I would suspect only one side of Longview would be kid friendly I like to refer to them as the Left side of Tom Short and the Right side, the left side is big crazy multimillion dollar mansions too spread out to be kid friendly, the other side would be more conducive to kids and the houses are much smaller and closer.
My neighbor across from me is a member at Longview and is getting out, she says there is just not enough people around and has never felt comfortable in the clubhouse.
But you dont have to belong to the club to live there.

Yes, you do have to belong to the club to live there.

A social membership is required on the "Weiland" side and a Full Golf Membership is required on the clubhouse side.

You cannot purchase a home in Longview without applying for a membership to the club.

They are actually pretty close to capping the membership.

I guess that would be one reason for me not to look there now.

Default Longview or firethorne

We have homes currently in both Longview CC and Firethorne CC. They are both wonderful, family friendly and welcoming. They are both in a wonderful school district. It all comes down to whether or not you want a gate and your price range. You will love living in either neighborhood.

Why not Ballantyne CC? It's very kid friendly with excellent schools.

You should probably also consider Longbrooke European Estates located in Lancaster County, SC (Fort Mill/Indian Land). It is located 5 miles south of Ballantyne right off of Hwy 521 (Johnston Rd). Indian Land schools are very very highly rated. In addition, you would save a lot on property taxes when compared to both Mecklenburg and Union Counties.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have more questions.

Ummmm, last time I checked, Indian Land schools were not "very very highly rated".
