Since its inception in the 1890′s, Dilworth has been one of Charlotte’s most distinct neighborhoods. Developed as the city’s first suburb, Dilworth was connected to downtown by Charlotte’s first electric streetcar. The success of the initial development of Dilworth led its creator, Edward Dilworth Latta, to expand the neighborhood in the 1910′s, under a plan by the Olmstead Brothers, then the nation’s preeminent landscape designers.
Although their plan was never fully implemented, the Olmstead’s curved roads and dramatic landscaping set the tone for much of Charlotte’s future character. In 1987, Dilworth was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Located on a quiet cul de sac with beautiful trees, this Craftsman Charmer is perfectly situated in the heart of Dilworth. The wrap around, expansive front porch creates the most welcome entry. This immaculate home has gleaming hardwoods throughout. Sundrenched rooms have 9ft ceilings on the main level. Primary suite is on the main floor with a recently completed, gorgeous updated bathroom complete with freestanding soaking tub & frameless shower. Charming kitchen has ample white cabinetry, granite countertops & gas cooking. Generously sized bedrooms, 2 oversized family living rooms offer lots of potential. Very private yard with a rare 2 car garage. Unfinished basement with good ceiling height, and lots of walk in attic storage give additional options for storage or expansion. 17 restaurants within 2 blocks! Close to hospital, coffeeshops, Latta Park, Freedom Park and Light Rail. Lot is NOT in Historic district giving more leeway for the next family to make it their very own.
