Our Hawthorne building, home to 4 1br furnished apartments, is located in the Elizabeth neighborhood, the city’s second-oldest “streetcar suburb”, dating from 1891. With its central location adjacent to Uptown, the area is convenient to all of Charlotte, no matter what direction.
Many of the older bungalows have been tastefully enlarged to accommodate modern families, and there are still a multitude of the original landmark homes in the neighborhood with character completely intact. The neighborhood has a youthful, energetic and vibrant feeling.
In addition to the incredibly beautiful residential streets, there are thriving commercial areas with some of the city’s finest restaurants, as well as neighborhood favorites. Of particular interest to movie fanatics, Visart video is an independent video store with an enormous catalog of almost every movie you can imagine. Jazz is on tap several nights a week at the long-standing Cajun Queen restaurant. The Plaza-Midwood commercial district is just a half mile away, with many restaurants, bars, shops and galleries to fill up a full day and night.
The neighborhood hosts an annual Easter egg hunt, progressive dinner and a Home and Garden tour.
Independence Park, just 2 blocks from our Hawthorne building, is the oldest public park in the city, and one of its most gracious, with a reflecting pool and rose garden, tree-lined paths, tennis courts and playing fields.
You’ll enjoy a true taste of city life in this active neighborhood where there’s always something interesting going on, from vegan beer dinners at Fern to the neighborhood’s annual 8k road race.
