Living in Cambridge Estates affords residents a unique opportunity to enjoy a beautiful, peaceful community with stately homes and lovely lots that is located in arguably the most convenient and commuter-friendly area of Gastonia. Traveling to Charlotte is a breeze, as I-85 can be accessed at Exit 22 in a matter of minutes.
Local avenues for shopping and dining are plentiful; Franklin Square is nearby to the west along with many restarants lining Franklin Boulevard, including Schlotzky’s Deli, Applebee’s, Zaxby’s and Chili’s. A Food Lion shopping center in Cramerton can be found by a taking pleasant trip down Gaston Rd.(where one might even see a few cows!) to the east. A Bi-Lo and a Lowe’s Foods can be found by taking a short trip south of the subdivision.
The homes, many of which were built by local builder Steve Early, range from ranches to 1.5 stories to 2-stories, all within the 2,000 square foot range. Some are full brick and others feature a partial brick veneer, and quality details such as dentil molding accents are prevalent. Architectural styles range from the very traditional to the more contemporary.
Cambridge Estates is a family subdivision; the local public schools are Lowell Elementary, Holbrook Middle School, and Ashbrook High School. Also, Gaston Christian School is less than a mile away, on Lowell-Bethesda Road. Families will find this subdivision extremely livable–in addition to saving gas money by not having to travel far for the necessities of life, HOA dues in Cambridge Estates are just $60 per year.
A creek runs behind the subdivision, allowing residents the benefits of having access to it and enjoying the sound of the running water through the trees. It adds to the illusion that you are experiencing a more rural environment, while the heart of Gastonia and the gateway to all that Charlotte offers is right outside your back door!

Mortgages depend significantly on the value of the property that is involved. Consequently, it become important to know how much a property is worth before heading into refinancing plans, looking for a home loan, or selling a house.
One way to do this is to determine the market value of the property. A simple way to do this is to look at other comparable homes in the same neighborhood and see what prices they have been sold recently. One of your Carolina Living Realtors can assist you with this and will come at no cost to you.
Another way to find the value of your property is to find its appraised value. To do this you need to pay for the help of a trained and licensed professional. They will take into account a variety of factors, including the home’s square footage, construction quality, floor plan, design, surrounding neighborhood, proximity to important services and locations, as well as the landscaping, among other factors. An appraiser will usually cost anywhere between $200 and $300. In the current Lake Norman real estate environment, appraisals have become pivitol in the actual sale of the property. Short sales and foreclosures in the Lake Norman area have caused some of our appraisal values to decrease causing transactions to fail to close.
An appraiser can also tell you the replacement value of the property. This is how much an appraiser estimates it will cost to build a similar house on an unoccupied lot. The appraiser will take the age of the home into account to make a better estimate with deterioration and depreciation in mind.
One important thing to note is that a home’s estimated value is not the same as its worth. A home’s estimated value is defined by one of the methods listed above, while its worth is eventually established by what potential buyers are willing to pay for it.
Some things we have experienced in the Charlote and surrounding areas.
- Tax value does NOT determine value of the home. It has nothing to do with market value.
- Neighbors do not know the value of a home. Of course they are wanting values of homes to be very high.
- Current list prices of homes, while helpful, do not determine the value of a home.
