Amazing staircase! Barnhardt-Cramer House, Circa 1938. One acre in Charlotte. $1,195,000

February 11, 2019

The Barnhardt-Cramer house was built in 1938 and is a designated historic landmark property. Since these pictures were taken, the home has had a new roof placed on it. This revivalist design house is located on 1.05 acres in Charlotte, North Carolina and is situated just three blocks from the Charlotte Country Club. There is no estate like this in the city of Charlotte and would make a great project for someone with the money. The buyer will have 50% property tax credits since it is a historic designated landmark. When looking at this price, consider that Charlotte real estate is priced high, and this actually seems like a reasonable price for the location and the historical value of the home. I love the way the house looks from the back with the sweeping stairs and fountain area! Six bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 5,612 square feet. $1,195,000
