We invite you to explore Fearrington Village, home to nearly 2,000 residents, including active retirees, young families and working professionals, minutes from the college town of Chapel Hill, NC. We offer diverse neighborhoods, from dramatic wooded estates to walkable neighborhoods close to the amenities of our Village Center.
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.
View brand new and existing homes in all Fearrington neighborhoods – each built with pride by Fitch Creations, Inc. for over 40 years.
Fearrington is also near Raleigh, Durham, and the Research Triangle Park. The Triangle is ranked nationally as one of the best to live, yet Fearrington’s tranquil farm-like setting feels removed from the ordinary – the best of both worlds.
If you are visiting from out of town, enjoy the convenience and comfort of The Fearrington House Inn during your stay. We look forward to hearing from you!
