House Two #B

Welcome to House Two #B! (RENTED)

If you like to be in the city and close to everything, yet have a big tree-filled back yard getaway, this home is for you!  It has a real “secluded” forest feel, yet is steps away to downtown Durham.

House two #B is the back unit of the house pictured above, accessible through the driveway to the left.  The 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 Fern, Ponysaurus, Fullsteam, and the Pinhook; hotels including 21C museum hotel, Marriott, and the Durham; entertainment such as the Carolina Theater, the Shed, and DPAC, and fitness centers including the YMCA & several yoga studios).

This cozy one-bedroom / one-bath + bonus 12’x12′ outdoor studio, and huge back yard (with gorgeous pallet deck for entertaining and relaxing) is in a historic home located within an active, diverse, and engaged neighborhood in a central location: Cleveland-Holloway.
