Antiquity in Cornelius


Antiquity in Cornelius - Bridge

Antiquity, located in Cornelius, NC is currently one of my favorite new construction communities. The neighborhood is designed to promote a sense of community with uninterrupted sidewalks, multiple parks throughout, and a town center shopping area that will begin construction this year. The community has 9 planned play parks, called a “close,” each approximately a quarter-acre. An evergreen has been planted in each close with hopes that residents will gather to decorate them during the holiday season. In Checkers Square, a large-scale checkerboard will be tucked under Princeton elm trees where family and friends can gather for a friendly game.

With five different builders, including Meeting Street Homes, Antiquity will include more than 1,000 residences built with all ages and stages in mind, from couples and growing families to empty-nesters and young professionals.

Antiquity is designed as a “smart-growth” community, one which enhances and strengthens the natural and cultural resources of Cornelius and surrounding areas. Among the plans for Antiquity is the town center, which will include shopping, dining and other enterprises, a community pool for the residents of Antiquity, and a 30-acre park that will surround the village. The park will include an arboretum, athletic fields, a hike and bike trail that will connect with the trail system in Davidson, and a 2,500 seat outdoor amphitheater for various summer performances. Designed as much more than just a place to live, Antiquity is the epitome of an at-ease, friendly neighborhood.

On the Southwest side, Antiquity is within walking distance of Old Town Cornelius, which has great shopping venues like Ashley Carol, Avalilly’s, Oak Street Mill Antiques, The Dry Sink and many others. Old Town also hosted a great Halloween family event in 2013 which they are hoping to turn into an annual occurrence.

Just through the covered bridge on the Northern edge of the neighborhood lies the town of Davidson. This pedestrian and bicycle-friendly community is home to Davidson College, a highly selective independent liberal arts college. The college sponsors many arts events, including music, dance, theater and art, as well as rotating exhibits in the Belk Visual Arts Center. In addition, Davidson College has many NCAA Division I teams, making collegiate sporting events easily accessible. The town of Davidson also has a wonderful, producer-only farmer’s market as well as restaurants like Fuel Pizza, Restaurant X, Campania Cafe and more.

If you’d like a chance to further explore new construction opportunities in this fantastic neighborhood, please contact us. We’d love to show you around!
