Christian McCaffrey is no stranger to breaking records. The former Carolina Panther, who was traded to the San Francisco 49ers last year, is the only running back in NFL history to finish two seasons with 100-plus receptions, among other impressive stats. Following the transfer to his new team, the star athlete is putting his Uptown Charlotte, North Carolina, penthouse back on the market for $3.75 million, making it the priciest condo per-square-foot in the city’s history if it fetches anywhere near its asking price.
Although unconfirmed, listing history implies that McCaffrey maintains a $7.5 million French Chateau-inspired North Carolina mansion that also broke a record when it became the overall most expensive sale in the Charlotte area in 2020.
The contemporary two-story dwelling that the sportsman is looking to offload will land on the market on March 24 and offers three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths across 3,813 square-feet, plus two roughly 200-square-foot terraces. An open-plan great room boasts 25-foot-tall ceilings and oversized windows, plus an eat-in chef’s kitchen and an industrial-style glass and steel staircase leading to an upstairs primary suite. The unit comes with furnishings from Restoration Hardware, including an extra long cloud-like ivory sectional in the main living space.
“To me, this penthouse was more than a home. It allowed me to feel a part of the city that I love so much every time I look out the window,” McCaffrey said in a press release. “You can’t find a better layout for a condo anywhere in Charlotte. It’s a home with so much character, and I’m so excited to pass along such an amazing home to the next owner.”
Victoria Speer of Ivester Jackson Christie’s International Real Estate holds the listing for the unit, which is on the 22nd floor of a high-rise building with a street address of 222, matching McCaffrey’s Panther jersey number 22.
