14036 Claysparrow Rd …Luxury Home at The Sanctuary, Charlotte NC

pool-detail-1Tranquility, vacation at home, peacefulness… I’ve written about the Sanctuary for years, most recently  The Sanctuary in Charlotte , but also here and here. All the amenities are complete at The Sanctuary, and management of the Homeowners Association has been turned over to the homeowners- and what amenities!!!  A terrific swimming pool, lighted tennis courts, day docks, more than 20 miles of walking trails on a 1300 acre wooded site- that’s 1.5 times larger than Central park in new York City!  and, since they are all in,  no worries about a “developer not making it.”

14036 Clay Sparrow Lane, Charlotte NC 28278 …True Luxury at The Sanctuary! See Virtual Tour

Up to 7 bedrooms on 3 levels, 5 full baths, a 4 car garage, a perfect mother-in-law suite, or- as the current owners use it:  a guest room, large open exercise room, a big game room, and downstairs kitchen with food and snacks  for the pool. It’ s over 8000 SF of heated living area according to its most current measurement and nearly 10,000 under roof, 10’ceilings and 8′ doors, a kitchen with state of the art appliances, cabinet space galore and a huge island.

Built by Howie Construction, a well-regarded local builder known for quality construction,  the homeowners began in 2007 where the builder left off…

Investing for the long run they built a beautiful pebble-bottom  swimming pool, and they cleared, landscaped and sodded acres of lawn. They installed a whole house sound system, and improved an already impressive kitchen with Thermidoor’s top of the line refrigerator freezer and a “island expansion!”  I like the two drawer dishwasher, the copper sinks and hood and self -closing doors.  Form meets function in an elegant design-it is a working kitchen that looks gorgeous.


This luxury home on 3.86 acres is just 25 easy minutes to Uptown Charlotte, or 20 minutes to Charlotte’s terrific airport.

Offered realistically at $1,795,000… the sellers understand the economics of this market.

Have a look at the pictures, then either call me to schedule a showing-or email your question to Terry (at)  Showing are by appointment only.  One of our Buyer Agents will show you the home as we do not practice individual dual agency- 704-351-1519
