The Queen City is maintaining its position as the migration mecca, with its southern region becoming an ever-growing target for northern transplants and the like. From large organizations seeking to establish new addresses within the Ballantyne Corporate Park to affluent families purchasing sprawling homesteads in popular golf communities or acquiring high-end condos within the city limits, Charlotte’s south end has definitely made its mark as one of the most desired areas to live and play, for those who enjoy “next-level” living.
If you are unfamiliar with life in the 28207 and its neighboring communities, you will be awestruck by the lifestyle alternatives of the movers and shakers of the south end and how they experience life on the high-reel. A random drive-through of this region will have you question the impact of the recession, as it is not uncommon to see homes well over $2 million, and pass by cars representative of luxury European craftsmanship. Surely at this level of prosperity, you are guaranteed an above standard lifestyle with homes boasting distinguished architectural adornments, spacious living, tree-lined canopied streets, and a diverse and eclectic environment of contemporary and fine dining establishments, along with great high-end retail shops (Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Tory Burch, etc.). Even places of worship, such as Calvary Church; and private education institutions like Charlotte Latin School and Charlotte Country Day School, exude magnificence and exclusivity. Attendance and enrollment at either of these institutions will place you and your children among the who’s who, further solidifying and maintaining the future wealth and growth of these affluent communities and the families that reside in them.
Last, but not least, the most notable amenity of this region is its selection of golf and country club facilities. While the Queen City provides all of its residents with a great deal of amenities to enjoy, whether it be professional sports, regularly celebrated cultural and art events, or a progressive night life; its southern region takes pride in providing its residents with activities associated with the country club and golf lifestyle. Many families in this region spend a great deal of their time socializing and closing business deals at these upscale community club houses. Establishing and building exclusive friendships at the Ballantyne, Myers Park or Providence Country Clubs, to name a few, will be worth the annual membership if it anchors you and your beloveds in the world of wealth and favor.
In a nutshell, life in the south end is not the standard for most and it speaks volumes of difference compared to the average “Charlottean,” and that of most Americans. What is important to acknowledge is that there is opportunity for all to have aspirations of the good life if our desires, motivations and actions support what is required to obtain it! With that being said, cheers to increased prosperity and living large!
