As the roaring 20’s got underway and Babe Ruth began playing for the Yankees, a fine colonial style home was built overlooking the largest park in Raleigh’s distinctive Cameron Park neighborhood.
At that time, Cameron Park Neighborhood was far out of town.
Now, 98 years later, it’s a desirable historic downtown neighborhood.
The home at 311 W Park Drive is a contributing structure to Cameron Park’s historic designation. As such, it’s a candidate for North Carolina’s renovation tax credits.
It’s now for sale and needs a little TLC to bring back it’s inherent grandeur.
The layout is thoughtful. Circular flow of the first floor is great for entertaining.
Visualize incorporating the butler’s pantry into a beautiful modern Kitchen adjacent to the spacious Dining Room.
Options exist for both upstairs and downstairs master suites.
First floor full bath and master bedroom upgrades have been left unfinished.
Upstairs rooms surround a large central landing.
Envision the smallest room (presently a nursery/office) as a bathroom with private access to the upstairs master bedroom.
Parking is easy off the back alley or on the street out front.
But you won’t need your car as often in this wonderful walkable location.
We’re working on a couple of videos, such as 3D walk through and drone tour. Will post those videos and more photos very soon.

This is the video version of Whitfield Tart discussing his family home.
The Allmand Holmes House, built in 1856, is a Greek Revival style home located in Clinton, NC. Halfway between Raleigh and the North Carolina Coast.
Listed on the National Register of historic places and perfectly situated on a stunning one acre lot in the historic district – walkable to downtown Clinton.
Enjoy the rare elegance provided by this extraordinary home. Pamper family and friends with the pleasure of large rooms and graceful porches – upstairs and down.
Behind the main house, are 3 other structures – an interesting original smokehouse, a mid-century guest house and the old carriage house which has been converted into a guest house.
Some updating is needed but the numerous original architectural details are astounding – including paneled wainscot, intricate staircase, Greek Revival door and window surrounds. Five of the six fireplace mantels are original. A marble mantle in one parlor was imported from a lost plantation house called Pleasant Retreat.
Wrap-around porch along the back was long ago enclosed to accommodate a kitchen. The original kitchen off the back porch was then converted to a garage. Good options are available to incorporate a modern kitchen, including reclaiming the original kitchen space.
