Lansdowne: Charlotte's Mid-Century Style

Lansdowne is one of Charlotte's few neighborhoods with a great selection of Mid-Century Modern architecture.  Ideally located between Providence and Sardis Roads this neighborhood's large lots and wide roads has made it one of Charlotte's favorites.  Take a drive thru the neighborhood and you'll see any number of great examples of MCM homes.  There are also a number of sleek Atomic Ranches and Charlotte's favorite the Atomic Split Level.  Many of the houses are still in their original condition just waiting for the next wave of modern enthusiast to do the updates.  Some have already found lucky home owners who are keeping the MCM style but making them family friendly.

Lansdowne's proximity to center city Charlotte (about a 20 minute drive door to door), Southpark, Cotswold and the Arboretum, really add to it's appeal.  Within minutes you can be at some of Charlotte's best shopping and entertainment venues. It is also home to Charlotte's Jewish Community Center.  This activity hub offers a fitness center, arts and music classes and adult and youth sports leagues.  The other real selling point to the neighborhood is convience and excellent repuation of the IB magnet Lansdowne Elementary School.   Many of the residents walk their kids to school... just like in the good old days.
