Duke Forest is a beautiful established neighborhood that was originally developed in 1929 to attract professors to Duke University. The neighborhood is located about 10 minutes southwest of downtown Durham, near Duke's West Campus.

The private, quiet neighborhood is known for its midcentury modern homes on large wooded lots with mature trees. Duke Forest has the most modernist homes out of any neighborhood in Durham! The New York Times recently featured a beautiful home for sale in Duke Forest for $840,000.
Homes in Duke Forest are priced from the $400s - $900s, and sit on larger lots around .5 to 1.5 acres.
