It’s hard to imagine that this straight-from-the-movie-set property was, at one time, rundown and in need of considerable renovations, if not a complete teardown. But that’s how it began, say the homeowners. Once purchased, the couple decided to renovate the home and bring out its true potential.
They enlisted the help of a general contractor who specializes in the restoration of modern and mid-century homes. It took a year to complete, and the results are nothing short of spectacular.
Lucky for potential buyers, the couple decided to move to Uptown for a more urban lifestyle. They turned to Rhonda + Mike Gibbons with Savvy + Co. Real Estate to sell the home and are ready to work with buyers who want the chance to live in one of the Queen City’s most unique homes!
“What I love best about this home is as soon as you walk in the door you feel good,” Mike Gibbons, listing agent of the property, said. “The warm wood, calming simplicity of design, easy transition from room to room and the expansive floor to ceiling windows make you feel as if you are one with nature and more importantly one with the home.”
The yearlong renovation included the addition of a two-car carport and concrete driveway that parks 15 cars, extensive privacy landscaping and a Japanese Zen style garden. Inside, the Hans Krug kitchen includes two large kitchen islands, a wine fridge that stores 120 bottles, hardwood floors, custom-built closets, smart home engineering and the list goes on and on.
With renovations complete, the home stacks some serious star power! It has been featured in local, national and international publications and used for commercial photo shoots.
Additionally, it won a 2015 mention in Kitchen & Bath Business, was highlighted in Atomic Ranch Magazine and named the featured home in the 2015 Mad About Modern Home tour. Not impressed? This house has a nine foot shower — what?
The outside of this 1.2 acre home on a corner lot is equally dreamy. There’s an extra large covered porch with a party pool. Why do you need a party pool? With deepest point at only six feet, guests can gently wade into the water without spilling their drink. Genius! The amenities continue with two waterfall features, a fireplace, fire pit and four maintenance-free grass strips with hardscaping.
“This home will make you smile,” Gibbons said. “Whether you’re a fan of modern architecture, love simple elegant design or just like to feel truly at peace in your surroundings you will love this home.”
Mid-century modern homes are alive and well in Charlotte, and the team at Savvy + Co. Real Estate knows what defines MCM and where to find these gems. Want to see this home and find your WOW? Give them a call.
