Raleigh Historic District

There are so many things to love about living in the Raleigh area! Not only are there many beautiful Raleigh homes for sale right now, but there are also excellent dining and entertainment options, great schools, and a rich culture and history. 

If you love older homes, you'll definitely want to explore some of the designated historic districts in and around Raleigh's downtown area. Some of the historic houses here are open to the public, while others remain private homes. Either way, the area offers excellent opportunities for an afternoon sightseeing tour. Here are a few you'll want to check out.

Raleigh Family Meals

When you're always on the go, cooking at home can be a real challenge. If you're like most people, you've probably settled for pizza or a drive-through burger far more often than you would like to admit. 

Our real estate agents completely understand the struggle! Luckily, we've found some excellent area restaurants that offer grab-and-go meals. Next time you're hungry and exhausted, try one of these local restaurants.

When you hear the words "historic home" you tend to think old, like maybe it was built in the early 1900s or even the late 1800s. The Bellewood Estate at 2200 Oxford Rd in Henderson was built in 1760. That means this home has stood through the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, four different centuries and predates both electricity and the telephone.  

Sitting on almost 10 acres of land, this historic estate will greet you with a gated entry, a circular driveway and every ounce of historic charm you would ever want along with all of the modern amenities we've come to love and expect.

Five bedrooms and five bathrooms are included in the nearly 4,600 square foot farmhouse that has been lovingly restored and renovated by the current owners. Those looking for that piece of history need not worry though – the aspects of this home that make it truly unique have been preserved and can be seen in the details. Take for instance the fireplace in the master bath or the grandeur staircase in the foyer or how about the bookcase that is a secret door in the third floor study. 

The main house is accompanied by a separate apartment, six stall barn and a pool house for the heated, saltwater pool.

Raleigh Open Houses

Traditionally, the open house has been one of the most valuable ways for sellers and their agents to invest their time. Our real estate agents are veterans of hundreds of open houses, using them to ensure properties get the attention they deserve. That's crucial when putting Triangle homes for sale on the market.

In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, many areas barred open houses and similar events. Virtual showings have had a heyday, and they will continue to be part of strategy for sellers and buyers alike. However, the open house is picking up steam once again – and it's here to stay.

Raleigh Design Details

When you think about changing up your home decor, you may assume that only big projects can have an equally big impact. But small design details can have a much greater effect on your home's appearance than you think.

Our real estate agents love the following small design changes that can make a big difference in your home's appearance:

In 2020, we spent a lot of time at home, and, for many, the purpose of home changed. It became an office, an entertainment space, a movie theater, a restaurant, a classroom. As we look to a new year, we can't forget how important home is for all of the aforementioned reasons, but also because home is where you make memories. For some, this is the year for new memories to be made in a new home so let us introduce you to one of our HPW luxury listings that is sure to make that happen. 

Located on one of the most desirable streets in Wake Forest's luxury golf community of Hasentree, 1113 Ladowick Lane checks all of the boxes when it comes to must-haves and amenities one could want in a luxury home.

Spanning over 7,100 square feet, this six bedroom, six bathroom custom built home has been meticulously maintained and updated.

Enjoy cooking and entertaining in the gourmet kitchen fitted with top of the line appliances. Beautiful wood beams can be seen throughout the family room, executive office, kitchen and breakfast area. The lower level provides an in-law suite as well as a home gym and theater room. 

Entertain outdoors in grand style on the two-story veranda complete with a fireplace and a private backyard. Enjoy the saltwater pool in the warm months of the year and don't forget to test out the slide, too.
