Star Running Back Christian McCaffrey Seeks Record Price for Charlotte Penthouse

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (March 17, 2023) – Over five and a half NFL seasons, Christian McCaffrey set at least 20 team and league records as the star running back for the Carolina Panthers. Now the former Panther, who was traded to the San Francisco 49ers midway through the 2022 season, hopes to set another record with the sale of his Charlotte penthouse.

McCaffrey recently listed the home with an asking price of $3.75 million. If it sells for close to that amount, it will be the most expensive condo ever sold in Charlotte on a per-square-foot basis, according to his real estate agent, Victoria Speer of Ivester Jackson Christie’s International Real Estate.

Located in Uptown Charlotte’s premier Skye Condominiums high-rise building, the 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath, two-story penthouse has 3,813 square-feet of indoor living area plus a large terrace with a 200-square-foot patio and similarly sized green space. Highlights include a great room with 25’ ceilings; double-height windows along two exposures; a chef’s kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a cooking island, and a separate oversized dining island; and a glass and steel architectural staircase leading to the second floor. The main-floor hallway features a barrel ceiling and a custom mural by Tampa-based artist, Michael Vahl, which depicts real-life and fictional characters that have inspired McCaffrey throughout his life.

Each of the three bedrooms includes an en-suite bath. Dual owners’ suites – one on the main level and one on the second level – also have large walk-in closets with custom organizers. The marble-clad primary bath has an oversized shower with a rain head and a freestanding soaking tub, and the upstairs bath also includes a large shower with a rain head and built-in bench, as well as a separate tub.

Building residents have access to several luxury amenities, including a rooftop pool, fitness center, 24-hour concierge, theatre room, game room, club room, and Fahrenheit, a rooftop fine-dining restaurant from chef Rocco Whalen.

The home is located on the 22nd floor of Skye Condominiums which has a street address of 222. Coincidentally, McCaffrey’s jersey number with the Panthers was 22.

In another interesting twist, the buyer pool for McCaffrey’s penthouse may have just gotten a boost after the Panthers recently acquired the #1 overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft from the Chicago Bears. The team’s next star player could very well be the next owner of this residence.

“To me, this penthouse was more than a home. It allowed me to feel a part of the city that I love so much every time I look out the window. You can’t find a better layout for a condo anywhere in Charlotte. It’s a home with so much character, and I’m so excited to pass along such an amazing home to the next owner,” said McCaffrey.

Added Speer, “The perfect buyer for this penthouse is someone who wants one-of-a-kind luxury, privacy, and proximity to all that the city has to offer.”

The home is outfitted with furniture by Restoration Hardware, which is included in the list price, along with two deeded parking spaces.
