We’re all born with a remarkable potential. We don’t know what our futures hold, but they are forever lovingly shaped by those who surround us.
At the core of the Earnhardt family, one woman’s energy radiates with a grace and strength that’s led to the future success of her children and grandchildren.
“Faith and family run deep in the Earnhardts, and my grandmother Martha Coleman Earnhardt, the woman we all call Mamaw E., is the reason why,” says Kerry Earnhardt. “She is the matriarch of our family and the reason why we’re all here. We named this home Carolina to honor her, because her home is, and has always been, in North Carolina. But also because she has a heart and a capacity for love that’s bigger than the state itself.”
Kerry says he and René designed the Carolina for Schumacher Homes intentionally to honor his father, Dale Sr.’s mother, a charismatic woman whom, Kerry says, has never met a stranger and she glows with pride for her community.
“If you’ve passed through her hometown of Kannapolis, NC, there’s a good chance you’ve had a conversation with her,” says Kerry. “She is a true Carolina Girl, full of grace and strength, and always ready with an encouraging word. There was never any question we Earnhardts had potential — Mamaw E. reminded us kids every day how special we were.”
The Earnhardt Collection™ Carolina
For those who love time with family but also value privacy in a relaxed, personal retreat, Carolina is your home. The downstairs features two main sections of the home connected in the middle by a charming sunroom with lots of windows. You’ll love the open feel of the island kitchen, dining room and great room that also offers a beautiful, optional fireplace. But when it’s time to retire, a quick walk through the sunroom takes you to a stunning owners’ retreat with an enormous bedroom, two walk-in closets and a master bath that will be the envy of everyone you know. There’s also a second spacious bedroom with sloped ceilings, another walk-in closet and full bath on the second floor.
