MOORESVILLE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--127 Thurstons Way, nicknamed The Blue Door Inn, is a four-bedroom, nine-bathroom home located in Mooresville, NC that will be sold at auction by Elite Auctions without reserve on October 21, 2017. The 11,547-square-foot estate is situated on a peninsula in Lake Norman’s most prestigious private residential development, The Point.
“The Blue Door Inn’s jaw-dropping views of the lake, custom-antique flooring, vaulted ceilings and overall grandeur are a few of the many reasons it’s known as the finest home on Lake Norman. Buyers will be impressed with the home’s design and location, which will make for an exciting auction on October 21st,” said Randy Haddaway, President and Founder of Elite Auctions. “The Blue Door Inn is the largest home in its gated community, The Point, and it offers the most amenities, including a wine cellar, a show car garage, an artist studio and two game rooms.”
The Blue Door Inn is situated on two acres of land and features a spacious front yard with lush shrubbery, native trees and colorful flowers. The home’s extended concrete driveway leads to a large white gate, which opens to a circular parking area and a two-car garage. Designed to mimic a traditional New England beach house, the home’s exterior features stone and wood cladding, a gray shingle roof and a signature sky blue front door.
Upon entering the home, guests are greeted by a formal dining room with a double-height cathedral ceiling adorned by dual crystal chandeliers. Focal points of the room include a 19th century replica fireplace flanked by two antique New England pews and an oversized floor-to-ceiling arched window offering a view of the infinity edge pool and Lake Norman.
Located off the dining room is the home’s gourmet kitchen, complete with a breakfast area with seating for six. The kitchen is equipped with stainless steel, restaurant-grade appliances, including double ovens and a gas stove with an industrial range hood. The rich hardwood floors extend from the kitchen into an adjacent family room.
The estate’s lavish first-floor master bedroom boasts high ceilings and a window-filled turret with a reading nook facing Lake Norman. The room is also equipped with electric privacy shades and built-in shelving. The equally spacious master bathroom has two vanities and a walk-in closet featuring built-in storage shelves and a packing station.
Also on the first floor is an attached, four-car gallery designed with antique tin ceilings and floors. The area doubles as a functional entertainment room.
In the basement of the home, a custom 1,500-bottle wine cellar was designed with built-in walnut shelves and cork flooring for climate control. An adjacent private tasting room features European-finished stucco walls and antique lighting.
The home’s second floor features three-bedroom suites with vaulted ceilings, a children’s bunk room with two stacked beds, a screening room and a fitness center. Additional living and entertaining areas at The Blue Door Inn include a billiards room, a shuffle board room and an art studio.
The home’s resort-style backyard offers 650 feet of shoreline and offers a large entertaining and lounging space. A luxurious, salt water infinity pool is the centerpiece of the backyard and includes an electric cover and an integrated 12-person hot tub. A generous seating area next to the pool features a three-story stone fireplace. The home’s boat dock is equipped with a boat lift with room for three water crafts.
The Blue Door Inn is in Mooresville, North Carolina, which is widely known as “Race City USA” because of the NASCAR celebrities, race team shops, auto racing manufacturers and the North Carolina Auto Racing Hall of Fame that call the city home. The estate’s prestigious gated community, The Point, offers various activities, including the Trump National Golf Club, which was designed by pro golfer Greg Norman and features a lakefront ballroom, a racquet club, a playground, a pool with a two-story waterslide and a lakeside boardwalk. The Charlotte Douglas International Airport, Lake Norman Airpark and Concord Regional Airport are located within one hour of the home.
