University Park is in the middle of a transformation. You’ve really got a few options – a modern McMansion on a scraped lot, grandma’s house, or a funky evolution of art and convenience. 2929 Oberry Street is ready for the next family to grow into this home.
University Park is an area generally bounded by Cameron Village, NC State University, Meredith College, and Wade Avenue. Developed between 1930-1950, this area represents a booming time in Raleigh’s history. With one of the oldest and most active neighborhood associations, you’re joining a rich family history – Easter egg hunts, Independence parades, Halloween haunts, and Holiday parties are common. And, with fantastic community amenities within walking distance – Jaycee CC, Pollock Place and Chamberlain parks, Raleigh Rose Garden and the Little Theater, and Cameron Village. The lifestyle offered at 2929 Oberry Street puts you square in the middle of the best parts of Raleigh!
For the first time in 35+ years, 2929 Oberry Street is available to purchase. This fantastic property has evolved through the years from a 900sf bungalow, into a well-appointed family home. It is obvious from the first moment walk you in that this is a unique opportunity – custom whimsical touches adorn nearly every space.
The home features a sleek Mondrian-style kitchen, a family room ceiling right out of an aeronaut’s dream, a first-floor master suite with a floating bed, an upstairs bedroom suite straight from a schooner, another set of cozy matching bedrooms and bath, an intimate loft library and attached art studio, and of course outside there is a multi-level tree house to overlook the rambling property.
Around University Park:
Cameron Village – In the 1940’s enterprising Raleighites developed the first shopping mall between Atlanta and DC. Created as a true “village,” the area is a popular destination to shop and play. It continues to evolve while keeping its mid-century modern vibe.
Little Theater & Rose Garden – This one-of-a-kind gem started in 1936 as a community theater. Performers thru the years include Andy Griffith, Clay Aiken, and thousands of local thespians. The Rose Garden offers gorgeous year-round floral displays and hosts art shows and local events and weddings.
NC Fairgrounds & PNC Arena – With over 500 yearly events, there is always something to enjoy – from weekly flea markets to ag competitions and of course the state fair (w/ pig racing!). The PNC Arena is home to the Carolina Hurricanes as well as NCSU basketball. It also hosts concerts, seminars, rodeos, and Monster Jam.
