The Space

Fearrington Village, North Carolina is a lovely rural community just South of Chapel Hill. Regionally and nationally recognized visual artists live and create in Fearrington. Nature-inspired painter and sculptor, Dr. Forrest Greenslade has his Organic Forrestry Studio and Forrest Dweller Sculpture Garden at his home there. The Artist’s Garret, just above Forrest’s studio, is a comfortable one bedroom apartment with gallery sitting room, full kitchen and bath, all decorated with Greenslade’s art. Or prices include a 3% occupancy tax from Chatham County NC.

After parking in a private space, take a few moments to enjoy some of Forrest’s sculpture in the front yard or paintings in the Greenslades home gallery. Forrest and his wife Carol-Ann will be happy to give you a personal tour. We can also arrange for you to visit other Artist Studios in the area. You will also find information on local recreation, shopping and dining in the surrounding areas in your room.

The apartment is very private, in a separate building over the studio. The sunny kitchen has new granite counters with stainless sink, refrigerator-freezer, well stocked Keurig coffee maker, microwave, toaster, range and dishwasher. We don't serve breakfast, but you can enjoy a snack or meal at Aunt Addie’s antique maple dinette table & chairs, recently decorated by local artist friend Kate Ladd.

The large gallery sitting room is filled with light, right up to the cathedral ceilings. A colorful rug that Carol-Ann dragged home from Tunisia, dresses up the newly refinished parquet wood floor. You can sit in the comfortable leather chair, and put your feet up on the matching ottoman, or use your computer via wifi at the partner’s desk, on which Forrest wrote his PhD thesis, nearly 50 years ago.

The cozy bedroom has a new queen-sized bed, with 500 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets. The room is decorated with keepsakes and childhood works by daughter-artist Kathryn Greenslade Armstrong. Watch some cable TV, do some reading, and get a good night’s sleep. Just off the full bath, is a walk-in closet and library.

The apartment has central heat and air conditioning with an electronic air scrubber.

Enjoy the sculpture garden. Take a long walk on one of the community trails that adjoins the Greenslade garden, which is a National Wildlife Federation certified wildlife habitat. The garden has been featured in Carolina Gardener Magazine.

The Artist’s Garret is a quick walk to local Village Center, with incredible gardens, gourmet restaurants, a first-rate independent bookstore, spa, hair salon and charming shops.
