The Heck-Andrews House Comes to Life

If you take a walk along Raleigh’s historic Blount Street, you will notice multiple examples of architecture depicting the different eras that have spanned the city’s life. Among those is one of the city’s clearest and well-defined examples of the Second Empire style: the Heck-Andrews House. Across the street from the lieutenant governor’s office and just steps away from the governor’s mansion, the Heck-Andrews House was completed in 1872 and occupied until the late 1980s. Since then, the house has stood vacant, preserved in time, all but for the exterior renovation completed by its last owner, the state of North Carolina, in 2014.

But now the house and its new owner, NC REALTORS®, stand on the precipice of a new adventure. NC REALTORS® purchased the Heck-Andrews House in 2016 from the state of North Carolina as part of Governor Pat McCrory’s Project Phoenix. The multi-million-dollar renovation project is being led by award-winning architect James Grady and historic renovation experts, Progressive Contracting. Preserving the house’s history is an important part of cementing NC REALTORS®’ position, not just in Raleigh, but also across our state. The project is expected to be completed in early 2020.
