When Edward Latta initially began developing Dilworth in 1891, he introduced an electric streetcar built by the Edison Electric Company. It brought city dwellers beyond the outskirts of the city for recreation. The success of Latta’s project was dependent on wealthy and middle-class potential homebuyers realizing they could enjoy a country lifestyle and easily commute to the city center for work. He purposefully established a racetrack, baseball field and municipal fairgrounds at the end of the trolley line so passengers had to ride by the homes for sale. By 1912, Latta began to develop these areas in consultation with the Olmstead Brothers landscape architect firm. Olmsted Brothers was already famous for its work with the White House, Duke University, The Biltmore Estate and Audubon Park in New Orleans. They recommended a grand winding and circular road rather than the grid design used thus far–and thus was born Dilworth Roads East and West, just a block from Magnolia Green.here.
Our Queens Terrace, 510 Queens 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 livable 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 corporate 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.
Our Hawthorne building, home to 4 1br furnished apartments, is located in the Elizabeth neighborhood, the city’s second-oldest “streetcar suburb”, dating from 1891. With its central location adjacent to Uptown, the area is convenient to all of Charlotte, no matter what direction.
Many of the older bungalows have been tastefully enlarged to accommodate modern families, and there are still a multitude of the original landmark homes in the neighborhood with character completely intact. The neighborhood has a youthful, energetic and vibrant feeling.
In addition to the incredibly beautiful residential streets, there are thriving commercial areas with some of the city’s finest restaurants, as well as neighborhood favorites. Of particular interest to movie fanatics, Visart video is an independent video store with an enormous catalog of almost every movie you can imagine. Jazz is on tap several nights a week at the long-standing Cajun Queen restaurant. The Plaza-Midwood commercial district is just a half mile away, with many restaurants, bars, shops and galleries to fill up a full day and night.
The neighborhood hosts an annual Easter egg hunt, progressive dinner and a Home and Garden tour.
Independence Park, just 2 blocks from our Hawthorne building, is the oldest public park in the city, and one of its most gracious, with a reflecting pool and rose garden, tree-lined paths, tennis courts and playing fields.
You’ll enjoy a true taste of city life in this active neighborhood where there’s always something interesting going on, from vegan beer dinners at Fern to the neighborhood’s annual 8k road race.
