Saw a few nice spots including a beuty in Northstone in a section with all side bricked homes for $549,000. Nice homes. But the area I really liked was a development not on a golf course. The development was right near north Charlotte and it was called Bridgehampton. Half was in NC and the other half in SC. Seemed like a nice place and right near great shops and restaurants. This might be the place for me.

I also looked at Highland Creek and the one almost across the street but much more expensive. Found a nice home for around 500 plus but it was too close to the power lines. But the home was spectacular eeven though it had pink cabnets and kind of a pink tile floor.

But as of now I love Bridgehampton. Can anyone provide any feedback?

Thanks

Excellent choice! Bridgehampton is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the Ballantyne area. John Wieland is the builder there and builds a quality home. The location can't be beat and the community ammenities are very nice.

I agree with businessperson -- it is an excellent location in the Ballantyne area. John Wieland was the builder in there --his homes allow a lot of customization, so even though you may see very similar floor plans the houses won't look exactly the same. It is a four-sided brick community with very nice amenities. I have a listing in Bridgehampton, a beautiful home on nearly half an acre -- to take a look at it just click on my name, scroll down to my webpage and click on "featured properties"

Best of luck to you -- glad you liked the south end of town

Wow, OP-- you looked at some great neighborhoods. My friend and her husband looked at several similar neighborhoods and decided on Bridgehampton. I went to a cook out at her house and the neighbors were there-- everyone seemed lovely. Majority were transplants to the area, so they all kind of bonded. The common areas seem very nice, too.

The only drawback for her husband was the commute because traffic getting to uptown is nuts. He somehow found a "back way" that helped a bit.

Default Saw your listing

Just checked out your listing. Nice!!!!! A few folks have mentioned that this area is rapidly becoming a great place to live. Is it a big difference either pro or con between the north and south?

Default might as well ask, too

My huband and I are coming to the area at the end of the month to look at homes. We're both in our mid-50's and we're coming from the NE. I've been aware of Wieland homes we're anxious to see them. Is Bridgehampton a good fit for "empty nesters"? We'd like a mixed-age neighborhood..not all little kids, and not a retirement home.
I know from moving 9 times that finding other transplants helps get everyone together socially.
Any other ideas on good neighborhoods in the 500-600K range? We'd like to be about 1/2 hour from the airport. I know traffic is an issue in Charlotte.
I think this site is the best for sharing information and opinions.
Thanks for both.

In that price range you have so many options -- really depends on what you are looking for in a community and in a home, for example age of home or amenities. I like Bridgehampton -- also in the same area I would consider Ballantyne Country Club, but know that there are fees associated depending on the type of membership.

Best of luck to you in your search -- feel free to PM me if I can assist in any way.

Default airport

Hi kkg72,

South Charlotte, Union county, and SC border all run about 1/2 hour to airport, maybe 40-50 minutes with moderate traffic. Depends on how far south you go. Although taxes are rising everywhere, stick to Union County or SC for now! Just an Opinion, but Ballantyne is the most beautiful of the three.
