Historic Colonial Home in the Heart of Charlotte, North Carolina

This colonial home was designed after Christiana Campbell’s Tavern in Williamsburg Virginia. Jerry Williams, a well-known architect in Williamsburg, helped design the home after the tavern. The home was constructed in 1978 by Hubert Whitlock and took about two and a half years to build.  Many of the components of the home were transferred from Suffolk, VA where it was originally built in the late 1600s.

Brick in the kitchen is very unique, it came from the ballast of a ship that sailed from England to Charleston in the 1600s.

Flooring is heart of pine and is hand hewed,  tongue and groove.  The sellers took apart the floor in the Virginia house, labeled each piece with a number and then put it back together as they built their Carmel Estates home.

Exterior wood is black cypress with beadboard and the cherry paneled den is designed after the Raleigh Tavern Bakery in Williamsburg, Va. Corner boards and beams were pieced together with pegs. 

The home has 5 hand made brick fireplaces, gracious formal living areas, and a beautifully renovated master bathroom.

For those with a green thumb, a greenhouse sits at the back of the house. The lower level includes a full kitchen, bonus room, bedroom, and bath. The home backs up to Carmel Country Clubs 8th fairway of the South Course.
