I took a trip through the Historic Boyaln Heights neighborhood today and snapped a few picutres of the homes. I will post more in the future as I only got a few today becasue my camera battery ran out soon after I started ! I am planning on going back to get some more shots in the future.The picutres I did take really only represent a portion of two streets in the neighborhood.This neighborhood is located along the west side of downtown Raleigh. You can read more about the Historic Boylan Heights Neighborhood on their community website:http://www.boylanheights.org

Hope you enjoy the pictures. These pictures were taken on 3/3/07

View looking down the street



Some of the Houses on and Around Boylan Avenue South Area













You can see some the larger downtown Raleigh buildings in in the background







More Cool Houses







View looking down the sidewalk, I don't really know what the renters sign is all about. I can't tell if it is an invitation or a warning!


Rental Units



This one looked a little spookey to me! It still has Christmas Wreaths up on the windows in March!

The old red mansion in red with the wreaths is Montfort Hall. Last I heard, no one lives there, it's usually rented out for banquets, weddings, parties, etc. Perhaps nothing big has happened there since Xmas.

As far as the signs to renters...that's unusual to say the least. My only guess is that it is a warning: Your neighbors won't put up with property neglect, trash or loud parties.
Can't say I blame them.

Default Boylan Heights pics

Thanks for taking the time to photograph the neighborhood. On the same street that has the "ask about renting" sign do you know what the Dix 306 sign means? How about those pink pelicans? I like them - DH hates them. LOL

^ Dix306 is a group trying to turn Dorthea Dix Mental Hospital Campus (which the state is closing in favor of a new mental hospital in Butner) into parkland.
Do some searching on this site and you'll probably find a thread or three on that topic.

Thanks for the photos Beautiful beautiful homes!

That renter sign is super weird. Could the property be up for rent and the neighbors requested that prospects check in with them for an interview?

Some of the bigger ones yeah. The smaller ones aren't as bad as you'd guess. I'd say the neighborhood overall is just slightly more than your typical new North Raleigh or Cary subdivision. Higher price per sq foot, for sure...but size isn't everything. The other advantages outweigh it, really.
