Lovely Fearrington Village is Nestled on Farmland in Central North Carolina and Has Single Family Homes, Town Homes, a Village Center and a Pastoral Quality

Fearrington (pronounced FAIRington) Village is an all ages, mixed-use development midway between Pittsboro and Chapel Hill in central North Carolina. It was started by Fitch Creations, Inc. in 1974 and is still managed by the Fitch family.

 

 

Fitch Creations purchased the original land from the Fearringtons, a family who had operated a dairy farm here for almost two centuries. The community is peppered with meadows, rolling hills and thick stands of trees, giving it a distictly pastoral quality. Popular with baby boomers and empty nesters, Fearrington and will have 1,400 stylish single family homes and town homes when construction is completed.

The community honors the Fearrington family by maintaining original farm buildings and by pasturing Belted Galloway cows. The Village Center, which is the heart of the community, includes a country inn, an independent bookstore, artist studios, a cafe, two restaurants (one of which has a 5 star rating), a craft brewery, a wine shop, and a day spa. Village businesses also offer live music, book signings, and wine classes.

 

Fifteen neighborhoods are clustered around the Center and in the surrounding woodlands and fields. Some areas are compact with homes close to one another, while other areas are low density with homes separated by wooded land. Architectural styles are eclectic and range from bungalow and Craftsman to Cape Cod and Colonial. Both existing homes and custom homes are for sale. Prices begin in the high $100,000s, but please verify these prices with a Realtor as they may change.

Residents enjoy tennis courts, a swim and croquet center, nature trails and gardening plots. The nearby Duke Center for Living, which has a contract with Fearrington, has a lap pool and an indoor walking track.

Clubs and groups are many and include a book club, a tennis club, a garden club, a wine club and many more. Many club meetints are held in the Gathering Place (clubhouse). A full-time activities director ensures that residents always have an activity to enjoy or an event to attend.

Fearrington Cares is a non-profit organization funded by Fearrington residents. It provides minor home repairs, transportation to medical offices, computer support and more.

The nearby Jordan Lake State Park offers fishing, sailing, water skiing and camping. Residents can also easily enjoy the amenities of the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

Pittsboro does not have a hospital, but the University of North Carolina hospital is just 14 miles away in Chapel Hill and is accredited by the Joint Commission. It is also a Level I adult trauma center.
