About Ellen Sabin
I love creating great spaces and as a photographer beautiful images. My latest project has been the renovation of The History House. I'm a fun loving people person and where ever I travel I like to meet the locals.
Ellen Sabin purchased this House in 2016
Why Ellen Sabin chose Downtown
This property is located northwest of downtown in the historic Mordecai (Mor-duh-key) neighborhood. Mordecai was originally the largest plantation in the county and is still the site of the oldest house in Raleigh (1785). While I was renovating the property, I even discovered a civil war relic in the backyard. Naming this charming rental The History House just seemed appropriate especially since I purchased the house from the estate of a local historian. Today Mordecai is known as an eclectic neighborhood made up of artists, students, families and seniors.
What makes this House unique
Quiet neighborhood close to downtown.

Absolutely wonderful experience
Beautifully decorated home, amazing and helpful owner, wonderful neighborhood, couldn’t have asked for a better mini vacation!
Thank you Rebecca. I hope to see you again.
What a gem!
The house was impeccably clean. Great location. Couldn't ask for a better rental.
Relaxed, quiet location. Clean, well-appointed. Note-filters into list "with fireplace," but the wood fireplace cannot be used
Julie- My apologies for not realizing the fireplace filters through as an amenity on the property. I will correct that and I only regret that I did not know this was an important feature until after your check out. I would have worked something out for you as my main reason for this rule is the safety of small children since there is not a raised hearth. I do plan to convert the fireplace to gas logs and add a safety screen so that it can be used by guests in the near future. Thank you.
Great little House
This house has great character and is centrally located to everything. We found everything clean and orderly and kitchen had everything we needed. Wi-Fi and Netflix for your entertainment, as well as local channels. But you are not here to watch TV. Lots of games for the family to play as well. The house sleeps 4 people. We would definitely stay again.
Thanks Ray! Glad to know you enjoyed the games. It was wonderful to have your family and I look forward to having you again.
Downtown Sophistication and Charm
We were very lucky to have nabbed this picture-perfect bungalow just in time Christmas. Ellen even surprised us with a beautifully decorated and lit Christmas tree- which we were not expecting at all.
From there it just got better and better. The immaculately cleaned rooms are tastefully decorated and all of the appliances are basically brand new. The kitchen is nicely appointed, if want to stay in- but there are awesome restaurants all around. Plenty of room to entertain too. Literally every comfort was met for us- good beds, good sheets and towels, an updated bathroom, WIFI and a quiet location. The heat works so well in this home, you don't even need the fireplace! We will definitely book again!
Thank you Michael!! You guys were the best. So glad you enjoyed the stay and I look forward to having you again.
Cute, Convenient, Amazing Location, Impeccable Property, Extremely Helpful Homeowner, Must See!
My family and I LOVED our weekend stay at this house. It was worth every penny! House is impeccably clean and well maintained. You'll love the kitchen and dinning room, we made dinner with guests and enjoyed the space. The location is extremely convenient to downtown and the surround neighborhood is very fun! We have a family of four and the house felt so much larger than the square footage would leave you believe.
Can't say enough about Ellen. The home was stocked with everything we needed for our stay and she reached out us beforehand to make sure we didn't have any special requests. The information she provided about the house and its history was so interesting. Check in and check out instructions were very clear. Felt like we were so well taken care of in the comfort of a home!
If you are looking for a place to stay in the area, this home is a must.
Thank you so much Patrick. It was a pleasure hosting your family and I look forward to having you again in the future.
Mordecai Historic Park, Museum, Special Event Venue and St. Mark's Chapel are all one block away.
