Our custom build at 1511 Courtland Drive is making great progress! This home, located in Central Raleigh near the Mordecai neighborhood and just off Capital Boulevard, is in a thriving area close to some of Raleigh’s best breweries, restaurants, and other great local businesses. It’s a hot spot for sure—making this home all the more desirable. Take a look at some of the highlights of the area below!

Pine State Coffee

This popular, locally-owned specialty roaster and cafe boasts a variety of coffee options made with beans from all over the world. They offer your standard faves (from a good ‘ole cup of joe to cappuccinos and lattes, and more), and often partner with other local businesses to offer specialty pastries, tea, and coffee.


This one’s for the runners! Raleigh’s only independently owned and operated specialty running store provides quality shoes, apparel, and accessories for all those folks out there who love to pound the pavement.

Watkin’s Grill

A Raleigh institution since 1947, Watkin’s Grill is known for its down-home breakfast and lunch fare—from breakfast sandwiches and omelets to cheeseburgers and other lunch sandwiches. The best part? Breakfast is served all day!


Calling all antique hunters! TrunkShow features numerous vintage and artisan one-of-a-kind items you won’t be able to find anywhere else, including apparel, furniture, art, handmade goods, and gifts. It’s like an antique treasure hunt!

And So Much More…

On the other side of Capital Boulevard, you’ll find a ton more amazing local spots. There’s Bright Spot Donuts, Neuse River Brewing & Brasserie, J. Betski’s, Bowstring Pizza and Brewyard, and Dock 1053—to name just a few. This home is also close to Oakwood hot spots like Stanbury, William Peace University, and Seaboard Station. Obviously, this is a very happening part of town!
