This architectural gem is snuggled into the Duke University Forest between the thriving university towns of Durham and Chapel Hill, NC. Designed by the architect owner it has 270 degree views of the forest and is quiet and secluded yet minutes from some of the best restaurants on the East Coast. Immediately adjacent is a contemporary art gallery you can browse at your leisure. 6 months of the year the space is used as an artist residency and your rentals pay for the residency program.
