The planned house is the buzz of the season among Charlotte’s luxury homebuilders, stirring up curiosity — "Who knew there even was a vacant 4-acre lot in Myers Park?" they ask — and not a little bit of envy.
Listing agent Marilyn Hartley said this Myers Park home was supposed to be a $3.5 million home with an elevator to the second floor and basement, which was also supposed to have a wine cellar. None of those features were added to the house, though. She estimates that the new owner will spend between $700,000 and $1 million to finish the house. Still, she said, it was a good deal for the area.
Queens University of Charlotte raised $120 million in a capital campaign that ended last June, enabling it to go on a major building program that is one of the largest in the university’s 155-year history.
