Developed in the 1980s by the Harris Land Company, Seven Eagles is the first phase of a master-planned community encompassing approximately 120 acres. The master plan includes future phases featuring a mixed-use Mediterranean-style retail village and 120 upscale condominium homes.
As the area around it grows and prospers, Seven Eagles reaps the benefits. Home values have steadily climbed since 2011, and Quail Hollow Country Club — considered by many to be one of the great jewels of the South — continues as home of the PGA Wells Fargo Championship each spring.
Without question, The Wells Fargo Championship serves as the defining cultural event for the neighborhood. This prestigious tournament has become one of the top events on the PGA Tour and residents rally around its success.
Seven Eagles is nestled along McMullen Creek roughly between Park Road and Carmel
Road in South Charlotte about 5 minutes from I-77, which provides easy access with I-85 and I-485 — Charlotte’s outerbelt.
Charlotte's love affair with cars — the NASCAR Hall of Fame is located uptown — translates into 20- to 30-minute commutes to uptown during rush hours. However, a growing number of commuters are parking their rides and taking the Charlotte Area Transit System. CATS,
as it's known, runs bus service on Park Road starting at 5:50 a.m. on weekdays until 10:39 p.m. CATS also operates the LYNX Blue Line, the region’s first light rail service to uptown.
If you need to take a taxi, make sure to call ahead as hailing one from the street can be difficult; Uber also services the area.
If you need to travel farther than a car will take you, Charlotte Douglas International
Airport is about 30 minutes away. The world’s sixth busiest airport, this US Airways hub flies to more than 140 nonstop destinations around the globe.
