Cheval Equestrian Community Sales and Information Center Now Open

Mint Hill, NC, June 17, 2008 --( The Cheval Sales and Information Center is now open to the public in Mint Hill showcasing Charlotte’s newest Tuscan-inspired equestrian community. The center is open seven days a week, Monday through Friday from 11am to 6pm; Saturday from 10am to 6pm and Sunday from 1pm to 6pm.

Located off of Lawyers Road, Cheval is a 300-acre equestrian community with 160 homesites located inside Interstate 485. This distinctive community features custom-built homes on one to five plus acre homesites and offers 15 large estate sites the option of having a private barn on their grounds. Homesites are from the $150’s with homes ranging from the $850’s to $2.5 Million.

The community itself is a lush, natural setting that radiates countryside manor. Upon entering the grounds, you notice the historic silos and immediately, the graceful tone is set. There are riding trails and walking paths for outdoor enjoyment with family, friends and neighbors. But perhaps the finest features of Cheval are the four community parks, naturally placed through its landscape.

There is Cheval Park that is adjacent to the Sales and Information Center immediately upon entering the community, complete with a stone fire pit for gathering. Creekside and Wildflower Pond Parks are sanctuaries located on the trail routes in the heart of the community, followed-up by Trail Head Park at the riding and walking trail terminus.

Horse enthusiasts will enjoy the privately owned Joli Cheval Equestrian Center, conveniently located within the community providing boarding and training services to horse owners. However, even those families who just love nature or want a home with acreage will enjoy the natural, country inspired lifestyle that Cheval offers.

Cheval is the brainchild of Keith Paris. Paris searched for two years before locating the area in Mint Hill that would be a perfect blend of nature and convenience for the development. "I’m excited to have the Sales and Information Center open so that families can feel our passion for Cheval and recognize that it’s a premier community for their next home in the Charlotte area.

Cheval ensures the convenience of the city, with Ballantyne, SouthPark, the University area and Uptown Charlotte close by, yet the ability to live in a country setting near other families that share in their same interests,” says Paris.
