I have decided to branch out and take some pictures of one of Raleigh’s Historic Neighborhoods. These pictures are of the Mordecai Historic District located along the Northeast Boundary of Downtown Raleigh. Most of the original homes were constructed sometime between 1916 and 1947.

I really love this neighborhood. It has a really cool vibe to it. Some homes are in a state of disrepair while others appear to be in mint condition. Definitely worth driving through if you are in Raleigh for a visit. I only posted a few pics so it wouldn't take too long for this page to load. If you want to see the rest, feel free to PM me and I will send you links to the others I took. These pics were all drive-by shots as it is still freezing here! These pictures were taken on 2/16/07.

They can be very pricey, but some of the smaller ones for sale (1,000 -1,200) square feet are listed in the 215-300K range. Don't know what kind of condition they are in on the inside, but from the pics online they don't look too bad. I'm sure some of the larger and extensively renovated ones are up there though.

Well, not as if you move down the street a few blocks to Historic Oakwood....
10 are currently active in Mordecai on the MLS, at $175/SF to about $200/SF.

I have been noticing this house in Historic Haywood. It seems to have a pretty good price. Is this a good area?

Default Just one more Pic

Sorry, I just wanted to add one more picture. The thread discussing first floor master bedrooms and issues with walking up and down stairs got me thinking about what it would be like to walk up the stairs in the picture below each day. Man that looks brutal!!

I've seen some in Portland's West Hills that are worse too. A friend of mine use to live in one w/ the break neck stairs. I always pittied the water delivery guy.... lugging those 5 gallon water bottles straight up. They tipped him very well, but I still think her steps alone probably required a weekly massage for the guy.

They actually had grass on their hill and they had a system of pulleys and lines for the push mower. It was crazy.
