Rufty Builds First Blount St. Home This Century

The history of Raleigh's Blount Street goes back more than a century. Once considered Raleigh's grand avenue and home to the Governor's Executive Mansion, Blount St. was among the region's most "fashionable neighborhoods" between the Civil War and mid-1900s.

Most of the residential building on and around Blount St. took place just before the turn of the century through the 1920s. Numerous ornate residences with interesting stories set a foundation for this historic neighborhood, with The Governor's residence completed by 1891.

Interestingly enough, for nearly a century no new home construction has taken place along this scenic, main boulevard into downtown. That is, until now.

Rufty Homes has the distinct honor, and pleasure, of building an elegant new residence on Raleigh's most treasured avenue. Stay tuned as we progress at this historic address. As you can see here, we're off to a good start.

  • “It truly is the home of our dreams. It’s where we spend time together, make memories with our kids and grandchildren, and fulfill our life’s passions. I can’t recommend the Rufty Homes team enough if you’re looking for your own forever home.”

    - Frank & Barbara

  • “Of course we’ll be working with Rufty again on all of our future projects, including a fourth home on the property for our youngest daughter, when she’s ready.”

    - Danny & Renate

  • “There was never a question that they were putting our needs first and they were always honest with us. At one point in the building process, we talked in-depth about reconfiguring the layout of the home to change the orientation of the garage. Jon was upfront with us and told us they’d absolutely do it if we wanted, but he warned us that lumber prices were starting to go up, which could impact the project.”

    - Chad & Caroline

  • “We put a lot of time and thought into designing our home, and it was important to us that we could find a builder that would support our vision, while also helping us make smart design decisions. After our first meeting with Rufty Homes, it was clear that they understood our goals and were on board some of the more unique aspects that were important to us.”
