Welcome to Eastover
Gorgeous historic properties in a wonderfully central location.
Located across Providence Road from the prestigious Myers Park neighborhood in southeast Charlotte, Eastover is one of the Queen City’s most attractive historic neighborhoods. Primarily residential in character, Eastover has long been known for its grand stately homes, many of which have belonged to some of Charlotte’s most prominent historical figures.
The neighborhood’s gently rolling hillsides slope down toward Briar Creek. Its tree-lined streets provide an idyllic setting for its many luxurious properties and spacious single-family homes.
Famed urban planner Earle Sumner Draper was involved in designing the neighborhood’s early development. A walk through Eastover’s attractive streets and curving drives will quickly confirm why Draper has been called the South’s greatest urban planner.
Much of the neighborhood’s historic appeal stems from the Prohibition area, when Eastover became a favored home of many of Charlotte’s most influential businessmen. Eastover exudes a magnificent sense of Old-World grandeur, while its central location ensures it enjoys the very best of modern Charlotte’s metropolitan amenities.
