CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Monday night, a 12,000-plus square foot mansion made its own debut on network television. The house, in the gated Evermay neighborhood off of Marvin Road in Charlotte is where new bachelorette Emily Maynard met her 25 suitors.

“We’ve actually had quite a few Hollywood studios, from movies down to reality film, down to some new HBO sitcoms coming into this house, and the biggest reason is it shows great on camera,” said real estate broker Nicholas Peters.

His firm, Peters & Associates, has the house listed at $5,899,900 but because of confidentially agreements he can’t even confirm ‘The Bachelorette’ was shot here.

He can, however, talk about the home, which sits on more than five acres with six bedrooms, seven full and three half-baths. Completed in 2007, it cost the builder, Jas Am Group, more than $8,000,000 to build.

“Everything in this house is exotic—the marble and the floors that are heated throughout the house,” explained Peters. “The wood trim in this house is actually mahogany wood trim with melted down gold flaking that was hand painted.”

If you watched the show, you’ll recognize the entry hall where Maynard greeted the men. Off of that is a grand living room where the rose ceremony was held. A courtyard nearby is where host Chris Harrison first introduced Maynard and out back is the pool where the guys gathered and the swing where Maynard had one-on-one conversations with some of them.

Peters said he has a buyer interested in the house, a woman moving here from Europe.

“We’re under active negotiations. No firm offers have been accepted,” he said.

Although he can’t disclose how much productions pay to film in a house like this, he would say this: “What I can say is that it is well worth their time.”
