Wowzers! Sleek, Sexy Post & Beam MCM in Way Cool Burtonwood!

For all your living and entertaining needs!

Nestled on large private lot in Burtonwood, a canopied pocket neighborhood of custom homes on large lots and one of Charlotte’s best kept secrets. This neighborhood is located along the proposed Silver Light Rail Line with two stops very close by. Commuting to Uptown or Mathews will be a breeze! 

This very special home was custom designed and built in 1956 for the Bigg family, owners of the Bigg Camera Business for decades in Charlotte. The current sellers are only the second owners of the home and took great pride in preserving all the mid-century modern details while renovating it. 

The home is set far off from the road offering an expansive front lawn. The low slung profile accented by roman brick, vertical board siding, exposed beams, slate walkway and porch set the tone as you approach the front entrance. Once inside, you are greeted by huge a expanse of glass and vaulted ceilings with exposed beams which grace almost every room in this amazing home. A formal living room with wood burning fireplace is open to the formal dining room with an exposed brick wall. The den, with gas log fireplace, is at the rear of the home and is open to a fabulous, renovated kitchen. A wall of windows highlights the open rail stairs to the lower level.

The kitchen has charcoal modern cabinet fronts with coordinating solid surface counters, stainless steel appliances and a ceramic glass backsplash. The appliances include a 5 burner gas range with hood above, built-in wall oven, dishwasher and side-by-side refrigerator. Added features include an elongated window over the sink area, a breakfast bar, custom pullouts and a pop-up mixer shelf! 

Both the kitchen and dining rooms lead to the light-filled sunroom which makes a great breakfast and reading area, and offers access to the private terrace and hot tub area, plus leads to the double attached carport.

The main level master bedroom has a slider to a private balcony, overlooking the wooded rear yard. It offers a renovated bath with modern tile, frameless glass  shower and floating vanity. There is a walk-in closet, plus another closet. 

A renovated hall bath shines, offering beautiful glass tiles and floating vanity! This bath serves guests as well as the secondary bedrooms on the main level. 

The lower level offers tons of windows in an expansive rec room with a mini-kitchen and access to another terrace and the fenced rear yard. There is also a fourth bedroom and third bath on this level as well as a laundry and storage areas. 

A mid-century modern lovers 2,600+ sf dream home in a urban setting on a private .6+ acre lot long the future Light Rail… all at $350,000. Welcome Home!!!
