An Exclusive Look Inside The “Mullet House”

CHARLOTTE, NC. — Business in the front, party in the back, welcome to the “mullet house.”

“I knew it was a very different house, but for a house and it when it got the nickname the mullet house. I mean, people in my office were walking up to me and go, Mickey, that mullet house is really cool,” says real estate broker Mickey Gold.

This charming cottage on Merriman Avenue is just the beginning of this 2,481 square foot, 4 bed, two-bathroom house.

“The back is all glass; this is the kitchen which is wide-open to the living room on a cement floor. This is the wow part of the house.”

The house was built in the 1940s and was renovated in 2017. The original house only about 1,000 square feet, says Gold. An Australian architect designed the modern addition—the house-made for function with features like barn doors and minimalistic design. The home was rented during covid then the owners put it on the market.

“Within three hours of listing it, we had nine appointments and had it sold.”

Gold says he expects to see more architectural differences like this one as Charlotte continues to grow.
“The city is not growing organically; it’s growing from people coming into the city, and because it’s going that way, you’re getting a lot of different tastes.”
