Where is Highland Creek?
Comfortably spread to the northeast of downtown Charlotte, and conveniently situated right off of Route 485, you’ll find one of the largest and most popular subdivisions in the entire state of North Carolina: Highland Creek.
Although technically considered part of Charlotte, the Highland Creek residential community is almost a city unto itself spanning Mecklenburg and Cabarrus Counties. Home to over 13,000 residents, this quiet, upscale community enjoys being just 20 minutes from Charlotte’s bustling downtown, and just 20 minutes from the beautiful tranquility of the Lake Norman waterfront. Sporting its own elementary school and no less than 44 separate neighborhoods, it’s easy to see why Highland Creek has become the gold standard for master-planned suburban living. If that not enough, Highland Creek in only 5 minutes from Concord Mills Mall and 10 to 15 minutes from Birkdale village and Huntersville.

Imagine yourself living in Highland Creek
You’ve escaped the downtown traffic and you’re just pulling off the 485 onto Robert Helms Road. You shake your head with a smile because you know many of your coworkers are going to be driving home for another 45 minutes or more, while you’re only 16 minutes into your commute and it’s already nearly finished. After negotiating a couple of traffic circles and driving up Prosperity Church Road, you take a right on Ridge and glance to your left to see the telltale sign that you’re nearly home: a low brick wall that cordons off the “crown jewel” of Charlotte, the Highland Creek subdivision.
Tree-lined streets, children running and playing in a dozen small parks, dogs yapping happily from front porches… your slow meandering through your community is like a massage for the heart. Each home and yard is a unique tapestry woven by love and community. And then you see your own: a midsize brick Tudor, just right for your family. As you pull in, the front door opens, and you can almost smell the turkey baking before you even stop the car.
