This opulent estate is in the leafy, gated environs of Greenwood, just south of Uptown Charlotte, the city’s corporate and financial hub. Don Evans, AIA architect and founder of the Florida-based Evans Group, designed the home in the style of a Palm Beach Mediterranean palazzo.
The stucco façade, accented with limestone, sits under a hand-crafted roof. The ornate interior finishes include beautiful white-washed tile floors and hand-carved limestone fireplaces.
The living and entertaining areas include a formal dining room, large gourmet kitchen, wood-panelled library with study, a lavishly appointed drawing room with a saltwater aquarium, and a pirate-themed game room. The aquatic theme continues outside with a serene koi pond.
There are eight bedrooms, 10 full bathrooms, and a powder room. Two bedrooms are on the main floor. The opulent owner’s suite provides separate bathrooms, fireplace, steam shower, sauna, and two large, custom closets.
The features don’t end there. This suite also has a second office, recording studio, gym, and private terrace with outdoor shower and bathtub, and waterfall.
The rear gardens are a private oasis with a classically inspired saltwater pool, a fenced sports court for tennis and full-court basketball, and a putting green—with sand traps. There’s also a six-vehicle garage for the car collector.
