Elizabeth was one of Charlotte’s most fashionable residential areas in the early 1900’s and remains so today. Ranked Charlotte’s most pedestrian-friendly neighborhood with a walk score of 72 (the Charlotte average is 34), you’ll find businesses and residences are in close proximity and most roads with sidewalks. Home to the first public park in the city, Independence Park, Elizabeth has approximately 4,000 residents with a substantial portion of the neighborhood listed on the National Register of Historic Places. From lovely old homes to condos and townhomes, Elizabeth is a hip place to call home!
The Elizabeth Community Association is the nucleus of the community. The members organize many events throughout the year including a Progressive Dinner, Easter Egg Hunt, Home and Garden Tour, Art in the Hood and 8 K Road Race.
Lining Elizabeth Avenue are some of the finest/hip restaurants. Enjoy fine dining at Carpe Diem and The Custom Shop, Italian-esque fare at Passion 8 or skyline views at the trendy Loft 1523. Earls Grocery and the Creamery are not to be missed as you stroll down the avenue.
The revitalization will not be complete till the street car line runs through the heart of this oasis only blocks from uptown. The street will be graced with glass-walled trolley waiting stations. The street car will end in Elizabeth. Elizabeth is home to Presbyterian Hospital, Presbyterian Orthopedic Hospital and numerous medical offices, making it a highly desirable residential neighborhood for members of the medical community. It is also the location for Charlotte’s largest and most respected community college -- Central Piedmont Community College. RETURN TO ELIZABETH CHARLOTTE NEIGHBORHOOD HOMES FOR SALE SEARCH
