Weddington homes have offered Charlotte residents an alternative to city life for many years even though the town was not incorporated until 1983. Weddington was incorporated to maintain its rural atmosphere…and to avoid probable annexation by Charlotte. That desire for the rural lifestyle was reinforced by requiring all Weddington home sites to be at least one acre in size.
In time the factors of close proximity to Charlotte and large lots… plus great schools and beautiful country side resulted in valuable property and expensive homes.
Weddington still has a rural flavor as one travels the country roads between subdivisions; however the Weddington homes within the subdivisions are anything but rural. The town boosts a collection of some of the region’s finest houses and communities…most built since 1990. Moreover, Weddington is said to have the highest per capital income in North Carolina. The prices for Weddington houses start about $500,000 and go to several million dollars.
Weddington Real Estate
Weddington real estate is almost all residential… only 27 acres of the towns total acreage of 11,044 is zoned commercial. And it is all located at the intersection of NC 16 and NC 84 – aptly called Town Center. Town Center consists of a few retail shops and medical & office buildings…plus Weddington Town Hall located in the historic Thomas Wrenn house, circa 1894. No other Weddington real estate gives a hint of being in a town.
NC 16 is the main artery for most of the traffic from Charlotte south to Waxhaw and beyond. NC 84 or Weddington Road is the major east-west road connecting a great deal of Weddington real estate. It continues through Wesley Chapel to Monroe, the Union County seat.
Weddington has almost 16 square miles of land and approximately 11,000 people for a very low population density. In traversing the town’s roads or studying a map, it is clear that the 1983 vision of the local leaders is being realized. There is a much vacant Weddington real estate that is likely to stay that way for a long time…if not forever.
