Davidson Real Estate
Davidson is truly a walkable, green community, located along the eastern shore of Lake Norman, just 20 miles north of Charlotte. Davidson prides itself on being pedestrian and bicycle friendly, with over 600 acres of open space alongside smartly planned residential developments. Home owners enjoy miles of greenways and walking trails connecting their neighborhoods. Home buyers look to Davidson for a peaceful place to live, work, and shop, while still being able to enjoy natural open spaces in the greater Charlotte area.
Conveniently located just off I-77, at the northern tip of Mecklenburg County, Davidson residents can easily travel to the Charlotte/Douglas International Airport and to Uptown Charlotte in about 30 minutes. There is, of course, plenty to do and see closer to home as well.
Davidson is home to Davidson College, a private liberal arts college that has graduated 23 Rhodes Scholars. In fact, the town, founded in 1837, was named after the college, which was called Presbyterian Davidson College at the time. The school was named for Brigadier General William Lee Davidson, a Mecklenburg County Revolutionary War hero.
Davidson offers a wide variety of shopping opportunities as well, including a number of unique shops in the downtown area. The South Main Sweet Shop and Davidson Chocolate Co. will please residents and visitors with a sweet tooth! Bicyclists and book enthusiasts will find everything they need at the Spirited Cyclist and Main Street Books, both located in the heart of historic downtown Davidson. The Rumor Mill Market on Depot Street features 80 local artisans showcasing antiques, home furnishings, and gifts, and a Saturday night music schedule.
Hungry residents and visitors will find an equally enticing variety of dining options throughout the Davidson area. Local restaurants include Flatiron Kitchen + Taphouse on South Main Street, Brickhouse Tavern on Delburg Street, and the more upscale North Harbor Club on North Harbor Place.
Home buyers and sellers are pleased that Davidson is different in such a positive way. All development requires public input sessions and the town as a whole believes in the importance of good design that maintains their green, walkable, and bicycle friendly nature. Davidson won the 2004 Smart Growth Award winner for Overall Excellence in town planning and design and the 2013 North Carolina Chapter of the American Planning Association’s “Great Main Street” Award.
