Historic Oakwood, Raleigh
Raleigh’s Historic Oakwood neighborhood, located just steps away from the Governor's residence, boasts a collective array of architectural styles from mid-Victorian vernacular, neoclassical revival, craftsman, and even a few recent (& contentious) moderns. These quirky, straight out of a film, charming homes are in high demand. And the home-owners are just as winsome as the houses. Oakwood residents host an annual candlelight tour during the winter holidays and a garden tour to welcome Spring. The amenities and community businesses surrounding these homes are, as you would guess, equally as eclectic.
