Each of the Ballantyne communities offers its own interpretation of the ideal active lifestyle. Some of the better known neighborhoods are: Ballantyne Country Club, Ballantyne Meadows, Bexley, Kensington, The Vineyard, Cobblestone and Thornhill.
Ballantyne Country Club provides a luxurious lifestyle, where there is always something fun to do nearby. Amenities include a modern golf course and clubhouse, tennis courts, swimming pools and an active social scene. There is a Families Activities Center, where dad can relax by the pool, mom can take a kickboxing class, teens can join the swim team and the youngest family members can wade in the tot pool. As well, the tennis center features lighted clay and hard-surface courts, spectator seating and a pro shop. Residents also have access to a workout gym that is stocked with stair climbers, elliptical trainers and treadmills.
The Ballantyne Meadows community is located south of Interstate 485 and west of Ballantyne Resort. Here, prospective buyers will find a charming village of cottage homes in the craftsman style. Home styles vary, but most have two stories and fenced yards.
Homes in the Bexley at Ballantyne subdivision are generally more expansive than those found in Ballantyne Meadows. Additionally, these homes are often situated on big lots, which allow for long driveways and some privacy from the road. This neighborhood is also characterized by clean landscaping and impressive exterior brick facades.
Kensington is one of Ballantyne's more exclusive neighborhoods. The layout of the community was designed to incorporate many cul-de-sacs and to preserve as much of the wooded landscape as possible. On the inside of Kensington's homes, home seekers are presented with many custom features, including high-end flooring, countertops, cabinetry and moldings.
Thornhill, like Kensington, is also located in a forested area. The Thornhill lifestyle revolves around the community's extensive swimming and tennis facilities. Additional amenities are a lake (with an island!) and the 14-acre county nature park.
The Vineyard and Cobblestone are both family-oriented communities featuring large, brick homes with yards and lots of trees. Residents of these neighborhoods enjoy being close to the YMCA Water Park, a massive indoor facility that is a very popular with the locals.
