Ballantyne Real Estate

Ballantyne is one of the fastest-growing areas in South Charlotte, with a community spanning approximately 2,000 acres within the city and along the South Carolina border. It began in the early 1990s, when Johnny Harris decided to expand on what was once a hunting preserve, buying acreage from his neighbors and commercially rezoning it to eventually become a part of Charlotte in 1997. Large enough to function as its own town, Ballantyne’s 25-minute commute to uptown Charlotte, 21-minute commute to Charlotte Douglas International Airport, and close proximity to both I-485 and I-77 makes it the ideal location for those seeking a community feel without being removed completely from the city.
The residents of Ballantyne enjoy a small area vibrant with nightlife and restaurants, thanks to Ballantyne Village; with over 20 different restaurants and cafes and a schedule that includes live music and art programs, there is something for every resident. Located just half a mile from communities such as Kingston Forest and Ballantyne Country Club, Ballantyne Village is a quick and easy way to indulge in the area’s lifestyle.
Along with discovering new restaurants and activities, Ballantyne encourages its residents to get up, get out, and be active! With attractions such as the Dana Rader Golf School at the Golf Club of Ballantyne, one of Golf World Magazine’s Top 50 Golf Resorts, it’s easy. Not only does Ballantyne offer some of North Carolina’s best golf communities, but it is also home to Ballantyne Corporate Park. The Park, along with its fitness trail, pocket parks, and ponds, offers its visitors annual events such as the Ballantyne Festival – Autumn in the Park, the community’s signature fall family event, which includes a chili cook-off, games, music, beer, and an oyster roast. The full list of annual events can be found here.
Education is important, and Ballantyne offers plenty of great choices, most within the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools community: Endhaven Elementary, Ballantyne Elementary, Elon Park Elementary, Hawk Ridge Elementary, Community House Middle, South Charlotte Middle, Ardrey Kell High, and South Mecklenburg High. Private schools include Charlotte Christian, Charlotte Country Day, Charlotte Latin, and Charlotte Providence Day. For those interested in higher education, nearby institutions include the Art Institute of Charlotte, Central Piedmont Community College, Queens University, and University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
The Ballantyne community offers a variety of home styles and price ranges, including single-family homes, apartments, condominiums, and large luxury homes, that range from $200,000-$2,900,000. Its builders include Knight Residential Group, Simonini Custom Homes, Shea Homes, Lennar, David Weekly, Toll Brothers, M/I Homes, Ryan Homes, and Saussy Burbank.
