Things we love about this property crush:

This beauty of a bungalow in Charlotte’s hip NoDa historic arts district surprises and delights from the moment you walk in. With a wide front porch that’s practically built for outdoor living, it’s no wonder that “porching” has become a verb in the South.

Inside, each room is more impressive than the last. The living space is a bibliophile’s dream with built-in bookshelves and rich hardwood flooring. The kitchen features custom cabinets, green marble countertops, and glass-tiled backsplash. It’s clear that no detail has been spared with high-end modern bathrooms, and a massive custom closet that’s large enough for two windows, a ceiling fan—and an entire bed if you so desire.

The fully-landscaped backyard boasts a covered plank deck and a totally unique circular patio, centered around a fire pit.

Big bonus: There’s a smartly-designed one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest home on the lot that’s tricked out with high ceilings, travertine floors, an efficiency kitchen, and rooftop terrace.
