If you’ve been dreaming French Country living in the heart of Charlotte — and really, who hasn’t? — you need to take a look at this jaw dropper of a manor located on nearly two acres and listed by Lexie Longstreet of Savvy + Co. Real Estate for $3 million.

This estate home was custom built in 2000, then completely remodeled for entertaining and creating a casual living lifestyle. Filled with unimaginable extras, this home is located off a quiet road in the middle of the city.

“Based on the shear size alone it might get heads turning! With over 11000 square feet of living space PLUS a heated and cooled four car garage,” says Lexie Longstreet of Savvy + Co. Real Estate. “It’s hard to find a bigger house. BUT it’s still comfortable for casual living. There isn’t any wasted space.”

Grab your friends, let’s take a look around.

Built-in cappuccino maker, huge island and scullery pantry

The kitchen looks like it jumped right off a magazine cover and the “OMG” keeps coming. Everyone will want to hang out in the kitchen with the large, rich kitchen island with Calcutta Gold marble, built-in refrigerators, Wolfe cooktop, sub-zero refrigerator and freezer, warming drawer and (drum roll please) a built-in Miele cappuccino maker.

This space is not only stunning, but includes plenty of storage and a scullery butler’s pantry so you can bring all your dishes and favorite mugs. A dumbwaiter runs between the garage and kitchen for easy lifting.

It’s easy to see why this house has been so popular. “The house has hosted some high profile players — including Ice Cube and Kevin
Hart — along with Panthers players when they were filming a promo commercial for Ride Along,” says Lexie. “And if you’re into Charlotte’s finest, it was also a Symphony Guild Show House back in the day.”

Six bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and stunning master retreat

Retiring to this tranquil master suite takes “me time” to a whole new level. The suite has been fully remodeled and includes new cabinetry and marble countertops, heated marble floors, double shower with steam feature and clawfoot tub. From this fab perch you get the best view of the pool and expansive yard.

Next, take the elevator to the second floor where you will find four large bedrooms with private baths and a family room/loft area. Each room has its own unique personality with sitting areas, moldings, hardwood floors and more.

“It isn’t often you find a house with this many luxury amenities that also works for normal everyday family life. There are always people jogging and walking the neighborhood with their dogs in tow,” adds Lexie.

Extra-special spaces

What makes this home really special are all the delightful, extra spaces that will make your soul happy. There’s a finished attic with a skylight plus full bath and sink. The perfect hideaway for an art studio, craft room or apartment.

The basement offers another great space to come together with a family and theater room. You’ll be ready to entertain all night long with a wet bar, wine cellar and fridge for late night snacking.

The four-car garage is finished and heated and cooled with tons of room for all your roadsters.

Last, but not least, are the many ways to experience fine outdoor living with a covered porch, second level terrace and resort-inspired pool and cabana. Your summer plans have just been made! If you need space for soccer or football practice, you’ll find the lit sports court right beyond the pool.

“How many times have you thought — I wish I had a sports field for soccer, football or lacrosse in my back yard?,” asks Lexie. “Plus it’s lit for nighttime practice. We are talking GOALS. And if you’ve been wanting to work on your short game — this place could be set up with a full fledged green. With over 1.8 acres there is plenty of space.”

All this “oh-la-la” is in the heart of Charlotte. This one you need to see for yourself!
