Charming historic bungalows and Queen Anne-style homes sit along walkable tree-lined streets. Nationally ranked schools, low crime rates, access to top attractions, and friendly neighbors are the norm. Welcome to Dilworth.
While many of Charlotte's neighborhoods were built over the last few decades, Dilworth is the exception to the rule. The old streetcar suburb dates back to the late 1800s, and residents work hard to preserve that history which just adds character to the homes, businesses, and streets of today. The neighborhood is truly unlike anything else in the city. Located just south of Uptown, residents can practically walk to attractions and businesses. They can also walk to an assortment of locally-owned shops and restaurants on a crisp Carolina afternoon.
Dilworth is an attractive neighborhood for a multitude of reasons. Some of the best schools in the state are located here. One of the city's most popular parks with ball fields, playgrounds, and picnic areas is also located within its boundaries. The neighborhood is known for its low crime rates, as well as its friendly residents. On any given evening, you will see neighbors out walking their dogs, sitting on their big front porches, or taking an evening stroll to a local eatery, and they will always wave hello or stop to chat.
Dilworth is known for its active homeowner's association, the Dilworth Community Association. The association arranges playgroups, has men's and women's groups, maintains a neighborhood network, and does so much more for the community on a daily basis.
The city of Charlotte dates back to 1768 when it was founded and named for Queen Charlotte of England. The largely rural farming community became the site of the first yet short-lived gold rush in the nation in 1799, and after the Civil War, it became one of the biggest producers of textiles in the world. By the late 1900s, Charlotte was well on its way to becoming the country’s second-largest financial center behind only New York City.
Dilworth came about in the 1890s when a man named Edward Dilworth Latta designated 250 acres to become the first planned streetcar suburb in Charlotte. He originally called it the Eighth Ward because its grid pattern closely resembled that of the original four wards in the city. In the years that followed, the streetcar and charming homes attracted new residents and the neighborhood continued to grow. Today, it takes up around 400 acres.
There is certainly no shortage of things to do in and around Dilworth, whether you enjoy shopping, dining, sports, parks, nightlife, museums, concerts, or something more. The neighborhood has its own fun-filled park. Small restaurants and shops are scattered throughout Dilworth, and big box shopping is just minutes away. All of Charlotte’s professional sports teams are just a quick drive from Dilworth, as is the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
In beautiful Dilworth, you will find an assortment of bungalows, Craftsman-style homes, Queen Anne homes, Victorians, and Colonial Revivals that range from about 1,200 to 6,200 square feet. There are also some condominiums and townhomes available. Most of the homes were built during the late 1800s and early 1900s through the 1930s and have since been renovated, but you may find a little newer construction scattered throughout. Gorgeous old trees and sidewalks line the streets of what used to be a streetcar suburb. Prices start in the $300,000s and range up to about $2 million. The average home price is around $540,000.
