This beautiful home has three bedrooms and features heart pine floors, high ceilings, French doors, and low-maintenance gardens on a .26-acre lot. There are 5 fireplaces, 3 decorative and 2 with gas logs, and there’s even a fireplace in the kitchen!! The large backyard is lush and natural, with pathways, plantings, magnolia, and a water feature. It is a cool, quiet woodland setting right in the heart of Downtown Raleigh. The lovely front porch is perfect for a quiet evening on a swing, entertaining, or chatting with the neighbors, and it is a fine starting point for enjoying all the perks of living in Historic Oakwood and Downtown Raleigh, close to all the restaurants, festivals, museums, and shopping!
