Living in Boylan Heights
Boylan Heights Neighborhood
Here, you’ll find historic craftsman bungalows with classic southern front porches surrounded by mature trees. It’s one of Raleigh’s first planned suburbs.
Boylan Heights was developed with larger front yards than other neighborhood streets to off-set the large houses in the neighborhood.
The different architectural styles range from Dutch Colonials, Craftsman, and Queen Anne/Colonial Revivals.
However, the most common build type is the bungalow.
When you’re looking for real estate, homes for sale, or condos in Boylan Heights, you’ll have plenty of variety in housing style!
Boylan Heights Neighborhood Association & Community Events
With a tight-knit neighborhood association, Boylan Heights is strong in community events like Artwalk, Big Boylan Bash, Garden Club, and Neighborhood Watch.

What Makes Boylan Heights Special
Did you come to this website for a history lesson?
But this is one story is so COOL we just had to share it.
There’s this old house called Montfort Hall in the Boylan Heights neighborhood – long story short – it’s one of the Raleigh few mansions to survive the Civil War.
It was built in 1858!
And it’s soon going to be a Boutique Hotel in the heart of downtown Raleigh.
Once it’s done, the owners Sarah and Jeff (Boylan Heights residents), plan to share the space with their neighbors through community events!
If you love old homes, you HAVE to see the 3D tour of the inside of Montfort Hall.
