The Reserve--Neighborhood Information and Homes for Sale

Discover The Reserve, a Charlotte neighborhood with a champion tree.

There aren’t many neighborhoods that can boast of owning a North Carolina Champion Tree. One Charlotte neighborhood does have the bragging rights to a big tree. That neighborhood is The Reserve, a community located on the south side of Charlotte in unincorporated Union County NC.

Drive along the landscaped parkway at the entrance to The Reserve and you will be amazed to see a huge willow oak ahead of you. The tree has been preserved in the center of the common area adjacent to the community clubhouse and pool. It’s the largest willow oak in North Carolina at 85 feet tall and 25 feet in circumference.

The Reserve was built in several distinct villages from 2003 to 2006. Most of the neighborhood has large lots of approximately .4-.5 acre. Two sections have smaller homes and smaller lots of a quarter to a third of an acre. Most homes have brick fronts with vinyl sides although full brick homes can be found in the community. The smallest homes in The Reserve are approximately 2000 square feet in size but they can be as large as 4000 square feet or more.
