There's a park a few minutes away thats nice to take kids and families and enjoy a nice walk around the the water

I can walk to the library, I can walk to my doctors office and we do have lots of trees. I am only ten minutes from uptown Charlotte and two minutes from a lake. A three hour drive will get me to the beach or the mountains

It's a very quiet neighborhood. Not many people with a lot of kids live here. In the yards are well maintained in the yards are well maintained

What is unique about my neighborhood is there are quite a few long term families. We do not have a lot of renters.

AT MOST I LIKE HOW SAFE AND PEACEFUL THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS. I LIKE THE SCENERY AND THE FAMILIES THAT LIVE THERE.

Stores surrounding the area in which I live in. Keeping us up to date with the latest developments. I like restaurants and bowling alleys
