Looking for a townhome lifestyle in a single family home?


The current owners purchased this home as a 936 square-foot 1-level bungalow with the intent of a complete tear-down & remodel. Instead, they took the walls down to the foundation and created an upscale work of art that combines the old with hip, fresh and modern…



Exemplifying the timelessness of the 1940’s bungalow that it once was, with all the charm of old Dilworth that you love, this gem also embraces all of the modern finishes you desire in an impressive, open floorplan! The sellers have JUST painted the home (5/2019) and installed brand new carpet in all of the bedrooms (also 5/2019). This lovely home is move-in ready!

Every pet owner loves a park and every child loves a park too…as does every parent loves spending time watching their children (human or fur babies) at play! The sellers of this lovely home in Dilworth have thoroughly enjoyed walking across the street to Freedom Park almost every day with their children and their fur baby…and having a lush, green, low-maintenance backyard too!

Walkable, Pet-Friendly Freedom Park

Just imagine the lifestyle – walk or bike to restaurants, shops & entertainment along East Boulevard. Enjoy walking around the corner for Dilworth’s Food Truck Fridays at the end of a long week!

Freedom Park’s Festival in the Park offers a few days of pizzazz to the Park in the fall but, on normal days at the Park, you’ll find baseball or basketball games being played or volleyball on the sand courts. Enjoy a stroll around the pond or read a book by the babbling brook on the peaceful path that runs throughout the Park.

Oh, and by-the-way, the neighbors are AMAZING!
