Developed around 1920, this neighborhood on Charlotte’s northwest side is a designated historic district in the shadow of the city’s skyline. It’s one of the few places in town to get a Dilworth-style bungalow for less than $200,000, but some renovated homes are selling for more than $300,000. New home developments, and restoration projects of older homes are also sprouting up throughout the area.
Don’t miss: The George Wadsworth house at 400 South Summit Avenue, dating to 1910. The original owner, George Pierce Wadsworth, was a local businessman who assumed presidency of the family business, Wadsworth Sons Company, in 1902. He diversified the family’s livery and livestock business to include Smith-Wadsworth Hardware Company, Carolina Baking Company, Wadsworth Land Company and Wadsworth Seborn Company, a sales operation for Reo cars throughout the Carolinas. He also served as a director for Charlotte National Bank
The Wadsworth House offers the perfect setting for indoor or outdoor weddings with intimacy and ample space for large gatherings. A new feature coming soon is a wedding chapel to be located in the old carriage house.
