The exterior of the classic Colonial-style home, named “The Belvedere,” reads traditional, but the interior looks like a modern art gallery.

The historic home, built in 1951 for Charlotte builder and developer John Crosland Jr. and current home to artist Stephen Wilson, is the most expensive listing on record for Plaza Midwood.

Wilson said he’s going to miss the yard the most, with its manicured lawn, winding paths and tree-lined driveway. “Every time you look out the huge windows, it’s like you’re looking at a park,” Wilson told me.

  • There’s a level of privacy you might not expect 2 miles from Uptown, he added.

The exact address is 3021 Belvedere Ave. At 4,381 square feet, it has 4 beds and 4.5 baths.

Design: The 1950s home was restored in 2010 to blend some of the original architecture with more contemporary design. From the pink painted brick sunroom to the vaulted bright chef’s kitchen with a butterfly installation, artful features pop against the classic, neutral backdrop.

Wilson said when he and his wife bought the home in 2015, the interior was really traditional (think burgundy walls and fox paintings). They loved the bones, though, so they freshened it up with white paint and layered in art, colorful rugs, etc.

Highlights: Thoughtful landscaping, large bedrooms, dreamy kitchen, wet bar, formal dining room, modern light fixtures, original architectural details, two-story columned front porch.

Outdoor living: The house is on 1.3 acres of land with a pool, 426-square-foot guest cottage, pergola-covered terrace and an English garden.
