A Bit About Our Neighborhoods

Fearrington offers a variety of neighborhoods, from townhomes to single family homes on wooded lots. Many come with maintenance packages, offering virtually maintenance free living.

Dating from the late 1970s to the mid-1980s, we built our earliest homes, nestled on wooded lots along streets named Creekwood, Windstone and Beechmast. In the 1980s, we constructed two townhouse communities, Villageway and Weathersfield, featuring one and two level townhomes 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.

In the 1990s we started our most successful neighborhood ever, Camden Park. Immediately next to the Village Center, this neighborhood of nearly 300 homes features straight roads flanked by sidewalks and shade trees, alleys with back entrance garages, and narrow homesites.We also built Langdon Place Townhomes, a community of large duplex units with attached garages.

With the exception of one or two remaining homesites, we’ve just completed Millcroft Close, Bush Creek, Bradford Place and Camden South - all single family neighborhoods in the south half of Fearrington. Several active neighborhoods remain, and several more about to start development.
