One of the hippest ‘hoods in Charlotte, Midwood, sits at the intersection of classic and cool. Established in the early 1900s, Plaza Midwood was originally planned to be Charlotte’s next Myers Park. Designed around a trolley line that ran from downtown, this neighborhood began with large craftsman bungalows that lined The Plaza. After the war home styles changed to quaint cottages that filled deeper into the neighborhood. Now, new construction replicating the homes of the past blends right in. Midwood’s popularity continues to grow as its restaurants, bars and shops thrive. Don’t miss Southern comfort food at Dish or Carolina BBQ at Midwood Smokehouse. Before you leave stop at The Common Market for an interesting retro browse. Without a doubt, some of the city’s coolest hot spots are tucked into Plaza Midwood’s walkable streets.
Midwood Price Points:
Prices runs between $150,000 to near a million for homes that border the Charlotte Country Club. A renovated three-bedrooms, two-bath bungalow will fetch $350,000 and up.
