James A. Blakeney House, 9214 Blakeney Heath Road, Charlotte NC 28277

The James A. Blakeney House is an early 20th century farmhouse located in Mecklenburg County. The fact that is has survived the urban sprawl of South Charlotte is an unbelievable feat. Originally built circa 1904 this intact 2 story colonial revival is an excellent representation of charm and beauty of that era.

The home now sits on a little less than 2 acres but in the 1910's the Blakeney farm consisted of approximately 230 acres. The Blakeney's raised cotton as the principal cash crop. In the 1930's James A. Blakeney JR managed the farm where he raised 3 children. 

During the 1970's the farmland was leased for pasturage. Fortunately in the late 1990's the home was brought back to it's original charm and character. It is now registered with the National Register of Historic Places. 

Home is currently listed for sale with Morris Depew Realty. Please contact Kathy 704-701-4876 for a viewing and/or questions.
