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.
Unique Dilworth bungalow graciously mixes character, charm, warmth, & modern minimalism. Bright, flowing spaces are highlighted by a plethora of large windows, an open concept kitchen w/ stainless appliances and breakfast bar, sloped, wood planked ceilings, & a convenient computer niche. An ingenious use of the glass garage door to open onto the spacious screened porch, essentially doubling the living & entertaining space. Walk-in closets w/ custom storage systems, wood, & bamboo floors. Exterior and main floor recently painted. Mature landscaping both front & back w/irrigation. A truly, unbeatable location close to shops, restaurants, etc. is simply the icing on the cake for this picture-perfect home!
