Property Description

Welcome to your dream home located just 10 minutes from downtown Durham. Nestled on 3.6 acres of woodland and bisected by a lovely creek, every detail of this home and setting has been crafted to offer the perfect blend of luxury, comfort, and functionality. The heart of the home—the kitchen—boasts an exquisite quartz countertop. Beyond the kitchen, the great room soars upward in a 20 foot Alpine ceiling over the dining area and sunken living room, while the massive wall of fireplace stone is brightened with lime wash to create a focal point that beckons after a long day. The living room is finished with 200 year old red oak flooring from Baba Wooden Floors, and the three coats of oil urethane adds depth and rich character. Both bathrooms are newly renovated, featuring luxurious walk-in showers with rain heads and sliding glass doors. A spa-like experience right at home! Like the great room, each bedroom soars 20 feet, and in the master bedroom, an oaken ladder leads to a loft library—or art room/office. Outside you'll discover your own personal oasis, complete with a wood fired oven (built for pizza, bread, and everything else), a flagstone patio bordering the creek, a fire pit (perfect for roasting marshmallows under a starlit sky), and a screened porch overlooking a gurgling cascade. On the recreation area, you'll find a basketball court, a badminton court, and corn hole game area. A completely unexpected amenity is the beautifully designed 18-hole frisbee golf course! For the entrepreneur or artist, a newly remodeled home office/studio above the garage with a half bath and hvac lies just above the garage and offers new LVP flooring and a new mini-split system for customized comfort year-round. Green thumbs will appreciate the carefully crafted raised-bed garden, as well as the nine blueberry bushes, two apple trees, and two pear trees. A bounty of fresh goodness at your fingertips! (The owner grew lots of tomatoes and put away 50 quarts of tomato sauce each year.) Storage is no issue with a tractor shed, garden shed, utility shed, and even a raccoon-and-fox-impervious chicken coop—lots of space for tools, equipment, and even a hobby farm! A leisurely walking trail winds through the woods and fields and beside the stream, offering glimpses of nature's beauty at every turn. Both the exterior, interior, and deck of this home have been newly painted and last year the roof was shingled with fifty year Americana shingles. The spacious rear deck spans the entire back face of the home and is edged with new black metal railing. The entire home was repiped with Pex this year. This is not just a home—it's a lifestyle where every day feels like a retreat. Make it your forever home, or invest in a vacation home which has already proven itself in the short term rental market.
