Oh it'd be really awesome if they had Victorian neighborhoods in the Triangle area. If you know of such a neighborhood, please let me know.

In the Triangle area, the homes that immediately come to mind are in Kitts Creek. Some of them have a lot of Victorian details n the front. The sides & back tend to be very plain, though, and I'm not sure how many of those Victorian details carry over into the interiors.

A few threads about this neighborhood have been created in the Triangle forums, so do a search there for more info.

Kitts Creek looks very cookie cutter and a hogpodge of styles. Are there older victorian neighborhoods?

Do a search in the Triangle section of these forums. You will find plenty of information, as well as posts made by people who live within the community. People tend to either love or hate the community. You'll certainly understand how they developed those opinions if you do a search and read those threads.

There's a company called Preservation Homes who are doing, well not so much victorian, but they are reviving the Bungalow and Craftsman looks. Very appealing. Google them, they are easy to find. I know they are currently building in Raleigh, but may have other projects going on as well, they have gotten great reviews!

Sure, there a couple of Historic neighborhoods in Raleigh that offer a combination of styles including Victorian, Bungalow, and Craftsman style homes.

They are great looking houses in prime locations, so be prepared to drop some serious $$$$ if you want one of these older homes.

These are beautiful homes without a doubt but I am interested in a new build-with the old victorian look. Know of any of these in NC?
