Simonini Homes, the Carolinas’ award-winning, family-owned building and renovation company, has established a reputation for crafting classic and timeless homes. Their Southern revival project in the Foxcroft neighborhood in South Charlotte is just what you would expect from this top notch company, who teamed up with Smith Slovik and KBN Interiors to give the client exactly what they wanted.
When the client spotted another Simonini home in the same neighborhood, they recognized their vision for their own future home. As a result, they commissioned Simonini to help them make their dream a reality. The product is 6,000 square feet of a beautiful classic modern home boasting six bedrooms and six and a half baths.
An open layout characterizes the first floor. The dining room serves as the floor’s centerpiece, blending seamlessly into the living area on one side and the kitchen on the other side. The kitchen features ample countertop surfaces and a spacious island. Nearby, the living room’s focal point is a gorgeous marble fireplace, bordered by recessed shelving. Dark gray accents contrast strikingly with light beige walls and white trim.
From the dining room, the house’s outdoor entertainment areas beckon. Beneath a wide porch roof, wicker couches cluster around a stone, wood-burning fireplace. A mounted TV conjures the perfect set up for fall game days. Adjacent to the outdoor living area is an outdoor dining area, replete with table, chairs, and grill. A clear blue pool, meticulous landscaping, and careful stone work provide a gorgeous backdrop to back porch living.
Inside, a formal dining room provides a more secluded gathering space. A glittering drop chandelier elevates the ambience. On the other hand, a well-placed china chest complements the refined, deep brown aesthetic of the table and chairs. Above all, an ornamental rug ties the pieces together.
Across from the stairs to the second floor, a leisurely study awaits the studious. Dark floors and dark paneling lend austerity to the room. At the same time, they contrast pleasingly with the light beige and white prevalent throughout the first floor.
Bigger and Better
After moving into the home, the client decided they wanted a larger master suite. So, Simonini returned to perform an expansion. A sunny sitting area connected to the bedroom provides a tempting perch to spend leisurely weekend mornings. The suite incorporates the same color palette as the majority of the house—shades of gray playing off a lively white and subdued beige.
Simonini, with this Foxcroft residence, has crafted a stunning house, filled with indoor and outdoor gathering spaces where the client can convene nearly any time with family and friends.
