Myers Park – Charlotte NC Neighborhood – History and Luxury at Your Fingertips

Myers Park is one of Charlotte’s finest planned suburbs, making it one of Charlotte’s premier neighborhoods.  

A Little Myers Park History

Once a 1,200-acre farm originally owned by John Spring Myers, Myers park was developed in 1905 by Myers' son-in-law, George Stephens.  Myers Park was designed in 1905 by John Nolen, a Harvard grad who later became a very well known landscape architect.

The original plan for George Stephens, was to form a streetcar community, where all residents could walk to the streetcar.  The early plan did not anticipate the development of the automobile - especially to the extent in which it is used today. As a result, there have been many changes in the neighborhood as Charlotte has grown so vastly and traffic became a major growth factor.

There's no better present day introduction to Charlotte for our relocation clients than a drive down Queens Road – those 100-year old pin oaks truly envelope you - the magnificence and grandeur of the historic homes are simply breathtaking.

It's difficult to believe now, but, when Nolen transformed Myers' farm, it was nearly treeless.  He developed it into a showcase of sophisticated suburban beauty which has become Charlotte's elegant centerpiece.  No one would believe that this nearly treeless farm has been transformed into stately architecture, accentuated by mammoth century-old oaks.

The homes in Myers Park are handsome and imposing. The first homes in Myers Park were on Queens Road (the main thoroughfare), named for the College (Queens College, now Queens University), or Hermitage Road, which led from Queens Road. One of the older residences in Myers Park is an historic landmark - the Duke Mansion. In 1919, James B. Duke bought and greatly expanded a Colonial Revival style mansion that Z. V Taylor, had built four years earlier.

In recent years upscale condominium buildings have been erected along the Myers Park Queens Road-Selwyn Avenue corridor and many of the older homes have been revitalized and are even more spectacular than they were originally.   Myers Park is walkable to Freedom Park (which has some of the best lit public tennis courts in the area), Queens University, fine dining, upscale shopping and is only about 3 miles from Uptown Charlotte NC.

Well, it CAN be done for that in Myers Park but, it wouldn't be on one of the 'main' streets in Myers Park!!  So, let's talk about that move - I know a great guy in LA who I would highly recommend for listing your home, Endre Barath, Jr.!  Seriously, how awesome would that be to have you join us here in Charlotte?!

Oh, man, I am madly in love with that cover home. Now, that's style. I particular love the stone work and the grand staircase entrance. Tell me how much this home is worth so I can put it out of my mind because I imagine it is valued at millions.

Oh, Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents, our tastes are very similar!  This one is a beauty!  The owners bought the home in 2002 ($1.6M) and completely renovated it - it is now worth over $4.5M and it is spectacular!
