FOREST HILLS

The nationally registered historic neighborhood of Forest Hills rose out of farmland purchased in the 1920’s along University Drive. Developers James O. Cobb and Fuller Glass hired Durham architect George Watts Carr, Sr. with the intent to design a suburban neighborhood situated around a golf course. Today that golf course is Forest Hills Park, a public space with committees organized around the gardens, walking trails, croquet clubs, kids club, and historical societies.

Forest Hills is a sought-after, well-established neighborhood drawing back the offspring of previous generations and welcoming relocations to live within the heart of Durham. Settle in close to the campus of Duke University and the vitality of the American Tobacco Campus, a preserved and renovated downtown district consisting of an amphitheatre, restaurants, shops, residential buildings, and offices.

The properties in this area were primarily built from the 1920s to 1990s, allowing for a range of classic historical styles to more contemporary homes. Prices of historic homes range from $400-$500K to $1,000,000+.
