Located in the heart of Historic Oakwood, the home is a short walk from State government offices, the Person Street Pharmacy lunch counter (vanila cokes) and much more. This block would have been in the path of a north-south expressway that was permanently defeated in the early 1970's. See neighborhood map. Co-listed with Rachel Neal, 919-720-1920. rachelneal@gmail.com.

The south-facing screen porch, backyard and patio are like a second home. A privacy fence at the end of the concrete driveway partially encloses the yard.

Arched French doors, floor-to-ceiling front windows, central hall, big rooms, tall ceilings - these are just some of the handsome features of this 1909 bungalow.


The dining room with a china closet catches the morning sun. Move in today. Update the large eat-in kitchen, baths and more tomorrow using NC rehab tax credits. Relining the four decorative fireplaces may also be eligible for tax credits.


The versatile floor plan has living & dining rooms plus up to four bedrooms, two with closets. A closet/wardrobe would be required for the front right and back left rooms.
