Georgetown - an Affordable Downtown Lifestyle

Opportunities to live Inside the Beltline for less than $250,000 are few and far between. The Georgetown neighborhood in the Five Points area offers affordable eclectic charm as well as an attractive central ITB location. The homes for sale in this part of Raleigh are perfect for those looking for all that the pulsing Raleigh urban lifestyle has to offer.

The original homes in the Georgetown area have a bungalow feel and were built in the 1930’s and 1940’s. There are still many that remain untouched since they were built, but most have been restored and updated, and there are several that were torn down and replaced with larger modern homes. Through the years, the neighborhoods have retained their original character and provide a fantastic urban/suburban lifestyle right next door to Five Points.

628 Georgetown Road

One of the best examples of the Georgetown lifestyle has just come onto the market at 628 Georgetown Road. This two bedroom, one bathroom bungalow has been completely renovated, and has been updated with an artist’s touch. The non-sexy improvements include new plumbing pipes and fixtures, roof, utility room, and HVAC - rare improvements for a home at this price point. The original hardboard siding has been replaced with maintenance free vinyl. Additionally, all of the original hardwoods have been retained and restored, and have a gorgeous patina.

The other upgrades in the home include a completely renovated bathroom - modern upgrades with the original style of the home, an entirely new eat-in kitchen - with modern cabinetry, stainless appliances, concrete countertops, custom pass-thru and millwork. Also, french doors were added to the front bedroom that allow it to be utilized as additional living or studio space if desired. And because closet space can be a limited quantity, a convertible closet space has been created to maximize the versatility of storage space in the home.

Outside, this home offers more of the same - a shady private deck with a fenced back yard, a garden plot and terraced front yard, as well as a long driveway. Overall, the property is big enough to allow for privacy and outdoor living, without the burden of time spent in maintenance.
