The green flag is waving and the race has started to be the next owner of a NASCAR star’s 140-acre estate in the Charlotte area.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. listed his property at 355 Pelham Lane in Mooresville, North Carolina for $16 million, the Charlotte Business Journal reported. Various property items point towards the driver, as does the entity that owns the property: Slide Job LLC. The limited liability company purchased the property in 2013 for $3.8 million.
The rural equestrian estate contains a 10,000-square-foot home with five bedrooms, six bathrooms and two half-bathrooms. Features inside the home include a game room and theater, while the exterior include a vanishing-edge pool, a cabana and a putting green.
The grounds also have a horse stable that spans 5,500 square feet and 18 stalls, as well as an enclosed arena and a viewing area. The grounds also include a fitness training facility and detached garages.
There’s room to add more homes on the property as long as a buyer is willing to work with Rowan County. The listing is held by Corcoran HM Properties’ Josh Tucker and Heather Gibbs.
The asking price dwarfs other listings in the Charlotte area, at more than double the next-closest single-family home in the Canopy MLS. That title is held by a $7 million home in Mooresville with Lake Norman frontage.
Stenhouse, 34, has been a driver in NASCAR’s top circuit for a number of years, winning several victories in his career. He’s struggled this season, though, recording only five top 10 finishes and likely to finish outside the playoff field.
Stenhouse is arguably known as much for his love life and his NASCAR career. The driver dated another competitor, Danica Patrick, for five years beginning in 2012 before they broke things off in 2017.
