Sedgefield is an “intown ” neighborhood” (defined as 10 minutes or less to Trade and Tryon” bordered by South Blvd on the west, Park Rd on the East, Dilworth (Ideal Way) to the north, and Hartford and Marsh Road to the south.  Originally, this was a working class neighborhood for the families of mill workers along South Blvd.  Large 75-100 year oak trees line the streets.

Work Uptown?  Sedgefield is convenient. The center of Sedgefield is

  • 3 miles to Bank of America (Trade and Tryon)
  • 7.3 miles to Charlotte Douglas Airport
  • 5.1 Miles to United Technologies on Tyvola
  • 3 miles to Queens University
  • 4.4 miles to the Fillmore at the Music Factory

This old time Charlotte neighborhood is rapidly changing, it is younger, more single, and much more affluent than its past.  City bonds have paved miles of new sidewalks and built Sedgefield Park, while the New Bern station of the Lynx is in walking distance of much of the neighborhood. It compares favorably with NODA in livability, prices, proximity to Uptown and SouthEnd, and safety.  About 2600 people live here with an average age of 32 years old.  Many folks rent, and then buy here.

Old mill home style is being replaced by the arts and crafts tradition from Dilworth. On any day you can find craftsman hard at work tearing out the old or building new.   It is a neighborhood in transition as 1-1300 sf homes are bought, added on to, renovated, and sold in the $ 3-400’s.
