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.
