Around the Block

Ballantyne is best known for its affluent crowd, shopping centers, high-end business parks, hotels, new development, and luxury suburban lifestyle.

It’s being called “Ballantyne Reimagined” for a reason. What was once a sleepy pocket off 485 heading toward South Carolina has quickly blossomed into one of the newest and hottest premiere living spots in all of the region. Drawing an affluent buyer, you’ll find shopping centers, national retailers, dining, premiere public schools, hotels, and even small skyscrapers.

What to expect:
Quiet neighborhoods, a family community, buzzing shopping centers with weekend activities, and new development.

It’s a suburban storybook backdrop - cul-de-sacs filled with kids playing, neighborhood gators and golf carts cruising by, and the smell of charcoal. Couple that with nearby shopping, dining, and entertainment, including endless community activities like Yoga & Mimosas, the Blakeney Wine Walk, and a summer concert series - and Ballantyne has it all. Not to mention, Ballantyne is really a mini, suburban city with new buildings sprouting from the ground at almost every turn.

The lifestyle:
Upscale with access to shopping centers like Ballantyne Village, Ballantyne Commons and Blakeney Village, along with private clubs like Ballantyne Country Club and Providence Country Club.

Whether it’s a round of 18 at Ballantyne Country Club, or a treat-yourself shopping day hitting Talbot’s or the Banana Republic, your priority is proximity. Endless eating options run rampant in Ballantyne as well. There’s a spot for every craving you’ve ever had - then there’s opportunity to shed the calories at the Morrison YMCA.

Unexpected appeal:
The world-class Ballantyne Hotel - perfect for staycations, spa treatments, and more.

Given the rapidly growing business parks and influx of professionals to the area, Ballantyne has capitalized on the hospitality industry. The Ballantyne Hotel is a sight to see, and you’ll see it as soon as you exit off of 485. The nationally recognized, Triple-A Four-Diamond ranked hotel offers a full spa, 30,000 square feet of event venues (indoor & outdoor), and more.

The market:
A mix of handsome, brick estates, expansive homes and lots, big backyards, and new construction.

You’ll definitely know you’re in suburbia with the size of these homes and lots when compared to more dense areas of the Queen City. Ballantyne has experienced rapid growth and development over the years, contributing to new construction neighborhoods that feed into new schools like Ardrey Kell. In Ballantyne, it’s truly a luxury lifestyle that knows no limits.

You'll fall in love with:
Quick access to I-485 and everything the QC (and even the Palmetto State) have to offer.

While being close to an interstate may not usually spell luxury, high-end, or exclusive - Ballantyne is situated just far enough from Interstate-485, striking the perfect balance of connectivity and convenience, without the clutter. In a matter of minutes, you could be on the way to Carolina Place Mall in Pineville, Uptown, or South Carolina.
