Nestled in the southern suburbs of Charlotte a couple of miles north of downtown Waxhaw, the planned neighborhood of Cureton offers moderately priced homes in a park-like and resort-like setting. While providing easy access to many Charlotte destination via I-485, this welcoming community also offers many benefits close to home, including a community clubhouse and pool, fitness center and walking trails, all within walking distance of the shops and restaurants of nearby Cureton Town Center. With all this comfort and convenience, it’s little wonder that Cureton is one of the most popular suburban neighborhoods among Charlotte homebuyers. Welcome to Cureton.


Developed around 2008, Cureton is a planned mixed-use community, with single family homes and townhomes built adjacent to the retail space of Cureton Town Center. The nearby community of Waxhaw, however, hails back to the mid-1700s when colonists first settled the area (Andrew Jackson was reportedly born in this area.) For many years, this was a loose-knit agricultural community, but when the railroad came through in the late 1800s, textile mills began to emerge locally to process and ship the cotton grown on nearby farms. Today, Waxhaw is known as a hub for antiquing and dining, and its Main Street area is a historic district listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
