About this listing

The space

Renovated 1920s farmhouse on 3 acres in what used to be rural Orange County NC, now just on the outskirts of town, 3 miles from downtown Chapel Hill. Convenient to university and hospital. Surrounded by woods but only 1 mile south of Southern Village's shopping, cinema, dining, and park-n-ride bus stop (for Chapel Hill's free public transit) and playground, picnic facilities, basketball courts, disc golf course, dog park, and walking trails of Southern Community Park. Fearrington Village is 5.3 miles south.
Tin roof, heart pine floors, high ceilings with ceiling fans, front porch with swing, screened-in back porch, two large bedrooms each with queen-size bed, large eat-in kitchen (nothing fancy but fully equipped and does have dishwasher)... a charming old house in a beautiful little college town.

Please message me if you're interested, and I'll send you detailed information on the house for your review prior to booking.

Brande was very nice and accomodating. With a little work I'm sure the property will be a wonderful place to stay.

Brande's farmhouse was a great place to call home during Our transition to Chapel Hill and Brande was a wonderful and gracious host! Thanks for a very hospitable welcome to the south.

Our moving plans changed very quickly and we needed a place that was furnished and would take both our dogs and cats for a month. This was the only place I could find that could accommodate us. Brande was very nice and helpful. The house is close to grocery and Walmart shopping and I felt safe there. There are many nice places to eat close as well. The only drawback was no internet service.

We were extremely fortunate to live in the “1920’s Farmhouse” for four months while my wife was receiving medical care at nearby world-famous Duke University Medical Center. At home, on Cape Cod, we also live in a farmhouse, dating from the 1840’s, and Brande’s lovely, spacious, comfortable, well-appointed house made us feel right at home from the beginning. My wife, a trained chef, especially loved the fully equipped kitchen and enjoyed playing the piano. There’s also a large collection of books, magazines, maps, brochures, etc. – a wonderful resource for planning your sightseeing and activities, which includes an eclectic selection of books for great evening reading. The location combines the pleasures of country living with all the amenities of nearby Chapel Hill, only a ten minute drive, and, conveniently just a mile down the road, the award-winning planned community of Southern Village with its wonderful walking trails, park, playgrounds, fitness club, shops, restaurants, movie theater, summer farmers’ market and outdoor concerts, etc. Best of all, was our wonderful host, Brande - always immediately responsive to whatever we might need and a great resource for suggestions of things to do and places to go and see. You will be fortunate indeed if you are able to be guests at Brande’s farmhouse. In fact, we loved living here so much that we’re buying a house just down the road! Thank you, Brande!!

Brande was a wonderful host, and the special Christmas decorations made it feel like a home-away from home. The location was perfect for our needs - surrounded by woods so it felt very cozy, with space for my little boys to run around outside without disturbing the neighbors, and it was a quick drive into downtown Chapel Hill! Thank you!

Brande was a great hostess! We rented for 29 days in between closings on our houses and it was tough to find someone who would house us with our 4 children. We had a great experience, everything we needed was there. It was a quaint little place, out of the way yet close to anything! If I had a question or concern, she responded quickly! Overall it was an enjoyable time and worked perfectly for our family! Despite the wretched heat! Thanks, Brande!!

From the minute I contacted Brande through Airbnb she couldn't have been more helpful. She answered all my questions and assisted me with my reservation through the website. She was very accommodating in meeting me. The farmhouse is a jewel hidden off the road in a cluster of trees. It's hard to believe it is along a main road and only two miles from downtown Chapel Hill. The house is totally furnished with absolutely everything you could want or need. As soon as you pull up to the house it invites you in with the big front porch. My Niece spent hours swinging on the porch swing. If your looking for a place to get away from it all but still be accessible to everything then this is the place. Can't say enough about the house and Brande. Rather were both exceptional!!!

North Carolinian who loves to travel! I live in an old farmhouse in Chapel Hill, a small university town in NC's beautiful green piedmont. And I'd rather spend my precious travel $ with a friendly entrepreneur than an anonymous hotel.
