Durham house description

Charming home at the end of a residential street, nestled in beautiful oak forest, located in Durham, NC near the Eno River and approximately 10 minutes from Duke University.

View the forest through the large skylights in the high ceiling above the open living/dining area. Enjoy forest views through every window in the home and from the two private decks. Hike nature trails beginning within 150 ft of the home and extending to and through the Eno River State Park. Be near, but feel far, from everything except nature.

The master bedroom has a Queen-size Sleep Number bed and a private enclosed deck at the back of house. The second bedroom has an antique full-size bed. We have added a full-size futon bed to the attic. The full bathroom is newly remodeled and the kitchen is fully equipped (including a new side-by-side refrigerator, a new glass-top stove/oven and basic pantry items) with all that you need to enjoy cooking and baking during your stay. The 400 square foot loft has a large forest-view skylight and is outfitted with two desks and reading chairs, and a futon sofa/bed.

This home is ideal for visiting scholars, families, parents visiting adult children at Duke, for patients/families visiting Duke Medical Center and for singles, couples or families looking for some time away.

We welcome families with small children (we have two of our own!). Stair gate, twin air mattress, pack-n-play, high chair, and toys and books for are available upon request.

                                  About the owner: This was our family home for years. With the birth of our second child we moved to nearby Chapel Hill. We love this beautiful forest location so much that we couldn't bear to part with the home and instead decided to share it with others. We still visit often.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                  We love to walk the miles of nature trails that begin at the end of the driveway and lead to the Eno River. The Eno River trails are a favorite in our family- they even provided the backdrop for our wedding!
