Located in the historic, Watts Hospital-Hillandale Neighborhood, this brick colonial is approximately 2600 square feet. This house ,built in 1938, has 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, a walk-up attic and a 500sqft basement (workshop, not included in 2600sqft estimate) that walks out to the large back yard. The enclosed sun porch adjoins the dining room and the addition on the right contains an office with its own separate entrance and full bathroom (2nd of 2). At the end of the long concrete driveway, there is a two car fully wired, detached garage in the back. The large remodeled kitchen has maple cabinets, stainless steel appliances, a large laundry room attached and opens out to a 16ft X 16ft deck. The house has 2 gas-fired central AC units, one for the 1st floor and one for 2nd and 3rd (the latter is less than 5yrs old). Oak flooring through-out, except in the kitchen and bathrooms which are tiled.
If you aren't familiar with the neighborhood, it is an older, historic area in the center of town, right next to the NC School of Science and Math (former Watts Hospital), walking distance to shopping and restaurants on Ninth Street and 1.5 miles from Duke East Campus. There is a very active email list, many seasonal events such as the famous July Fourth parade and it is just a very warm, friendly place where neighbors know each other, people walk their dogs and say hello. Within the larger neighborhood, Virginia Ave is unique in having a weekly gathering called Sunday Cerveza with its own email list and specific cohesion.
Offered for $398,000. For questions or to arrange to see the house, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (919) 617-7860 and leave a message. Thank you!
