Shannamara--Neighborhood Information and Homes for Sale

Discover Shannamara, a Charlotte Golf Course Community

Picture expansive golf course views. Children playing in a splash pad pool. Beautiful custom homes in wooded settings. This is Shannamara.

Shannamara is a golf course community located along I-485 in the small town of Stallings NC. Most of Shannamara’s approximately 700 homes are in Union County but some are located in Mecklenburg County. The neighborhood’s convenient location allows easy access to uptown Charlotte, the amenities and shopping of South Charlotte, the University area, and the community festivals and quaint shops of historic downtown Matthews.

The Divide Golf Course winds through the neighborhood with many opportunities for home owners to live on the golf course or to enjoy a golf course view. The Divide is a daily fee course so Shannamara residents may enjoy the golf course views without paying membership dues. Other neighborhood amenities include a newly expanded and renovated clubhouse, a swimming pool with water slide, a wading pool, a playground and tennis courts. The Shannamara Homeowners Association sponsors a number of activities for residents, including holiday parties for children and adult socials, a Vintage 50+ group for seniors, and golf and tennis teams.

Shannamara homes were built by custom and semi-custom builders from the mid-1990s until about 2005. You can find full-brick or brick-front homes. Interiors are upgraded with chef’s kitchens, extensive millwork, wood and tile flooring and luxury bathrooms. The neighborhood is a great place to find ranch homes as many of the lots are wide enough to accommodate one-level living. Waterfront homes can be found around the privately-owned Shannamara Lake in the center of the neighborhood. Many of the lots are wooded.
