Classic. Breathtaking. These are some of the words that many say to themselves as they drive through the beautiful boulevards of Myers Park.
Traditionally one of the most exclusive areas of Charlotte, Myers Park offers a wide range of architectural styles. You can find that classic Colonial or quaint English Tudor home and know that you are buying a piece of history, in many cases. Do you need to see this for yourself? Pick a beautiful day and drive down the curving Queens Road West with its arbor of hundred-year-old trees blanketing you from the harsh rays of the sun. You’ll be sold in an instant. Not only can you have these homes worthy of a magazine spread, but you can also have a large tract of land set aside from the street, giving you the real feel of owning an estate.
With its excellent location and close proximity to center city, what makes Myers Park so popular is its small town feel. The Manor, an art house movie theater, the little branch library and grocery store are all within walking distance. Some of the best restaurants in Charlotte are right in the center of Myers Park. Nolen Kitchen, for example, draws its named from John Nolen, the landscape architect who designed the neighborhood.
Myers Park High School is one of the highest-ranking International Baccalaureate schools in the nation and boasts that its graduates retain one of the highest graduation rates from a four-year university in the entire state.
You also have your pick of two of the best hospitals in the area: Presbyterian Hospital or Carolinas Medical Center. What more do you need?
Beautiful homes, excellent schools, and a fabulous location. Give Myers Park a look. You won’t be disappointed. Homes can be had for the mid 300’s for a fixer upper or around $500,000 for a nicely redone little cottage and over several million. Condos start in the low $100,000s for an apartment conversion and go up to over a million.
