There is a place just south of Uptown Charlotte that feels as if it is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet it is just a mile or two from many businesses and hotspots. The historic, sought-after residential community features beautiful historic homes and estates, gently rolling hills, large shaded lots, and some of the friendliest neighbors you will find in North Carolina. Welcome to Eastover.
Eastover dates back to 1927, and it has watched generations of its original families grow up, prosper, and raise their own families within the community. However, these old familiar faces gladly welcome newcomers with open arms. This is just one reason why Eastover is one of the most sought-after places to live in all of Charlotte and its metropolitan area.
Other reasons include proximity to great schools, beautiful parks, and local churches. Small local shops and restaurants are practically with walking distances, and the business and entertainment opportunities in Uptown Charlotte are just minutes away. As for architecture, you will not find more beautiful homes anywhere else in the city. From Georgian to Tudor styles, sprawling estates and large bungalows sit on large, shady lots among the community's lush greenery, mature oak trees, and babbling creeks. Residents love that they can count on a quick commute time and spend their evenings kicking back and relaxing in this peaceful neighborhood.
Charlotte's history dates back to 1768 when the "Queen City" was founded and named for Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III of England. Over the next century, it became the site of the nation's first gold rush, a popular spot for cotton farming, and as the railroads rolled in, a major hub for textiles production.
Eastover did not come along until 1927 when a man named E.C. Griffith developed what was once a couple of old dairy farms next to the Myers Park neighborhood. The community eventually attracted some of the city’s most prominent residents and continues to do so today.
Eastover is mostly residential, but it is just minutes away from shopping, dining, and entertainment in every direction. Along Providence Road, you will find an assortment of restaurants, and the Mint Museum is located within the boundaries of the community. There are also a couple of parks nearby. Of course, there are several prominent shopping centers within a 5 to 10-minute drive, and Uptown Charlotte sits just northwest of the community.
There are over 1,000 homes in Eastover, and while most of the earliest-built houses are Colonial style, you will find an assortment of everything from Georgian and Tudor to contemporary and traditional. You will also find a few townhomes in the area, as well as some of the city's most elegant estates. Many homes sit on larger lots on the tree-lined streets. Sidewalks also line the streets throughout much of the neighborhood. Houses typically cost anywhere between $500,000 and $5 million.
