Providence Plantation is one of South Charlotte’s most desirable neighborhoods.
Providence Plantation was originally founded in the 1970s as a commuter suburb for those working in metro Charlotte. Development was forward thinking and Providence Plantation’s large lots and tree-lined streets are still one of the area’s biggest draws. Few neighborhoods in Charlotte offer such a convenient location to raise a family!
Providence Plantation is more of a community than a neighborhood with tons of activities geared towards residents. Not only does the area have an award-winning swim and tennis club, the public schools that serve the neighborhood are among the highest-ranked in the state. On the Move Charlotte has noticed a sharp uptick in buyers looking specifically in Providence Plantation, so if you have questions about the area give us a call today.
A few of the best features of Charlotte’s Providence Plantation neighborhood include…
Providence Plantation sits at the apex of some of Charlotte’s best schools. Providence Springs Elementary is recognized as one of the best elementary schools in North Carolina, and Providence High School consistently scores well above-average in state rankings. There are a number of private schools and charter schools in the area as well providing parents with lots of options.
The social scene in Providence Plantation is incredibly active! Resident-organized groups are sprouting up like weeds including a Bunco group, a Supper Club, a Book Club, a Bridge Club, and several Playgroups for parents. There are groups for every age-bracket and family status with meetings as regularly as once a week or as infrequently as once every couple of months.
Dining, Shopping, and Recreation:
It’s hard to beat the location of Providence Plantation. Nestled between several large parks like the Colonel Francis Beatty Park and the Arthur Goodman Memorial Park, there’s no shortage of outdoor space near the neighborhood. There are several swim and golf clubs nearby, too, including Carmel Country Club and Cedarwood Country Club to the west. Charming downtown Matthews is less than 10 minutes drive, bustling with restaurants and shops, and Pineville is also a hop-skip-and-a-jump away. The Arboretum shopping center has just about every store and eatery a southerner could need, and SouthPark Mall is less than 15 minutes from the Plantation.
Providence Plantation residents are governed by an extremely active, productive home owners association. Dues are very low (currently less than $80 for the year) and cover everything from neighborhood security patrol to maintaining the heavily-landscaped entrances to the community.
The homes in Providence Plantation are graciously sized, many with large lots and extensive landscaping. There are new construction projects as well as established homes with charm – many of the houses are built in the brick traditional style. The median home price in Providence Plantation is currently around $440,000 but prices are rising as the area’s value increases. If you’re considering a long-term home for your family, now is the time to buy in Providence Plantation.
The neighborhood is situated just far enough outside the hustle and bustle of Charlotte’s busiest areas but close enough to make commuting into Uptown or Ballantyne a breeze. Most parts of the neighborhood are less than 5 minutes drive to the I-485 entrance and three miles from Providence Plantation lies the entrance to Independence Highway/74. Providence Road leads many residents straight from the neighborhood into Uptown many mornings.
