Henry David Thoreau said: “I think that I cannot preserve my health and spirits, unless I spend four hours a day at least — and it is commonly more than that — sauntering through the woods and over the hills and fields, absolutely free from all worldly engagements.” This home and property is the epitome of that quote.

With over 35 acres, you have true privacy and quiet serenity of the woods. This home is close enough to civilization but just a short distance to Research Triangle Park, Crabtree, Durham, and all the great things that come along with city life: plenty of restaurants and cultural events. To gain entrance, you cross over a newly built bridge that spans Rocky Branch Creek and travel down a scenic winding driveway to arrive at the home.
The interior is just as wonderful with 10 ft ceilings downstairs, hardwood floors both upstairs and down. The entry way makes a sweeping statement as soon as you walk through the doors and the view from the second floor down to the foyer is striking as well.
The outside has two extra large storage buildings and the home draws water off 2 wells with it’s own septic system.
