza Midwood and my house is zoned for Myers Park High School. MP is supposed to be one of the better public schools (I don't know first hand, as I don't have any children), so I hope you won't rule out the neighborhood if you have high schoolers at home. I have heard from parents in my neighborhood that the elementary and middle schools are less than stellar, and they are trying to get us redistricted. Your realtor should be able to tell you the names of the schools for any home you are interested in.

As loves said, it would help if you could post your price range.

Good luck!

Smart move, I did this as well. Our subdiv. (Price Mill) is in Wesley Chapel just around the corner from the Elem. school and registered sex offenders can't live w/in so many miles of schools. (I think it's 1 mile, it should be MUCH more).
