Take a drive down Johnston Road into the heart of Ballantyne, past I-485 and past the huge monoliths on the 4 corners of Johnston and Ballantyne Commons Parkway. You will pass the Ballantyne Hotel and Spa and Ballantyne Village - continue just a little further to the Ballantyne Country Club Neighborhood. This subdivision is actually located on both sides of Johnston Road. The golf club is on the right and the swim and tennis club is on the left.
This neighborhood is lovely, reminiscent of traditional architecture with rolling green yards and peppered with Georgian-style homes with their graceful columns. However, there are all styles of homes in Ballantyne Country Club: French Country, Traditional, Transitional and some of these are huge estate homes with as many as 8 bedrooms and 8 full baths with 13,000 plus square feet!
