Designed under the vigilant eye of Preserve Mecklenburg historical society, Foxcroft’s enclave of eight private residences will be a delightful complement to the revitalization and preservation of the historic McNinch House and estate grounds. Much of the land surrounding McNinch House and the Foxcroft Place Residences will be elegantly landscaped and placed into a preservation easement that will assure its protection in perpetuity.


Located just a short drive from Uptown Charlotte, North Carolina, in the highly sought-after SouthPark area, Foxcroft Place is truly at the heart of it all. Minutes from upscale shopping, hundreds of restaurants, excellent schools, family activities and all the bustling city of Charlotte has to offer.  


Inspired by the historical splendor of the McNinch House, the Foxcroft Place Residences are designed in the traditional colonial style balanced with key modern touches. The floorplans also feature traditional architectural elements while the overall designs will bring current indulgences like oversized master suites, open living areas and delightful outdoor living spaces.


Foxcroft Place is devoted to the revitalization of the historic McNinch estate grounds. With a sharp focus on preserving mature, native trees and maintaining as much green space as possible while restoring the grounds to their former glory and beyond, Foxcroft Place will transform the landscape into intentional, lush, vibrant estate gardens.

The McNinch Estate & Grounds


The McNinch House was originally home to Frank Ramsay McNinch and his wife, Hulda Groome McNinch. Built nearly 100 years ago in what was then rural, open farmland on (unpaved) Sharon Lane just outside Charlotte, N. Carolina, McNinch House is a stately Colonial Revival-style home that is said to have been inspired in part by Mt. Vernon.
Frank McNinch was a lawyer by training and a captivating orator who became a celebrated mayor of Charlotte, then rose the political ranks in Washington, D.C. after supporting Herbert Hoover in the 1928 presidential election. Mr. McNinch was a staunch supporter of Prohibition; an early advocate for fresh air and exercise which led him to designate many parks, playgrounds and green spaces around Mecklenburg County; and he once made the cover of TIME Magazine.

What will always stand the test of time? Classic lines, quality craftsmanship, and the inherent trust that comes with decades of experience.
