Beautiful, Large Home in Watts Hospital Hillandale Neighborhood, Close to Duke and Duke Hospital

We are listing our 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom, approximately 3100 sqft home in one of the best neighborhoods in Durham--Watts Hospital Hillandale Neighborhood.

The house has beautiful light and hardwood floors throughout and is fully renovated. Gorgeous kitchen with a 48" stove and all appliances (dishwasher, microwave, fridge). Washer/dryer and side entry mudroom with hooks for coats and shoe cubbies, even a charging station for an electric vehicle. The living room has a well-maintained baby grand piano and a gas log fireplace. 3 bedrooms upstairs, one downstairs. One bedroom has a queen sized bed, one has a full sized bed, and one bedroom has twin bunk beds. The fourth bedroom currently serves as an office, but could be used as an additional bedroom, and there is another office on the first floor.

The home is about 1 mile from Duke’s main campus and less than a mile from Duke University Hospital, and close to Oval Park. Our home is one of Preservation Durham's historical homes and award winners. There is a very large front porch, a screened porch on the back with fan and a very large backyard with a professionally built treehouse in one of the largest magnolia trees in Durham.

Perfect for a family visiting or moving to the area or Duke. We are open to pets. Our preference is for it to be rented furnished or semi-furnished, but are open to discussing this. The dates are flexible. Feel free to reach out for more photos or further information.
