Seller's Scoop

  • View: The view of sunset in the summer from the screened in porch can?t be beat!
  • Room: When we're not on the screened in porch, we are in the cozy living room inside.
  • Tree: The fig tree in the front yard is an absolute delight, and produces tons of great tasting figs over the summer.
  • Walk: Making a mile walking loop up through historic Oakwood has been one of our favorite experiences at this house. Levelle Moton Park is also a short walk away and has a great playground and basketball courts.
  • Hike: The Little Rock Greenway trail is just a 15 minute walk from the house and connects right to the Walnut Creek greenway, which can take you to any Raleigh area greenway you want to explore!
  • Breakfast: The Optimist
  • Lunch: Longleaf Swine
  • Dinner: Smokestacks Cafe
  • Pub/Winery: Pelagic
  • Living Here Has Been: This house offers an incredible experience of downtown Raleigh?s growth as well as its historic roots. Our neighbors are friendly and have been here for a long time - we love saying hello to them on a daily basis. This house and its outdoor space are truly unique to the area and we?ve loved experiencing what it has to offer.
