Mint Hill is a Quiet Bedroom Community

Mint Hill is a Quiet Bedroom Community

I know... I know... it's too far out, too quiet, not enough to do, no good neighborhoods... it's just dull... you know, for OLD PEOPLE. Well, you got it all wrong! I am here to straighten things out. Mint Hill just happens to have great neighborhoods, schools, retail, services... and you get more for your dollar here, and quality, than just about any other burb I work in.

First, let's let the The Mint Hill Historical Society get the ball rolling... they tell a good story about the area. Obvious, Mint Hill is a suburb of Charlotte, North Carolina, the largest city in the state. So it shares Charlotte's widely-known mild climate, with four distinct seasons of weather. You are always a short drive from wide, sandy beaches and tree-covered, smoky mountains.

Another great way to get figure out what Mint Hill is all about is to read the local newspaper, The Mint Hill Times.  Classifieds, local stories, coupons, pictures of the locals... small town rag though and through.

Town Hall is the architectural focal point of town... if not the prettiest structure... well, they are going to replace it! It is where town government resides. There is a county library branch, too. The Chamber of Commerce is active in keeping growth and business activity on an even keel for this bedroom community.

As I said before, Mint Hill has some great neighborhood choices for the suburban home buyer... you just get so much for the money! And it truly has great choices at every price point. If you want and exclusive equestrian development with estate-sized lots and community stables, then Cheval is the answer! It is just really getting started and presents a wonderful opportunity for the horse enthusiast. A golf course community with pool and tennis courts more to your liking... then let's tour homes in Olde Sycamore... or at least bring the sticks and play golf while we are there! Speaking of golf, might want to join Pine Lake Country Club when you move here... just some friendly advice from one golfer to the other. Back to neighborhoods... Summerwood, Heathfield, Emerald Lake, Fairington Oaks... I know and recommend them all!

You don't have to send your kids far away to school.. they will be just fine in Mint Hill schools. The public Independence High School is a perennial state football powerhouse! They are famous nationwide after winning 109 games in a row!! Mint Hill Middle School students and facility are committed to starting the fire of lifelong learning. Bain Elementary School is the public descendant of the original Bain Academy, founded in 1889 by John Bain, who donated both the land and the money to build the educational facility. Let's round out our educational discussion with Queens Grant Community School, a charter school with a lottery to get it... but I might consider throwing in your kids names for their sake.

Mint Hill Madness, a summer festival centered around the arts, music and fine variety.

Let's talk food... not I know I have your attention. Definitely visit The Hill Bar & Grill right in the heart of town. Great sandwiches, lots of TV's and a family atmosphere. So let's change gears and head down to Hawthorne's New York Pizza & Bar... I'm afraid you might have this one figured out already. Well, it will not disappoint you. To start the day or finish the night after a good meal at either of the above, try our Dilworth Coffee. Hang out, relax, read the Times... you are in the suburbs...what's the rush? OK, I get it... it's 5 o'clock somewhere, right? Then I suggest you head down to Dunwellz Custom Kitchen & Poor House or maybe Skinnyz. They both have what you need.

Throw on top of all that I have shared a strong since of community and faith, and you have Mint Hill down finally. There are plenty of places to worship in town, like Philadelphia Presbyterian Church founded in 1770 and St. Luke Catholic Church to name just a couple.

Don't forget your local utilities.. electric, natural gas, cable tv, and water!
