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.
Welcome to this picture perfect bungalow in Dilworth. This rocking chair front porch is the perfect place to watch the world go by or you can head up to East Blvd for shopping and dining. The space functions well depending on the owner but was most recently used as a master down with dining room and office as well as additonal bedroom and bonus upstairs. Recent updates include a gorgeous kitchen with stainless appliances, custom cabinets, farm sink, wine storage, and heated floors; new paint and carpet up; refinished deck and landscaping in both front, side and rear yard and new windows. The home lives well as is but can easily be added onto for additonal square footage. The basement can be accessed both from the inside of the home as well as walk out.
