Captivating One-Level in Highgate | Weddington | Union County
Highgate, one of Union county’s loveliest neighborhoods, welcomes every resident with a divided tree-lined entry. Gently curving and rolling streets create a warm, friendly feel. Every home, distinctively different from the next, has an impressive look and beautiful lot.
“Highgate is a highly sought-after neighborhood,” says Dee Reid, an agent with luxury real estate leader Ivester Jackson Distinctive Properties along with Christie’s International Real Estate. “Homes here never last long. Proximity to I-485 and to uptown Charlotte make it the perfect location just outside the city. Excellent schools heighten values and appeal to families.”
A sensational transitional, this residence greets with beautiful stone and brick highlighted with dark wood shutters. The circular drive leads to a porch covered entry surrounded by mature landscaping. Large window sets, some floor to ceiling, create a stunning exterior and allow natural light throughout the interior. “Special features allure throughout this house. Hybrid Brazilian cherry floors provide a warm and elegant atmosphere. Eight-foot solid core doors and tasteful lighting fixtures enhance every room,” comments Dee Reid.
Upon entering, a spacious entry melds into a gorgeous and large dining room with coffered ceiling inviting dinner parties and family gatherings. The open entry leads on to a wonderful office with stunning windows and built-in floor to ceiling cherry shelves. A formal living space with gorgeous windows offers views of the striking backyard landscaping and also boasts a coffered ceiling.
A cook’s dream kitchen with cherry cabinets catches attention with a custom mantel over the cooktop. All high-end, professional appliances are stainless steel and include a double oven, cooktop with grill and griddle, and oversized refrigerator. A delightful pinnacle ceiling makes the kitchen eating area a charming place for meals or a cup of coffee. Between the kitchen and dining room sits a butler’s pantry with wine cooler and ice machine.
Great for entertaining, the kitchen opens into the adjacent family room. With an exquisite stacked stone fireplace and cherry built-in shelves on either side, the room speaks an atmosphere of comfort and warmth. Abundant windows and doors in both the family room and eating area open to the large, flagstone terrace. Both indoor and outdoor entertaining flows naturally through these spaces. Retractable screens provide shade on sunny mornings.
A fireplace with marble and wood surround, the master bedroom has lovely outdoor views and tray ceiling and is the perfect spot for relaxing. Natural tumbled tile in both the shower, with multiple heads and water jets, and the oversized whirlpool tub gives a warm and tonal look to a spa-like room. His and her vanities add to the ambience with marble countertops.
An oversized master closet with custom built-ins finishes the master suite. Three additional bedrooms with adjoining baths are light-filled and generous in size.
Beauty meets function in spaces designed for everyday living. An oversize laundry room, mudroom, and back hall move through to the three-cargarage with built-in cabinets and the fenced backyard. An extra wide staircase continues to the second floor where a bonus room with wet bar and full bath offer opportunity for another bedroom, an entertainment space or hobby/workroom. Storage in the extra-large closet is easy and abundant.
