Surrounded by Duke Forest, this almost 13 acre treasure offers quiet privacy 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. A separate restored 1840's farmhouse provides an additional 2BRs/2BA plus LR w/fp, full kitchen and screen porch. The main house incorporates historic elements of clapboard, a staircase, stone, brick & beams rescued from a beautiful old house in Halifax, Va. Gorgeous flow for entertaining. Magnificent stone fireplace. Incomparable heart pine woodwork. Pretty baths, bookcases, open kitchen/scullery/ barn doors. Enormous storage in garage walk-up & under house walk-in. Ancient trees shade 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.
