You might forget how close you are to big city amenities when you settle into a more rural lifestyle in Waxhaw's Quellin neighborhood.
The residential community is located between Waxhaw-Marvin and Providence roads just north of downtown Waxhaw.
All of your daily necessities are just a few minutes away at Kensington Drive and Providence Road, where there is a Lowe's, Wal-Mart and Harris Teeter.
It's a quick 15-minute drive into Ballantyne and about 35 minutes to Uptown Charlotte without traffic.
Quellin, which was built in the early 2000s, is adjacent to the popular Cureton neighborhood.
Residents of the 260-home neighborhood can enjoy many amenities, including a large pool and small children's splash pool, playground, basketball hoop and pond with walking trails. Quellin residents can also take advantage of the beautiful Residents' Club adjacent to the pool.
