Description

The McQuay House, located at 3200 Tuckaseegee Road, Charlotte, North Carolina 28208, was built in 1882 and is a designated Charlotte-Mecklenburg Historic Landmark with lots of historic charm but plenty of modern amenities.  Constructed by John B. McQuay for his brother Robert E. McQuay, the McQuay House is considered a folk Victorian with Queen Anne elements and was intended as a farmhouse and family home.  Although the house sits within 2.5 miles of “uptown”, Charlotte’s urban core, and is walking distance to some of the Queen City’s finest breweries and coffee shops (not to mention a local jewelry shop, barbecue joint, dog park, and the Stewart Creek and Irwin Creek Greenway), its nearly half acre lot creates a bucolic, countryside feel.  Over 140 years old, the house has been lovingly maintained by just three families.

In 2016, the McQuay House underwent a significant restoration and renovation and now boasts modern, updated wiring, plumbing, infrastructure, HVAC, security system, and metal roof, but retains beautiful architectural details including a large, covered wraparound porch, soaring 11 foot ceilings with picture rail molding, original and new hardwood floors, floor-length original front windows with weighted pulleys, and three fireplaces (one with original parlor mantel.)  The home’s two bedroom, two bathroom layout belies its spacious footprint–the airy bedrooms comfortably accommodate both bedroom and “work from home” furniture, and the two full bathrooms have been completely remodeled.  The spacious hall (guest) bathroom features an extra-large soaking tub, white subway tile wall, and a mosaic penny tile floor, while the incredible primary bedroom en suite boasts a roomy glassed-in shower with dual shower heads and attached walk-in closet with custom built-in shelving.  The lovely (and luxurious) kitchen was redone in a period-complementary style by a furniture maker/carpenter and includes a white fireclay farmhouse sink by Shaws (since 1897) and a KitchenAid gas range.  Adding to the McQuay House’s modern living appeal is a large, windowed laundry room created from a former enclosed sleeping porch (and conveniently located just off the kitchen.)

The green, flat front lawn of the McQuay House is punctuated by a hearty holly tree (believed to be over 150 years old) and towering hardwoods including oak and black walnut.  The home stays cool and comfortable in the Carolina summers–without over-reliance on air conditioning–thanks to its high ceilings and mature shade canopy.  The house sits back from the main road, and is accessed by a gravel driveway complete with parking area and turnaround.  The fenced backyard provides ample privacy, green space for pets and gardening, and a stone patio for al fresco entertaining.  A shed roof porch and attached outbuilding offer storage for a grill and yard tools.  Truly, the McQuay House offers the best of both urban and rural historic house living.  Welcome home!
