South Park, North Carolina

Known for the upscale mall, SouthPark is the definition of classy. The mall opened in 1970 andfeatures many high end designer stores such as Burberry, Lacoste, Kate Spade and much more. Some famous restaurants located at the mall are The Cheesecake Factory and Maggiano’s.

Before the mall was built in 1970, the area was farmland owned by NC governor, Cameron Morrison. The Morrocraft Mansion was the heart of the farm and was Morrison’s home. The home is registered on the National Register of Historic Places.

Not only does the shopping draw locals to SouthPark but the dining options do as well. Many restaurants around the SouthPark area are on Charlotte’s best eatery lists. Upstream, Zebra Restaurant & Wine Bar and Georges Brasserie are all favorites on this side of town.

A summertime favorite since 1983 are musical performances by Charlotte Symphony Orchestra called, “Pops in the Park.” There are five concerts; all during the summer on Sundays and are at Symphony Park at SouthPark Mall.

For families living in the SouthPark area, children will attend either South Mecklenburg or Myers Park High School districts.

Barclay Downs

As one of Charlotte’s most sought-after neighborhoods, Barclay Downs boasts an excellent location, on the Myers Park side of SouthPark. It is just blocks from the Myers Park school campus, so it is very popular with busy parents. These homes were mostly built in the 1950s and ‘60s. Their solid construction has been improved by beautifully planned remodeling and renovation. Homes here range from those in need of renovation and those that are already show places, and generally run $320,000-$830,000 for between 2,000-3,500 square feet.

Foxcroft

These are some of Charlotte’s most beautiful homes, and their location is only one favorable attribute of many. Nestled between Eastover and SouthPark, Foxcroft was where the heirs of “old money” moved in the sixties. Lots are large – on average over a half acre – and the houses consist mostly of classic ranches and two stories. In the past, you could also find unique custom-built modern architecture scattered throughout the neighborhood. Unfortunately, many of these unusual homes are being torn down and replaced with three story French Provencials and Tudors. Luckily, you can still find it all in Foxcroft – a beautifully remodeled ranch from the 1950s, a classic tri-level, or solidly built new-construction with all the bells and whistles you would expect. Homes range between $550,000 and $1.5 million, with most homes coming in at more than 3,000 square feet.
