This is the second wedding venue house that’s hit the Charlotte-area market in recent weeks. The Concord venue is listed at $1.35M.

The basics: The exact address is 391 S. Union St. At 3,630 square feet, it has 5 beds and 1 full and 2 partial baths.

Background: The Concord home, called Ritchie Hill, was built in 1897 and has been in the Ritchie family since 1906. It was fully renovated in 2014 and converted to a wedding and event venue.

  • “This estate presents a unique opportunity to own a piece of Concord history,” listing agent Charlie Williams said. “From the classic architecture and expansive acreage to its stellar reputation as a sought-after event venue, Ritchie Hill presents endless possibilities for the discerning buyer.”

Layout: The Victorian-style house has five bedrooms, multiple living spaces, a commercial-grade kitchen, a 1,900-square-foot wraparound porch and two sleeping porches upstairs.

  • It’s on 4.4 acres. The two acres in the back can be used for additional event space. Or the new owners could add a a pool, tennis courts or even residential cottages.

Highlights: Eight fireplaces, beautiful landscaping, a blend of modern upgrades and historic charm, light-filled interiors, stunning porches.

Zoom out: The wedding industry came to a halt when COVID-19 hit more than a year ago. But with most restrictions in North Carolina lifted, people are ready to party again.

  • Just last week we featured a wedding venue house in Monroe, listed at $1.8M. The couple operating the venue decided to take a step back, but they’ll help the new owners with the transition if they decide to continue to run the event space.

Here’s a look around.
