Description

This 100+ year old charmer with modern amenities is located in the History Rich & Highly Sought after, McCrorey Heights neighborhood, in Charlotte, NC. Not only has this house been featured with a full history detail, but almost all of the homes in this neighborhood have been researched to great extent by the retired Historian from “The Museum of the New South”, Tom Hanchett. Tom made McCrorey Heights his “pet project” in retirement and fell in love with its amazingly deep roots and impact that its residents had in Charlotte and Nationally, during the civil rights movement and even before.

More information about the impact this home’s residents had in this area and beyond can be found here:  https://mccrorey.historysouth.org/1923-oaklawn-avenue/

In 2009, the current owner upfitted the home with all new wiring, plumbing, HVAC, tankless H2O, added a deck, fenced the yard, new roof, added extra insulation in the attic and spray foam in the crawl space (so even with 85% original plaster walls and ceilings the utility costs average about the same as any other home).  The original 4th bedroom was converted into an amazing en-suite bathroom. This space showcases an extended vanity with dual sinks, an 8 ft walk-in shower (with dual heads and body sprayers), an extra large 6′ ft jetted tub AND a custom, carpenter built, closet with a SPINNING SHOE RACK!!

The landscaping that the owner has done through the years has truly created a gardeners paradise.  So much so, that it is also an official, ”wildlife habitat”!  It showcases lush landscaping w/ multiple seating areas, a professionally hung tree swing, a fish pond and doggie door to the “doggie deck” and fenced backyard. There’s also a HUGE 12×24 shed that holds more yard gear than you’d ever need and so much more…  & has so many possibilities for other conversions…think MIL suite, a home office, or even a small airbnb rental.

The exterior was freshly painted in the Fall of 2020. The brick paver driveway & walkways add to the charm along w/ original details in the home, like the “picture hanger” moldings, 8” baseboards, the corner coal burning FP (capped and sold as is) & heart pine wood floors. A whole house “Covid killer” (and other mold/allergy/dust and dander killer) UVC air cleaner was also added in 2020.
