April 19, 2018

Oh my! Those stairs! I am shocked this is still standing. Located in Charlotte, NC. This home used to be on a 15 acre tract, it is now on one acre. Housing developments have slowly been encroaching on it. Happy to say it is now a designated historic landmark! Whomever purchases this will receive tax credits due to that. Some of you may be shocked at the price, considering the work needed, but that is Charlotte!! That land value where it sits is pretty high. Built in 1938. Six bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 5,612 square feet. $1,495,000

From the Zillow listing:


Designed by Martin Boyer and completed in 1938, the Barnhardt-Cramer House is a stunning, distinct and sophisticated example of revivalist design. Located in Midwood, less than a mile from Charlotte CC, this is a designated historic landmark (#32258-837) and sits on 1.05 ac, as the centerpiece of the new Cramer’s Pond development. The property is currently owned by the Char-Meck Historic Landmarks Commission. Quality of construction and craftsmanship must be seen to be appreciated. This historic gem is ready for that special buyer who appreciates a 1930s estate like nothing else in the city, and is able to make the appropriate restoration/improvements. Property is being sold AS-IS; repairs/renovations – many cosmetic – are needed. Home boasts 5+ large bedrooms, 4+ baths, 5612 HLA, and a massive walk-up attic that can be finished off. Multiple outdoor spaces, including a covered, 2nd floor porch offer endless possibilities. Buyer will have 50% property tax credits as HLC landmark!
