Birkdale Village is a true destination for so many different people in the Lake Norman area. For someone like me who every-once-in-a-while wants to get a California “fix”, I go because of its upscale shopping, restaurants, theater and overall ambiance. But, it also attracts myriad young families with strollers and business people coming to network at the Starbucks or one of the great restaurants Even our local NASCAR drivers frequent the restaurants. Unlike anywhere else in Lake Norman or even Charlotte, Birkdale Village truly offers the best of the urban village concept!
A 52-acre mixed-use development, Birkdale was patterned after the wonderful feel of New England seacoast towns.
It is a place to go just to sit at Starbucks and relax, meet with friends, watch a movie, enjoy some great food or do some serious shopping.
One of the big attractions for moms and little ones is their beautiful fountain made for playing in and running through….a great way to cool down on a warm summer day!
The upscale Red Rock Cafe, Bar and Bakeryis a favorite hangout of NASCAR drivers but there are other great eateries like Brixx Pizza, Cafe Mia, Dresslers, eeZ Fusion Sushi, Fox and Hound BoneFish Grill and more!
There are 47 stores from Barnes & Noble Bookstore to LuLu Lemon, Ann Taylor Loft, Williams Sonoma, Total Wine, Chico’s, Gap and Gap Kids, Banana Republic, American Eagle, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Pier 1 Imports, Victoria’s Secret and some awesome children’s stores. And, there is a 16-screen movie theater.
But, it is also a place to live! There are 320 1 to 3-bedroom luxury apartment homes located for the most part above the shops on Main Street. Community amenities include a luxurious clubhouse with fitness and business center, pool with grill area and private parking.
There is a wonderful adjacent community of single-family homes, also called Birkdale Village, where there are currently 65 active listings ranging in price from $219,000 to $659,900.
Imagine living in such a charming village and being able to walk to just about everything…especially in this time of high gasoline costs. There is nothing else like it in Lake Norman!
