Ballantyne Homes for Sale and Real Estate

Area Description

Nearly 20 miles south of Uptown Charlotte, just north of the South Carolina border, sits the ever-growing, highly esteemed community of Ballantyne. From its expansive luxury estates and rolling, green golf courses to its wide array of high-end dining and shopping options, Ballantyne has easily earned itself a reputation as the destination for upscale suburban living. More than two decades ago, Ballantyne was a 2,000-acre remote patch of land that served as the Morrison family hunting preserve. Today, Ballantyne is mini-city with a mind of its own. Christine Hotham, agent with Helen Adams Realty, pleasantly refers to Ballantyne as a “bubble.” It has its own luxury resort, high-performing schools, a YMCA, a variety of high-end shopping areas, a surge of new home construction and a corporate park with national and local headquarters for large companies like SPX, ESPN regional television and MetLife. Residents have everything they could need and more without ever venturing inside the I-485 beltline.
