UNDER CONTRACT!

Its hard to tell what to love most about this little charmer. Could it be the rocking chair front porch? The back yard patio? The Gardens and Chicken Coop? The fully permitted remodel done in 2012? or the cool location, close to Duke, great shopping, restaurants and Downtown Durham? Well I can't decide and I bet you can't either. This 1940's Bungalow offers 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms - one of which is a large master bath with double sinks, period hardwood flooring, and an updated kitchen with custom Maple cabinets.

We have found that buyers who choose their vendors based on digital review or paid review sites have unreliable results, at best.
