The Many Shapes and Sizes of Charlotte’s Luxury Abodes
Charlotte is no longer a simple Southern city, and neither is her real estate. Luxury homes in the Queen City aren’t just the staid colonials of yore (although those are certainly still around and as classically grand as ever), they’re modernized and personalized houses that truly redefine the meaning of “home.” Whether they stand in tradition or solidly in modernity, a high-rise or a sprawling acreage, the neighborhoods of Charlotte offer comfortable extravagance in all shapes and sizes.
TRADITIONAL in South Charlotte
The older neighborhoods of Charlotte are rife with historic homes and genteel living, and the Greenwood Estate is the apex of such properties.Steeped with Southern architectural history, the home was crafted with reclaimed millwork from the Charleston area and built to stand the test of time (and trends). The gated property offers 20 acres of low country elegance right here in South Charlotte with unrivaled enhancements, including a quaint guest cabin and English garden-style pool with cabana house. It’s centrally located (just minutes from the Arboretum), but in the midst of all that acreage, the home feels as private as a true estate.
MODERN in Waxhaw
We love historic charm, but there’s a lot to be said for “new,” too. For the homeowner who wants to stay rooted firmly in the 21st century, Charlotte’s southern neighbors boast lots of fresh properties. Built in 2014 inside the gated Longview Country Club, this home offers sleek, state-of-the-art luxury in a shiny, new package. That means classic design elements like Carrera marble countertops and hardwoods paired with modern amenities like a Mr. Steam shower, Miracle massage tub, Sonos audio, and Jenn-Air Pro appliances.
ORNATE in Myers Park
Historically, luxury was reserved for the elite, like grand castles decked in artful fineries and bursting with timeless antiques. But this kind of design isn’t just a thing of the past—take this home in Myers Park as an example. From delicately carved doorknobs to dozens of stained glass panes, this house is an actual piece of art. Two large travertine terraces and multiple entertaining spaces make this unique home an entertainer’s—or Anglophile’s—dream.
PENTHOUSE at 230 S. Tryon
Even our classic Southern hometown harbors big-city luxury. Uptown’s bustling streets are known for their banking businesses, but here you’ll also find extravagant condos and one very special two-story penthouse. This personalized property is sparklingly modern, but with curated textures and features, it certainly isn’t sparse. Four fireplaces, four balconies, and smart home technology make this an unprecedented property.
