Default Hip, Trendy, Historic parts of Durham?

My wife and I are young (mid-late 20's), fairly trendy, and looking for a place to purchase a house in Durham. We currently reside in the Historic Brooklyn neighborhood of downtown Raleigh, but rent due to the insane price of housing around here.

We would love to find a nice starter home in Durham, preferably a historic area that is close to where all the cool people hang out. We drove around a bit the other day, and loved the neighborhoods just around the Duke campus, but we have no clue what the area is called to look for houses.

Any assistance in this department would be lovely.

Search for the following neighborhoods: Trinity Park, Watts-Hillandale, Old North Durham, Northgate Park, Burch Ave., Trinity Heights, Walltown, Old West Durham, Morehead Hill, Forest Hills, Cleveland-Holloway.

That'll give you a broad set of homes to look at -- from urban pioneer options in the $60k level to million dollar homes.

Good luck!

Thank you so much. I've seen a few of those, but having a larger list of options definitely helps.

Your best bet would be to go down to Frankin St across from the old Post office and ask them where they live. They are down there normally by two in the afternoon.

BCR, you missed the best one IMO-- Duke Park! On the other side of Duke St. from much much pricier Trinity Park and a closer walk to the cool stuff downtown, like the Farmers Market.

It was a snarky reply, I think.
