Tucked behind the church on the corner, 1815 Dilworth Road East was the original parsonage of First Christian Church. This English cottage style home was built in 1929 toward the end of the building boom in Dilworth. The front door is a six panel cottage style door with a window set in the left corner to view your visitors.  These eight panel doors continue throughout the inside of the home.

Thru the French doors formal dining room is bright, with large windows that face the tree-lined street. The remodeled kitchen is spacious.  The breakfast area was incorporated into the kitchen creating a wonderful space for the family to eat and hang out watching you cook.  A bank of cabinets on the front wall incorporate wine storage and a tv niche – for watching your favorite cooking shows.

There are yards of countertop for the gourmet.  Black granite provides easy clean up.  The kitchen is also outfitted with top of the line Stainless Steel appliances, including a whisper quiet Bosch dishwasher and a Viking refrigerator.

As you make your way thru the kitchen toward the back yard you will love the “Drop Zone.” Converted from a small bedroom this space is now fully functional for a home office, craft room or drop zone for book bags and muddy boots.  The floor is beautiful slate set on the diagonal. The first floor also has two large bedrooms, each with it’s own bath.  The first bedroom is  17’ by 15’ and with the 10 foot ceilings it feels even larger.  The back bedroom is also spacious and windows look out to the garden.  Both baths have been renovated in keeping with the style of the home.

Upstairs is a wonderful master retreat with a large master closet and dressing room. The large master closet and dressing room features custom storage for everything!  It will take a lot of shopping to fill this up. The master bath gives a nod to the history of the house with a claw foot tub, vintage style tile and wainscoting.  There is also a large walk in shower and two pedestal sinks.

The yard and garden are an extension of the lovely living area.  If you’re social you will love the front and side porches.  Wave to your neighbors as they walk by, and then stop and sit awhile to listen to the nearby melodic church bells. Follow the brick walkway to the adorable back yard.  Brick lined stone paths wind through the shade garden filled with lenten roses and boxwoods.  There is a secluded patio just perfect for a glass of wine or cook out. You won’t believe you are just five minutes from Uptown Charlotte!
