To say the Charlotte neighborhood of Barclay Downs is a showcase for some of the Piedmont's most perfect examples of mid-century architecture would be an understatement. In its heyday, Barclay Downs was one of the Charlotte area's most elite neighborhoods. It has only improved with time, which is why homes here are always in demand. From white brick, hip, one-stories to classic brick ranch homes and classic Georgian, Tudor and Colonial styles, Barclay Downs is a stunning, eclectic combination of unique properties.
Comprised of over 450 single-family homes, the subdivision is a wonderful mix of original and new residents that includes families, young professionals and retirees. And no wonder-housing options run the gamut, from affordable starter homes to stately executive mansions. Many of these homes were built from the late 1950s through the early 1970s. For that reason alone, they are solid and were built to last!
Over the years, these homes may have changed hands a few times, but each one has been lovingly maintained and meticulously updated. Elegant fixtures and lush hardwoods such as walnut and mahogany are always a treat to discover in these timeless classics! Expect to see plenty of granite, imported tile, professional grade appliances and energy-saving features as well. Savvy house hunters will want to stay on top of current listings in Barclay Downs, since prices range from the affordable mid $400s to over $1 million (subject to change).
Located just north of SouthPark Mall, Barclay Downs is a short walk to top-rated schools, a swim and tennis club, a regional library and numerous shops and restaurants. Health conscious homebuyers will be please to know there is also a Whole Foods and an Earthfare nearby!
United by a hardworking HOA whose mission is to: "promote good fellowship among neighbors, and to protect and improve the neighborhood", Barclay Downs residents are a tightly-knit bunch! In addition to fun and fellowship activities such as picnics and block parties, the HOA also promotes a neighborhood crime watch, landscaping enhancement projects and maintains a Facebook page.
If this sounds exactly like the type of neighborhood that you've been dreaming of, we'd love to show you a listing or two!
