A secluded 9-acre south Charlotte estate will soon become a gated community of homes spanning more than 5,000 square feet.
Grandfather Homes announced this week that they’ll be building 7 new houses on the property near Providence High — with prices starting at $1.6 million.
The original home, built by the Litaker family in the 1970s, will remain at its center.
The new homes will be built in a similar style.

The original home will be renovated and sold as well.
Each home will be on more than 1 acre.
Buyers will also get a $150,000 “outdoor living allowance.” Grandfather Homes is currently speaking with interested buyers.
