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 charming 1931 Dilworth cottage nestled on one of the prettiest streets in the heart of historic Dilworth. This brick one story home has high ceilings, hardwood floors, lots of windows and well proportioned spaces. It is perfect for everyday living and entertaining with a large living room with gas fireplace, dining room, sunroom and office. The spacious and bright kitchen features white cabinetry, stainless appliances, custom storage and informal dining. The primary bedroom suite is well appointed with a walk in shower with bench, garden tub, extra storage and two closets. There are two spacious secondary rooms on the rear with a shared bath. The home functions beautifully as is but also has great expansion possibilities with a .26 acre lot and over 800 square feet of unfinished space in the walk up attic. The one car garage has extra storage space as well. This Dilworth gem is walkable to dining, shopping and recreation in South End and Uptown areas and a must see!
