Right now, $5 million gets you a 5-plus-bedroom home, featuring magazine-worthy design, on a big lot along a tree-lined street — and extras like golf course views, or an at-home dog washing station.

These multi-million dollar mansions are in Myers Park, Quail Hollow, and Eastover — some of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods.


2251 Vernon Drive – $4,950,000

Newly renovated Myers Park mansion with pizza oven and dog wash station

Why we love it: This Myers Park stunner is what dreams are made of. We’re talking spacious bedrooms with en-suite baths and big closets; a third-floor movie theater with soundproof walls and a bar; a dog washing station with built-in kennels; and gorgeous architectural details. The master suite is enviable. It features two custom walk-in closets, a spa-like bathroom with heated floors, and a fireplace.

7430 Baltusrol Lane – $5,250,000

Sprawling estate with European feel and Quail Hollow golf course views

Why we love it: Starting with the dramatic circular driveway with a fountain this five-bed home is up front with all of its grandeur. The interior features a marble entry with curved staircase, ornate paneling and ceiling work, a giant wine cellar, an eight-car garage made for collectors, and an elevator. And the terrace and pool setup overlooking the Quail Hollow golf course was made for entertaining — it’s the only place I want to party for the Wells Fargo tournament.

401 Eastover Road – $5,495,000

Elegant Eastover abode designed by Meyer Greeson Architecture and built by Philip Thomas in 2000, enhanced by Ken Pursley and Ben Page in 2016

Why we love it: This Eastover abode has a careful balance of traditional charm with modern elegance. Features include a green-hued kitchen with a stately fireplace, a fabulous master suite with a modern, chic walk-in, and a giant flex/playroom. The outdoor area is the star of the show, though.
