The house was built in 2018, and even though the design is sleek and simple looking, it’s sneakily loaded with luxurious perks.
It’s on almost half an acre on the edge of Freedom Park near the pond. The house was designed by Charlotte architect Frank Smith, and it sticks out in the best way — in this neighborhood you usually see more classic Southern styles — with a white stucco exterior that’s dominated by contemporary windows and glass.
The house is at 1516 Princeton Ave. At 6,390 square feet, there are six bedrooms, six full bathrooms and two half baths.
It’s loaded with cool features like a wall-mounted iPad, surround sound, a six-camera security system, remote-controlled fireplaces, retractable walls, a sauna and more.
The floor plan is really open and made with entertaining in mind — the kitchen has plenty of room to hang around the huge island, and it opens up to one of the living room spaces.
The dining room and another living room are just on the other side — perfect for a dinner party or hosting family gatherings.
I love the idea of being able to cook in the kitchen and still be a part of the party and conversation.
I love how the house feels sophisticated but not sterile. From the large black window panes to the rectangular remote-controlled fireplaces and minimalist light fixtures, the clean lines throughout showcase the best of modern design.
And even though the house has a minimalist aesthetic, the finishes are definitely luxe.
You’re getting a pretty simple bathroom but with floor-to-ceiling marble; you’re getting a walk-in closet but with quality custom built ins.
Most of the spaces in the house serve a more functional purpose, but this one is for pure entertainment and comfort — and I love it.
Having some sort of dedicated media room is fairly common for high-end homes, but this is a true home theater. You have the surround sound, a projector, acoustic panels and several rows of movie-style recliners with cup holders and trays.
The outdoor space is just as well thought out as the interior. My favorite features are the pizza oven and putting green — those are things you don’t typically see even in other luxury properties.
There’s also a patio area with retractable walls, a heated pool with a fire place and a built-in grill.
