Proximity to good schools, top business, and endless entertainment, along with state-of-the-art amenities are just a few reasons why more and more people are choosing to call it home. Welcome to Bridgehampton.

Most people have a preference as to which of the Carolinas they prefer, but residents of Bridgehampton really do not have to choose. The homes on the North Carolina side tend to be closer to shopping, dining, and other services, while the taxes are a little lower on the South Carolina side. Both school systems have excellent reputations. Aside from that, which side you choose is entirely up to your personal preference and what is available in this sprawling community where neighbors become lifelong friends.

Bridgehampton is a social neighborhood. From kids’ holiday parties to functions for adults, there is always a way to get out there and get to know the people who live around you. If you prefer a casual meeting, you are sure to bump into several neighborhoods when you head to the pool on a warm Carolina summer day or go for a walk down the sidewalk-lined streets.

Beyond the people, you will find an assortment of grand and traditional homes in Bridgehampton. There is truly something to fit all tastes and budgets. Best of all, everything you could ever need is just a quick car ride away. To the west you will find a bit of peaceful countryside. To the east is the busy Ballantyne community, which has its own corporate park and entertainment facilities. Beyond those areas are some of Charlotte’s most sought-after attractions and business opportunities.

History

The homes in Bridgehampton were built between 2000 and 2004, but the land in the Charlotte area has a much more storied past. Rivers, fertile land, and Native American trading paths attracted European settlers to the area during the mid-18th century, and they incorporated the city in 1768. The settlers named it for Queen Charlotte of England, the wife of King George III. After a short-lived gold rush that began in 1799, Charlotte remained an agricultural city until after the Civil War.

The late 19th century saw the railroads moving into town. Combine the new transportation and access to other cities with the cotton farming and manufacturing that was taking place, and Charlotte soon became one of the biggest producers of textiles in the nation. It was not until the 1970s and 1980s that the city became the banking and finance hub that it is today. One of fastest-growing cities in the nation, Charlotte is currently the second-largest financial center in the United States.
