Premium 2 Bedroom + 2 Full Baths + Office + Pool

Note: Currently booked until June 2022. Our comfortably furnished, light-filled townhouse awaits. Convenient to Duke, UNC, and RTP, this quiet, friendly community offers a lovely natural setting. Swimming and workout room, too!

You will find 1400 square feet of cozy, transitional vibe with a vaulted ceiling, generous windows, and strategically placed half-walls that connect space while maintaining privacy. The upstairs suite features a queen bed with a private bathroom and separate office; the downstairs bedroom has 2 double beds, bunk-style, with a full bathroom across the hall. It works well for a single, housemates or a small family. Our cheerful townhome features a well-equipped granite and stainless kitchen, tile bathrooms, full-size front loading washer and dryer, and soft, neutral colors on window treatments and walls.

Located in southwest Durham, on the Chapel Hill side, this Five Oaks Lakeside neighborhood provides a peaceful, gently-wooded setting. Birds and squirrels and abundant greenery make for pleasant viewing out our windows. Streets are well-lit, and it is not uncommon to find folks out at night for an evening stroll.

Whether you lean toward Trader Joe's or Harris Teeter, you’ll find plenty of shopping and dining options nearby. Use of a car is recommended, and there is dedicated parking out front for two vehicles.

Firm policies: No smoking and, because some folks are allergic to animals, no pets on premises, inside or out.

About Me
As a former elementary and middle school teacher, I have had the pleasure of teaching in both public and independent schools in Chapel Hill and Durham, North Carolina and in The Netherlands at The American School of the Hague. Since retiring, I have remained active in the field of education, helping to found two area schools and serving currently on one, chairing the Board of Trustees. Our oldest daughter teaches sophomore English in our local school system. It warms my heart to see young, public school teachers drawn to a field of little thanks these days. I believe they are a cut above: mission-minded and energetic and willing to roll up their sleeves for hard but satisfying, work.

My wife and I rented this townhouse for 3 1/2 months from Sept.-Dec. 2017. The townhouse is just as advertised. It's convenient to both Duke University and UNC as well as to shopping and restaurants. The townhouse is in a quiet community and is very comfortable. The owner was very helpful, and we recommend the townhouse. Excellent Dave Ribar 12/28/2017 10:01:00 AM
