The Amity Gardens Neighborhood December Yard of the Month is 5120 Unaka Avenue!!
“Hi Amity Gardens!
My name is Craige, I’m 30 and I live on Unaka with my younger brother Scott (we’re the house with all the Jeeps in the driveway for anyone wondering 😊). We both greatly appreciate being recognized for yard of the month, what an honor!
We actually have a little history in this neighborhood….
Our grandparents built this house in 1956 after getting married and raised my mom here. I grew up down the street at 4926 Unaka until my parents moved out to Weddington in 2002 when all the Independence construction started. I can remember as a kid sitting on the hill by Haverty’s (where the Walmart parking lot is now) to watch the fireworks for the 4th of July. It really was a prime seat without even having to drive anywhere! I convinced my mother to keep our grandparents house after they passed and rent it instead of selling it. Fast forward 15 years later and I was able to move back into the neighborhood. We’ve been here for 2 years and love it!
Thanks again for recognizing us for yard of the month! Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!!
PS: We love the new sign!”
