Volleyball. Tennis. Playgrounds. A swimming pool with a waterslide. Tree-lined streets. Walking trails. Are we describing a resort? No—this is Weddington Chase, one of the most coveted residential neighborhoods in the south Charlotte suburbs. Located just 2.5 miles south of the Weddington Town Center off Providence Road, this subdivision boasts approximately 3000 sprawling homes in a park-like environment, where residents enjoy low Union County tax rates, excellent schools and easy access to I-485 and the best attractions of Charlotte. Welcome to Weddington Chase.
Weddington’s roots date back to post-Revolutionary War times, with a group of families settling the land in the early 1800s (including the family after whom the town was named). For more than a century after, this area remained a quiet, loose-knit agricultural community until nearby Charlotte’s urban sprawl began pushing nearer and nearer. Desiring to preserve this area’s rural charm, Weddington ultimately made the choice to incorporate as its own town in 1983, ensuring that for generations afterward, this area would continue to be a haven of green space and serenity where residents could continue to embrace quiet country living while enjoying easy access to the best Charlotte has to offer.
