Nestled on a quiet one-way street in Boylan Heights, one of Raleigh's most beautiful old neighborhoods, it's hard not to be swept away by this bungalow. You'll likely be walking home from a concert, event or perhaps just a picnic at Dix Park, and you'll walk down the sidewalk to the white picket fence, come through the gate, arrive at the large covered front porch and pick up your hand-delivered mail from the mailbox at the front door. The home has nearly 100 years of character and charm, with a gorgeous fireplace once intended for coal and now converted to gas logs, authentic hardwood floors, beautiful built-ins, lots of storage space, detailed woodwork and an unfinished basement space. The living and dining room is open concept and is large enough for an office nook at one end. These owners added a stunning second full bathroom (yes, all permitted and official) so the primary bedroom now has its own en suite plus two large closets. Roof, HVAC and water heater have all been replaced in the last few years. The hallway bath is for guests and the second bedroom, currently used as a sunny and cheerful work-from-home office (best view in the house, in our opinion, second only to perhaps working on the front porch). Out back there's a fully fenced-in backyard, spacious storage shed, an eating area and a grassy area. This home offers all the convenience of downtown city life with a cozy place to garden and play fetch with your pup. Nearly every home in Boylan Heights has a history and a story to tell and this home certainly has many, many more to tell with its future owners. The neighbors look forward to welcoming you with open arms and probably some fresh treats from the local farmers market.
