Will you join me on a trip back in time...a recent guest said, 'Ellen's house is chill. It's like the 50's built the future.' Catalano Guest House of Raleigh is a historically significant, nearly perfectly preserved piece of mid-Century Modernist Architecture. Only minor updating has occurred since it was built in 1953 -- a bathroom update in the late '70s (though the large, goldenrod, enamel tub was left in place) and the replacement of a galley kitchen with a large family size, full-size kitchen in 1996.

It is also known as the Carrier Weathermaker National Prize-Winning House, a showcase home designed and built to demonstrate the affordability and accessibility of A/C in a moderate price range. Only the very affluent were privileged enough to have A/C at that time. Catalano and Caminos inventively incorporated HVAC vents by encasing them in the concrete flooring system. For their design, Carrier Corp. awarded Catalano and Caminos with the first place cash prize of $5,000. The home received publicity in 1954 as a feature in Living For Young Homemakers magazine and Raleigh’s local newspaper, the News and Observer. Over the years the house was renamed three times. More
House Rules
Pets Allowed: Yes
Smoking Allowed: Yes
Kid Friendly: Yes
Folks smoke on the front patio, only. Kids are welcome, but Mom and Dad need to know that there is large single pane, non-tempered glass throughout the house. I prefer shoes not to be worn in the house, but this is a request, not a requirement. I have provided a place by your entrance to remove and store shoes.

About the neighbourhood
Safe walkable upscale neighborhood. Whole For Grocery and our bus stop are < .3 km. Very close to the award winning Raleigh Greenway (trails) and the North Carolina Museum of Art. NCSU is an 8 min bus ride. Downtown Raleigh takes about 20 mins.
Getting around
We have the bikes on buses program and the trains allow bicycles as well. I do not need a car as the bus stop is less than .3 km away. This area is quite hilly, so you might think about that if walking or biking is a problem. We have both e-bikes and electric scooters for rent everywhere. Our bus route is #4 on the Go Raleigh System and the Go Triangle System also has stops nearby, but a little further that can take you to Chapel Hill, Durham, and RDU as well as the Research Triangle Park.
