Myers Park

There is no better introduction to Charlotte NC than a stroll through the historic Myers Park area, accessed via Queens Road or Providence Rd.

Myers Park features some of the city’s most opulent homes, framed by a canopy of massive willow oak trees, with master planned rolling streets, wide sidewalks and pocket parks throughout.

The Myers Park neighborhood in Charlotte NC emerged from John Spring Myers original cotton farm in 1911.  John Myers carved off a portion of his farm to create the Cherry neighborhood, and used the existing winding paths to create a natural ‘green’ landscape. The result was what many think is now Charlotte’s most beautiful community.  Most of the historic homes in Myers Park reflect the Classic style from traditional brick Georgians to English Tudor, built on huge lots.

In more recent years and as available land has become more scarce, Myer’s Park introduced upscale condominium buildings along the Myers Park Queens Road-Selwyn Avenue corridor, making it a ‘community center’ of sorts, within Myers Park. Many of the older homes in the area have been renovated and are simply spectacular example of real estate.

Myers Park Charlotte NC is within walking distance to Freedom Park, the Little Sugar Greenway runs along the western boundary, historic Queens University, fine dining, upscale shopping and is only about 3 miles from Uptown Charlotte NC.

Homes in Myers Park Charlotte NC typically range in the $1 million plus range and sales of old homes are very rare and sought after.  Very few new homes can be built in this area, but given it’s history and proximity to Uptown, a Myers Park address remains one of the most sought-after in the city.
