“Great variety of historic homes!”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

One of the best places in Raleigh to go for a stroll...from beautiful mature trees, to masterfully-built homes (so wish I could afford one!) and gorgeous yards, Historic Oakwood truly is a gem, frozen in time. I am so happy that this area has been restored to show it's true splendor! Can't wait to do the Christmas tour in December!

“A few pretty houses not too many”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

If your around the area is worth passing by but not to make it out of your way to go. In total we saw about 10 houses so there are not that many like I was expecting.

“Beautiful historic homes!”
Reviewed March 6, 2012

I love to just ride around this part of town. The old historic homes are so beautiful and being here brings back memories of my childhood when I lived nearby. I wish I had bought a home here years ago before it became so expensive to own here. The homeowners take great pride in their homes. Just love this neighborhood.
