When this lakefront estate hits the market on Friday, it’ll be the most expensive house on the market in the Charlotte area. The Mooresville home, dubbed “Grand Lac Chateau,” is asking $7,995,000.
The house, designed by JJ Barja of Elite Design Group and built by Augusta Homes, is inspired by the castles the owners fell in love with along the French countryside.
“It’s breath-taking, just incredible,” listing agent Josh Tucker of HM Properties says. “This is a landmark for the lake. It’s one of the biggest, nicest, most expensive houses on Lake Norman.”
Tucker says the current owners are moving to Los Angeles for work opportunities — one is in the music industry, the other can work remote.
At 11,595 square feet it has 6 bedrooms, 7 baths, and 2 powder rooms. The 8.5-acre property also features a 70,000-gallon pool with a 60-foot infinity edge and lake views.
Grand Lac Chateau blends the charm and grandeur you might expect from a European castle with the easy-breezy Southern lifestyle Lake Norman living brings.
To achieve the castle-like design, no detail was overlooked during the three-year building process from 2015 to 2018.
“There are so many details (in this house) that the average home just doesn’t have,” Tucker says. “Many houses have a movie theater, but not a custom movie theater that’s like having an iMAX in your house. Many houses have a pool, but not a 70,000-gallon pool.”
The foyer sets the tone of the home with it’s can’t-miss grandeur. It features a 60-foot turret that runs from the basement to the upper level; white oak hardwood floors with marble inlay; pre-cast concrete spiral stairs; and Venetian plaster custom paint.
Opulence oozes throughout. Take the custom kitchen: the blue range is like the home’s ever-important statement necklace. It’s a LaCornue Chateau Series Grand Palais 180 Range, which are made in France and start at $60,000. This one is lavender blue with copper and stainless finishes.
Other luxe touches throughout include 12-foot-plus ceilings, white oak flooring, 130 audio speakers, and fully automated lighting, shades, security, fans, audio systems, etc.
