A Secluded Lifestyle with all the Urban Convenience's
Enjoy downtown Charlotte, Mountain Island Lake, Lake Norman, Mall Shopping and Restaurants while living in this Country Estate. A ten to fifteen minute drive and its all yours. Hop on I-485 or Brookshire Blvd and arrive in Center City or Southpark in minutes. Dont give up choosing from a variety of restaurants or seeing movies at the mall theater. There are nearby grocery stores in several directions, including those with organic selections. Purchase locally grown produce from nearby neighbors. This home offers a great opportunity for home schooling and yet so close to several private and local charter schools. The location also suits a boaters lifestyle situated close to two popular lakes.
The home sits on an 8.5 acre farm that will allow you to keep your horses, goats, chickens, alpacas or other farm animals without giving up a quality filled urban lifestyle. The two stall barn with chicken coop is ideal for most any farm animal you and your family may desire. The barn has cinderblock stalls, a feed room and equipment/tack room. There is one fenced pasture around the barn and a second pasture just waiting for some final fencing. Walk the existing trail and/or make more trails throughout the woods for short trail rides. The year round creek also supplements the spring fed pond if needed. Stock the pond with fish or simply explore the many existing living habitats. After taking care of farm animals enjoy a refreshing dip in the large, deep Gunite pool or sit back and relax on the back deck while enjoying the views and tranquility.
You will love the architectural details of the 3,935 sq ft home. Great angles, quality features and walls of windows make this home a pleasure. You will appreciate the high ceilings, hardwood floors, river rock fireplace and views from all of the rooms. The open staircase and catwalk contribute to the openness and brightness of the floor plan. Sliding glass doors from the main floor rooms open to the large back deck and pool area. The builder was creative in designing the rock fireplace by utilizing the back wall of the chimney as an accent wall in the dining room. The wet bar and built-in china cabinets are also nice compliments to the dining room. Plenty of counter top space, two full size sinks and the gas cook top makes for efficient meal preparation. In addition to the new granite counters and tile backsplash there is a side by side Sub-Zero Freezer and Refrigerator. The sunken den has a gas fireplace and built-in book cases and cabinets.
The third fireplace is in the large first floor master suite. There will be no arguing over time and privacy in the master bath. Two complete sides with lots of closet space, individual tiled vanities and commodes. A walk-through tiled shower & sunken garden tub finish off the master bath to perfection. Three bedrooms and a bonus room make up the second floor. Two balconies overlook the landscaped front yard.
The privacy this property offers is hard to imagine this close to downtown. Located off the main street in a cul-de-sac, the tree lined driveway opens to the landscaped yard. Whether you want the city life and its conveniences or a farm life, this property provides both opportunities. No more wasting precious hours of the day commuting to work or for urban conveniences.
