The barrel vaulted portico is a handsome backdrop for a family reunion picture on the front steps of this home built in 1960 in the heart of the Cameron Park neighborhood.

Multiple surprises!
The scenic hillside location hides:
- an attractive apartment,
- a level garden/patio,
- a large parking pad next to the kitchen with rear alley access, and
- 3,539 finished and 613 unfinished square feet.


Leaded-glass windows and a wide staircase set the tone for this elegant home.

The dining room bay window was added when the house, built in 1960, was extensively remodeled in the 1990's.


The kitchen is over 20 feet long with plenty of room for a breakfast table. The door to the right leads through the laundry/mud room to the parking pad. The double doors open to the handsome brick patio and fenced garden.

Empty nesters and retirees will value the huge 1st floor master bedroom suite with a fireplace, and the great storage throughout the house. Worth mentioning again is the easy access from car to kitchen, and the economic and other benefits of the lower level apartment. 4.5 bathrooms.

The Brady Bunch will value the two bright upstairs bedrooms, and the option of using the apartment as family, rec and hobby rooms or as a teen suite. See the 4 large upstairs closets in the 2nd floor plan. There is also 613 unfinished sqft for storage, exercise, hobbies and a workshop in the lower level.


Cameron Park History

Developed in 1910 on land that once was part of the Duncan Cameron antebellum plantation, Cameron Park was marketed as Raleigh's first planned “sub-division”. The rolling, wooded topography of the site was respected in the curve-linear grid design of the streets and the tree parks in the creek ravines. Contributing to the success of the neighborhood were the Wiley Grammar School built in 1926, and Needham Broughton High School in 1929. Both schools continue their tradition of strong academic programs (Wiley is an international magnet school) and are fully modernized while retaining their original handsome architecture.


Cameron Park is a national, not a local, historic district . This designation permits some properties to be eligible for NC Rehab Tax Credits but does not require public approval for many exterior improvements such as paint colors. It is subject to a City of Raleigh Neighborhood Conservation Overlay District that helps to preserve the unique character of the neighborhood.

Cameron Park Today

Cameron Park today is a wonderfully diverse family neighborhood with a strong sense of community. It remains a wooded oasis surrounded by NC State University, St. Mary's girl school, Cameron Village (with the Raleigh central library), and the Glenwood entertainment district. A short walk or bike ride away are Pullen and Fletcher Parks, State government offices and downtown Raleigh.
