House One #A

** Occupied: Not for rent at the moment **

Welcome to House One #A!

If you like historic homes with details like original hardwoods and light fixtures, French doors, cast iron pedestal tubs, and glass door knobs, you might love this home.

This home is near/in downtown Durham, walkable to absolutely everything (restaurants like Dos Perros, Scratch, and Parts & Labor – coffee shops such as Beyu and Cocoa Cinnamon; bars such as the Atomic, Bar Lusconi, Ponysaurus, and the Pinhook; hotels including 21C museum hotel, Marriott, and the Durham; entertainment such as the Carolina Theater, DPAC, fitness centers including the YMCA & several yoga studios).

This two-bedroom + one bath with a small private back yard is in a townhouse-style historic duplex located within an active, diverse, and engaged neighborhood in a central location: Cleveland-Holloway.

Since the home was built as a townhouse/duplex, the layout and design make for a comfortable and “whole” feeling home.
