Waterfront at The SanctuaryCustom Home Communities Of South Charlotte

This is the establishment–if folks ask me for South Charlotte’s most exclusive custom home communities, we would look at The Sanctuary, Longview, Skyecroft and Highgate. There are many others along Providence Road, and some exclusive sections of Ballantyne… also newcomers like the Palisades have a lot to offer in the way of lifestyle and amenities (I’ve written about the new homes at Palisades here)… but this post is about the first of the “blue chips, ” The Sanctuary The blue chips south of Pineville-Matthews road, south “south” Charlotte, The Sanctuary in Mecklenburg County, and the other three in close-in Union County.

The Sanctuary, what’s in a name? The folks at Crescent Communities, Charlotte’s premiere waterfront developer, would have you believe Everything is in the name… after you look at the slide show below, you may feel the same way. Each time I visit, it feels more and more like a neighborhood with a feeling of serenity like no other.

The Sanctuary are on estate lots, from 2.5 to 10 acres, most will accommodate more than one home. 188 Homesites on 1300 acres of land, figure it out! The land is hilly and densely wooded, 3 separate streets makes up the Sanctuary joining Shopton Rd to the water. The land is interconnected by more than 20 miles of paved sidewalks and mulched hiking trails.

There are always homes available here- at the Sanctuary, to be a part of the “Builders Guild” you must keep an inventory home going at all times… yes even in slower times like today. You may select a lot and build a custom from plans, but there are exciting homes ready to move in this summer.

Here is a look at what is available today.
