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.
One of Charlotte's remaining historical treasures, the McManaway house is a must see. Built in 1874 at 406 W. Trade Street, this Victorian revival home was moved to its prominent Queens Road location in 1916 by the McManaway family. Known for its stately classic symmetry with center halls that run front to rear on both the main and upper floors, the fabulous front piazza greets you. Fine millwork, soaring ceiling heights, formal and informal rooms are perfectly scaled for entertaining and flow. The Don Duffy designed kitchen overlooks the lovely backyard and salt water pool. Four generous-sized bedrooms, each with access to a bath, are light filled through the arched windows. An architectural delight, this home has been on both the 1977 ASID home tour and the 2011 Garden Tour. Don't miss the opportunity to own one of Charlotte's most historic homes. Showings begin Wednesday June 2, 2021.
