As Durham grows, the Watts-Hillandale neighborhood stands out as an increasingly popular area. With the neighborhood’s historical charm, tree-lined streets, and central location, you wonder why anyone would live anywhere else. It gives you the quintessential town feel, where you know your neighbors and everyone walks their children to school. You don’t have to drive to the grocery store, you can walk or choose from numerous, award-winning restaurants for dinner. Does this sound good to you? Then, this may be your new home.
1116 Iredell is set perfectly between Ninth St and Broad St, easy access to, well, everything. Just blocks from numerous restaurants and shops, including Whole Foods. Also, within blocks, you’ll find Duke East Campus, the Oval Drive Park, Indian Trail Park and others. You are also just a couple miles to Downtown Durham, DPAC and the best ice cream around at The Parlour. For the times when you do have to leave the neighborhood, you have a less than 10 minute commute to Duke and easy access to highways to get to Raleigh, Chapel Hill and beyond.
There are not many homes like this 1925 Craftsman. This property showcases both the charm of yesterday and the conveniences of today. It underwent major renovations and emerged a complete success. From the first step onto the inviting front porch, you know this house is something special.
When did you notice the black window frames? They caught my eye immediately as I walked up to the house for the first time. Upon entering, you realize you have options. This house has space, and you can decide a floor plan that works for you. Flowing through the rooms, you #1 can easily picture yourself living here and #2 start to notice all the fine details: glass doorknobs, beautiful, original pine wood floors, decorative fireplaces (sorry, they are just decorative at this time), built-in shelving, don’t forget to look up to see the crown molding, and the list goes on.
The option of a main floor bedroom is valuable these days, with a full bath next door, it makes a perfect guest room or can also be used as a downstairs office. Take a moment in the kitchen to note the Wolf range, Bosch dishwasher and kitchen island worthy of envy. The space off the kitchen is a perfect flex space-it works well as a family area, but could also be a breakfast area or be as creative as you would like. Off the back, expanding the living space even more, you’ll find the deck and screened porch looking over the fenced back yard-perfect for entertaining friends and family.
As you make your way upstairs, you realize how much space this home really has. You find 2 more good size bedrooms with closets, an office/flex space room which could easily be a bedroom with an armoire in it and another well-done bathroom. Your laundry is also conveniently located on the second floor. But, the show-stopper is the master suite, which is spacious and bright with a gorgeous double vanity en suite and large walk-in closet suitable for even the most extensive shoe shoppers.
No detail has been overlooked in this charming craftsman. Don’t miss this opportunity for you to own the perfect house in the perfect location.
