Duke Forest Homes

Duke Forest is a residential area in Durham that is not a formal subdivision, but rather a series of tracts of land opened from time-to-time by Duke University.  It is generally bordered along Academy Road (Rt. 751), from Picket Road on the North, to Anderson Road, to Highway 15-501, and also around the Duke University Golf Club.

If you are looking for an eclectic neighborhood with homes ranging in age from 15 to 40 years old, Duke Forest might just be a great place to look.  Although first started to support faculty and staff, resale of these homes is available in the open market.  Duke Forest , thus, has residents who work in businesses across The Triangle.

Originally this area was laid-out to offer home lots to Duke University faculty and staff.  The university would open 100 or so home sites and sell the lots to faculty and staff at one-third to one-half the cost of similar lots in non-Duke Forest areas around Durham.  Therefore, nearly all homes in Duke Forest were originally built by faculty and staff.

As a result of academics and administrators building on these lots, there are few "cookie-cutter" homes in Duke Forest. No single developer or architect dominated construction of homes in this area.  There is an eclectic collection of original designs, many from top architects and builders from the area.  There are traditionally styled homes, solar homes, modern design, Tudors, single-story homes and exotic homes.  Prices in Duke Forest generally range from $250,000 to $750,000.  Lots range from .25 acres to just around 1 acre in size.  There are no townhomes or condominiums in Duke Forest.
