If you're looking to move to Charlotte, check out the homes for sale in the popular neighborhood of Dilworth. Dilworth was Charlotte’s first streetcar suburb. Dating back to the 1890s, this well-designed neighborhood features stately, mature oak trees, sidewalks, and houses with front porches. The homes are primarily bungalows — with the occasional Queen Anne — and some larger, two-story Colonial Revivals. Much of the neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Dilworth Historic District.
