Dustin Alsop new proud owner of the beautiful Fourth Ward Victorian PURE listing

A Special “Thank You” from a Non-client & Recent Buyer of a PURE Real Estate home listing “The Pink House”, a historic home in Charlotte, NC.


Hey Jodi,

I wanted to send you a special thanks for all your help along the way.

I’ve purchased several investment properties and have interacted with many residential agents/brokers over the years.  You are very simply the best I’ve come across.  I don’t mean to be critical of the industry, but in my experience, I’ve noticed that many selling agents don’t understand that it actually helps them sell the house when they are responsive to the buyers questions and due diligence on the property.  You’re definitely a cut above and I definitely would like to stay in touch going forward.

Good luck, and if I can ever be of assistance to you in any way, please let me know.

Thanks again,



Congratulations on your new house, Dustin! We hope you enjoy.

The Historic Torrance House (aka The Pink House) – 424 N. Poplar Street, Charlotte, NC

This beautiful historic and iconic home has just hit the market. Here we have a letter from the seller describing the home and its extended history:

“Welcome to our home. The Pink House sits in the 4thWard of Charlotte, NC. This neighborhood was gentrified in the late 1970’s/early 1980’s. A mission of the Junior League of Charlotte back then, the neighborhood revitalization effort was revived by the Bank of America in the 1990’s as part of Hugh McColl’s vision for the uptown area.

There are 27 Victorian homes in the 4th Ward, but only a few of them are original to the site. 424 N. Poplar Street—in some form—is original. Our lot was once 100’ by 100’; our well is located Pink House copyunder the foundation pilings of 428 N. Poplar.  The history of this house, as related by Mr. Gene LeGrand, dates to post-Civil War Charlotte. The property came into his family in 1898, when it was purchased out of foreclosure by Capt. Richard Torrance, CSA, who also owned Cedar Grove Plantation, next to Latta Plantation, in the Mountain Island Lake area. Capt. Torrance, injured in the war and unable to maintain the large plantation, moved to a house in Charlotte where the Jefferson Condominiums now sit at N. Church and W. 7th streets. He bought this property for his mother and his sister. At that time, there were about six houses on the block, three on N. Church and three on N. Poplar. The home remained in Mr. LeGrand’s family until he sold it in 1948.

The property was purchased by the Knight’s in the late 1970’s and was stripped down to the frame. Wiring and plumbing were replaced and the house was reconstructed with modern updates. Old mill work and doors were gleaned from other period properties and installed here. During some renovations, we uncovered a board that noted that the front door is from a home in Lexington, NC.  The rare oval beveled glass window is irreplaceable. (We have always told the firemen at Engine 4 to knock out any other window in the house in the event of a catastrophe, but PLEASE not the front door window!) Forest Lorick bought the house from the Knight’s. My brother bought the house in 1996. After he went to Chicago, he sold it to Jim and me.

We moved here in 2000 and began a systematic renovation.  We replaced the silver tin roof with a teal 50-year  Pro-Panel roof in 2004, old windows were replaced with Kolbe double hung windows in 2005. The wood windows have an aluminum clad exterior that matches the green roof and were selected for ease of maintenance and to minimize trim painting. We updated the powder room and an upstairs bathroom with tile and modern fixtures. We restored the kitchen cabinets to the original Cheerwine red the Knights used during the 1980’s renovation. We replaced the front porch deck with treated lumber (to satisfy the Historic District Commission) in 2001, the consumption porch deck in 2008 and the back deck in 2009—both with Trex. We installed a patio to replace the old, much larger back deck that we removed.
