Why is Stonehaven the Perfect Charlotte Neighborhood?

On the Move Charlotte is hosting two BRAND NEW open houses in Stonehaven this weekend – both homes are fantastic buys and won’t last long! Why is Stonehaven fast becoming one of the most popular neighborhoods in Charlotte?

In two words…why not?

Stonehaven is one of the city’s most established neighborhoods (think: large lots and huge, grown trees!) and it’s located close to everything. Cotswold shopping center, McAlpine Creek Greenway, and the entrance to 485 are just seconds from much of the neighborhood. Homes here are well constructed and you’ll find a wide variety of styles, from brick ranch charmers to two-story siding homes.

But the best thing about Stonehaven if you ask us? It’s the community. Several of us on the On the Move Charlotte team actually live in Stonehaven ourselves and are proud to experience the true “neighborhood” feel day in and day out. There’s an active neighborhood association, various clubs and groups (Bunco! Running clubs! Multi-family yard sales!), and the kids in the neighborhood especially love the two area swim clubs.

Sardis Swim and Racquet Club and Rama Swim and Racquet Club are both easily accessible by Stonehaven residents. This time of year marks their most bustling season – particularly if you have kids on either swim team! These activity clubs are where many Stonehaven residents socialize and meet their neighbors and, we think, one of the biggest draws of the area.

So, if you’re ready to move to a neighborhood in Charlotte that actually feels like a community, give us a call. Or better yet, come visit one of our two fabulous open houses in Stonehaven this weekend – both open Saturday AND Sunday!

“We’ve Gotten a Chance to Make This House Into a Home”

The sellers at 711 Ashmeade Road have made many, many memories
in their first family home.

It’s time for them to transition to a different house, but we asked them to tell us
a little bit about why they’ve loved living here so much…

Front
Q: What made you most excited about your home when you purchased it? 

It is a solid, well-built home.  We were excited about rolling up our sleeves, getting to work and seeing the transformation.  From the deck to the hardiplank siding to the granite counter-tops in the kitchen, we’ve gotten a chance to make this house into our home.  Yard

Q: What will you miss most about your home?
The bay window in the kitchen, the screened porch, the deck.  We have spent lots of time enjoying the private wooded backyard and our children have made many memories outside.  
 
Q: What is something nearby that you enjoyed the most?  
Getting involved in the neighborhood has been wonderful.  From playgroups to Bunco and Halloween parades and Easter Egg hunts, the neighborhood has it all.  We’ve made life-long friends with neighbors, both young and old.  We love being close to a great playground, biking to Poppy’s for a bagel, visiting the pet store and toy store at Cotswold shopping center, etc.
 
Q: Anything special to share with the family who purchases it?
We brought our two children home from the hospital to this house. We pushed them on swings hung in the magnolia out front.  It has been a wonderful home and I am sure the next family will feel the same way.

Inside the Mind of a Seller

frontWe’re holding an open house at
6534 Ciscayne Place THIS Sunday, October 27th from 2:00-4:00pm.

The fabulous home was recently reduced to $289,900 – you won’t find a better deal in the Stonehaven/Medearis area. 6534 Ciscayne with 4 BR/2.5 BA has all a growing family could want including a sitting porch, an all-new kitchen, and a half-acre lot with lots of privacy.

We took some time to talk to the sellers of 6534 Ciscayne Place…

Q: What made you most excited about your home when you purchased it? 
The front porch.  We pictured ourselves after the kids were grown sitting out on the front porch sipping lemonade.

Q: What will you miss most about your home?  
The thing I will miss most is working in the kitchen and looking out the window into the backyard to see the kids playing on the playset, exploring in the “forest” or riding their bikes on the driveway.

Deck

Q: What is something nearby that you enjoyed the most?  
Our neighbors, the swim club, Boyce Park.  There is a great sense of community in the neighborhood.

Q: Anything special to share with the family who purchases it?
We hope the next family loves this house as much as we did.  It always felt like home to us and we will have a hard time finding another house that feels the same way.  (Great, now you’ve got me crying!)
