Home for the Hobbyist:
This Sardis Croft-Charlotte home is a lovely, architect designed, custom built and a beautifully maintained home. It features an excellent location in a private cul-de-sac in the Sardis Croft, Charlotte neighborhood. The 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath house offers all the expected features for today’s lifestyles as well as a tremendous amount of flexible space.
The driveway leads to two side-loading single connected garages plus a detached building with an oversized single garage door and an outside parking space. The beautiful and mature landscaping accents the front yard with a curving sidewalk leading to the entry. To the left of the front door, a large sunny terrace is partially covered with a pergola and surrounded by a black wrought-iron fence. Landscaping creates a private area in the terrace for relaxing, bar-b-que grilling and al fresco dining.
The front entry opens to the family, living and dining rooms. The two story, vaulted ceiling living room and dining room
can be open to each other or closed with pocket glass doors for more intimate dining. These two rooms offer distinct, comfortable areas for entertaining and living enjoyment. The family room is distinguished from the entry by two large columns and offers optimal space for furniture arrangement. The family room flows into to the two story living room through a large opening. These spaces would be comfortable individually yet offer outstanding combined potential for larger scale entertaining. The living room has a gas-burning fireplace as a focal point which is also viewable from the dining room. Large windows in the family room provide natural light to the entire open living area.
A powder room, half bath is centrally located on the main floor and is very convenient for guests. A rear staircase at the end of the entry on the main level is accentuated by a 2 ½ story window with two art shelves in the wall on the lower landing.
Located to the left and beyond the entry, the tiled kitchen and adjacent breakfast room present ideal space for cooking, informal dining and entertaining. The kitchen is efficiently arranged and well equipped to facilitate food preparation and storage. A pantry is adjacent to the refrigerator, a wall oven, and separate microwave. A smooth surface electric cooktop and exhaust hood, located opposite the wall oven, is surrounded by countertop space. Natural-finish maple cabinets offer storage as well as display opportunities from some glass front cabinets and open shelves. A long peninsula separating the kitchen from the breakfast area creates space for countertop dining and entertaining while offering additional storage cabinets beneath.
The sunny breakfast area has a wall of windows and a door opening to the terrace for access to grilling and outdoor dining. Double doors in the area house a well-appointed laundry area.
The owner’s suite, located on the main floor, is accessible through a door, via a short hall off the kitchen creating a private sanctuary that is spacious and inviting. The two story bedroom has a door to the terrace, a large wall of windows and a vaulted ceiling. Custom shelves and hanging racks outfit the large well-organized owner’s closet accessible from the bedroom and from the hall into the bath. The beautifully updated bath has double vanities, a seated vanity area, an oversized shower, and a separate toilet closet with bidet plus plenty of space for a dressing bench or other furniture. A door from the bathroom leads to the fenced side yard area of the property.
The second level contains two large bedrooms connected by a Jack and Jill bath. This level offers an abundance of storage and closets. One bedroom is oversized, with adequate space for a sitting area, a play area or a second large bed. The second bedroom is adjacent to a separate room that would be ideal for a workout room, study room or nursery. Each bedroom has a private vanity room and shares the room with a white-tiled tub/shower and toilet. The separate room has pull-down attic stairs that are covered by a well insulated, counterweighted, easy open box door that leads to an R60, super insulated attic space with a large floored area for even more storage.
The basement level landing leads to the garage, a mechanical room, a large under-stair closet and a flex-space room containing the 4th bedroom and a third full bathroom. The large under-stair utility closet is conveniently located at the bottom of the stairs and is opposite the mechanical room that also has tremendous storage space. The mechanical room contains the lower unit, high efficiency has gas/central AC unit and a fully wired, whole house security system.
The walkout lower level is currently utilized as an office and is completely finished to the same standards as the other levels of the house. This bright space was intended as a mother-in-law suite and can be closed to the rest of the house. This space could also be an excellent location for a pool table or study space. Electrical power (110v & 220V), natural gas and a sink drain connection are installed for a kitchen at one end of the living area. Adjacent and open to the living area is another large room which has two wall closets and a large, walk-in closet creating the fourth bedroom. Both rooms access the third full bathroom.
This home and detached building feature 3 ½ inch plantation shutters in all windows and doors. New carpet has been installed in carpeted areas throughout and all four toilets in the house are new, high efficiency, non-clogging American Standard fixtures. All floors and the garage have access to the central vacuum system. Designer ceiling fans are installed in the two-story living and master bedrooms as well as the lower level office area.
The two, well lit, single car garages are connected on a lower level and have extensive floor area. With a 17 foot ceiling, a mezzanine has been added in the longer bay for even more storage, above and below, and a workbench for projects. A second workbench has been added at the end of the shorter bay which includes a sink and workbench counter for plant and yard projects. This oversized space between the bays is outfitted with the owner’s storage shelves and containers for power and gardening tools of all sizes. The central vacuum system power unit is located on the stairs to the top mezzanine level and has an outside vent to remove all dust from the house.
