Modern Green Home Nestled in Trees near UNC Campus

I am a UNC faculty member renting my 3BR, 3BA home in Chapel Hill from December 20, 2019. This very private and quiet home sits high among the trees on a hillside overlooking Bolin Creek and is located only 1.1 miles from UNC's main Quad. The free Chapel Hill bus line stops at the end of the driveway. Across the street is the new 4.5 mile greenway ideal for running, walking and biking. We are a block from Umstead park (with a playground) and the beach volleyball courts.

The master bedroom has a California King. The guest bedroom has a standard King. Both rooms have ensuite bathrooms. We use the third bedroom as an office. It currently has a desk that is mechanically adjustable for sitting or standing. If you need the third bedroom to function as a bedroom, we can move the office furniture to the garage.

There is also a breakfast room, hall bathroom and vegetable garden.

There is parking for two cars. The deck has two Adirondack chairs, a hammock and large outdoor dining table and benches.

We completed a significant remodel and addition in 2017 that included a 400 square foot luxury master bath and closet, all new AC/HVAC system, and a new open concept kitchen (all new (energy star) stainless steel appliances, recycled hard-surface counter-tops), bamboo flooring throughout, LED interior lighting, and new (low-E) windows and doors. The passive solar design features wall-to-wall south-facing windows and sliding doors (that access a large deck with outdoor dining/grilling space) with a very high sloping ceiling. There is a gas range, large refrigerator, dishwasher, and garbage disposal.

The home is fully furnished in a mid-century modern style and the home has all the kitchen gadgets, linens, and appliances one needs. We are 100% pet friendly and have a fenced yard.

The house is available mid-December/early January through the Spring 2020 term. It may also be available for the Fall 2020 term as well. The home is ideal for a visiting professor coming to UNC or Duke for the Spring term or longer. Home is also located in one of the best school districts in the State.

We have additional pictures and information upon request.
