Welcome to House One #A! (Available, $1,300/month)
If you like historic homes with details like original hardwoods, doors, and windows, vintage chandeliers, and cast iron pedestal tubs, you might love this home! It is situated on a wonderful street in a vibrant part of the city, close to absolutely everything.
Located downtown in the warm and welcoming Cleveland Holloway neighborhood, this home is walkable (within a half-mile) to: restaurants like Dos Perros, Scratch, and Parts & Labor – coffee shops such as Beyu and Cocoa Cinnamon; bars including the Atomic, Arcana, Fullsteam, Ponysaurus, and the Pinhook; hotels with bars/restaurants including the 24/7 21C museum hotel, the Durham (rooftop bar), and the new Unscripted Durham (with pool); theaters including the Carolina Theater and DPAC; and fitness centers including the YMCA & several yoga studios.
This two-bedroom + one bath (unfurnished) with a small private back yard is available January 1st in a townhouse-style historic duplex located within an active, diverse, and engaged neighborhood in a central location.
