Multiple all-cash offers over asking have already been made on the house, which hit the market on Saturday, listing agent Stephen Cooley told me.

The exact address is 704 E. 36th St., right off NoDa’s main commercial district. It’s 3,216 square feet with 4 beds and 2.5 baths.

At $1,595,000, the new asking price is nearly double what its former owners, who own NoDa Company Store, sold it for back in August 2018.

  • “When I sold it [in 2018], it was the highest price sale in the NoDa, and when it sells this time, it will be the new trendsetter for highest pricing in NoDa,” Cooley said.

Driving the price: The current owner, Michael Haynes, bought the house for $800k in 2018. And he spent almost as much on renovating it, Cooley said.

  • Haynes owns a landscaping company called The Loving Group. So in addition to interior upgrades, he did extensive landscaping and outdoor living renovations.
  • The backyard now features a glass-enclosed indoor-outdoor living area, new pool and hot tub, decking and hardscaping, outdoor kitchen (with a pizza oven!!), fresh landscaping and a three-car garage.

    No house has sold in NoDa for over $1M, Cooley told me, but several more modest homes have been purchased as tear downs with luxury homes built in their place.

    • If those new builds hit the market in the next couple of years, they’ll sell north of $2M, Cooley predicts.

    So far, offers have come in from current NoDa and Charlotte residents, as well as people relocating from outside of North Carolina.

    • One person from San Diego, for example, flew in to see the house over the weekend, Cooley said.

    Highlights: Welcoming front porch; stunning formal dining room with fireplace and floral wallpaper; rec room; large updated kitchen; spacious primary suite; new outdoor living space; luxury finishes throughout; professional landscaping.

    • “It’s always been a jewel in the arts district,” Cooley said of the 1905 home.
    • Cooley imagines the next owners will be people who like to entertain and who’d be proud to own a piece of Charlotte.
