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.
This is a FANTASTIC opportunity to live on one of Dilworth's great streets, Floral Ave. A charming, spacious front porch welcomes you to this custom-built craftsman. Inside, a wide open living/dining lead to a chef's kitchen with Viking Appliances, a pot filler, large island and bar area. First-floor owners' suite has two walk-in closets and a spa-like bathroom with an incredible shower. Upstairs, there's a loft, laundry, three bedrooms and two more baths. Basement offers a family room with bar (great for home theater) and another bonus/office. Two-car detached garage with heated/cooled room above (currently a gym), and an unfinished workshop/storage below. Fenced, low maintenance yard that feels like your own mountain house. Walk to all East Boulevard has to offer (a block away). Welcome home!
