Tucked in between Myers Park, Elizabeth and Charlotte’s center city is one of the city’s oldest African American neighborhoods. Closely held for over the last 20 years, it has been very difficult to even find a home for sale in Cherry. Recently, though, some homes have gone on the market, sold by longtime residents and investors. These homes sell in a matter of days, and the majority need a good deal of cosmetic or structural work. The homes that have been renovated have been done to perfection. Most keep the classic bungalow features: multiple fireplaces, large front porches and shingle style.
Cherry is ideally located within walking distance of Uptown and the mansions of Queens Road. This hidden gem is ripe for appreciation. Cherry is also home to The Metropolitan Midtown aka The Met, an urban community with shopping, dining, modern homes, and art. The Met has everything you need including Target, Trader Joe’s, Best Buy, Dressler’s Restaurant, Staples, and much more. The Greenway and Linear Park are right at The Met so you won’t have to go far to enjoy a walk in the park.
This ideal location and small availability of homes are pushing prices upward in Cherry. If you love to be where the action and growth are, you need to take a look at Cherry – just make sure you move fast! Homes are in the price range of $100,000-$350,000.
