Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) September 19, 2016
Rashad Davis, an Advisor with Engel & Völkers South Charlotte, has been selected to exclusively represent the mid-century modern home which was architecturally designed by the famous Harvey Gantt in 1970.
Harvey Gantt has been highly recognized within the community for many leadership roles, including Charlotte City Council and former Mayor of Charlotte. Gantt was raised in Charleston, South Carolina and attended Iowa State University, Clemson University and obtained his Masters in Architecture from MIT in 1970. Gantt worked for Odell in Charlotte, NC after schooling and was the first black architect the firm ever hired. In 1971, Gantt founded Gantt Huberman in Charlotte and the company is still regarded as one of the most successful architecture firms in the state.
During the 1970’s, Hyde Park, a historic community off Beatties Ford Road in Charlotte, NC, was noted to be one of the first upper-class neighborhoods established by African Americans in the country. Harvey Gantt recognized the value of his creative talent for design and specifically drew the house plans for this amazing architectural showcase from his kitchen table, making this his first residential design of his career. 4221 LaBrea Drive became the epicenter of social life in Hyde Park and later became The Garrett Thomas (Tommy) Nash Home.
“This home is truly unique and a large part of the community’s history,” says listing broker Rashad Davis. “The significance of this property has brought new light to Hyde Park and the dream of home ownership.”
