Everyone knows that the first rule in real estate is “Location, location, location.” Well I say that the very close second rule, like the first, is “Neighborhood, neighborhood, neighborhood!” What good is living your dream and buying a dream house in a prime location if you’re not also going to be surrounded by new friends and neighbors with similar dreams once you move in?
Dorothy’s goal in “The Wizard Of Oz” was to get back home. Why? Because although Munchkin Land was a great place to visit, she didn’t want to live there. Again, I don’t know “The Wizard Of Charlotte” but I do know how to help you find the way to get into your new home in the perfect location, location, location here in North Carolina. Through this “In The Neighborhood” series we’ll be taking a closer look at the greater Charlotte area, one neighborhood at a time, to see what it has to offer that’ll be just right for you. We’ll begin today with Hunter Oaks.
Located in western Union County and just south of the Ballantyne and Blakeney areas (just off of 485), Hunter Oaks consists of more than 900 homes in various price ranges that actually make up several different neighborhoods. These include the custom home section of Kingsmead. Many homes were constructed between 1984 and 2004 by some of Charlotte’s better builders including Ryland, Shea, and Orleans. And while home prices vary widely, Hunter Oaks is good for your budget no matter which home you choose, as it is located in Union County (home of comparatively lower taxes!).
Nice-sized lots, tree-lined streets, and lighted sidewalks combine to make a walk through Hunter Oaks a trip you’ll want to take every day. Start with a visit to Hunter Oaks Home Owner’s Association by clicking here.
Boasting two pool complexes, clubhouses, lighted tennis courts, walking trails, and playgrounds, this charming community offers residents country club living without the need to join a country club. And children can attend elementary, middle, and high school in three of the Marvin district’s newer, ultra-modern facilities too!
And Hunter Oaks isn’t one of the neighborhoods built in the middle of nowhere. This mature community is as close to rural attractions like horse farms as it is to Target.
