Buying a Home In Charlotte's Ballantyne Neighborhood

Ballantyne is smack dab in the middle of the nation’s fifth most searched zip code and ranked one of the ‘best places to live in the country’ in 2013 by Realtor.com.  This 2,000-acre master-planned community in the heart of south Charlotte is located on a former hunting preserve. Developed on the farmland of the James J. Harris family estate, Ballantyne was created by Smokey Bissell's vision to ‘provide unparalleled access to live, work, play and stay.’ Clearly developers have gotten it right!  Ballantyne is also one of Charlotte's wealthiest ZIP codes according to Charlotte Business Journal and listed as one of the Queen City's “Boomburb,” neighborhoods that are home to younger families who live a busy, upscale lifestyle.

Representing the major hallmarks of Charlotte’s legacy, four 30-foot monuments celebrate the history and future of Charlotte as a transportation hub, technology hub, powerful financial district and place with strong character of human spirit. The community began to evolve in the mid-1990s with the construction of I-485 and rapidly advancing city limits as the Bissell and Harris families developed the land with the development of the neighborhood’s houses and office buildings in 1996.  Today, Ballantyne is recognized nationally as one of the most successfully designed and executed mixed use communities in the nation.

At the heart of Ballantyne is the Ballantyne Hotel and Resort, a four diamond gem that offers resort amenties where famous and infamous people have stayed. Fine dining, award winning spa, tennis, fitness and golf are at your fingertips. Dana Radar Golf School is front and center to the 18 hole PGA golf course where Dana was voted in the top 50 women instructors by Golf Magazine.
