Your Introduction to Charlotte - the Heart of the New South©

Dilworth On Sale- South Charlotte 1st Quarter

April 8th, 2009 Listed Under: Community Reports, Dilworth

Homes Sold, Homes For Sale, Dilworth in Charlotte

Dilworth began its life as the first suburb of Charlotte connected by street car to Charlotte in 1905.   Today, when locals say Dilworth, they think arts and crafts homes, tree lined streets, walking neighborhoods, an esoteric collection of shops and restaurants… all just 5 minutes to Uptown.  Charlotte’s best city park is there- Freedom Park, and it is bound on one end by the gracious and beautiful Myers Park- and the other end, the once working class now very hip SouthEnd… Historic SouthEnd as it’s former mills became shops, lofts and commercial establishments,and the Lynx replaced the long gone street car.

Dilworth is beautiful any time, but spring and  fall are my favorites.

A few notes… the 68/sf and the 107/sf were pre rehab prices…. the home on Worthington was stripped to the studs, and waiting a finish. Interestingly, the very next best price, the house on Atherton was new-reflecting the willingness of many of the builders to make great deals. No surprise that the highest cost per sf was on Dwilworth and Lexington, two favorite streets.
