Majestic Myers Park—a National Historic District
Both our Queens Terrace and Hermitage Court buildings are located in the heart of the distinguished Myers Park neighborhood, arguably the finest and grandest neighborhood in the city. Queens Terrace, which houses 7 of our furnished apartments, is situated on sought-after Queens Road and our Hermitage Court building is located on prestigious Hermitage Court, across the street from the Neo-classical Frank Simmons home, one of the oldest homes in the neighborhood, built in 1913.
Curving, tree-lined avenues, gracious homes, stately mansions and small parks combine to make Myers Park one of the most liveable neighborhoods in the South, where generations of prominent Charlotteans have made their home. Street cars originally ran down the median of Queens Road, and now beautiful flowering cherry trees grace the street.
Hermitage Court is a quiet lane with a beautifully landscaped median. There are four coporate apartments in the building. Stone gateways flank each end of the street, and provide a grand entrance to the neighborhood, developed between 1913 and 1925. Almost a century later, the overwhelming majority of the houses retain their original architectural character.
Located one mile from Uptown, home to multiple museums, the convention center, Bobcats Arena, Panthers Stadium and the Epicentre entertainment complex, Myers Park was created by famous landscape architect John Nolen in 1911. Nolen’s vision for Myers Park was to use the natural curves, gentle hills, and creeks in the area to create a secluded glen cut off from the city.

Wide sidewalks and towering willow oak trees throughout the neighborhood provide an ideal place for walking or jogging, and a coffee shop, many restaurants (including Ethiopian, Thai, casual and fine Italian, etc.) a deli-market, antique shops and even an independent movie theater are a half mile away. Spring through fall, a farmers market is open Wed, Fri and Sat around the corner, and a new greenway offers a convenient connection to Freedom Park, Dilworth and Carolinas Medical Center. Theatre Charlotte, our community theatre since 1927, is across the street from Queens Terrace, and offers several productions throughout the season.
Edgehill Park provides a quiet secluded place for a walk and makes for a great “loop” walk along Edgehill Rd. N. and Edgehill Rd. S.
