This house was designed by architect Bobby McAlpine — he’s done celebrity homes for Mitt Romney, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, the Walton family (Wal-Mart), plus a few other residences in Charlotte.

The home is currently owned by luxury developer Jim Gross who’s behind Opus Myers Park, Kenwood Sharon Lane in Foxcroft and other major residential projects.

He updated the home in 2018 — and it’s amazing.

It’s not surprising that McAlpine and Gross created a home filled with luxe architectural details.

You’ve got thick moldings and paneling, gorgeous windows everywhere, herringbone fire places and White Oak flooring (it’s expensive).

I love the combination of narrow and wall-sized windows — it lets light flood in while providing additional visual intrigue.

Nothing about this place is cookie cutter, especially this master en suite.

There’s heated floors, a cool tub and stand-in shower. I don’t like the idea of an elliptical in my bedroom, but having it tucked away in the bathroom gives you privacy in an incredibly convenient location — I’m into that.

This is the Pinterest outdoor entertaining area of my dreams.

I love how so much luxury is packed into a small space — it flows really well.
