If you start listing all the pluses that come with living in the Wilmore neighborhood in Charlotte you will probably run out of breath before you are finished. Savvy + Co. Real Estate agent Mike Feehley has been a Wilmore homeowner since 2005 and one of its top agents. While he doesn’t like to toot his own horn, he was ready with pages and pages of reasons why he loves this neighborhood (and you will too).
It’s close to….everything
When I say Wilmore is close to everything, I mean EVERYTHING. (Deep breath in.) If you work in Uptown you are close – as in walking distance – to several Lynx stops. Into sports? Start the Panther pregame at your house – or Mike’s – then walk to the game. If breweries make your heart flutter, Wilmore is bikeable, walkable (and definitely Uber/Lyft-able) to Wooden Robot, Triple C, Lenny Boy, Sugar Creek and the list goes on. Food enthusiasts will rejoice with choices like Price’s Chicken Coop, 300 East, Futo Buta, Rai Lay, Crispy Crepe, Tupelo Honey Café, Nikko’s, Thai Taste, Copper, Seoul Food Meat Co. and more. Whew….that was a long list. Deep breath out.
