NASCAR great Rusty Wallace eyes a speedy sale in the North Carolina mountains


NASCAR Hall of Famer Rusty Wallace is racing to sell his North Carolina estate, listing the scenic retreat for $1.599 million.

The single-story home is on three acres in Linville, a mountain resort community on the northwest side of the state. It takes full advantage of the woodsy setting with floor-to-ceiling windows and wraparound decks out back.

Inside, the open floor plan is a vibrant mix of wood, glass and stone. Chandeliers hang over the foyer and dining area, and the voluminous living room adds built-ins and a fireplace.


Four bedrooms and four bathrooms round out the 3,500-square-foot interior. The master suite, set under vaulted ceilings, expands to a bathroom with a spa tub and a deck with sweeping mountain views.

Josh Aldridge, Natalie Earnhardt and Jonathan Rivers of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty hold the listing.

Wallace, 63, burst onto the racing scene by winning NASCAR Cup Series Rookie of the Year in 1984 and winning the Winston Cup five years later. After winning 55 NASCAR Cup Series races in 25 years, he was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2013.
