Are you considering purchasing a home Inside the Beltline (ITB)? You’re not alone! The residential neighborhoods in the historic suburbs of downtown Raleigh are unique and special. We hope that you enjoy getting to know the individual flavor and charm of each of these areas through the resources on our site.
Instead of giving you the birdseye view and then focussing in to specific homes, I would like to do the opposite. Let me position you immediately inside a home, and then describe it and its position ITB…
Welcome to 2609 Royster Street
This home was built in 1932 as a Sears Kit Home. Originally a modest ranch on a great lot, overlooking a winding stream, it has been completely transformed. In 2002, the house was expanded into a 2 story bungalow with 4+ bedrooms and 3 baths. A modern master suite was added that includes a private office and secluded bath retreat. The kitchen was opened to the living areas to accomodate modern lifestyle. Additional space is included and was designed as a future “teen suite” – added value for someone looking for future expansion
Additionally, and because the current residents own a high-end construction business, the home was finished with beautiful and luxurious touches. For example, the main living areas have exotic hardwood floors with a custom finish, and the kitchen has been upfitted with sustainable cork flooring. The remodel also included energy efficient design and upgrades such as south-facing transom windows at the vaulted ceiling peak, and low-e rated windows. The property landscape and hardscape takes advantage of the existing large trees Raleigh is famous for. A traditional southern front porch was added to complete the renovation, and is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the forested beauty of Fallon Park.
It doesn’t matter where this house is, let me move in now, right?!?
A little bit about Anderson Heights
Currently, Anderson Heights is an established and upscale ITB neighborhood. IT has an eclectic mix of well-maintained older homes as well as several newer homes built to fit in with the neighborhood. There are smaller homes valued in the mid $200’s to some larger homes valued over $1 million. With about 1000 homes encompassing a little over 70 acres, you are sure to find something to fit your style and budget.
The winding streets are lined with mature hardwoods and established landscaping, and there are several naturally forested greenspace areas connected to the Raleigh greenway system – specifically, this home overlooks Fallon Park, a protected stream buffer that flows into Crabtree Creek.
Anderson Heights is centrally located and borders Five Points and just east of the Carolina Country Club. It is generally bounded by St. Mary’s St and Glenwood Ave running parallel to Anderson Dr up to Six Forks Rd. Rothgeb Park is a significant amenity at the northern part of this community. Easy access to North Hills – Midtown, as well as Cameron Village, Glenwood South, NC State University, and Downtown Raleigh make this a desireable area. 2-turn access to I440 and beyond allow you efficient transportation coridors to the airport, RTP and the rest of the Triangle.
