One of southeast Charlotte’s most popular hidden jewels, Sherwood Forest was established in the 1950s. Filled with brick ranches, this neighborhood stretches from Sharon Amity toward Sardis Road. Always popular, Sherwood Forest is now seeing huge leaps in appreciation. As older residents move out, the new buyers are blowing it out, taking these simple homes and adding high style: tossing out the old pine panelling, vaulting ceilings and turning carports into master suites. You’ll find traditional ranches and split-levels on this neighborhoods wide winding streets. If you are looking for homes with a mid-century modern flare check out the atomic ranches and modern homes on the west side of the neighborhood off Rama Road.
