CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
Approximately two out of every 10 families in Charlotte watched the season premiere of “The Bachelorette” Monday night.
While there was speculation of which grandiose home in the Charlotte area would play home to Charlotte’s Emily Maynard and 25 hopeful suitors, almost everyone knew it was filmed in Charlotte.
And Monday night, the city and the rest of the country watched as the bachelors pulled up to a Ballantyne home to meet Maynard.
The stage lighting is gone, but the breathtaking views remain around every corner of the home bathed in natural light and stone.
Nick Peters from Peters Associates is working to sell the home now.
Before the show, it was listed at roughly $4 million. After Monday night’s premiere, the asking price jumped by almost $2 million.
“We’ve been having to filter quite a few calls to find the real clientele and the current time we’ve been having to require proof of funds before a viewing can take place,” he said.
The house is more than 12,000 square feet. It has six bedrooms, eight and a half bathrooms, a waterfall, eight rose gardens and sits on more than five acres of land.
“The current owners, Jas-Am Construction, built the house to showcase what he could do as a builder,” Peters said.
What he built was something that will be the backdrop on a reality television love story.
Peters said producers that scouted the home were looking for something private, secure and full of character.
“This house had outdoor living, which is crucial. And the lighting; they wanted a romantic scene,” he said.
