Charlotte, N.C.–northernmost section–Eastfield Ridge–relatively small homes built around 2000, going for low $100’s, quarter-acre lots; here’s the neighborhood entrance. I like this house with the double decks. Here is neighboring Asbury Place. A tree-lined street (actually the whole neighborhood is tree-lined). The houses all have dull colors. A concrete path along a brook. Duplexes here. Across Eastfield Dr. is McGinnis Village, which has larger homes and is currently outside the city limits. Here is their pool/playground. Next to this neighborhood is Olmsted, which has even larger homes in a wooded setting. It was just getting started as of image date June ’08. It appears it will be incorporated into Huntersville.
Eastfield Village-(see page 3 to view area neighborhoods)–This area might be considered New Urbanist, but there are a lot of conventional single-family sections (like Asbury Park). Here’s a nice little bridge path by a pond next to the commercial development. Lovely “live-work” Shops at Eastfield Village. Here’s a “parking court“. Townhomes at the nearby (and connected) Prosperity Ridge (which is TND). A little too cookie-cutter here for my liking (single-family). Here’s an interesting area of “quadplexes”.
The company that developed The Shops at Eastfield Village has an interesting website, meetingstreet.net: Meeting Street Homes & Communities has been building homes of distinction – with a focus on townhomes, live/work townhomes and detached single-family homes – in the Charlotte market since 1996 and in the Charleston area since 2003.
