814 Berkeley Street

Durham, NC 27705

Welcome to a piece of history nestled in the heart of Durham, just half a block from Duke East Campus. This enchanting 1910 Victorian home, located in historic Trinity Heights, seamlessly blends timeless elegance with modern updates, offering a unique opportunity to own a piece of the past while enjoying the comforts of today. The gorgeous wrap-around front porch sits high above the street level overlooking the lush greenery of the front yard. Upon entry, you are immediately drawn to the hardwood floors, high ceilings, and historic details. The front sitting room is an entertainer's dream with beautiful natural light, tile fireplace (as is), and access to the dining room via original pocket doors. Flowing through to the formal dining room, the nostalgic historical features continue. In a time when the charm of a formal dining space is making a comeback, this room offers endless opportunities for family dinners and entertaining friends. The kitchen is perhaps one of the most exciting spaces in this home. With countless modern updates and an expanded design (done in compliance with the local historic designation) the kitchen shows off a perfect blend of old and new design features including custom cabinetry, granite countertops, and stainless-steel appliances. There is ample storage and counter space with custom built-ins, a gorgeous, reclaimed wood island, and access to the enchanting side patio AND back screened porch. The downstairs bedroom is accessed through the entry hallway and has a separate access to the back screened in porch and immaculately landscaped backyard. The bathroom on the first floor was fully renovated in 2013 to have a new tile shower, tile floors, and vanity. Following the natural flow of the floorplan, heading back down the hall towards the front door, there is an adorable window nook and countless details that are indicative of the early 1900's including beadboard ceilings and wainscotting along the walls. Upstairs one immediately notices the original wide plank pine floors, and the beautiful sunlight enveloping the loft space. The two upstairs bedrooms each have marble fireplaces (as is), immaculate beadboard ceilings, and an adjoining door. The upstairs bathroom has been updated with penny round floor tiling, and spacious built in storage, accenting the clawfoot tub/ shower combo. The true gem of this property can be found at the back of the home and accessed through a flex space adjacent to the third bedroom upstairs. This remodeled apartment is complete with a bathroom, eat in kitchen, private laundry, and one OR two bedrooms (depending on how you chose to utilize the additional flex room that sits between the third bedroom and apartment.) There is a separate access via an outside staircase and porch spanning the length of the back of the house. The porch overlooks the pristinely landscaped backyard complete with koi pond, countless trees and shrubs, and parking allotment accessed from the back alley. This income producing bonus feature is the cherry on top of a truly fabulous home in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Durham.
