This well-maintained Placid Valley ranch home with a new roof offers large rooms and a terrific lower-level apartment on a tree-studded lot set well back from a quiet street. Mature azaleas and Japanese maple grace the wooded front yard. Seven Mile Creek at the edge of the backyard is home to deer, foxes, hawks, owls and other wildlife. The Eno River State park along its namesake river makes for lovely hiking, paddling, or a summer dip just moments away. The fenced backyard has specimen hardwoods, along with open grassy areas for play. Equidistant from Durham and Hillsborough. Close to, Duke, RTP & RDU, but far enough away from everything that you can sleep with the windows open and see the stars clearly at night. 4 bedrooms upstairs, including a vaulted main bedroom with a wall of windows facing the woods and creek. The large lower level apartment has a full kitchen, and a comfortable screened patio, for 3 seasons outdoor living. Sizable side-entry garage. Backup Generator. The first hints of fall are in the air, and this home will only become more lovely as the leaves change. Don’t miss it!
