A Bit About Our Neighborhoods

Fearrington, 40 years in the making, offers a variety of neighborhoods, from townhomes to single family homes on wooded lots. Many have  maintenance packages, offering virtually maintenance free living.

Our first homes, dating from the mid-70s to the mid-80s, are nestled on wooded lots along streets named Creekwood, Windstone and Beechmast. In the 1980s, we added two townhouse communities, Villageway and Weathersfield, featuring one and two level homes clustered in intimate closes.

In the 1990s, we added The Woods, an expansive neighborhood of single family homes on generously sized homesites flanking a ring road named Spindlewood. Development now moves to the southern half of Fearrington, starting with Camden Park,adjacent to the Village Center. This pedestrian friendly neighborhood of nearly 300 single family homes features several parks, straight roads flanked by sidewalks and shade trees, alleys with back entrance garages, and density afforded by narrow homesites.We also built Langdon Place Townhomes, a community of large duplex units with attached garages, and adjacent to it, Bush Creek, a large neighborhood of winding roads and midsized homes.

In the 2000’s we opened Whitaker Ridge, featuring large homesites on a stunning wooded hilltop setting. Millcroft Close, smaller single family homes on dense lots arranged by close knit closes, opened. Bradford Place, a neighorhood of midsized homesites and lush landscaping in the southeast corner of Fearrington, started. A Camden Park extension neighborhood called Camden South launched.

In 2013, we launched Rutherford Close, a 12-unit duplex neighborhood next to Camden Park. In 2014, we opened Burke Place, a road of 12 half acre homesites across from Millcroft Close.

Plans are underway for several more neighborhoods, as always responding to our customer needs and wants.
