Looking for a South Charlotte basement home?  Ballantyne Country Club has some homes with spectacular full basements that are finished as nicely as the above-grade portion of the home!  These homes are highly sought-after, so they tend to sell relatively quickly!  Many homes in BCC have gorgeous outdoor living spaces with resort-style pools, outdoor kitchens, spas, water features, decks and porches.

Ballantyne Country Club homes for sale range in price from $500,000 to $3 million and beyond!    Most homes have at least 4 bedrooms, and many have six or more!  You’ll find fine finishes on the interior – exactly what you would expect of a luxury country club community.   HOA fees for the neighborhood are $570, semi-annually.  These HOA fees do NOT cover membership/dues for the country club – those fees are separate!
