Old South Charlotte Homes – A Rich History
At the turn of the century, Old South Charlotte homes were served by streetcar lines along the neighborhoods of Dilworth, Elizabeth, and Myers Park in South Charlotte, and Plaza-Midwood in East Charlotte. Eastover was the first of the Old South Charlotte homes and neighborhoods especially designed with driveways for their well-heeled residents’ “motorcars”. “Two times four plus a door” refers to the traditional colonial architectural design that is the most popular style in Charlotte – four windows symmetrically placed on either side of a grand entrance way of these old south Charlotte homes. Alongside stately colonials, you’ll also see elegant Victorians and cozy craftsman style bungalows. Average Price – $776,000
