This is a pet FREE and non-smoking unit. No exceptions.

The unit features a Queen bed, sofa (for a third person, it is not a pull out but is comfortable for sleeping, if you need extra sheets, please let me know). we also have a full size mattress in the closet, full kitchen with travertine tile back splash, dishwasher, Keurig single serve coffee pot, washer and dryer, microwave, toaster oven, full bathroom with tile bath tub surround, heat and air, flat screen TV, Cable TV, Netflix, HBOGO, and Pandora radio.

Restaurant and night life options range from casual to fine dining and include everything from old fashioned diners to local bakeries, vegan and ethnic options as well as plenty of night life and live music. Also within walking distance are galleries, a great used book shop, a beer and wine store, and antique and consignment shops.

Located less than two miles from uptown and along three of the city's most heavily used bus routes, leading to the center city, access to activities in the center city could not be easier. The bus stand is one block and any bus that passes (every 5-15 minutes at most times of the day), takes you to the transit center of in the heart of uptown. The center city is a five minute drive. You can park one car in the driveway right in front of the unit.

Loved our stay at John's place in midwood plaza. Check in was a breeze, and the apartment felt like a home away from home. We picked out a place for dinner and breakfast from a suggestion list John had provided, and loved both places. Walking distance to a lot of unique downtown venues. Will definitely stay again!

Hello for the last 30 years I have lived in Charlotte and know the city and city life inside and out. I have my own real estate company which focuses on investment property but I also act as a buyers/seller agent.

I fully expect to remain in Charlotte and live in this house for many more years. The location of my house is fantastic and Charlotte is a great city !!
