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.
Iconic Craftsman bungalow nestled on one of Dilworth’s largest and loveliest lots. From the striking vaulted-ceiling front porch, step into the gracious Living Room with wood burning fireplace; double glass doors lead to formal Dining area. 10' ceilings, hardwoods, transom windows, "butted" casings, and original "chicklet" bath tile floor are some of the period features of this delightful, historic home. White kitchen with soapstone counters and wood-topped island opens to cozy den. Original breakfast nook serves as home office. Sunroom, just beyond kitchen, doubles as breakfast room and opens to deck. Don't miss the huge upstairs 4th bed/bonus with skylights; perfect for guests, office, playroom/homework station. Stunning backyard is lush and deep -- a lovingly tended garden and bird sanctuary with a 252-square foot workshop. Cherished home, welcome to Dilworth!
