1000 river oaks lane


This mid-century modern home was custom built and designed by Hubert Whitlock in 1963. The Whitlock Construction firm is an award winning firm that is still building quality homes in the Charlotte area.

Located on a private 2.5 acre lot, the home’s setting is very private and secluded yet minutes to Southpark shopping, medical and entertainment complex. This home truly provides the best of both worlds – a country setting in a convenient South Charlotte location.

The home’s 2016 renovation includes new kitchen and baths, yet still retains mid-century modern details and character. The original dining room parquet floors are made of four different hardwoods that create a stunning and unique design. Natural light floods the home through walls of glass and expansive windows. The foyer’s original ball light, open staircase and planter boxes exude mcm charm. Dramatic vaulted ceiling in the living room with exposed wood beam opens onto the dining room and features a masonry fireplace with floating hearth. Exterior is constructed from California redwood that retains it’s original beauty. Home has a very organic natural vibe created by a mix of wood, copper and masonry. This design has been brought forward with a custom cedar bathroom vanity and copper sink. Truly a unique mid-century home in an exceptional setting.
