Charlotte NC  A lot has been written about Baxter Village, variously called a “new urban development”, a “front porch community”, a walking community,  truthfully described as an “old time neighborhood with modern conveniences.” Baxter Village represents the pinnacle of development for the Close family, heirs to the Springs Industries, and owners of much of what we call Fort Mill, SC.  Baxter Village is  true to the heart of the matriarch Ann Springs Close, a devoted naturalist and environmentalist, Baxter Village’s 1000 acres is cris-crossed with 500 acres of parks, walking trails and open spaces.

Baxter Village is just 15 miles from Uptown Charlotte along Interstate 77, but step inside and you’ll find a self-contained community, a walking space with wi-fi! Old fashioned neighborhoods with  modern conveniences ad open spaces are the hallmarks of Baxter Village. An on site elementary school, a YMCA- truly a community highlight, a library, restaurants, shopping and all the conveniences within walking distance, or a short drive.

It just a few short miles to the 2300 acre Ann Close Greenway, a park given to the town in perpetuity by the Close family, named in honor of Ann Springs Close whose love for the outdoors, horses and the environment are well known through out the area.
