I think this is a very good area because its basically in the middle of everything. without traffic, the city is about 15 minutes away while the country isn't very far either. There is a lot of construction going on around here that is going to bring in a lot of new restaurants and stores. Also, there are schools ranging from elementary to high school very close together in this area.

Hwy 74 is right across the street, which makes things pretty nosy.
I love living in Charlotte!
