Berkeley Neighborhood – What’s the Scoop?
So what is the big draw of Berkeley neighborhood in South Charlotte, NC? I think most families love the stately, traditional homes and large 1/3 acre + lots. When you drive around through the neighborhood, you feel a sense of belonging. Families walk their dogs, push strollers, ride bikes, decorate their homes for all the holidays, and join in the fun at neighborhood socials. The residents welcome everyone, and pride of ownership shows in Berkeley!
Additionally, Berkeley’s top-ranked public schools attract families who value the impact of great neighborhood schools. Top schools not only provide a top-notch education, but they also help keep property values steady. You can’t underestimate the power of great schools!
Also, Berkeley’s great LOCATION is a huge draw. Located near the intersection of Ballantyne Commons Parkway and Providence RD (Highway 16), Berkeley is close to everything you need: grocery stores, department stores and boutiques, restaurants and cafes, movie theaters and sports activities, and so much more. Do you commute to Uptown Charlotte, Ballantyne or Southpark? The Berkeley neighborhood enjoys an ideal location – close to main commuter corridors, but not too close! It’s about a 30-45 minute commute to Charlotte Douglas International airport (depending on traffic!)
Some of my favorite things to do around the Berkeley neighborhood are:
- Eat at Cajun Yard Dog at the Arboretum
- Catch a movie and appetizers at Cinebarre at the Arboretum
