About the property

Best location in city for being close to Duke, dwntwn, 9th St. and Brightleaf.

Welcome to Bull City Bungalow Garden. Best location for exploring Duke University, Brightleaf Square, downtown Durham, and 9th Street. Our solar-powered 1926 home has a sunny LR, DR and kitchen. The cozy den has a full-size foldout sofa; 2 bedrooms with queen beds. Front porch with rocking chairs and ceiling fans looks out over a garden of herbs and fragrant flowers maintained by the host, an award-winning garden designer. Back deck with grill and dining area overlooks more edible gardens and woods.

Outdoor spaces--front porch and back deck--are pleasant for most of the year. Sunlit living room, dining room and kitchen make great spaces for socializing or relaxing. Bedrooms and den are cozy and quiet. House was built in 1926. Heart pine floors, mahogany wall paneling, soapstone counter. Innovative interior plantings. Organic gardens--front and back--are perfect for strolling after dinner and enjoying fragrant flowers and fruiting plants.

Guest access

Entire home available for guests, except for attic, basement, 1 closet (with bifold doors), and space under the deck. Guests may enjoy the gardens in the front and back. Herbs, vegetables, fruits, and flowers out in the gardens (in season) available for guests to pick and enjoy! Please don't water plants in the garden or houseplants (we take care of that!).

Perfect for Duke visit

  • 4 of 5

Spent the week here on spring break visiting our daughter. Easy walk to campus, and conveniently located for other day trips. Home had everything we needed (family of four) for the week.
