Quail Acres in South Charlotte is a smaller, mature enclave of homes tucked away off Ballantyne Commons Parkway near Raintree.
Begun in 1979, Quail Acres has only 144 homes and is surrounded on the back side by the Raintree golf course. There is a small pond within the neighborhood with a walking trail around it.
Being an older neighborhood, there are not resort-style amenities like some newer communities. The location, however, is central to South Charlotte's many nearby parks, playgrounds, YMCAs and country clubs.
I-485 access is very convenient from both Providence and Rea roads. The neighborhood is not far from Ballantyne, Weddington, Carolina Place and the Arboretum for shopping and dining. SouthPark is only 20 minutes away, and a commute Uptown is 45 minutes north on Providence Road.
Quail Acres is made up of cul de sac streets and lots are a little larger than average subdivision lots at about half of an acre. There are also smaller lots if you desire less outdoor maintenance.
