Spotlight: Belmont’s Adams Bluff

Just 3 blocks from the quaint center of town, Adams Bluff is south of Wilkinson Boulevard between Park and Catawba streets.

Moving to Belmont does not mean giving up conveniences, however. Downtown Belmont is bustling with restaurants, shops and Belmont’s own Rivermen Brewing Co., which will be within walking distance when it moves to its new downtown location on Ervin Street.

For commuters, downtown Charlotte is just 10 miles away, and the airport is only 6 miles. For recreation, the U.S. National Whitewater Center is a quick 6 miles down the road, as is the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden.

Homes in Adams Bluff range in size from about 1,000 square feet to 2,000 square feet. Despite being so close to downtown, the neighborhood is surrounded by wooded areas and has 4 walking trails throughout.

An average of 1 home has sold per month in Adams Bluff over the last 12 months. Currently, there are 3 homes listed on the market, all of which are under contract.
