Martha's Cul-de-sacs headed for Charlotte

Recommended Posts


Certainly this will be built outside of Charlotte's city limits...the crime is way to high here to appeal to the potential buyers.....oh wait, maybe that's part of the new image Martha is selling.

Federal prison must have given her a newfound understanding of the criminal mind, and she is now comfortable enough to enter such a dangerous market.

Drive-bys are so hard to do with a mini-van on a cul-de-sac.

nah, they won't go by SouthPark as there is not enough land to build a big new subdivision around there. They will likely go somewhere across the border in Union County but I'm just guessing.

I agree

Do any of you actually watch Martha Stewart? I do and I think she's cool. It's going to be a pretty ordinary subdivsion from what I can tell, but who's to say she can't make some money of suburbia like anyone else.

I watched a couple of her Apprentices. They sure were kind of nutty.

It sounds like it is a good idea from a business perspective. I'm sure the designs are slightly better than most suburban prototypes, especially on the inside.

It is just the thought of hundreds or thousands of these 3 designs being littered all over an old farm is depressing.

It is pretty sad in that regard. We're going to have to change the suburban nature of this nation to fix issues like that though.

My wife has a sign in our den saying Martha Stewart does not live here.

I do not like garage doors as part of the front of the house. It should be in the back.

In the old days they did not house their horses in the front of their house.

You would have to be careful, because someone many pull up to have their car repaired.

I do have to admit though, that I do agree with Steven and Martha Stewart is a cool lady. Her show does teach neat tricks and tips... and i'll also have to admit that I've made a couple of her recipes... successfully! Plus her Kmart products aren't half bad.

Trump called her a moron because of her blaming of her show's performance on him. LOL.

The designs are a certainly bit better than most of the vinyl McHouses, but repeated hundreds of times it will have the same effect.

I love Martha Stewart....but I guess that's no surprise.

My friends even call me Martha Stewart minus the record and attitude. :lol:

I remember when I used her idea for a cranberry wreath. It turned out perfect....and that was years ago. I have been a fan every since. The houses....well....Martha, Martha, Martha.....sweetie please don't go so mainstream. I'm not a big fan of front facing garages. Oddly enough though she will sell alot of them. They remind me of Centex homes.

Front loaded garages don't bother me that much, but they should not make up such a prominent part of the house as these do. Sadly, there are much better subdivision designs going up these days in this price range (i.e. alleys, garages hidden in back alleys, big front porches) but these seem to be going back to the 70's mentality of housing. I really wish the Charlotte city council would adopt some restrictions that would prevent this kind of stuff from being thrown up.

Martha must have overdosed on the movie Polyester when she came up with these designs.

Martha was on The Today Show showing off her 650 home development in Cary. I am no fan of hers but the houses look nice. The one she showed were somewhat like a bungalow with added features like big closets, granite countertops, samped concrete, etc. Now I know that you can get these with other developments but I wonder how these houses price against other developments? Seem to compare somewhat. (low $200K-->$500K)

I don't think the houses looked out of place. They actually looked like new Bungalow
