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.
Super-cool contemporary home just steps away from Freedom Park and East Blvd. shops, restaurants, and wine bars! This location could not be more fun - and along with a really unique, artistic, and well-taken care of home with additional "apartment", this property could not be more special. You'll love the high ceilings, tons of natural light, and oasis-like feel of this home; note the gorgeous landscaping, huge deck with fire pit and outdoor TV overlooking the green space between this home and Freedom Park. Inside, the custom features like built-in bookshelves, custom-built wood wine storage, huge master suite with windows so large it gives a treehouse-like feel, laundry chute, and art niches abound. The quality and craftmanship throughout will not go unnoticed! Secondary building is being used as a resort-like gym (air/heat controlled, TV, large windows overlooking garden!) but would also be great for an office or studio. All new siding installed last year!
