If you love Charleston or simply appreciate attention to detail in a home then Ballantyne's Ardrey neighborhood is just for you with its homes reminiscent of the historic American architecture seen in Charleston like double decker front porches and 3-story narrow homes.
The 349-home Ballantyne community is located off Ardrey Kell Road between Marvin and Rea roads. Its fantastic South Charlotte central location is close to Ballantyne Village, Blakeney and Stonecrest.
A trip Uptown for work or play is made easier by convenient access to I-485 at Rea or Johnston roads. Rea Road to Colony Road also brings you to the heart of SouthPark in less than 25 minutes. Shopping, dining, entertainment and 2 YMCA locations - Ballantyne Village and Morrison Family YMCA - are right down the street!
The Cunnane Group built the neighborhood in the early 2000s with nature and lifestyle in mind. Ardrey has 53 acres of open common space, a dog park, playground, 12 named parks and a 35-acre nature preserve. Ardrey was the city's first "tree-save" community so many of the land's mature trees remain on the property. In addition, the neighborhood has a community pool and clubhouse for resident use.
Homes in Ardrey are on the larger side at more than 3,000 square feet. Unlike Charleston, however, all these homes have attached garages.

Ardrey is zoned for Elon Park Elementary School, Community House Middle School and Ardrey Kell High School. All of the schools are less than a mile from the neighborhood, which is another reason to love living in Ardrey!
