The Northgate Park neighborhood has the simplicity of mid-century architecture; a "welcome home" for those returning from WWII and looking toward a bright future for themselves and their families. The homes developed into a tight, active community of first time homebuyers. A park, a small creek, natural areas and the tobacco trail add to the ambience of the hardwoods that grace the streets. This is a walking neighborhood, with children, dogs and cats, and wonderful neighbors choosing to settle in an urban setting.
Bungalows, mill homes and ranches populate Northgate Park. Close to Duke and within walking distance to the Life and Science Museum and Edison Johnson Recreation Center, the area offers a "hometown" atmosphere within the city of Durham. There is easy proximity to shopping, hospitals and major arteries. Very accessible, the neighborhood is a tucked away gym.
Northgate Park has become a very popular neighborhood; houses are selling remarkably fast.
