Hi-

Thinking of buying a house in Millbridge in Waxhaw. If anyone lives there do you smell the treatment plant and are the gunshots an annoyance?

I live around the corner from Millbridge and walk through their often. I have 3 friends that live in Millbridge and my co-worker has a lovely home being built right now. She introduced me to some long time home owners and none of us have smelled a thing.
As for the shooting range across the street. It is there and you hear them target shooting for while and then you don't. More and more homes are going in. The noise sounds have been muted and I would guess that they will continue to do so as more homes absorb sound.

We have our home listed and will be buying at Ryland or Bonterra. We prefer the home site size and privacy that Ryland offers, but we are still deciding. Ryland seems to have better designs for an affordable price. We were there about a week or so ago. They are selling. Few communities have this much growth.

Quote from another member, "let me say its NOT a sewer plant its a Water Treatment Plant which is why it shouldnt smell in the 1st place...Im just relating what the outcome was... I dont disagree that the taxpayers should pay for this as it isnt their responsiblity since they didnt ask for it kwim? Our friends love living in cureton and quellin and wouldnt move due to the plant and it is a personal preference..."

Cureton and quellin are much closer to the water treatment facility. The smell isn't enough to deter most people. Many, many people rushed to buy there. The odor is being handled and planned for, but you would be safe of smell at Millbridge. Knock on doors and ask. They are super friendly there and often outside with their kids or walking their dogs.

I've been in Millbridge (Bonterra section off Waxhaw Marvin Road) for almost a year and never had any issues with the water treatment plant.

We can hear the gun range, but it's barely noticable.

It's a terrific neighborhood and we absolutely love it there.

Always go to a home or neighborhood when you are not invited. I dont mean knock on the door, I mean go see what the seller or realtor dont want you to see or hear or smell. Never base such a large investment on what smells good on a Tuesday afternoon.

If you're talking about the Chimneys at Marvin Reserve or Estates they are much more expensive than the Ryland Homes in Millbridge.

That's a really old post, but I would say it's referring to "The Reserve" - just fooled us with capitalization problems.
