George Stephens developed a plan for a streetcar suburb on his father-in-law’s (John Spring Myers) farm in 1905. The neighborhood was designed by the Harvard-trained landscape architect, John Nolen, and work was underway by 1911.
Myers Park is distinguished for its winding tree-lined streets, large historic homes and architectural variety. Due to its landscaped beauty, it is one of the most-visited parts of Charlotte.
For those short on time, a simple drive through the neighborhood is worthwhile in order to view the large, historic mansions along the main streets.
Winner of the 2003 Preservation Award by Myers Park Homeowners Association for additions to an existing home, the enduring charm and essential character of this exceptional Dutch Colonial compel you to feel at home. This significant piece of Myers Park real estate is neighbor of Edgehill Park, the Duke Mansion, and Little Church on the Lane. Built in 1930, the owners spent two years in research with architect Don Duffy to bring forth the vision of the two story addition completed in 2003. Completed by Craftsman Construction, the addition ties seamlessly into the original home and includes the kitchen, breakfast room, laundry/mud room, den, and master suite on second floor. The layered gardens have long been a focal point for passersby offering whimsy and nature at its finest, along with magical tales of barred owls, and heirloom varieties of Lenten roses. Explore all that 301 Hermitage Road has to offer to you and to the legacy of a true Southern and Charlotte home.
