9.86 Level Acres in heart of Durham
It's hard to explain just how wonderful! Find your own special corner of the world on this stunning 9.86 acre estate of level and usable land. Lose yourself in privacy and nature yet enjoy convenience galore being just minutes to Main St. The land is breathtaking and abuts town owned, undevelopable land. With all the amenities it can become an ideal gentleman's farm. Relocated from VT, there is an 18th century barn with tin roof offering potential for horses and other animals. Along with the relaxing fire pit and regulation lap size Gunite pool, the property is adorned with fieldstone walls, stone and iron posts and granite planters. In the blooming season you will have a festival of colors with fruit trees (apple, pear, and peach), grapes, wisteria and lush roses. So beautiful, your green thumb will begin to itch! If you are in love with yesteryear but do not want to worry about poor insulation, dirt basement floor and no air conditioning, this is the home for you. Under guidance of a Yale architect, this 1780 Antique Cape was dismantled and rebuilt to today's standards while retaining charm and authentic detail. Every modern expectancy has been skillfully integrated so as not to detract from this classic beauty. You will appreciate the chestnut walls in the keeping room, the four fireplaces and the front parlor that held many nervous young beaus who came a-courting. And cooking will be a joy with your Viking Stove and Subzero cleverly designed with the white pine cupboards. An addition includes a convenient mudroom with garden sink and a fabulous family room drenched in sunlight that offers many possibilities. Relish in the beauty of exposed beams upstairs and fill all the nooks and crannies with precious collectibles. It's a beautiful piece of history for you to continue. This truly is an exceptional property. Very rarely do you find land like this while being so close to everything.
