My wonderful sellers are relocating to another city and have thoroughly enjoyed their time here in Charlotte. They have bittersweet emotions about their move as they have loved living in the Charlotte area. Most importantly, they feel that they made a wonderful selection when they purchased their home a few short years ago--including location, neighborhood and home. Their home, which is absolutely gorgeous, sits on a very large lot in southern Mecklenburg County and has provided them years of enjoyment. They graciously provided me a 'What will I miss' letter to publish here so that perspective buyers may have a deeper knowledge of this lovely home. I'm sure that the neighbors will miss these wonderful sellers/neighbors as well and I'm also certain that they'll welcome the new neighbors with open arms!
Thanks, David & Megan for sharing this so that buyers can glean a better understanding of how wonderful your community truly is. Lifestyle is so very important when selecting a home and it's nice for those relocating to the area to have a good reference of how centrally located your home is to everything Charlotte.
"Like you, our first interaction with this house was through an MLS report. We knew that we wanted to start a family and wanted a nice large house in one of Charlotte's best school districts. We fell in love immediately with the huge private lot, the personal access to Colonel Francis Beatty Park and the age of the neighborhood -- no cookie cutter lots or houses here!
Backing up to the park means that we get the best of both worlds - we have a large, quiet backyard when we want privacy and when we're feeling more social we can go sit out on the front lawn and chat with neighbors. We love enjoying all the established trees and grilling out on the huge back deck. Even when it's raining, we love to sit under the covered back porch and listen to the creek.
The neighborhood is small and lots of the families have children of various ages. Our son has small children his age to play with along with older teenagers who can babysit. Everyone spends their weekends outside. It's great living in a social neighborhood filled with kids of all ages.
Colonel Francis Beatty Park and its running trails, duck-filled lake (which our son loves!) and childrens' play area are literally just a hop across the creek (or a 3 minute drive if you aren't feeling adventurous!). We are one exit away from Stonecrest shopping center (and its movie theatre). We hang out there at its fountains and listen to free outdoor music on the weekends in the spring and summer (while eating Dean & Deluca -- one of our favorites). Being 5 minutes from a water park at the Siskey YMCA has been great on hot summer days. Despite all of that, our commutes to work (David in Uptown and Megan in Ballantyne) are short even during rush hour.
Now that we're leaving Charlotte, we realize that we will miss this house and this neighborhood the most. It is both perfectly private and secluded when we want it to be and close to everything Charlotte has to offer. We hope that whoever buys our home will enjoy it as much as our family has."
