ON THE MARKET

Modern Extraordinary Home Charlotte, North Carolina T

his extraordinary abode in Charlotte, North Carolina was designed by Architect, W. Stanley Russell from the inside out with particular attention paid to the development of an incredible interior space which is both spacious and inviting and gives form to a twenty-first century house while respecting its mid-twentieth century neighborhood. The residence was conceived as a one and one-half story, brick and cedar structure which presents an appropriately low scale that is at home in a community characterized by rolling, wooded topography with winding streets within minutes of the Charlotte Douglas International airport shopping and restaurants. Unique details including the stairs, vaulted maple ceilings, generous room sizes with a mix of window shapes and sizes, and various high end finishes that make for an extraordinary home to entertain. Natural materials - brick, wood, and granite - were extensively utilized to provide a visual and tactile warmth and to present a strong, visual connection to nature. The subtlety of the design, along with the many custom details, provide a layering of experiences that unfold over time. The extensive use of glass, along with wide and properly positioned roof overhangs creates spaces that are animated by the sun and that continually change during the day and throughout the seasons.

The spacious owners suite with spa-like bathroom are just a few features that make this home incredible. The rear lawn leads to a separate guest house with two bedrooms and full bathroom attached to double car garage. This magnificent home is ready for its new owners. ■

Worlds Most Desirable

PRICELESS LUXURY

Kona Coast Private Peninsula Turn to page 24 to view this Compound The Pacific Ocean surrounds this serene private property in Hawaii, which opens a world to a secret paradise accessible only by a hidden road. Restored for a decade and now for sale after years of family ownership, this village-like compound with a primary residence and four additional architecturally connected structures proves its value through beauty and views. Look out at the waters to spot dolphins passing by, and by evening, you’ll see the moon emerge from the glowing sky.

Pink Star Diamond, $71.2 Million Pink diamonds are some of the world’s rarest. This stone, mined in 1999, gets its value from its size, “Fancy Vivid” shade, and the 20-month cutting process behind its appearance. Over the years, it has been displayed at the Smithsonian and auctioned in 2013 and 2017, with the latter in Hong Kong, where the stone sold to Chow Tai Fook Enterprises.

Most Expensive Digital Art: Beeple, Everydays: The First 5000 Days, $69 Million Beeple, to some extent, has a career mirroring Basquiat’s. Prints of his, until recently, have sold for no more than $100, but through a growing online following and use of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), his Everydays: The First 5000 Days sold for $69 million through Christie’s. A composite of Beeple’s drawings, Everydays is the first fully digital artwork sold by an auction house.

Most Expensive Car: 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO, $70 Million In the present, we associate luxury cars with bespoke features. Yet, as the 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO has proven over the decades, rarity has just as much clout. From 1962 through 1964, only 36 models were produced, and during those early years, this Ferrari model developed a reputation for its sporty luxury and prowess on the racetrack. Demand began to pick up in the 1980s: During that era, designer Ralph Lauren purchased one for $650,000. Continuing to climb in value, one sold at auction for $70 million in 2018.

Hope Diamond, $200 to $350 million One of the world’s most well-known jewels, the origins of the Hope Diamond extend back four centuries, originating from Kollur Mine in India and with a first record of purchase in 1666. Along the way, it passed through several hands, including King Louis XIV, socialite Evalyn Walsh McLean, and has resided at the National Museum of Natural History since 1958.
