You are going to love Charlotte! There is literally something for everyone here. There are a number of luxury communities in the area, many gated. What will appeal to you the most will depend on the lifestyle you are looking for. If you love the urban feel of a city, Uptown would be your target area. If you are looking for more of a suburban lifestyle, look in the SouthPark & Ballantyne Country Club areas. Love the idea of living on a lake? Try The communities of The Point & The Pennisula on Lake Norman.
Quiet frankly, your best bet is to come down for a visit before you commit to any rental property. You need to be able to see the surrounding areas and the amenities, such as grocery & restaurants that may or may not be close by!

Best success with your search!
