This newly-listed gem in the quiet, tree-lined Oakwood/Mordecai area of Downtown Raleigh is walking distance to celebrated restaurants and great shopping. Retreat into the master bedroom for a luxurious night's sleep on an organic mattress, fine bedding, and hand-hewn natural, hardwood frame. A piano, beautiful leather sofa, natural hardwoods, cook's kitchen, laundry room, and a private back deck from which to watch the owls--this is a truly special little home. Please feel free to contact me.

Le logement
This artist's cottage is a nature-lover's retreat in downtown Raleigh. Inside the house, original hardwood floors were carefully restored with a non-toxic natural finish, chosen to create the healthiest possible environment. Feel free to go barefoot, and enjoy the feeling of natural wood. Outdoors, you'll find a magical, natural yard. There's an apple tree, edible flowers, organic herb garden, fig tree, blossoming jasmine, and the rarest of finds: beautiful barred owls (northern hooting owls) living and nesting in the oak tree. Their early-evening call is known to sound like they're asking, "Who, who, who cooks for you?" It's truly surprising this cottage is so close to downtown. A stream running through the back yard is bordered by the "Nice Fox" natural area, to commemorate a nice fox who used to frequent the stream, and for whom the song was written. Above the stream is another private grassy area, perfect for relaxation or meditation. *If booked in spring, the adorable and curious owlets stand on the edge of their nest, and are magical to observe from the back deck. Because this is a very special home, only 28-day-minimum rentals are considered. Please inquire about discounts for longer term.

Emplacement

Raleigh, Caroline du Nord, États-Unis

In my work as a touring musician, I've traveled all over the world, and know what it's like to be in a new place, and just need simple comforts, and good coffee. This neighborhood is quaint, and convenient to everything you need. The house is situated on a quiet side street, a block from Brookside Market and Pizza, which has fantastic food and beverages. They have huge, delicious salads, in addition to gourmet pizza, sandwiches, and specialty beers (including Bhavana and other locals) on tap, and a convivial atmosphere with outdoor patio seating and cafe lights. Trader Joe's is nearby, as is Standard Foods (organic/local grocery and butchery). Yellow Dog Bakery and Cafe, Crawford and Sons Restaurant, Oakwood Pizza, Person Street Bar, and many other perfect little spots are a short walk. Downtown boasts so many celebrated chefs, but sometimes a quiet dinner on the back deck with the owls and a glass of wine is simple bliss.

I'm a writer and musician, and have traveled all over the world for work, and so I know how much it means to find a peaceful place, with simple comforts like good coffee nearby, and healthy food. I adore the Owlet Cottage in Downtown Raleigh for its inspiring energy and natural tranquility. The house seems to attract special people who have found it a safe place for writing music, stories, poetry, and all manner of creative expression. The yard is lush with herbs and volunteer edible flowers--pansies, violets, dandelion--and the natural area in the back leads down to a stream where bunnies and birds congregate, and where a nice fox used to frequent. There is now a "Nice Fox natural area" for leaf and limb composting, that borders the steps down to the creek, where a bridge crosses the stream, and steps back up the other side, to take you to another serene, grassy area. It's perfect for contemplating. Owls have their adorable owlets in the property's oak trees in spring and early summer, which are easily observable from the back deck, and add a sense of being immersed in nature, all while being walking/biking distance to downtown, and some of the country's greatest restaurants and most gifted chefs, bakers, brewers, and artisans. Since the house is east-facing, and the hardwood floors have a natural, non-toxic finish, meditation and barefoot yoga are a delightful way to unwind. The Kawai piano has a lovely, full timbre, and the side porch with blossoming jasmine vines is a great morning coffee and writing spot. This is a lucky house, and a true artist's retreat. I have enjoyed owning this home, and the creative kinship it engenders. Sharing its welcoming warmth with others is a true joy.
