Until recently the studio of a visual artist (long ago garden illustrator for The New York Times), this petite building is completely private. Firm queen bed; ship's ladder to single mattress in loft. Radiant heat. AC. Mini fridge and microwave, electric kettle, Chemex coffee maker, homemade granola, excellent wifi. Unique space in one of the best country neighborhoods around. 6.5 miles to Hillsborough healthy grocery store, 8 to Carrboro/Chapel Hill, 18 to Durham. Serene pond and grounds.

The space
For twenty years this studio has been used for botanical and natural history illustration and life drawings. It was built by a cabinet maker. The light is wonderful, the mood peaceful. Drop leaf table set for breakfast can be opened up for work surface. Everything hanging on the walls was drawn here. Outside the french doors, lawn bordered by raised beds and garden along sculptural brick wall built by the same cabinet maker. Mid twentieth century sculptures by a beloved great aunt. Short scenic drive to health-food/gourmet grocery store, or various restaurants run by award winning chefs.

Where you’ll be

Hillsborough, North Carolina, United States

We live in a rural neighborhood prized by cyclists and walkers. Our property is midway between Carrboro ("The Paris of the Piedmont") and Hillsborough ("The most literary town in America" according to The Wall Street Journal.)
Rolling fields, farm houses, starry nights, happening culture. Five minutes from a locally famous dairy and ice cream shop whose long porch of wooden rockers faces the sunset. Driving the country roads in any direction is a visual pleasure, twenty minutes to bohemian Saxapahaw or chic Durham, similar time travel to UNC or Duke campus, 45 to NC State, 35 to RDU airport.

I am a visual artist (born 1953), interested in people, what makes them who they are, their different cultures. I grew up in northern Chile.
My Canadian husband is a retired science publisher recently turned meticulous artist. We share a love of design, film, food, friends. We moved to NC from New England almost 30 years ago; love our community and our ten acres work-in-progress.
