Starmount is a residential neighborhood in the South Charlotte (South Boulevard at Arrowood and Archdale) area.

Starmount was constructed during the early 1960s by Ervin Construction Company. Phase One of construction took place primarily from Starbrook Drive south to Sherbourne, then spread north towards Archdale Drive at Phase Two.

Starmount homes were built using true pine 2 x 4s, hardwood floors and brick construction. A great portion of the neighborhood is made up of 1,200-1,500 sq. ft. ranch style houses, but there are also many split-level, two-story, and basement homes of 2,400 sq ft (220 m2) and larger.

Consisting of nearly 1,400 homes, Starmount is the largest established neighborhood in South Charlotte. Starmount runs east from South Boulevard, north to Emerywood, east to Montpelier & Edgewater, then along Little Sugar Creek south to Sherbourne.
