The space
... Two wing chairs are situated next to the brick fireplace. The desk is in a bright 75-pane windowed alcove. The queen-size four-poster bed is gently cooled by a ceiling fan. The room has high 10' ceilings, built-in bookshelves and cabinets, and original wainscotting.
...The Elegant Room has a small en-suite bathroom, perfect for a short stay.
... The room is part of the Center for Human Science, which consists of seven air-conditioned houses on its own 2-acre campus in the heart of Chapel Hill. Run by a non-profit organization chartered in 1981 to promote interdisciplinary communication in the behavioral and social sciences (it conducted the famous Nags Head oceanfront conferences for 25 years), the Center provides short- and long-term accommodations to graduate students, faculty, and members of the general public interested in understanding the world we live in. It also sponsors lectures and seminars.
... The house, built in 1907 and occupied for over 50-years by the Callahan family, has three fireplaces and a wrap-around covered front porch.

Where you’ll be

Chapel Hill, North Carolina, United States

... Adjacent to UNC, the oldest public university in the nation, it is a short walk to the hospital, medical schools, and main campus, including Memorial Hall, Playmakers Theater, Ackland Art Museum, Kenan Stadium, and the Dean Dome.
... Two blocks north is the heart of Franklin Street, Chapel Hill's main drag, with clothing stores, bookshops, bars, coffee shops, music venues, a movie theater, and several dozen restaurants all within a fifteen-minute walk.
... A 20-minute walk on a paved footpath along the railroad tracks takes you to downtown Carrboro and the Weaver Street Coop, with summertime Sunday brunches on the lawn with live music.
.... Located in the heart of one of the two Historic districts in Chapel Hill, the Center also provides wonderful walking opportunities through campus and around the beautiful residential areas to the north and west.
... McCauley Street mainly consists of two-story frame houses with covered porches. With no through streets, traffic is primarily bicyclists and pedestrians, with a diverse mix of the undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and retirees who live in the neighborhood.

Looking forward to meeting you at during your stay!
