Spacious solar home near Duke, UNC Chapel Hill & Research Triangle Park (RTP)

Open plan solar house with huge kitchen, 2 big bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 2 offices, a small sitting room, guest room, large shady deck with screened gazebo, & private Japanese garden with hot tub. Spacious 2-room master bedroom suite is on main level, with open living room/dining room. Upstairs there's a large second bedroom, a smaller guest room, & a full bathroom. This is an active & passive solar home with many efficient features, air conditioning, and up-to-date appliances.

Quiet wooded corner lot, about .8 of an acre, on a cul-de-sac in a small community of solar homes. Our southwest Durham location is very convenient: 4 miles from Duke, 6 miles from Chapel Hill & the University of North Carolina, and 8 miles from Research Triangle Park and RDU airport. We're within easy walking and biking distance of a public library, grocery stores, bike trails, and several good restaurants.

Piedmont NC has a moderate climate with mild winters, long, lush gradual springs, and sunny, hot summers. It snows rarely but when it does, it's fun. It's about 3 hours to the Blue Ridge Mountains, and also 3 hours to the Atlantic coast and wonderful NC beaches.
