Southern-Style Elegance: A Family-Friendly North Carolina Estate

This elegant residence that would be right at home in the English countryside is located within the upscale Teeter Farms Estates neighborhood outside of Mooresville, North Carolina. A 30-minute drive north of Charlotte, Mooresville is a bustling, family-oriented town with a population of 50,000 people and a Southern-style, laid-back atmosphere.

One of the largest homes in the community, this two-story, 7,571-square-foot stone-and-brick home has five bedrooms and 6 1/2 bathrooms and is a traditionally styled residence well suited to a large family. The large, manicured 3.3-acre lot bordered by mature trees provides plenty of room to play touch football on the sprawling lawn, as well as ensuring a sense of privacy for the occupants. A winding driveway leads to the home, where a fountain burbles alongside the path leading to the double-entry doors tastefully accented with wrought iron.

The family room features a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows that bring in natural light while providing a great view of the surroundings. (Charlotte Virtual Home Tours/Premier Sotheby’s International Realty)

Inside, the living room features a fireplace, built-in bookshelves, decorative pillars, marble flooring, a very attractive chandelier, and extensive crown moldings. Opposite, a seating area backs up to the kitchen, which is equipped with stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets, and an expansive island/breakfast bar, with an adjacent dining area set into a cozy alcove.

The oversized first-level master bedroom has large windows and glass doors for a clear view of the surroundings, and a cavernous walk-in closet complete with shoe and apparel organizers and even a couch. The master bathroom is equipped with dual vanities, a soaking tub, and a fieldstone-lined walk-in shower.

The upstairs bedrooms have vaulted ceilings, generously sized windows, and private bathrooms. One room is used as an office. Another is used as a gym, with a pool table for use between sets.

At the rear of the home is a screened porch equipped with a fireplace and a sauna, with an outdoor patio beyond, where an outdoor kitchen is sheltered by a gazebo.

The detached two-story carriage house adjacent to the main residence features a two-car garage on the ground level, with a well-equipped one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment on the second level.
