Nestled in the Marvin Creek Community just off the intersection of Rea Road and Tom Short Road lies the small, new subdivision of Tullamore—a planned community of just over 40 homes and homesites developed by Pulte Homes. Here, residents will enjoy sprawling floorplans set on large lots in a wooded, park-like setting with walking trails and a community park, zoned within Union County Schools and just minutes from some of the best shopping, dining and entertainment choices in the southern Charlotte suburbs. Welcome to Tullamore.
Tulamore is a new development in a newly incorporated community (the Village of Marvin was established in 2005), but the history of this area runs much deeper, back to colonial times when the first settlers began farming this land in the mid-1700s. Mainly a rural agricultural community for many years (cotton being the primary crop), the textile industry came to the fore when the railroad arrived in nearby Waxhaw in the late 1800s. These days, of course, the urban sprawl of nearby Charlotte is knocking on the door of this otherwise quiet part of the country—but Marvin and Waxhaw continue to preserve their small-town charm today, and with subdivisions like Tullamore being built to respect the beautiful country setting of this area, it’s little wonder that the Marvin-Waxhaw area continues to be one of the most coveted areas of suburban Charlotte.
