Two-Time NASCAR Cup Series Champ Kyle Busch Lists $13M NC Mansion
The lavish spread comes fully equipped, even featuring a private beach.
Livin’ la vida Rowdy!
After gazing upon NASCAR superstar Kyle Busch’s home in Denver, North Carolina, you might find John Hamond’s iconic Jurassic Park line “Spared no expense” becomes a looping ear worm that just won’t go away.
Featuring tasteful yet lavish trappings, the two-time Cup Series champion’s regal lakefront digs has it all, minus a genetically created dino disaster, of course. Gym? Check. Heated pool with swim-up bar and boat dock with an electronic lift? Check and check. Then there’s the private beach. Not too shabby, right?
Well, if the sight of Busch’s pad kicks your engine into high gear, it’s time to stop looking and think about owning. That’s right, according to Front Office Sports, now you too could live like NASCAR royalty because Richard Childress Racing’s Hall of Fame-bound wheelman from Las Vegas, Nevada has officially listed his estate for just under $13 million.
Coming in at 15,000 square feet in the gated community of Norman Estates, Chateau de Busch sits on 1.3 acres at the end of Unity Church Road in the heart of Lake Norman – a prestigious freshwater retreat for Charlotte’s upper echelon who reside 25 miles away in the city. Boasting 180-degree views of the sparkling, cerulean blue water, floor-to-ceiling stone fireplaces and custom curling staircases, the premier property’s Game of Thrones vibes are perfect for your next pool party bonanza or Renaissance ball, your choice. With seven bedrooms and eight full bathrooms, why not both!
Want to beat Bobby Flay at his own game from the comfort of your home? Check out the phenomenal, Michelin-star chef worthy cook space. Since Busch purchased the estate in 2012 for $7.5 million, the couple tackled a massive kitchen renovation. Costing around $1 million, the impressive kitchen now features not one but two marble waterfall islands, a black Dacor stainless steel range, Miele appliances and intuitive sensor-touch cabinets to make life in the galley just a little bit easier, according to the listing from Corcoran HM Properties, which is handling the sale. And if you like vino, you’re in luck. The home also includes an impressive wine cellar to ensure a dizzying amount of bottles are kept right at the perfect temperature.
Heather Gibbs of Corcoran HM Properties told the Charlotte Observer that, “The owners are just ready to move elsewhere after living in the home for so long.”
So, where are Busch and his wife Samantha moving to with their two children? Good question, but one can only hope that Rowdy, who sits in third overall, thanks to his three wins and 12 top-10 finishes, doesn’t get sidetracked with house hunting in the rapidly approaching and most pivotal part of the year: the Cup Series playoffs. Rowdy’s chasing his third career championship – he ain’t got time for Zillow! Luckily, there will be no shortage of realtors lining up to help the driver of the No. 8 Chevy Camaro find a new abode to unwind in after a hard-fought race.
