House One #A

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.

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


  • Spacious at 1,075 square feet (two floors);
  • Two bedrooms (large ‘master’ bedroom and small 2nd bedroom — both upstairs);
  • Bathroom with pedestal tub & shower (upstairs);
  • Living room with adjoining dining room;
  • Cozy kitchen with storage space and small screened in breezeway leading to back yard;
  • Appliances including a flat-top stove, refrigerator, and washer/dryer;
  • Newer central A/C and heat HVAC system (forced air system);
  • Original historic windows, doors, and glass door knobs;
  • Energy-saving storm windows with screens (recently installed);
  • Refinished hardwoods throughout the house;
  • Roomy front porch awaiting rocking chair(s);
  • Driveway that can fit 1-2 cars;
  • Private fenced-in small back yard off of the kitchen area;
  • New roof!
  • Storage space in the shed (shared with tenants in #B).
