Amazing Lindal Home in the Heart of Charlotte!

Welcome to 1832 Carlanda Circle, a spectacularly renovated Lindal home that exhibits the perfect balance between nature and an urban city lifestyle. Built in 1990, this 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath, 2-story + basement post & beam style home boasts over 4100 square feet of luxury and is perfect for today's modern buyer.
Situated on almost a half acre of land, this fabulous home is within walking distance of one of Charlotte's many greenway trails, Park Road shopping center and 3 of the areas most poplar schools: Myers Park High, Alexander Graham Middle & Selwyn Elementary. Also just a stones throw away you will find plenty of shopping, grocery stores within walking distance, and popular hot spots like South Park and Uptown.

When you venture down Carlanda Circle and pull into the driveway at 1832, the multi-tiered front entry platform walkway with Feeney Cable Railing is sure to catch your eye. Also of interest is the stained wood exterior of the home, lending itself to the perfect mixture between modern style and rustic appeal.
As you step through the front door into the two-story foyer lined with a wall of ceiling to floor windows looking out over the front entryway, the winding spiral staircase will undoubtedly leave a lasting first impression. Upstairs you'll find two light-filled secondary bedrooms and one full bath. In addition to the off-white chick-n-pen tile floor, white tile wall surrounds and mosaic tile lined shower/tub, this bath features new sink and toilet fixtures, a cool circular vanity mirror and a large casement window overlooking the front yard. At the top of the staircase is a spacious loft/office area that makes for a perfect office/reading room and overlooks the expansive wall of windows to the front and the great room to the back. Were you to head downstairs to the open, finished basement, you'll find a large media room, full size billiard table, cozy den area with stone fireplace and french doors leading out to the extensive multi-level deck area. There is also a fourth bedroom with an ensuite bath that's perfect for out of town guests or those teenagers that need their own space.

On the main level of the home, the stunning Great Room is the perfect convergence between the Master Bed & Bath suite to the right and the Kitchen/Dining area to the left. The Great Room displays a wonderfully designed vaulted & beamed ceiling with overlook from above, gas fireplace with mosaic limestone surround that's perfect for those cool late fall evenings, and a soaring wall of windows along the back of the home that will makes you feel miles off the beaten path and surrounded by nature. You're sure to love the way the natural light filters into the Great Room through the canopy of trees in the back yard, filling the room with a warm, natural glow.

The dining area is open to the Great Room and and is separated from the Kitchen by a granite topped breakfast bar. Set towards the back of the home, be sure and open up the French Doors to the back deck to enjoy a little alfresco dining on a cool evening after work. While very open, the Dining Area still retains an intimate feel and ambiance that serves a romantic meal at home well!
The Kitchen boasts a 6-burner gas range, side-by-side refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher. All appliances are Stainless Steel and manufactured by Kitchen Aid. With custom granite throughout and a large island workspace with built in wine rack, this Kitchen is one that the chef of the home is sure to embrace. Just off of the Kitchen toward the front of the house is a cozy buffet nook with a full wall of under counter cabinets for lots of storage and a long granite counter top that serves as a perfect coffee station.

Tucked away off of the main living room, the master bedroom with ensuite bath feels like a cozy retreat from the world. The beamed & wood-slatted ceilings have been freshly painted white and give the room a unique architectural touch adding a light airy appeal. The spacious Master also offers expansive windows overlooking the canopied rear yard and a custom trolley door that leads to the dual walk-in closet/dressing area and master bath. The fresh appeal of the white painted wood ceilings and beams continues into the Master Bathroom and creates a spa-like feel. You're sure to love the natural light pouring in through the large windows and sky-lights, his and her vanities, whirlpool tub & separate stand-up shower. A couple of additional items of note are the wood and frosted glass pocket door and white marble floors. When combined, all of these features lend themselves to a very modern look and feel.

A word about Lindal Homes:
To what do we attribute the success of the Classic Lindal home? Some believe it is the soaring volumes, open spaces and delicately articulated expanses of glass that inspire daily living like no other. Some credit the warm glow of cedar, mated with the massive strength of the post and beam frame and the enduring stability of the homes and the company that produces them. Others credit the quality and continuous refinement. Or is it the unmatched calm and comfort of the Lindal home style, in stark contrast to life itself? 
Given the fact that, like snowflakes, no two Lindal homes are identical, the secret to the Classics longevity may well be the flexibility of the Lindal post-and-beam building system and its ability to respond to virtually every site and every homeowners vision in varied architectural styles without sacrificing its predictability and efficiency
