Hear our daily briefing:
Kris Carroll of Charlotte said he could not have chosen a better North Carolina mountain home for his family than the one he closed on for a record $ 6.8 million on January 3rd.
The home at 264 Skycliff Drive in the gated Wildcat Cliffs community offers “amazing” 360-degree mountain views, Carroll told The Charlotte Observer Tuesday. He has loved the mountains since his undergraduate days at Virginia Tech University in Blacksburg, he said.
Wildcat Cliffs is located off Town Mountain Road in northern Asheville, 3 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway and about 210 miles northwest of downtown Charlotte.
“It’s a really amazing property with a great view,” he said.
At 7,436 square feet, the home is also spacious enough for Carroll and his wife, his three children and three stepchildren and perhaps his parents, he said.
That sales were the highest ever for a home in Asheville zip code 28804, according to real estate firm Beverly-Hanks.
The average home sales price in zip code 28804 is $ 627,500, according to Realtor.com.
The Beverly-Hanks unveiled the sale in a Jan. 4 deal news releasewithout revealing the name of the buyer. The Observer found Carroll’s name through public records.
Renée Miller, real estate agent for Beverly-Hanks’ office in Biltmore Park, represented the buyers.
In the release, Miller said buyers initially wanted 50-plus acres to build a private property with three or four homes for their family, “so we looked at large areas and large houses on land.”
Carroll, 46, was CEO of Carroll Financial in Charlotte until the firm came into being Wealth Enhancement Group last month. He is now the CEO of Carolinas of the Financial Planner, he said.
Carroll said he has lived in Charlotte since he was 4. He was born in Tennessee, where his father served in the military, he said.
The family encourages Carroll’s parents to sell their home near Blowing Rock and move in with him, he said.
Aside from a room on the second floor above the garage, the home is one-story, he said. It will make it easier for his parents – and his wife’s parents when they visit – to get around, Carroll said.
The 4.55-acre property includes “flat grassland,” he said.
Grand salon, other features
The four-bedroom house includes a magnificent living room with fireplace; a bar made of semi-precious marble; a cinema; thermally heated Italian wood-look tiles; and Italian porcelain countertops, according to their previous listing on the Canopy MLS, where real estate agents in the Charlotte area show most properties for sale.
An outdoor terrace includes a stone fireplace, and the exterior of the house includes Turkish and Portuguese limestone elements.
