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 sign

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

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!

What’s So Great About Living in Stonehaven?

In a word: everything.

Stonehaven is situated squarely in the most desirable part of south Charlotte, close to dining, shopping, and great schools. It’s one of the most sought-after areas in the city and for good reason…few other neighborhoods offer such a feeling of community just 15 minutes outside of Uptown! Bordered by Sardis and Rama Roads, Stonehaven is an enclave for families full of large lots, stately homes, and though it’s growing fast there are still a few deals to be found.

Stonehaven is Close to Everything You Need

meridian placeWhat’s nearby? A better question is what’s not nearby. Restaurants like Thai Orchid, Eddie’s Place, and Juliana Pizza are close by with dozens more to boot. Even Carolina Cinemas just underwent a facelift and is now serving food and drinks! A five minute drive from the entire Southpark area as well as Cotswold and the Strawberry Hill shopping center (who can get enough of Fresh Market?), Stonehaven doesn’t lack for shopping, either. Imagine taking a long walk down the tree-lined McAlpine Greenway then finishing the night with a dip in one of the community pools. What about spending the evening at one of the neighborhood’s “First Friday” events, or playing tennis at one of the area’s racquet clubs? Stonehaven has an active community association that stays on top of the area’s many amenities, green spaces, and activities and the dedication shows. This is truly a great place to live.

Best of all, the nearby development called Meridian Place is expected to bring dozens of new dining options, residential units, healthcare facilities, and offices. Spread over 20 acres at Independence and Monroe Roads, the development is set to transform this part of Charlotte. The entire community is designed around transportation connectivity – the Light Rail is close – as well as accessibility to schools, commercial, and more. Stonehaven is poised to become even more desirable once the close by Meridian Place is complete.

Is This the Best Deal in Stonehaven?

One of our favorite listings, 6601 Ronda Avenue, is among the best deals left in Stonehaven. At only $260,000 for 3BR/2BA and over 2,000 square feet of living space, this home is truly a bargain. With a bonus room, vaulted ceiling with beams, and a large cul-de-sac lot, this home offers the best of Stonehaven. Privacy and accessibility, both at the same time!

Call us today to see 6601 Ronda Avenue for yourself (or click here for a video tour!) before this fantastic deal is gone. Turns out, Stonehaven is exactly the neighborhood you’ve been looking for!
