Many of the historic tobacco buildings have been converted into chic loft-style condos and apartment complexes. Downtown Durham, which is undergoing a wonderful renaissance, even offers high-rise condos with the kind of big-city amenities one might expect in New York or Miami, such as rooftop swimming pools and gorgeous views from floor to ceiling windows. City-slickers will love the walkability and vibe of Downtown Durham.

For those who are looking for the burbs but still want the convenience of the city, numerous subdivisions and townhome communities are scattered all throughout the area for local professionals or single-family homebuyers rs seeking a bit more room to grow.

Nature lovers will want to check out the neighborhoods in North Durham near the Eno River, one of Durham’s best treasures.

Luxury home buyers will find gorgeous homes in the upscale subdivisions which include The Hills of Rosemont, Maida Vale, Treyburn, and Colvard Farms.

If your budget is more in the $300,000 to $500,000 price range, however, we suggest checking out homes for sale in Brightleaf, The Hills at Southpoint, Chancellors Ridge, or Huntington Ridge.
