Live, Work, and Play in West End
Turn-of-the-century architecture, rolling hills as your backdrop, rustic stone walls, and shady tall oaks are just a few things you can look forward to when you buy a home in West End. West End residents love to banter back in forth about which street is best to live on in the neighborhood, and West End Boulevard always seems to have its name in the mix. Here, you can discover Colonial-style properties dating all the way back to the 1920s. The classic charm and prime location of these properties are a huge draw for prospective homebuyers in the area.
Dubbed "Winston-Salem's Front Porch," West End was the city's first suburb. The neighborhood's roots run deep back to about 1890, when the community was constructed along Winston-Salem's many streetcar lines. Having now earned the classification of a "streetcar suburb," West End's economic success can be strongly contributed to its location close to the streetcar lines. Today, Burke Street serves as the heart of West End's entertainment district. The storefronts along Burke Street are each reminiscent of West End's whimsical origins.

This bustling thoroughfare goes well beyond being just locally famous, with Our State magazine even citing the street as a go-to destination. Even though Burke Street is comprised of just a few city blocks, its eateries and storefronts combined pack quite the punch. Three must-visit spots on the street include the comfort food classics at West End Cafe, the laid-back vibe accompanied by craft cocktails at Vintage Sofa Bar, and the hyper-local apparel at Camel City Goods.
