The land on which Weaving Water will be built is just 1.5 miles northeast of Picnic restaurant on Cole Mill Road less than seven miles from downtown Durham. The beautiful land is adjacent to the Eno River State Park Pump Station Trail with many miles of hiking trails at your fingertips. Map our location at 3912 Rivermont Rd. Durham, NC.
The land will serve as the site for Weaving Water’s 24 contemporary, architect-designed homes, each with 800 - 2000 square feet and built sustainably using green building practices. The homes will have open plans and will combine plentiful windows and natural light with warm, inviting materials like wood and stone. The green views and abundant light in each home will be designed to make the inhabitants feel that they are always connected to nature, and will allow for ease of movement between indoor and outdoor spaces.

Weaving Water has a modern, creative outlook on exploring new possibilities for our built environment, and that modern approach is not just about the buildings themselves. Rather, as Laura Deam, Founder and CEO of Dwell Magazine reflects, “Modernism is an exploration of authenticity, materials, and function; it involves problem solving, testing different ideas, and expressing a little idiosyncrasy. Most important, it's about work that responds to the time in which we live.” Each building at Weaving Water is meant to reflect the ideals of a community-focused, nature-inspired lifestyle.
The neighborhood design includes a common house which provides a dining room/movement space, kitchen, shared guest rooms, and everyday access to a phenomenal view of the sunset - a view so phenomenal, in fact, that it is one of the reasons this land was chosen for Weaving Water.
Early members of Weaving Water (those who join by spring 2019) will have the opportunity to participate in the design of homes and common spaces.
Finally, because the surrounding natural world is its most valuable asset, the neighborhood will incorporate many outdoor spaces, including open clearings for play and gatherings, land for vegetable gardens and manicured beds, and forest nooks. All of this is walking distance to Eno River State Park trails.
