As you drive through the wrought iron gate onto the estate you feel as though you have entered a bygone era. The magnificent 1903 Queen Anne Victorian estate house rises in the distance before you. This historic jewel is one of the few remaining examples of Queen Anne Victorian architecture in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area and is listed in the Department of the Interior’s Register of Historic Places. Winner of Historic Charlotte’s Preservation Award, the home was restored to its original glory in 2008.
A charming Carriage House located just a few steps away, houses the estate’s Honeymoon Suite. It is a 1,400 square foot space; private and intimate – perfect for the Bride & Groom’s First Night.

Surrounding the home and across the estate’s acreage you’ll see the many majestic 200-year-old oak trees; their canopy providing a romantic and beautiful natural-cover for this special property. The Homestead provides a wonderful and charming backdrop for your wedding or special event.
Behind the historic house and nestled under the stately oaks you’ll find the Garden Gazebo and Dairy Barn. The Gazebo is the ideal setting for an outdoor ceremony and the reconstructed Dairy Barn is an extraordinary space for an indoor ceremony or reception. Its simple barn-like exterior and “dressed up” interior accommodates up to 225 and is just perfect for your very special and elegant occasion. Your guests will enjoy seated dining with linen, china, crystal and silver service, and when the music starts there is plenty of space for dancing.
Ample parking is provided at the estate, just steps from the Gazebo and Dairy Barn.
