Mint Hill, to the east of Charlotte, is a haven for families looking
for upscale residential homes. Mint Hill has been mostly a mid
range price housing community. However, in the past year or two
Mint Hill has begun to attract the higher price range Builder,
including custom Builders. The beltway, I-485 circles the outer
edges of this town. Excellent Golf Courses including The Divide,
Olde Sycamore and Emerald Lake are within 2 miles of the city.
The traffic is not as intense as other parts of Mecklenburg County
and Mint Hill still feels a little like part of the country. New
shopping centers arise as new subdivisions open. The town retains
a largely rural feel, and home sites have large lots--many of
which lie in golf course communities.
