Real Estate Happenings

Fitch Creations, Inc., Fearrington’s exclusive builder and developer, continues to create custom homes that fit the homesite, neighborhood and terrain. Our experienced construction and design teams ensure a pleasant home building experience unlike any other.

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...

Knit Blitz!

Some days are just perfect. Beautiful weather. Birds singing. Bright blue skies. Who could pass up the chance for a walk along the Creekwood trails on a day like this? I lace up my sneakers, step out my back door, and set out for a walk through the woods. But wait! What's this? Sweet little birds hanging from a branch. No, not one of the robins or cardinals that seem to be everywhere this morning, but little crocheted tweets in a rainbow of colors. A few more steps down the trail and there is a... Full Post >

Sarah Susanka Visits Fearrington

Yesterday, on one of the most perfect days of the year, we had the pleasure of attending a reading in the Barn. The “Fearrington Friends of the Arts” group (one of over 100 interest groups for Fearrington residents) hosted Sarah Susanka, author and architect best known for her “Not So Big" message. It was a great turn out of both residents and local community. During her reading, she spoke about designing a house so it is a home, making it a space personal to you and designing it so it...

In their Destiny series, they offer 50 different door styles, in ten different materials (from cherry to bamboo to sleek acrylics) and over fifteen stain options (from natural to nutmeg to smoke grey). With so many choices,... Full Post >

A Beltie Surprise on Easter!

Spring is a season full of color and new life, but my favorite Spring surprise is black and white and adorable all over -- a new baby beltie born on Easter! He doesn't have a name quite yet, but that doesn't make his any less special. Fearrington celebrates every new beltie and we cannot wait to watch him frolic around the front pasture. Come by and visit! Full Post >

Chapel Hill Magazine Recognizes Jon Condoret

Jon Condoret our longtime architect passed away in 2010 but his legacy endures in this beautiful article in Chapel Hill Magazine. Jon designed almost every house at Fearrington and also the ‘new’ structures in the Village Center like the Inn Building and McIntyre’s. French by birth, Jon brought a fresh sensibility to his craft including an embrace of Carolina sunlight. Current architect Brian Cather had the opportunity to work briefly with Jon and when we met Brian we marveled that he... Full Post >
