Our house is #3413 Rugby Road. The number is prominently posted on the mailbox. However, it is up on a small hill at a bend in the road, so you will miss it if you are going too fast. It is directly across Rugby Road from Trafalgar Place, a small cul-de-sac off of Rugby. For parties please park on Trafalgar Place.

Note: mileages in these directions are not exact.

From the north: From I-85, get on 15-501 S toward Chapel Hill. Take the Martin Luther King Way exit near the landmark "pickle" office tower, and stay on MLK way as it becomes Archdale and until it intersects with Hope Valley Road (751) at a traffic light. Make the right on Hope Valley Road. Make a right onto Dover, then a left onto Rugby Road. Continue on Rugby for a short distance (less than a half-mile beyond Bristol).

If you miss the right onto Dover, keep going on 751 for another mile and make a right onto Rugby (see directions from south below). If you reach Woodcroft or SR 54 or I-40 then you passed it.

From the south: From I-40 exit onto 751 N, also called Hope Valley Road. Continue for about two miles, past SR 54, the Woodcroft shopping center, housing developments, and Swarthmore Road. Make a left onto Rugby Road. The turnoff is at a dip in the road, just before a bridge over a small creek, with a sign for Saint Stephen's Church. Stay on Rugby for about a mile, keeping right at all forks.
