45th Annual Dilworth Home Tour
Join us for Charlotte’s oldest, and best, Home Tour! The 45th annual Dilworth Home Tour will be held on Friday, Sept. 15 from 6pm-9pm and Saturday, Sept. 16 from 10am-4pm. Each year, the non-profit Dilworth Community Association (“DCA”) stages this much anticipated tour to welcome friends and neighbors to enjoy a tour of Charlotte’s first Streetcar Suburb. Proceeds benefit DCA efforts to promote and protect the integrity of the Dilworth community and environment. Each year, a portion of the funds raised is dedicated to the local charity selected by the DCA’s giving arm, Dilworth Cares. This year’s recipient is the Dilworth Soup Kitchen.
Visit one home that has been brought back to life from neglect and disrepair. From the slate roof to the pocket doors that had been sealed within the original plaster walls, 317 E. Kingston Ave. has been carefully restored and transitioned to a beautiful restoration with modern comforts.
A surprise awaits as you enter 410 E. Park Ave., a beautiful Victorian home facing Latta Park. Contrasting with the elaborate exterior, is the contemporary renovation influenced by the owners’ recent move from Amsterdam.
From a ranch house to a dream house, 1300 Myrtle Ave. has been completely transformed. This home has been designed to be comfortably fashionable, yet timeless.
The Cape Colonial at 830 E. Park Ave. needed a full renovation. Great care was taken to preserve the charm and integrity of the home. Without altering the footprint, a second floor and more fluid floor plan were created.
One, of only two, true examples of postmodern architecture in Charlotte is 1239 Belgrave Pl. This home has been featured in several architectural magazines and even featured in a movie, “The Architect”!
Different additions and renovations by different owners often lead to an erratic flow in a home. 1214 Belgrave Pl. has been most recently renovated to add flow, function, and aesthetic to this traditional home.
Originally a Dutch Revival kit house, 804 E. Worthington Ave. has been completely reimagined. Much attention was given to restoring and matching all original woodwork while adding enough room, and modern comforts, for a family of 6.
Charlotte B-cycle has teamed up with us this year! They will provide a limited number of free bicycles for the tour and set up bike racks at each of the homes. Ride a bike, enjoy our community, and don’t worry about parking!
Advance tickets are $25. The price goes up to $30 on the days of the tour.
