Myers Park penthouse condo with seriously wild ceilings asks $3.5 million



Nothing, and I mean nothing, about the reserved, tidy brick exterior of the four-story brick condo building at Queens Road, Morehead Street and Edgehill Road could have prepared me for the listing inside.

This condominium building is located on Queens Road, a few blocks from CMC Main. Photos via Sotheby’s listing.

As the penthouse in the Edgehill Condominiums, this $3.5 million condo already has excellent views. But its wildest views are found when looking up. Let’s go inside. No place in Charlotte has ceilings like these.

Listing: 974 Queens Road, Charlotte, NC 28207 // Edgehill Condominiums, Penthouse // $3,500,000 5,284 square feet, 5 beds, 4.5 baths with elevator to private foyer.

In a city where ‘style’ can often mean tearfully boring restraint, I’m excited to find examples of anyone going balls-to-the-wall with their look, whatever that look might be.

Not unlike visiting the Cloisters at the Met in NYC, there’s a lot of medieval mystery to see in this property, so grab a snack and put on your walking shoes.

I’m containing myself to the ceilings for this tour, which is hard, because look at the door frame on the entrance to the media room.

Whether it’s your taste or not, you’ve got to respect this home.

Let’s start with the stained glass above the billiards room. So much happening here.

Don’t miss the intricate model ship on the right.

Now on to the sitting room, the one decorated in the sky blues and golds.

Do you see the rainbow mural on the ceiling?

I clicked through the slide show three times before noticing the rainbow. And once you know to look for the rainbow, you know to look for so much more.
There’s another rainbow on the ceiling in the foyer, and that rainbow mural also has a unicorn. This is not a drill: There is a unicorn on the ceiling.

I will never again be cutting through on the way to Dilworth or the hospital without wondering about this place.
