It’s obvious the owners put care and detail into every inch of this gated estate on Crestbrook Drive in south Charlotte’s Cotswold neighborhood. It’s a luxury home that was made for family gatherings and entertaining. The main floor boasts several light-filled, spacious rooms, and it’s easy to imagine guests gravitating toward the outdoor living space which includes a pool and patio area.
But it’s the detatched garage that really makes this home a showstopper. The listing by Corcoran HM Properties says the garage was designed by Greg Perry and built by Ted Thompson and currently houses more than 24 vintage cars (cars do not convey). At nearly 2500 square feet, it’s fully conditioned with spray foam insulation, glass doors and an RV parking/hook up outside. It could also be used as an indoor gym, sport court, theater or as guest quarters.
Local business owner Mark Brummond is a racing and car enthusiast, who says his love of vintage cars goes back a long time. “I started my love for cars living back in Seattle in the late 70s and early 80s going over the border into Canada and seeing the old vintage Mini Coopers — and I instantly fell in love with them,” Brummond says. He primarily collects Italian and German cars, seeking out the best and most rare of certain makes and models.
It’s not just about collecting for Brummond. He also loves driving fast cars. “I started racing six years ago in vintage racing leagues in a 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV6. I became pretty good and started winning races,” he says. Brummond says he enjoys endurance series racing the most because team strategy and driver responsibility come into play. He’s participated in several competitions and won rookie of the year award in the TRANS AM series in 2020.
The home was recently listed by Corcoran HM Properties for $3.595,000.
