Myers Park is considered one of the premier and affluent communities in Charlotte. There are condominium options that make for great starter or downsizer living opportunities. Prices for single-family homes start at the mid $300s to 3+ million.
The neighborhood began when John Springs Myers had the idea to develop part of his large farm to form a stately neighborhood. His plan was to utilize the naturally occurring curves, winding creeks and rolling elevations to create a private reprieve from the city. This vision is what formed the neighborhood in a loop rather than the more traditional “grid-style” layout.
Given the plethora of extravagant homes, paired with attractive tree-lined streets and creeks, Myers Park is perfect for wildlife viewing, daily strolls, and biking. With close to 10,000 residents, it also provides a source of entertainment for out of town guests who are interested in scenic historic tours. A few local landmarks include the Theatre Charlotte (Charlotte’s oldest arts organization and the state’s longest running community theatre), Manor Theatre (one of Charlotte’s oldest movie theaters), Edgehill Park, and Queen’s University.
Located southeast of Uptown Charlotte, Eastover was the first suburb with driveways for “motorcars.” The neighborhood’s stately homes have long attracted the leaders who helped shape Charlotte’s growth, including banker, Hugh McColl Jr. and department store icon, John Belk and the E. C. Griffith family, who developed most of the Eastover community. One of the major landmarks is The Mint Museum of Art. Eastover is also home to Eastover Academy, one of Charlotte’s oldest and most popular Elementary Schools.
The Eastover community is considered one of the finest historic neighborhoods in the Charlotte metro area. Parks, public tennis courts and quaint, local shops and restaurants are all within walking distance of some of Charlotte’s most stately homes. Eastover also features lovely shops and boutiques.
