In Chapel Hill they have a place called Southern Village where the community has its own little market/dining/shopping area, parks, pools, and even an elementary school within it.

Are there any of these in Charlotte?

Baxter Village just over the line in the bedroom community of Fort Mill, SC sounds like what you are looking for

At Providence Road and hwy.51. The prices are reasonable depending upon what is wanted.

I'm looking for a 1800-2100 sqft home. I would like a neighborhood that is walkable with at least a few restaurants and shops within a 10-15 minute walk. It helps keep off the weight! :-)

The Arboretum area is NOT what the OP is looking for. The Arboretum is just a giant shopping plaza. Baxter Village, on the other hand, has shops, restaurants, elementary school, library and YMCA, all integrated into the neighborhood.

How close would you say Birkdale Village matches up? That is the only other place I can think of to suggest. ????

I don't know about the OP, but the Village of Baxter is exactly what I'm looking for except the prices are too high for me. Is Birkdale any cheaper?

And here I am thinking of The Point in Mooresville, although I don't think there are any 2100 sq ft houses in that development.
