Potential! That’s what Emily and Hunt saw when they first opened the doors to 5322 Finsbury Place in the Sherwood Forest neighborhood. “At that time, the house was 100% carpeted, the kitchen needed a total overhaul and the curb appeal was lacking,” says the couple. “But we saw the high ceilings, wood beams, the Malm fireplace and started to get excited.”
Living their design dream
Emily and Hunt are midcentury modern enthusiasts and were looking for a place to live their design dream.
Timing was everything when the 3,171-square foot ranch on Finsbury went up for sale just as a buyer expressed interest in their home. They jumped at the chance to stay in Sherwood Forest, where they had lived since 2000, and got excited about restoring the home to MCM perfection. “We love the simple genius of the architecture, the clean lines, the high ceilings and open floor plans. We both knew we wanted to live in one of these special homes one day,” they add.
With loving care, stylish touches and modern updates, the home was transformed into a true MCM masterpiece with glossy white kitchen, sustainable bamboo floors, floor to ceiling windows and an amazing outdoor space in the private backyard.
Their hard work earned them an invitation to participate in the 2017 Mad About Modern home tour, and the home was appropriately labeled the Fun House. “That is how everyone describes our house, and how we feel about it too.”
Ready to live your MCM dream?
Now 5322 Finsbury Place is ready for its next homeowners to live their MCM dream. The four-bedroom, 3 1/2-bath house is being listed by the king and queen of mid-century modern real estate in Charlotte — Mike and Rhonda Gibbons of Savvy + Co. Real Estate.
They’ve been helping Charlotte’s contemporary and midcentury modern enthusiasts buy and sell homes for years! “The coolest thing about this ranch is, from the street, you’d never know there are vaulted ceilings everywhere. In the den, the kitchen, the master bedroom and the extra large playroom — big enough for ping-pong and a wide screen TV,” says Mike.
“We truly hope the new owners will have fun in Sherwood Forest and our house as much as we have.” says Emily and Hunt.
