Chantilly is one of Charlotte’s fastest-growing neighborhoods.
Affectionately known as “little Elizabeth,” Chantilly has a flavor all its own. Located between Plaza Midwood and the Elizabeth neighborhoods in Midtown Charlotte, Chantilly was originally developed in the 1940s. Now its streets are lined with mature trees and beautifully restored craftsman-style homes, bustling with families and young professionals.
Many of Chantilly’s homes are in the craftsman style, some of which have been lovingly restored to their former glory. There’s also a lot of new construction in Chantilly but the neighborhood is growing gracefully – even the newest homes fit the streets’ aesthetics. Bordered by Independence Boulevard and Briar Creek, Chantilly is incredibly convenient to Uptown Charlotte as well as entrances to I-77 and I-277.
A few of the best features of Charlotte’s Chantilly neighborhood include…
Chantilly Park is easily accessed by foot from most parts of the neighborhood. It’s 7 full acres of green space and includes a volleyball court, multi-purpose field, and even a playground. On weekends, the park teems with activity and the entire neighborhood is very dog friendly.
Independence Park is one of the best parks in the city. Home to numerous festivals throughout the year (including Petpalooza!), the park has over 19 acres of picnic areas, playgrounds, and soccer fields. It’s an easy walk from Chantilly and there are plenty of dining options nearby, too.
Proximity to Shopping:
Chantilly Shopping Center has many retail offerings and 7th Avenue is an easy walk from most parts of Chantilly. Seventh is the beginning of the Elizabeth district and hosts tons of shops, convenience stores, and salons.
Between Elizabeth and Independence, dining options abound just outside the residential streets of Chantilly. Kennedy’s Irish Pub, Crisp, Starbucks, and even fine dining at The Fig Tree are all within striking distance. Independence has dozens of fantastic ethnic restaurants, fast food options, and even a farmer’s stand.
The quiet, tree-lined streets of Chantilly are the perfect setting to raise a family. There’s a flourishing neighborhood association and the neighborhood’s on its way to commissioning signs to mark its borders. Chantilly is also close to several houses of worship as well as Novant Health (formerly Presbyterian Hospital.)
The average home for sale in Chantilly is listed around $350,000 and home values continue to rise. As development resumes in and around the neighborhood, homes in Chantilly aren’t staying on the market for long, particularly the pristine crafstmans that populate the neighborhood. Many of the homes in Chantilly must stick to historical guidelines when being redone, so homes here retain a lot of character.
