Durham, North Carolina, United States
I am subletting my bright and cozy little home in quirky, pleasant, and tree-filled Northgate Park neighborhood for the summer! If you care about getting a lot of natural light, you'll love this house! Hang out in the peaceful back yard (from which you can enjoy the view of artist Gene Dillard's beautiful tiled home: http://www.genedillardart.com/my-house/), borrow a bike to get around (downtown and Duke East are 2 miles away and an easy bike ride down the Ellerbee Trail), make yourself at home. This is an lovely and comfortable-feeling space where you can rest and relax. Also, I've got amazing neighbors, a beautiful park to walk in just four blocks away, along with the trails behind the Museum of Life and Science. It's the perfect combo of being close to everything going on downtown, and yet tucked away in a peaceful little haven! The house is a charming little 2BD/1BA bungalow (built 1941) with hardwood floors and lots of natural light. There are two closets in the main room, one for hanging clothes and a shallower one with shelf space, and a half closet in the additional bedroom. Both bedrooms have queen size beds. The rest of the house is quite simple. There is a dining room that connects to a living room, one bathroom, and a tiny kitchen with the most beautiful morning and afternoon light that provides the best "cooking triangle" to prepare meals I've had. I've got all the basics (microwave, stove, oven, toaster oven, pressure cooker, blender, etc.), except no dishwasher. Washer and dryer are in the basement, with plenty of space to hang clothes. The house is perfect for summer students, professors, or interns. There is a carport that I use as an outdoor "porch", but which can accommodate two cars. Other things I love about the house: the golden light that comes into the bedrooms in the afternoon, 1940s charming details, hardwood floors, great water pressure with plenty of hot water, central AC/heating, easy to open and close newer windows, the basement keeps the house much dryer than most Durham homes I know, convenience to grocery stores, how solidly constructed it is. Rent includes yard work and basic Time Warner internet. Other utilities charged as consumed. $100 cleaning fee at end of stay.
