The prettiest pink Dogwood tree in Boylan Heights.


East Village NYC meets West Raleigh NC

This 1924 Boylan Heights Bungalow has been stunningly rebuilt in & out with contemporary loft like spaces inside. It is the ultimate “green home” with top quality flooring, siding and doors salvaged from the Habitat Reuse Center. The whole house is Energy Star rated reflecting the new windows, roof, insulation, wiring, mechanical systems & more. The mantel is custom built 4 inch southern yellow pine. The fireplaces are decorative but possibly could be fitted with ventless gas logs.


Track lighting, an industrial 15-light sliding door and floors salvaged from a home on Pasquotank Dr create a gallery like space as you enter the home. The long interior wall has been framed so that you could add a door or arched opening connecting the front bedroom to the living room.

Honed absolute black granite counter tops, a natural slate floor & backsplash, new custom built cabinets & stainless sink/counter are some of the plusses in the kitchen. Note the pre-owned Sub- Zero refrigerator and adjacent panty cupboards.

A long hall with floors salvaged from a home on Oberlin Rd connects the three bedrooms. Architectural accents include transom windows and a cast iron floor plate from McGregor downs covering the water turn off valve.
Both new bathrooms have Ipe wood counter tops, natural slate floors, white subway tile and floating cabinetry. The master bath has a double vanity and a Hangrohe shower fixtures. The second bath has a refinished “tiptoe” bath tub with shower.

The master bedroom has a new moveable IKEA closet/wardrobe located along the long inside wall that provides space for adding additional closet/wardrobes. The front bedroom (above left) has two moveable closet/wardrobes.

The versatile floor plan includes a 13x10.8 ft family/sun room that opens onto the 27 long back deck. You can park on the long driveway just steps away from the kitchen.

The 0.17 acre level lot and an adjacent neighbor with a gifted green thumb offer unlimited opportunities to grow your own garden.

Boylan Heights is an eclectic family neighborhood within walking distance of downtown, NC State, the state framers market and the Pullen Park carousel, train and indoor public pool. Activities include an annual December Arts walk and Halloween picture of pumpkins on the nearby Boylan Avenue bridge overlooking the city skyline.

The value of property in Boylan Heights is increased by the fact that is both a local and a National Historic District. See the Toolkit and Neighborhood sections of my site for more information.
