“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough” – MAE WEST

Many of us are trying to navigate a fast paced world and enjoy life while doing it. Choosing a home that suits us is a very important step in living a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Charlotte has many wonderful neighborhoods, but perhaps none so exciting and desirable as Myers Park.

History buffs recall how the farmland owned by John Spring Myers was transformed into “Myers Park” with the planting of rows of trees down Providence Road more than a 100 years ago.  The beautiful span of Queens Road West, lined with stately and impressive homes surely will delight even the most discerning homebuyer, and it makes this stretch of road one of the most walked and biked roads in Charlotte. Affectionately known as the “booty loop”, this 2.8 mile circle within the Myers Park boundaries attracts runners, cyclists, and walkers alike and is the inspiration for the “24 Hrs of Booty” already in its 12th year of fundraising for the Levine Cancer Institute. If walking, strolling, hiking or biking is your “thing”, or you just want to be able to take advantage of the outdoors easily, nothing could be better than owning your own home in the middle of Myers Park!

Imagine being located a short distance from Park Road Shopping Center and near to Montford Drive, the area that has quickly become a walkable hotspot! Nearby 10 Park Lanes offers a newly retro-styled atmosphere, league and recreational bowling and a full dine-in menu.  Foodies will not be disappointed with Good Food on Montford, a semi-finalist for the James Beard Best New Restaurant award and voted one of the best places to dine in Charlotte.

Steps from the Little Sugar Creek Greenway and sandwiched between two city-owned tracts never to be built upon, there is a cozy property at 3016 Manor Road. For the family friendly digs, your homes awaits at 2238 Hassell Place.  From either property you are steps away from a slice at Mellow Mushroom or a frozen yogurt at Yoforia. Both of these spectacular locations offer an abundance of choices for your outdoor recreation and daily routines. If you are tight for time and have a long list of errands, you can get them all done within minutes of your new home.

As with any well-planned community, there are anchors in established educational institutions within the neighborhood.  Myers Park is no exception with the highly accredited Queens University located at the intersection of Queens and Queens and the Myers Park Public Library branch across the street. Myers Park High School has a long and great history of academic excellence and athletics, as well as Alexander Graham Middle school and Selwyn Elementary school which serve the immediate area and are walking distance from these properties.

Several well known churches are located within the neighborhood and add to the beautiful architecture of our community. Connected by the Greenway, our very own Freedom Park provides a centralized location for Festivals and recreation outdoors, with tennis courts, volleyball, soccer, baseball, playgrounds, picnics and a sunday stroll.  Adjacent to Freedom park is the Charlotte Nature Museum featuring local fauna and wildlife, with kid-friendly presentations and educational programs.

If having a healthy and happy lifestyle are part of your criteria when searching for a home in Charlotte,  it is wonderful when Myers Park is part of the conversation.
