Soaring atop Lake Norman amid the serenity of seven lush acres, 125 Quiet Waters Drive represents the pinnacle of modern lakeside luxury in the Carolinas—all less than 40 miles from Charlotte with the entirety of the Piedmont Crescent in convenient reach.
Completed in 2017 by Kearey Builders, this all-encompassing country estate is entered via a 600-foot-long drive, guarded by a fully automated gated entry with illuminated monuments and a call box system. A circular motor court reveals the main residence, clad in hard stucco with accents of Tennessee and Elk River stone. With 8,834 square feet of living space alone, the home abounds with inspired spaces to rest, focus, and gather, each spectacularly framed by the home’s breathtaking surroundings.
A magnificent 13,500 square feet under a single roof have afforded a rare canvas for relaxed living on a monumental scale. The home’s grand interiors, conceived by Susan Kromer Design, strike a sophisticated yet approachable harmony of excess and restraint. An elevator connects the three main floors, from the lower level with its duo of guest suites and conditioned glass-walled wine room to the upstairs private area. A chef’s kitchen showcases custom, locally crafted sapele wood cabinets, an eight-burner Lacanche range with a sapele hood, a Sub-Zero fridge, and Caesarstone perimeter countertops. Terraces and loggia are outfitted with custom planters, porcelain tile decking, recessed speakers, and ceiling fans. Design considerations are as thoughtful as they are stunning: Consider the pool-adjacent bathroom on the lower level, with its statement fish fossil granite vanity. Top-of-the-line systems, and home automation by Savant, ensure the entire house operates smoothly and efficiently.
The property boasts extensive frontage and truly unbeatable amenities inside and out. A saltwater pool, fully automated and illuminated for all-hours swimming, features a 54-foot infinity edge, 7-by-15-foot ledge with bubblers, and an adjacent 6-by-13-foot spa. All are embraced by a resort-like terraced patio—an outdoor entertainer’s dream—with landscape speakers, a gas fire pit, and a surrounding built-in stone sofa. Beyond 620 feet of formed concrete block seawall lies a fixed pier and dock. A shingle-roofed boathouse, architecturally congruent with the home, is a fully outfitted base for aquatic recreation in all its forms. You’ll find a 30-by-12-foot boat slip, lifts for personal watercraft and boats up to 10,000 pounds, along with ample storage. Attached garage space for three vehicles, finished with epoxy floors, carpeted landings, and 220V power, caters to the terrestrial fleet.
