This large (1,000 sq. ft.) ground floor 1br/1ba furnished apartment retains its original charm, with high ceilings, large double-hung windows and hardwood floors. Due to the large size, it's ideal for a couple to share for long stays, and can sleep 4 for shorter stays when using the comfortable queen sofabed.
There is an abundance of storage, especially for a building of this era. The radiator heat and window a/c units have been replaced with central heating and cooling. The kitchen has space for quick meals, and the large dining room is ideal for dinner parties or family get-togethers.
There are 2 flat-screen televisions, one in the living room and the other in the bedroom, and a small stereo system with ipod connections. A washer and dryer are within the unit, as is a dishwasher.
The front porch is great when the weather is nice, as there are many joggers, dog walkers and bicyclists out and about in the neighborhood.
Independence Park, just a couple of blocks away, is a neighborhood treasure, with a rose garden, reflecting pool, tree-lined paths and tennis courts.
The area has a young and vibrant feeling, with the residents proud of their neighborhood.
Within a half mile are more than a dozen restaurants, many pubs, an independent video rental store, and several vintage clothing and furniture shops.
We purchased this building due to its prime location in the Elizabeth neighborhood, close to Plaza Midwood. We were drawn to the craftsman architecture of the building, with its deep eaves and cedar shake siding on the back. The fact that is in the heart of the neighborhood, near the park, and with wide sidewalks, large oak trees also attracted us. It's hard to be as centrally located as Elizabeth.
Location, location, location, in Charlotte's second-oldest streetcar suburb, started in 1891.
We are considering moving to Charlotte, and this was an ideal place to get a feel for the city. Jim and James were extremely helpful providing input into the various neighborhoods, restaurant suggestions, etc.
The apartment was very clean, convenient and in a cool neighborhood. We walked to breakfast (Zada Jane's), lunch (Hawthorne's Pizza) and dinner (Soul), as well as drinks after dinner. It was very centrally located, so it was perfect for seeing neighborhoods further out.
Thanks guys for giving us great insight into what Charlotte has to offer! Highly recommended!
Right when we first walked into the unit, soft music was playing and it was nice and warm (aparently I brought the cold weather from Boston). It was a nice touch and we felt very welcome! The apartment was extreemly clean, and there were lovely treats for us to eat and drink so we didn't have to go to the store right away. The location was great, easy to get around. I would stay here again!
Our Hawthorne Lane furnished apartments are located in the historic Elizabeth neighborhood, one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city, begun in 1891. Despite the age of the neighborhood, the area has a young and vibrant feeling, with lots of activities for the young and young-at-heart. Independence Park, with tree-lined paths, a rose garden, reflecting pond and tennis courts, is an intimate neighborhood park, built in 1905, just a couple of blocks away. Craftsman bungalows line the neighboring streets, and there are many restaurants within a 1/2 mile walk, along wide sidewalks through tree-canopied streets, including some of the best and most popular establishments in town, including Soul Gastro lounge. An independent video rental shop around the corner offers an enormous selection of movies, and several vegetarian restaurants are nearby as well.
