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.
1020 Isleworth Ave has all of the features that make for a great house and the special components that we like to call "home." Built in 1936 the "mayfield " style home has been stewarded by Dilworth families over the years to take the unique spaces and make them work for today. The bungalow includes high ceilings, cozy spaces, open floor plan and great entertaining space flowing from one room to another. The cooks kitchen has a large pantry, high end appliances and breakfast bar overlooking the light filled family room which flows out to the amazing screened porch with kitchen and outdoor fireplace . The upper floor is the owner suite with 2 additional bedrooms , shared bath and a multi purpose room and laundry. Don't forget to peek in the basement with a home office and wine room. Guests are welcomed with an apartment above the 2 car garage (with electric chargers) and a private large rear yard with low maintenance landscaping. The home is a quiet retreat in the heart of Dilworth!
