If anyone remembers this post, you may know that looking at houses is a little thing that Ryan & I like to do. We currently live in his condo (when I’m here for rotations, that is) and it’s a one bedroom/one bath in uptown Charlotte. I absolutely love living uptown. Walking to dozens of restaurants & bars. Having a movie theater a few blocks away. Being able to just go for a run throughout the city whenever I want. One day, when yours truly finally gets a job, we will definitely move on up to a bigger place. Let’s face it… this girl’s got a lot of stuff! With our love for center city life, we are always on the lookout for new places to check out and are constantly making a list of what we want or don’t want in a future home.
There was an open house at Skye Condos so Ryan & I decided to check it out. This is a new building with a rooftop restaurant, Fahrenheit. You may remember it from my birthday post. We had looked at some of their units a few months ago, but they were still empty or under construction. I always like to look at rooms that are staged- it helps me to visualize floor plans and how a place would feel if someone was actually living there. We decided to look at a few 2 bedrooms so for all my Charlotte readers who ever wondered what these places looked like inside… here you go!
Most of the floor plans are very open. Kitchen flows into an open dining room & living room. This particular unit is very large and faces away from the city (still a great view). The units facing the city are substantially smaller.
Love the dark cabinets contrasting with the light granite countertops. The big bar top area is nice and more storage room is always a plus! Behind the door is a very large laundry room with more storage and a sink. You can also see a glimpse of the guest bedroom (I’m mad I didn’t get any photos of that one).
The master bedroom. All I can say is wow! This room is massive- plenty of room for that king bed and much more. I especially love the tray ceiling and the balcony access, and the balconies on these places are huge. Plenty of room for full size tables & entertaining.
Quite the luxurious bathroom. I love the tub & shower combo… this girl loves her baths. The closet is connected to the bath.
Big windows & natural light- my favorite part!
Does anyone else out there like going to open houses as much as I do? Hope you enjoyed this little tour of Skye Condos and hope y’all have a great Thursday 🙂
