Elizabeth North Carolina
Homes for Sale and Real Estate

Area Description

“The breezes of heaven blow their freshest, the light of the sun is at it brightest in this favored neighborhood.” The Charlotte Evening Chronicle published those words about Elizabeth back in 1910. Now, more than a century later, stroll through the beautiful oak-lined streets of Elizabeth and there's no doubt that it remains a favored Charlotte neighborhood. Nestled right outside of Uptown, Elizabeth draws homebuyers with its historic homes and prime location. Melding into Elizabeth, the Chantilly neighborhood is equally enchanting. Genevieve Williams, agent with Savvy + Co., has lived in Chantilly for eight years and says it’s often referred to as “Little Elizabeth.”  From beautiful turn-of-the-century bungalows to modern renovated condos, Elizabeth and Chantilly offer something for everyone. Sarah Kelley, agent with Premier Sotheby’s International Realty, has lived in Elizabeth for four years. “My favorite part about living here has to be the trees and the old homes,” she says. Charlotte’s signature oaks provide shade for Elizabeth residents to walk to parks and nearby restaurants and shops.

Around the Area

Elizabeth and Chantilly’s walkability is a big draw for homebuyers, says Lexie Longstreet, agent with Savvy + Co. Real Estate. One popular spot for residents is Independence Park, Charlotte’s first public park. Established around the same time as Elizabeth in 1907, the park now features walking trails, play areas and a must-see rose garden. For a delicious bite to eat, walk over to The Cajun Queen, a New Orleans-inspired restaurant serving up Deep South dishes like shrimp and grits and seafood gumbo. On any given night you can find locals on the Cajun Queen’s rooftop terrace enjoying drinks and listening to live jazz. Aside from Elizabeth and Chantilly’s walkability and variety of dining options, Elizabeth is also a medical hub. The neighborhood is home to Novant Health’s Presbyterian Hospital as well as Carolina Medical Center’s Mercy Hospital, which Longstreet says has attracted many medical professionals to live in the affluent area.
