Charlotte’s luxury homes began in the first suburbs of Charlotte- Elizabeth, Myers Park and the first phase of lxuery home in Myers ParkDilworth, and have since spread out to include favored country clubs,  lake front villas,  or some combination that made values soar.

Venerable Myers Park Country Club sits in the heart of Myers Park.  Charlotte Country Club provided an early value anchor to the neighbood known as Plaza -Midwood.  More recently, during the 1980’s and 90s, Carmel Country Club and Quail Hollow filled out the neighborhoods near Southpark, Charlotte’s destination mall for designer stores and high end retail. Today Southpark is a region unto itself, within its confines is the 4th largest GDP area in North Carolina.

Charlotte’s love affair with the outdoors  and golf continues with the additions ot the TPC Piper Glen Course, Ballantyne Country Club, Providence Country Club, and more recently The Club at Longview.

First designed and created by the British in colonial India, the bungalow is designed with sloping porch roofs to keep the hot sun out of the (originally) un-airconditioned homes.

All of the intown areas are knownfor their tall oak trees. Each neighborhood has wide tree-lined streets that are sensationally beautiful each April as the leaves come back in full and the canopy completes on many streets. Before Charlotte was know as the Queen City, many called it the “Tree City.”

I am the owner and operator of CharlotteCommunitiesOnline.com and was inspired to create this website when I moved my young family of 6 down to Charlotte from the northeast, now over 20 years ago. Charlotte quickly became home to us and I wanted to create a website that would help individuals and families considering a move to Charlotte. I'm also the owner of The McDonald Group at eXp Realty (my day job) and have helped hundreds of folks relocate to Charlotte over the years.

So everybody’s heard that Atlanta calls itself the “capitol” of the New South. Ok, I’ll give them that. But if Atlanta is the “capitol”, then Charlotte is the heart of the New South. Charlotte is the 20th largest city
