Where to Live
Five Points is full of gorgeous single-family houses of all sizes, from elegant craftsman or bungalows to luxurious colonial revival homes. Closer to downtown, more townhomes are available. Main roads like Anderson Avenue sometimes see heavier traffic as well as the eastern portion of the neighborhood where there is active retail and a small warehouse district. Homes tend to be more expensive the further they are from downtown, but also quieter and with less traffic.
Because of its combination of quiet neighborhoods and its ideal location close to downtown Raleigh, prices in Five Points tend to reflect that demand. Single-family homes can get pricy quickly, and townhomes and condos can be costly as well. However, the proximity of this neighborhood to downtown and the unique character of it’s homes make it easy to see just how desirable this area is.
Where to Eat
While an easy drive to downtown or Glenwood, Five Points is not without its own options. Simple neighborhood eateries as well as some of Raleigh’s trendier restaurants and breweries are easy walks. While not as culinarily diverse as other neighborhoods, many of Five Points establishments have a wonderful, familiar feel that makes them perfect to visit on a weekly basis.
What You’ll See
Expect to see gorgeous lawns and well maintained homes on the west end, with more buildup on Atlantic Avenue towards the east. Heavy traffic can pile up during rush hours, but outside of main roads most of Five Points is a quiet oasis away from the rest of Raleigh. The neighborhood tends to go to sleep earlier than its neighbors downtown and in Glenwood, so don’t expect a rowdy nightlife.
Friday Night Fun
Craft beer rules in Raleigh, and Five Points is packed with local favorites of all sizes and styles. If you’re feeling a bit more upscale on a Friday night, check out one of the many cocktail bars and small plate restaurants, then catch an independent movie at the vintage Rialto Theatre.
The Perfect Sunday
Sunday mornings in Five Points are simple, with easy strolls in the neighborhood and long, casual brunches. Catch a game at a local bar, grill out at the Kiwanis Park, or just enjoy a nice walk through the neighborhood.
If you’re looking to get around, Five Points is packed with bus stops and is quite walkable. For further trips, main roads make accessing the Raleigh Beltline and beyond a breeze, though traffic can get intense during peak hours.
