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.
Built in 1912, this Historic Dilworth bungalow has been carefully renovated for modern living all while keeping the history and charm. The front porch greets you and hints of the beauty and quality just inside the custom carved front door. High ceilings, beautiful hardwood floors, and exquisite millwork throughout.

Upstairs provides office/study/bonus room, laundry room and large primary suite incl heated floors in bath, huge walk-in closet & Jacuzzi shower. Walk to Panther games, dining, shopping, Latta Park!
