Love history and up for a big project? One Charlotte’s hottest new listings is very old.
The historic Edward M Rozzell House hit the market this weekend, asking $299,000. The address is 11647 Rozzelles Ferry Road, Charlotte, NC 28214. It’s about a 15 – 20 minute drive from Uptown.
Built in 1881, the house has six acres, including pecan and fruit trees, and an original barn and outbuildings.
The house’s shell is sound, but come ready to work: It needs a full interior restoration. The 2,064 square foot home is 3 beds, 1 bath on 6 acres.
Broker/Realtor Eric Gamble tells me he’d love to see someone turn it into a farm-to-table restaurant. Me too, Eric. Me too.
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Historic Landmark Commission has owned the home for about a decade. You may remember a few years ago when the commission put out a public request for a temporary tenant to come in and return the property to an active produce farm.
The property is up near Mountain Island Lake and not far from Latta Plantation, an area of Mecklenburg where there are noticeable handful of undisturbed historic properties. Buyers will benefit from historic property tax deferments.
If you’re ever driven by wondered – what is that place? Maybe it’s time to take a look and start your own farmhouse project.
