“NoDa, The Art’s District, is a very diverse community that attracts all age groups. Young professionals, families with kids and empty nesters who want the vibrant neighborhood feel all live here,” says Dana. Let her walk you through the possibilities.

Ditch the car, take the light rail

With all NoDa has to offer, you never have to leave. However, if you do find the need to venture out or go to work to keep your bank account from sending a low balance alert, the world is a short walk away at 36th Street station.”The light rail coming to NoDa is going to be a great way for people who haven’t wanted to drive and park here to come in and enjoy our little slice of Charlotte,” says Dana.

If you snatched up this little beauty at 3622 Oakwood Avenue for the list price of $312,500 not only would you love the beautiful hardwood floors, killer kitchen with stainless steel appliances, center island AND rocking chair front porch, could leave road rage behind and find your zen on the light rail to Uptown or University City for work or play. While this NoDa home is under contract, Dana knows where you can find more.

Dogs and beer

Do you like dogs and beer? Or just dogs or just beer, or maybe having a beer with your dog? You can find it all in NoDa. “With the additions of new restaurants, breweries, and the light rail, there is something for everyone in NoDa,” says Dana. All of these delightful combinations can become part of your daily routine when you have a NoDa address in popular Steel Gardens for the list price of $334,500.
