Boylan Heights Homes for Sale

Boylan Heights is one of the residential historic districts of Raleigh. Boylan Heights is incredibly charming and is a modern day neighborhood that exemplifies the character, culture, and appeal of its history.

Boylan Heights sits on the grounds of the William Montfort Boylan plantation that originally was located on the outskirts of the Raleigh. Boylan's home, Montfort Hall, an antebellum mansion built in 1858 is still part of the neighborhood.

In 1907, the Boylan's heirs sold a 100-acre tract of largely wooded, hilltop land for residential development. The metamorphosis of plantation to suburb was precisely dictated and thus Boylan Heights became one of Raleigh's first planned suburbs.

Boylan Heights not only reflected the predominant residential design of the time but also its social positioning. The land was divided into building zones based on construction costs.

The first zone contained homes that were the most expensive to build. These were built at the top of the hill, near Boylan's home, Montfort Hall. These Raleigh homes were and are, predominantly in the Queen Anne or Colonial Revival styles.

The second zone homes were less stately and costly. Homes with least expensive construction costs were built further down the hill. These homes are primarily in the bungalow style.

The lots in Boylan Heights are irregularly shaped due to the curving road that were purposely designed on the hilly topography if the original land.

This new Raleigh neighborhood was an instant success. However after WWII the neighborhood fell into disrepair. It was not until the mid 1970's that the renovating of the houses began. The renovations were done with conscious awareness of the history of the area.

In 1984, in recognition of the neighborhood's unique design and character, the Raleigh City Council designated Boylan Heights as a historic district.

This historic status insures that this unique Raleigh neighborhood will maintain its look and feel.

Today there are now 267 homes and twelve streets in this Raleigh Historic District. The tall stately homes still remain at the top of the hill along Boylan Avenue but the most of the homes are in the bungalow style.

Boylan Heights has a "turn of the century" character. Shade trees, crepe myrtles, and dogwoods, line the streets of Boylan Heights. Almost every home in Boylan Heights is at least 80 years old dating from the 1910's and 1920's.

Every home in Boylan Heights has a history and it is known by its owner. Homes in Boylan Heights range in size, price, and historical significance.

A Boylan Heights home can range from a small cozy bungalow costing in the high $100,000s up through stately mansions with prices of over a million.

Boylan Heights has a true sense of neighborhood and today it reflects our current society - active, sociable, neighborly. There are so many great activities that highlight this lifestyle. Things like the summertime Big Boylan Bash, the Labor Day Picnic potluck at Project Enlightenment, the Halloween's Pumpkin Glow, the Art Walk in December, make Boylan Heights an incredible and unique place to live.

Other Inside the Beltline subdivisions include Hayes Barton and Cameron Park to the North, and Historic Oakwood over to the Northeast.
