Intown Creekside Retreat - quick to UNC, RDU, Durham

  • 3 bedrooms
  • 1 bathroom


This stunning forested retreat is perched on top of a breathtaking creekside vista, minutes from downtown and interstate 40, convenient to RDU, Durham, and the Triangle. Convenient to all of Chapel Hill's attractions, this spacious, light-filled home is minutes from shopping and dining, nightlife, and family-friendly activities. It is ideal for families, large or small groups, couples, and business travelers

Our house is very conveniently located to UNC Chapel Hill, Duke University, Research Triangle Park (RTP), RDU airport, and downtown Chapel Hill and Durham. We are 4 miles from UNC Chapel Hill, a 3 minute drive from interstate 40 and the Timberlyne and Chapel Hill North shopping centers, cinema, and plentiful restaurants and grocery stores. We are also only 3 miles from downtown and Franklin Street, and walking distance to 86/MLK Blvd and the free bus stop that will take you all over Chapel Hill and Carrboro

You will love our home because of the beautiful views, quality and cleanliness of the amenities, rare access to the creek, and convenient location. And while we have preserved some of the original features that make the home unique, the entire house was recently renovated and virtually everything is NEW!

Completely updated with new quartz countertops, beds and bedding, fixtures and furnishings throughout, no detail has been overlooked. From the comfortable beds to the well-stocked chef’s kitchen and full-size washer/dryer, to the large fire pit with seating creekside, fully equipped grill with picnic table and plenty of seating outside under the trees, you will find every convenience to make your stay in this beautiful setting complete. After a glass of wine while you take in the scenery on the private patio, or a bbq on the deck, follow the path lighting down the steps to the creek-side, and enjoy roasting marshmallows over a bonfire in the fire pit

The space is linked to the upstairs of the house via an internal stairwell. This stairwell is not used when guests are in residence and it is enclosed by a locked sound-reducing solid-core door to ensure privacy and minimize sound transmission. There is no visual contact between the upper level and the lower level from inside

A 1970's split-level house, it has been updated to separate the first and second levels of the house, creating two completely separate fully updated apartments. We live in the upper level apartment, and guests have the entire ground level apartment with private entrance to themselves. The upstairs is also available from time to time, and can accommodate another 6 guests, great for larger gatherings. We have recently added a tiny house on the property that can accommodate up to 4 guests

At the back of the house overlooking the creek, guests have access to a private covered patio, along with a deck and a fire pit beside the creek. Besides the patio, the rest of the outdoor space is shared space with us and guests staying in other spaces available on the property

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would find in a luxury residence, such as brand new stainless steel pots and pans, coffee maker, microwave, 4-slice toaster oven, basic cooking kit, bake-ware, and everything else you could think of to entertain your guests

The three bedrooms all have deluxe mattresses (two queen, one full and one twin) with new bed sheets, plentiful organic allergen-free pillows, blankets, comforters and duvets. The living room has a brand new futon couch that can easily be opened into a comfortable queen size bed that sleeps two additional people for a total of nine guests. A pack-n-play portable crib is available upon request. The flat screen TV and Roku comes with Netflix, Amazon Prime TV/movies, and more. The place also comes with high-speed wireless internet

The bathroom has a full bathtub and shower, hair dryer, and basic toiletries like shampoo and conditioner, lotion and soap. There is a full-size washer and dryer so that you can take care of your own laundry when on a longer stay, and an iron and ironing board can be found in the laundry closet above the washer/dryer

The backyard patio and deck is beautiful. Surrounded by mature trees, it features a patio set and bbq so that you can truly enjoy those beautiful spring, summer and fall days outside

You have access to the entire separate downstairs level of the home, with the exception of the utility closet off the hallway, and the locked doors leading to the upstairs and a storage closet

If you intend to entertain while you're in residence please let me know your plans before booking. While it is possible to invite friends over for drinks or dinner or a BBQ, please limit unregistered guests to a maximum of 4 visitors at any one time. Please make sure any visitors are off the premises by 10pm
