About

We live in a large, historic home in a quiet, verdant setting yet just a short walk from the restaurants, shops and theaters of downtown. On the ground floor, the house features a stately dining room, modern eat-in kitchen, spacious living room and a beautiful wood paneled library/office, with 6 bedrooms/4 bathrooms on the 2nd floor (some of which could also be used as offices). The exterior includes a screened-in porch and an idyllic garden with table, a gazebo and flowers throughout the year. There is also a hot tub nestled among the greenery. The house retains most of its original details, including built-in bookcases in the library and intricate woodwork and wainscoting on the grand staircase. We have redone one of the bathrooms to have a rain shower, and parts of the kitchen to maintain the original while modernizing with a Wolf induction cooktop. There is a baby grand piano in the living room. Durham is a short walk (or drive if you prefer) with the performing arts center and American Tobacco campus especially close. I bike to Duke in 15-20 minutes, or it's a 3 mile drive when it's raining. Chapel Hill is about 20 min away. Orchard Park, a popular neighbor place with playground, is diagonally across the street.
