Quail Hollow mansion sold for record-setting $7.6M

This 18th-century-style chateau in Quail Hollow just sold for $7.6M.

Driving the news: The house, previously owned by U.S. Rep. Robert Miller Pittenger, originally hit the market for almost $8.75M in August. 

  • It was listed by Linwood Bolles and Valérie Dulude with Premier Sotheby’s International Realty.
  • A representative from Premier Sotheby wouldn’t confirm the identity of the new homeowner. The Charlotte Ledger reported that it belongs to a company controlled by Sonic Automotive CEO David Smith.

Why it matters: The purchase marks Charlotte’s most expensive sale this year.

  • Quail Hollow is one of the most expensive and exclusive neighborhoods in the region. It’s home to high-profile business leaders such as Red Ventures CEO Ric Elias, developer Peter Pappas, developer Cameron Harris and LendingTree CEO Doug Lebda. Panthers owner David Tepper owns a home in Quail Hollow, too.

Layout: At 11,000-square-foot, this house has five bedrooms, six full bathrooms and three half baths.

  • It has a marbled foyer, a grand curved staircase, an elevator, high ceilings, two laundry rooms and a four-car garage. 
  • All bedrooms boast en-suite baths, walk-in closets and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Details: The estate, sitting on more than an acre of land, also has a view of the 14th fairway of the Quail Hollow Club.

  • Additional luxury features include a 265-bottle wine cellar and a pool.
