Since I am not competing for your business as the rest are, Weddington is a good choice. However be very careful of the schools that your children will be going to. There are new school popping up and they dont have the same "pull" as some of the others. You would want your children in the Marvin Ridge/Weddington High zoning area. I moved down here about 5 years ago. If you should have any questions please feel free to e-mail me.
You are going to love it down there. My brother moved down to south charlotte from New Jersey 2 years ago. He bought a new construction house in a lakefront community, and he loves it. He's about 1 mile from the border of South Carolina. The area he lives in is a rapidly growing area. Check out riverpointe and the palisades. The Lot sizes might be a little smaller, but the neighborhoods are very nice and safe. If you like to go fishing, lake wylie is close by and a very good bass fishing lake. Some nice golf courses around as well. The house my brother bought has 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths, 4000 square feet and is 1 block from the lake. Under 450k. The community has it's own marina for people that have boats. The slips only cost around $600 a year. Much more enjoyable lifestyle down there. Good luck with the move. It's definitely the right choice if you have the job waiting for you.

I am not "from here" either. I am a Californian, and did a 5yr stint in Michigan as well...I have NO problem fitting in, in fact... I've met and befriended more people from other places, then I have any from North Carolina. There are SO many northerners here...
Weddington is a great area... have you considered looking north of Charlotte, in the Lake Norman area? I'm biased as this is where I "chose" to move but the lake is great and there are so many areas where you can find larger plot's of land AND good schools... in Denver, Mooresville...etc. If you don't specifically have to be "in" Charlotte, check it out up north a bit...
Good luck, North Carolina is a nice place to be!
Not practicing in Charlotte I guess it is an unbiased opinion. I use to live in Charlotte in years past and was actually born there. I guess it depends on what you are looking for and what part of Charlotte you want to be near for work or whatever. There as you can see by the answers lots of great areas. I guess we would all just need a bit more information.
You and your family will love the NC region. From the pro sports to being right in the middle of the beaches and the mountains. Weddington, Wesley Chapel, Indian Trail and Matthews are all areas that have highly rated schools. I would be happy to have our Team Manager send you all of the school report cards in case you do not have them readily available to your family. Our team would love the opportunity to help your family settle into your new home in the area.
You can reach us anytime.

Not only are there properties to fit your base criteria in Weddington. You may want to consider the surrounding areas as well - Marvin, Wesley Chapel, Waxhaw. These are all the fastest growing communities in Union County. I am a native of this area and my office is in Ballantyne. Please call or contact me with all of your questions and real estate needs. If you are interested in new construction or resale I can help with both. I am familiar with all of the public schools in the area as well as the private schools. I encourage you to check out my link below - you'll learn more about my philosophies and what has made me a successful Realtor. I look forward to hearing from you, Beth.
Charlie. I would like to recommend Belmont to you and your family. Belmont is about 15 minutes west of uptown Charlotte. The schools are wonderful here but I would recommend that you research them on http://www.ncreportcards.org/src/ . Belmont is a small town outside of charlotte and very family friendly....just check out our parks and rec website to see for yourself.... http://www.belmontparksandrec.com/ You also get a little more home for your money her too. Please call me if you are interested in visiting. patti cell 704-813-8739
Weddington would certainly fit the bill. There are other parts of Union county which would also work well for you. I would need to know more about your requirements, for example, where will you be working and how long of a commute do you want? This is an important consideration because the traffic here during rush hour is terrible. Let me give you an example you could expect to take 45 minutes to get to uptown Charlotte from Matthews during rush hour. So if you don't want a longer commute then you need to stay inside the I-485 belt. So it really depends on where you will be working and what is your price range. You can find lots of useful links on my website and neighborhood searches at http://www.TeresaQuinan.com, you will also find my contact information if you would like me to send you a relocation package and set you up on a personalized webpage to help you find a home. I look forward to hearing from you, good luck. Teresa.
Charlotte-metro is a great place to live for so many reason. Schools and great weather to recreate in are but two of those reasons. Weddington is wonderful, but there are few if any homes below $300k for sale. If you are in the market for a $500k and up home, then Weddington and Marvin are great places to look. If you still want the large lots but want to spent less, I recommend Matthews, Mint Hill, and southeast Charlotte.
You can visit http http://:www.SECharlotteHomeSearch and enter the parameters for the type home you are looking for and receive daily emails with a link to a live website with properties that match that are updated dynamically! It is a great way to view properties and stay up to date on them.
Good luck on your relocation wherever it takes you!!
Weddington and other areas of Union County, North Carolina are great communities for families looking for larger lots. The schools are great and the area has lots of amenities for families.
