Active Adult and 55+ Communities in Charlotte and Surrounding Areas
There are currently around 45 Active Adult 55+ neighborhoods in the Charlotte, North Carolina area with builders such as Del Webb, Epcon, Shea, and Kolter. Many of these are age restricted and the others are geared towards 55+ but not actually deeded as such. Factors in your decision will likely include the general location you want to be in, the types and abundance of amenities you're looking for, price range, etc. If you'd like to browse for 55+ Homes for Sale in Charlotte, simply look below and enjoy the search.

Most of the communities in the Charlotte region will at least have a pool and small clubhouse and maybe that's all you need but if you're looking for MORE, there are a few communities you should consider. Namely, Sun City Carolina Lakes (Indian Land, SC), Trilogy Lake Norman (Denver), Bailey's Glen (Cornelius), Treetops (Lancaster, SC), Carolina Orchards (Fort Mill, SC), Cresswind (East Charlotte) and Regency at the Palisades (southwest Charlotte). With these, you're more likely to find multiple clubs to join, tennis, pool, pickleball, bocce ball, an onsite restaurant or bar perhaps, cycling and walking trails, etc.

Alternatives to an Active Adult Community
For some of you, being in an active adult community may end up putting you just a little outside of your price range. Truth is, HOA dues are typically higher in these communities because of extra common areas to take care of, full yard care that they provide for the homeowner, amenities, etc. If you find that the prices in the Charlotte 55+ communities are a little more than you can handle, a ranch style or master down plan in a non-55+ neighborhood (but still with amenities) might be the best bet. If this sounds like you, feel free to view some ranch or master down plans now.
