All the seclusion you want.

All the convenience you need.

Built by the Pickett family in 1935, 3226 Pickett is located on .6 acres in the middle of Durham — yet feels like a farmhouse in the heart of the countryside.

We’re located on a corner lot with pecan trees, mature flowering shrubs, and established perennials: dozens of daffodils each March, irises in early summer, camellias, azaleas, forsythia, redbud, cherry, crepe myrtle, and more. It’s amazing to watch the property “wake up” each spring and explode into a riot of color.

We’re also within 2.5 miles of five schools (Hill Center, Durham Academy, Cresset, Trinity, and Forestview Elementary), 4 miles to Duke’s main West Campus, a mere 1.5 miles from Target, and easy walking distance to Sandy Creek Park and trails.

The reality is that old houses that were built a hundred years ago were built by actual craftsmen… The little nuances in the woodwork, the framing of the doors, the built-in nooks, the windows—all had been done by smart, talented people, and I quickly found that uncovering those details and all of that character made the house more inviting and more attractive and more alive.”Joana Gaines, The Magnolia Story

A Paradise for Pups (and Kids!)
