Charlotte NC Luxury Homes for Sale in Gated Communities

Charlotte NC luxury real estate in gated communities is relatively hard to locate if you’re looking for a reasonably priced home. Most of the communities offering a gated entrance, are priced closer to the million dollar mark, then half a million, although there are few of those, so don’t give up hope, you will just have to shop the entire market as new gated communities are becoming a little more common place here than in years past.

Charlotte homes for sale in gated communities are found most often in the southern side of town as this area was the first area that saw major real estate expansion as the city grew. You’ll also find some upscale gated communities in some of the bordering counties, especially in Union, Iredell and Cabarrus counties. These neighborhoods would place you about an hour away from uptown Charlotte, but with so many working in their homes now a days, it doesn’t seem to slow the sales down.

The premiere area to look for Charlotte gated communities would be in the Southpark area of town, which is located midway between Ballantyne and Myers Park. All three of these areas are considered to be the best real estate sections of Charlotte due to shopping, upscale lifestyles and good school set ups.

Charlotte’s first true luxury neighborhood is Myers Park. It is home to those that need to be within minutes of center city. This includes political big wigs, attorney’s doctors, and a lot of the old money that set Charlotte on its way.

The first suburban neighborhood with shopping is Southpark. It abuts the Myers Park neighborhood. Today’s Southpark area is home to lots and lots of small gated communities all tucked in nicely amongst the trees. If you are not familiar with the neighborhoods, you’ll drive right past them.

The homes for sale listed in the Southpark area come in all shapes and sizes. For those that currently reside in the Charlotte market, the prices may seem a little heady, for those coming from other sections of the country, the home prices look good.

One of the most noted luxury communities in Southpark is Morrocroft. It is just across the street from the Southpark Mall, home to some of the area’s most prestigious boutiques and name brand stores. The gated community of Morrocroft is where the former NC Governor Morrison’s farm once existed. And, to note, his hunting grounds were just about six miles further south, on what is now known as the Ballantyne area.

The homes in Morrocroft are large stately homes sitting on estate sized lots. They border two sides of the street and are in a true gated community with guards on site.

One of the best hidden Charlotte NC luxury gated communities is Courance. It, too, is located in Southpark, but tucked deep behind Pellyn Wood. Courance was developed by David Simonini and is his masterpiece. Courance brings to life a rustic French village, with just 17 meticulously crafted homes, a lake with a walking path, gas lanterns, cobblestone streets, and outdoor fountains are all part of what contributes to making this little community an exceptional one in the Charlotte marketplace.

One of the most prestigious gated communities near Charlotte, is located in Waxhaw. It is The Longview Country Club. Longview also has guards at the gate. This is a luxury gated golf course community on a Jack Nicklaus signature course. It’s 28,000 square foot clubhouse sets the stage for the home designs of the entire neighborhood, which is based on old European estates.

The name comes from the 1800’s from the Longview Black Jack Farm. For those in the know (with regards to Charlotte luxury real estate) the land is most known for being home to Mel Graham’s Dad’s family dairy farm. In 2003, it opened as The Club at Longview and Reverend Billy Graham performed the dedication with Jack Nicklaus standing by his side.

Going just seven miles south of Ballantyne, will bring you another gated neighborhood known as Sun City Carolinas. It’s actually in Lancaster, SC, but no most folks will find it on the Internet under Sun City Carolina. This is an active age gated community by Del Webb, most known for putting everything they can in to the activities an active age adult would like. This one is no different with a 40,000 square foot clubhouse, over 135 social clubs, indoor and outdoor pools, a dog park, tennis, bocce ball, and pickleball courts, the only thing holding you back is you have to be 55 or older.

For those looking for Charlotte homes for sale in gated communities, you may want to broaden your search to include Charlotte homes with onsite security. The Ballantyne Country Club does not have gates or guards, but they do have on-site private security that is in place 24/7. The neighborhood splits two sides of the street, much like Longview, and Morrocroft do.

The other thing one could look for in Charlotte NC gated communities, would be the enclaves located within larger communities that are not entirely gated. A good example of this is within The Piper Glen Country Club. This golf course community is just a couple of miles from Ballantyne, and it has several different enclaves within it, two of which would are private gated communities.  Greenhurst at Piper Glen consists of full brick patio homes, where The Greens at Piper Glen are luxury homes on compact lots, most offering the Master Bedroom on the main level.

Charlotte NC luxury real estate in gated communities is also found down in the Lake Wylie area at River Hills where you can enjoy both the golf course and the lake, along with lower SC tax rates. Going to the north of Charlotte, you’ll find gated communities in Cabarrus County and at Lake Norman. Charlotte is a large market that spreads over quite a bit of land. If you hire a good real estate agent, they will be able to help you locate all the Charlotte homes for sale in gated communities that work for your home shopping needs.
