Hello everyone,
Which area neighborhoods in and around Charlotte have less children?
We don't have children at home and think we might be better suited to a neighborhood that dosen't have many children; a neighborhood that has more retirees and 40 something couples.
Does anyone have any neighborhood suggestions for this 40 something barren couple?
Many thanks!

Sincerely,
Maddie Claire

My suggestion would be to look at an established neighborhood (probably 20 years old), where most of the kids have grown up. Our neighborhood has become one of those. Most of our children are in their early to mid-20's - just graduating college and leaving the nest. The only younger kids are in homes where there has been turnover.

There's also a couple of neighborhoods that 'popped' into my head when I read you OP.

There's one called the Polo Club in Matthews and a newer one that just started pre-selling called Silver Oaks also in the Matthews area.

Both neighborhoods have restrictions limiting the number of units with folks under 55. It's not 100% over 55, but certainly what they are hoping for.

They both seem to be great places to live.

Just some thoughts.

We live in Colonial Grand in Huntersville.....been here a month/half. Part of the complex is still under construction, but suppose to be finished early next year. We are 58 & 59 years old and only have seen a couple of young kids in the complex. One is a 2 year old, that does live her with his mom and the other was around 10 years old (don't know if he lives here though). There will be a about 5 buildings of apartments (3-level) to fill when the construction is done. There is NOTHING here for kids to do outside, so it looks like management/owners are really looking for people/couples in their
30's/40's/50's to move in (with no children).
The apartments here are very, very nice and BRAND NEW. The even come with a washer/dryer and frig and dishwasher. They also have a nice fitness center (which I guess is a stardard thing nowdays) and a nice entertainment area by the Rental Office. We signed a year lease and got discounts on the Move-In cost.
We really didn't want to live around kids, our perference, so this complex is fine....for now. Hopefully the next time we move it will be to a 55+ community.

Sounds perfect!! Thank you so much!
Do you know how far it is from Uptown Charlotte (Tryon & Market St.)?

Are there any restaurants or stores close to the complex? Anything within walking distance? Is it an esy drive to Uptown Charlotte?
Any information is greatly appreciated!
P.S. We're moving to Charlotte next month and will live in an apartment until we get acclimated to the area.
The Colonial Grand looks really nice, and any first hand information you can supply will be most helpful.
Thanks again!
