CHARLOTTE, N.C. (July 31, 2020) — The private residence of Rack Room Shoes President and CEO Mark Lardie and retired footwear industry executive Meredith Lardie has entered the market for $3.6 million. The stunning French Renaissance estate is a true work of art, from its unique architecture to the collection of artisanal designs that adorn the floors, walls and ceilings. Located at 1001 Colville Road, the home is marketed exclusively by Jessica Grier of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s Charlotte office; view details here.

Designed by Greg Perry and built by Grandfather Homes, the stunning residence features five bedrooms and six baths. A stately foyer welcomes guests to an elegant floor plan that showcases the Lardies’ collection of art and custom décor. A grand family room is appointed with one of the home’s four masonry fireplaces, as well as access to a picturesque outdoor living area. An incredible chef’s kitchen is crafted with Thermador appliances, custom cabinetry, marble countertops, a Kohler Whitehaven farm sink and office area. A walk-through pantry is adorned with marble and accent tile; the scullery closes off as a catering kitchen complete with a second dishwasher, cooler and ice maker. An exquisite dining room, with Jonathan Adler lighting and a hand-painted art wall, seats 12 guests.

The first-floor owner’s suite is a sprawling retreat, with a vaulted ceiling, custom walk-through closet, custom-built apothecary cabinets and morning bar with Sub-Zero beverage cooler. Marble wall tile frames the owner’s bath, which offers an Enclave shower and oversized soaking tub.

A dramatic staircase leads to the second level, featuring a stenciled accent wall and custom shelving to display art and books. Three spacious en-suite bedrooms are designed with walk-in closets, and a laundry room has extra storage space.

An expansive lower level offers an abundance of recreational and entertainment options: family room with travertine tile; kitchenette with full-size refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher; home theater with 110-inch screen and Ultra 4k projector; craft room/classroom; exercise room; powder room; wine storage; fifth en-suite bedroom; and utility storage space.

Outdoor living is framed by extravagant landscaping, elite bluestone pavers, custom privacy fence and a multi-zone irrigation system. An open-air living room boasts a cedar ceiling, custom-louvered shutters and fireplace with 65-inch TV. The masonry-built summer kitchen has a 36-inch gas grill and beverage cooler. A heated saltwater pool and spa with water feature is enhanced by ambient lighting. The all-brick home has a cedar shake roof and two-car garage with spacious storage.

“This architectural gem is among Charlotte’s most impressive properties, offering the finest features and modern amenities," said Jessica Grier. "From its jaw-dropping marble floor inlay to an array of hand-painted accents, its unique artistry will appeal to a buyer of the finest taste.”
