4401 American Dr. is about 1/2 mile to the Duke Bus Stop on Morreene Rd. and ~1 mile to Duke. This 3 bed 2 bath home is quietly nestled away in 1/2 an acre of the Duke Forest. Most acreage is in the fenced in backyard where a 6 foot wooden fence exists for privacy and in the back a metal 6 foot fence takes over giving the illusion that Duke Forest behind the property is ENDLESS. In the backyard outside of the fence all you see are deer. You can walk your dog or run in any of the numerous trails throughout this area of the Duke Forest. Since this property is in the Duke Forest, it is not only really close to Duke's West Campus, but it is also just a short distance from the: 1) Law School; 2)Fuqua;3)Public Policy; 4)DUMC;and 5) Cameron!!!!!! The private back patio boasts a 6 person propane fire table. With the flick of a switch your fire table produces a beautiful and warm glow you can relax around with a glass of wine and catch up with your other housemates!!!!
Recently remodeled by a professional designer this 3 bed/2 bath home is a perfect example of today’s open living concept – living, dining, kitchen areas are all open. From these main areas a 60 inch 1080 flat screen is mounted with a blue ray player as a fixture of this rental above the wood burning fireplace allowing everyone the option to watch TV, movies, or even play video games.
There is lots of storage with an extra large entry closet, professional closet organizers in all bedroom closets, 3 long medium levels of shelving in the w/d closet which also houses a front loader 1 year old w/d with steam setting removing wrinkles in a ~3 minutes allowing you to hit snooze 1-2 more times. Backyard storage for bicycles is available in the attached shed. Additional living space is provided on the back patio and yard. Fence gate locks from the inside or you could attach a padlock from the outside if you want to leave your doggie out while at class. There is lots of parking on the long driveway and in the street.
The wide plank floors run everywhere except the entrance and bathrooms. You will love the professionally hung blinds and curtain rods throughout. There are matching silk drapes in the living and dining rooms to the modern two tone color combination which highlights the blue pearl granite not only on the counters but also on the kitchen island bar. The Ralph Lauren Silver Color below the chair rail lightens the flooring and makes the ceilings feel higher than 9 feet. The blue color above the chair rail accentuates the white contrast of the kitchen cabinets, molding, ceiling, window and door trim, as well as the custom made white wood blinds for the windows. The silk drapes also have an energy efficient lining to helpconserve heat during the winter months in the main living areas and to help keep the central ac air in during the summer while one is out at school or in the lab. There are 3 matching rugs for the living and dining rooms ad kitchen. Not only does the master bath boast a granite counter top and 3 function shower model-rainfall, body jets, and hand held spray but the hall bath boasts the same shower model and also has a granite counter top spanning its depth and length of 60 inches or 5 feet long. Moreover, the hall bath has a 60’’ vanity with dual sinks and dual medicine cabinets to accommodate housemates in the 2 bedrooms next to the 60" double sink bathroom vanity.
