I stumbled upon this home via the CLTblog twitter feed. The tweet said there are two pre-1850 homes for sale in Charlotte right now. This is pretty rare because there are only around 5-10 in the city.
I followed the link to this article. Which led me to the discovery of these images of one of the homes for sale. (Isn't the internet great?)
If I had $1.2 million laying around, I would buy this home in a HEARTBEAT. The owners restored the home and it is breathtaking! It's just how I imagine 1850 would look but with modern plumbing and electricity.
I'm not sharing the pictures so much for the decor (although it definitely fits the house), but for the house itself. It's just breathtaking. I wouldn't change a thing, I would just move in some modern furniture mixed with antiques (just like American Modern) and call it a day.
Okay enough with the chatter, check out these pictures.
Doesn't it just make you want to put on a long dress, tie your hair up in a bun and pop out 10 kids???
And here is the crazy part - although it looks like it's out in the country, it's 5 minutes to one of my favorite shopping centers that has Home Depot, Staples Pier 1 and Starbucks. Definitely the best of both worlds.
