Built in 1960 and designed by Charlotte modernist architect Alan Ingram, this home exemplifies the best of mid-century modern architecture; post and beam construction, vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, walls of glass, an open floor plan that creates flow as well as superb entertaining spaces and more intimate spaces for family gatherings. A glass “cube” sitting room and steel walkway over the front koi pond are only a few things that make this home unforgettable.
A master suite addition that blends seamlessly with the original home design was completed in 2009. Lovers of mid-century modern architecture will enjoy the fabulous original features as well as the modern master suite that provides 2 walk-in closets, beautiful master bath, and master bedroom with morning kitchen and a panoramic view to the outdoors.
Home is situated on a large lot with mature landscaping, a large level back yard with large patio areas. A great south Charlotte location that is ultra convenient to popular south Charlotte shopping/dining areas of Southpark, Cotswold Mall, Philips Place and Strawberry Hill. Easy Uptown Charlotte commute.
