Breathe. Surrounded by Duke Forest, this almost 13 acre treasure offers quiet and privacy but is only minutes from Duke, DT Durham or Chapel Hill. Truly a work of art, the primary residence includes a deconstructed 1850's barn relocated to NC & setting the stage for this carefully curated home completed in 2009. Historic elements of clapboard, a staircase, stone, brick & beams were rescued from a beautiful old house in Halifax, Va. Gorgeous flow for entertaining. Magnificent stone fireplace. Incomparable heartpine woodwork. Open kitchen/ pantry, pretty baths. A carefully restored separate 1840's farmhouse provides an additional 1743 SF of charming guest quarters with 2BR/2BA, LR w/fp, full kitchen and screen porch. Ancient trees shade and grace this land grant parcel of Couch family heritage. Established gardens include stone and brick hardscape, retaining walls, a meandering creekbed and koi pond lovingly planted with specimen favorites and next generation trees. Deer fencing & irrigation protect the large vegetable garden. Rolling pasture welcomes children and pets to play freely.
