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.
This classic 1928's Dilworth bungalow has been renovated and added onto for today's discerning buyers. Details such as the large windows, slate roof, wrap around front porch, 12 ' ceilings, heavy moldings and pocket doors all add to the charm of the home. With gracious formals and a butlers pantry adjacent to the updated kitchen and family room, the home has great flow for entertaining. The owners suite is on the first floor and 3 secondary bedrooms, 2 full baths and laundry round out the second floor. The rear yard is an outdoor oasis with kitchen and patio. Deep yard that could be grassed as well. Great area for shooting hoops and playing hide and seek with neighbors too! The home is perfectly located between the shops and restaurants of East Blvd, the action in south end and recreation in Latta Park. The property is located in the historic district and all rules and regulations apply. The original front 2 fireplaces are sold as is. School assignment change in 2018/2019
