We live close in to "uptown" Charlotte - 2 miles in fact - in Dilworth, Charlotte's oldest neighborhood. The area is historic and wonderful - close to everything and quiet w/ a ton of charm. We are within Mecklenburg Co schools and zoned for Eastover Elementary, Alexander Graham Middle and Myers Park High School. All are said to be wonderful schools. SO many private options await you as well - about 15K average per year. Charlotte Country Day School, Charlotte Latin, Providence Day School and Trinity Day School are some of the best around.
