The Last Camden

It is bittersweet to see the last house come to completion in South Camden. Since the first house went up in the 1990s, Camden is one of our most popular neighborhoods and it is so convenient to the Village Center and Camden Park. While it is sad to complete the Camden neighborhood, 4016 Macon is a wonderful house to end with! The house combines an open floorplan and a formal dining room and a third bedroom that would make a nice study. We also put some of our favorite cabinets in both the... Full Post >

Rutherford Walk Through

The first Rutherford Close homes have been framed and sheathed! This morning was the perfect time to walk through the homes to do collective troubleshooting and tweaking for the next Rutherford homes. Walking through a space is always a different experience from seeing it on paper, and the walk through always yields improvements, whether its a better place to put the air return or a way to configure a closet for more hanging space. - Greg, VP Fitch Creations, Inc.

First House Rises at Rutherford Close

Who doesn't love the smell of new construction! Exciting too for us after years of planning is seeing this inaugural home in our newest neighborhood, Rutherford Close, come to life. Here you're looking from the front living room through the framing and - hard to see - past large windows to an amazing pasture view. - Greg, VP Fitch Creations, Inc. Full Post >

Autumn Light

Our showcase home 4124 Knolls Close with afternoon light steaming through clerestory windows in kitchen. Beautiful lighting and views! - Greg, VP Fitch Creations, Inc. Full Post >

First Home Underway at Rutherford Close

The road is done, the heavy grading machinery are gone, the banks are seeded, and we are starting our first home at Rutherford Close! The footings went in last week. In the picture, you'll see the walking path abutting Rutherford Close that weaves through pastures, trees and park to the shops, restaurants, cafe and beer garden of Fearrington's Village Center. All just a quarter mile away! - Greg, VP Fitch Creations, Inc. Full Post >

Kayaking In Our Backyard

In under 20 minutes from leaving Fearrington Minerva and I were in our new (used) kayaks paddling in a beautiful cove on Jordan lake. Within 5 minutes, we had spotted three Osprey, one mature Bald Eagle and several Great Blue Herons. Whether you enjoy sailing, kayaking, trail walking, fishing or swimming, this State Park is right in our backyard – take advantage of it! - Laura, Real Estate Manager Full Post >

Newest Neighborhood is Taking Form

Our grading contractors have been hard at work the past few weeks creating the road and homesites for Fearrington's newest neighborhood, Rutherford Close. Road curb and gutter is in, as is the base layer of asphalt. Next week the final course of asphalt is laid. And with the road in, the central community park is now defined - and contains some wonderful mature trees. Only twelve homes will be built, and so incredibly close to the Village Center. Until the heavy machinery is gone, Rutherford... Full Post >

Construction Photos

Many of our custom home clients do not live locally, making it hard for them to schedule visits. I usually send photos each week so they can see the progress of their Fearrington home under construction. It is a great way for them to be informed and for me to answer any questions that might come up during construction. After working with clients on the house selections in the beginning, where there are so many details, it is also nice for me to see how things come together, like a puzzle... Full Post >

Working, Living and Playing at Fearrington

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending the Thai New Year Dinner at The Granary, one of the Cooks and Books events sponsored by McIntyre’s Books.  The author of Real Thai, Nancie McDermott, spoke about her books, her life and her passion for food, as well as, her wonderful insight into Thai cooking, Thai culture and Thai people -– and even a bit of Southeast Asia’s geography and history.  Colin Bedford and his team outdid themselves with 10 different Thai dishes, from...
