HPW Open Houses Sept 1-2

Can you believe this weekend marks the start of September? Fall is right around the corner which means football, sweaters and pumpkin spice everything. And then after that, it's on to Halloween, then Thanksgiving and then Christmas. What better way to enjoy all of these upcoming holidays than in a new home? Maybe you want a big front porch to sit out on and hand out candy to all of the trick-or-treaters. Or maybe you want a bigger dining room, so you can finally host Thanksgiving dinner at your place. Or maybe you want a two-story living room, so you can get the biggest and tallest Christmas tree ever.

No matter your reasons for wanting a new home, our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate agents are ready to help. In fact, you can start by visiting them at their open houses this weekend!

Duke University is one of Durham's most celebrated institutions, and locals love visiting the scenic, historical Duke campus throughout the year. The Sarah P.

With more than 50 acres of gardens, along with a gift shop, cafe, and busy schedule of special events, the Sarah P. Duke Gardens are a beautiful place to spend a day. Our real estate agents have all the details on one of Durham's most popular outdoor attractions. 

Enjoy Spectacular Scenery and Beautiful Blooms at Durham's Sarah P. Duke Gardens

Sarah P. Duke Gardens
Location:
Duke Western Campus, 420 Anderson St., Durham, NC 27708
Hours: 8 am to Dusk Year-Round

Tour Gorgeous Gardens Throughout the Year

Whether you're still shopping for Durham homes for sale or already have a place of your own in the city, the Sarah P. Duke Gardens offer the perfect opportunity to escape from the hustle and bustle of a busy schedule. The gardens are broken down into four zones: the Blomquist Garden of Native Plants, Culberson Asiatic Arboretum, Doris Duke Center Gardens, and the Terraces & Historic Gardens. Each zone features a spectacular collection of colorful plants, with unique blooms to enjoy throughout the year.

There is so much to see that it will likely take more than one visit to experience all that the gardens have to offer, and that's not a bad thing. Stopping by at different times of the year is the best way to experience the many seasonal plants at the gardens. Admission is free, so there's never a bad time to take in the stunning scenery of the Sarah P. Duke Gardens.

Classes for Kids and Adults at Sarah P. Duke Gardens

As you might expect from one of Durham's most well-known educational institutions, there are also ample opportunities to learn when you visit the Sarah P. Duke Gardens. Programs at the Sarah P. Duke Gardens include classes for kids and adults, gardening forums, teacher training, Japanese Tea gatherings, and a horticulture certificate program. There are also learning opportunities geared specifically toward families, as well as programs that make for the perfect field trip for young students.

Visit the Terrace Shop and Cafe

Exploring the gardens is an easy way to work up an appetite, and you won't have to travel far to enjoy a great meal. The Terrace Cafe, located in the Doris Duke Center, is the perfect place to stop for a light lunch with the gardens as your backdrop from March through November. You can also stop by the Terrace Shop to purchase a souvenir, chat with the staff, and even pick up some attractive plants for your garden at home.

Special Events at Sarah P. Duke Gardens

Keep an eye on the schedule of special events at Sarah P. Duke Gardens, and enjoy fun, educational events geared toward every member of the family. There are live performances throughout the year, Nature Adventure Camps for the kids during the summer, and tons of opportunities to volunteer at the gardens. There are even trolley tours available, allowing you to take in the beauty of the gardens from the comfort of a trolley car during warm-weather months.

Are you searching for the perfect Durham home that allows you to easily enjoy all of the outdoor attractions that the city has to offer? Contact us at Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston to buy and sell homes throughout the Durham, NC area.

Caistor Lane - FrontSay hello to one of our newest HPW Luxury listings, 1332 Caistor Lane, where privacy and elegance meet. This custom, North Raleigh home is located in The Moorlands subdivision and sits on a wooded 1.5 acre lot.

Start your day by drinking a cup of coffee out on the screened in porch and end your day enjoying a relaxing evening on the stone patio around the fire pit. If you prefer to start and end your day indoors, that's okay, too. You can start your day with a workout session in the exercise room and end your day watching your favorite flick in the theater room. Too tired to make it upstairs once the movie ends? Just sleep in the flex room there in the finished basement – it can be used as a 5th bedroom.

Enjoy the rest of your day soaking in the elegance this home has to offer. Gorgeous hardwoods cover the main floor of this estate along with arched doorways, beautiful crown molding and statement fixtures. A gourmet kitchen is just waiting for you to try out that new recipe you found. With a six burner Wolf range stove, built in stainless steel fridge, ample cabinets and a grand island, you may even be better off hosting that get together you've been meaning to have.
