Located in the West Raleigh National Historic District, this home is within a short walking distance of NC State, Olds Elementary School, Cameron Village and the Rose Garden.


A wall of windows overlooks the 30 ft long terrazzo tile porch of this classic pre-war bungalow that is set back nicely from the street.

Claustrophobes will celebrate the extraordinary openness. Decorators will appreciate how big rooms can be home to all styles - modernist, traditional, eclectic.



Party givers and goers will enjoy the flow. Push the dining room table to the side for buffets, extend it for family reunions. Open the side door that leads to a picturesque balcony with a porch swing.


The floor plan is versatile. The front corner bedroom could be a study/den with its own wall of windows and built-in bookshelves. The middle bedroom - the largest - could be a family/guest room. Imagine it lined with bookshelves.


A practical expansion option - extend/enlarge the back blue bedroom , and remodel or relocate the 2nd full bath that was added within the original room years ago. The result - a spacious master suite.


A kitchen with a view - and lots of storage. Note the big roll-out drawers. The sun room overlooks the backyard and one car garage that is accessed by a shared driveway.


Upgrades may be eligible for NC Rehab tax credits because of the location in a national historic district. Historic District Commission approval is NOT required for exterior changes because it is a national, not a local district.


The basement includes a finished bonus/rec/play room and unfinished area for storage and a workshop. Pull down stairs lead to spacious attic storage.
