Artsy Loft in Old Tobacco Warehouse

Apartment - Entire home/apt · West Morgan Street, Durham, NC 27701, United States

High ceilings, exposed brick, pine floors, and huge windows overlooking downtown Durham greet you at this spacious and sunny loft. Plants, funky art, books, and board games abound, and the location is stellar. Ample parking, use of a bike, fitness center, and outdoor pool to boot!

The Space

The apartment is part of Durham history, as it is housed in The West Village, a collection of 7 historic tobacco warehouses. Our loft is in the Flowers Building, with beautiful views of downtown and extremely close proximity to all the things that make Durham great, including excellent local restaurants, cafes, a bustling weekend farmers market, popular brewery, art galleries, and a historic movie house/theater. Durham Performing Arts Center, American Tobacco Campus, and the Durham Bulls Stadium are a short walking distance. Duke University, both east and west campuses, are a short drive, as are Duke Gardens, Ninth Street and Whole Foods. Our apartment has 2 bedrooms to choose from and a Jack and Jill bathroom with shower and bathtub. Both bedrooms have queen beds, tons of pillows, and fresh sheets. The main space has an open floor plan, galley kitchen, large farm table, and a flat screen with Apple TV if that's your thing. The kitchen is fully stocked and you are welcome to anything in the cabinets. PLEASE NOTE: As with some converted loft spaces, the bedroom walls don't reach the height of the high loft ceiling. This means there is physical privacy, but not noise privacy. Both bedrooms have powerful fans to create white noise. If you don't mind the "openness," the apartment is great for 2 couples, friends, or a family.

Guest Access

A Bianci bike is available for use, and if you need additional bikes, there is a rental shop within walking distance. The American Tobacco Trail for walking and biking can be accessed in several points near the apartment. A seasonal outdoor pool is available and there is a 24 hour fitness center. Parking is free and ample. The apartment is on the top floor (3rd) and has a large elevator. The floor is quiet and has top notch security (passcode needed). Burt's Bees is a local company, so their bath products are available for guests to use!

We're available 24/7 by phone and an onsite management office is near if anything out-of-ordinary happens.

  • my favorite airbnb experience yet. Very cool place and very cool people.

    January 2014
  • The loft was exactly as described -- roomy, comfortable, secure, clean, and complete with great amenities. Annie was very easy to contact via email and was warm and accommodating -- she even left her Christmas tree up for our family to enjoy! The location is convenient to many buildings from Durham's tobacco history. Make sure to try the waffles and chicken at Dame's (Almost Famous) Chicken and Waffles down the street and enjoy the delicious pizza at the 604 restaurant downstairs.

A former New Yorker transplanted to Durham, I work as a therapist and in my free time love to plan trips! Recent travels include Morocco, Cuba, and Austria, while closer to home, my favorite destinations are Brooklyn, Austin, and my parents' home in South Carolina. When I'm staying put, I love to check out flea markets and festivals, stay quiet with yoga and reading, and indulge in eating out.
