Meet Ben & Judith

Ben & Judith Andersson have been Fearrington residents since 2015. We asked them what they loved most about living at Fearrington – here’s what they shared about their experience.

What persuaded you to move to Fearrington?
We had been living in Chapel Hill for some time, looking at various neighborhoods trying to decide where to put down roots. We first came to Fearrington Village with a builder to look at a piece of land. As we drove around the village, everyone was so friendly; we loved the village center and realized that each neighborhood offered different housing styles, sizes and prices.

What about your neighborhood appealed to you when deciding between Fearrington’s neighborhoods?
We came back with our realtor who showed us several different homes in different parts of the village. We both gravitated towards the historic district where the wooded lots are mostly just under an acre, and the homes are contemporary in style. We fell in love with our house in Phase IV with its open-plan design and wonderful skylights, so the light travels all through the home during the course of the day.

What do you love most about Fearrington?
There are so many things to love about Fearrington: the lovely village center, the bookstore, Duke Center for Living, Creekwood trail, the lively community with social groups of all kinds, the open-air Roost for a glass of wine and music, and lovely Camden Park in all seasons. Fearrington is conveniently located close to local shops and with easy access to all the other amenities offered by the Triangle – food, music, universities, hospitals and malls.

What is one of your fond memories of living at Fearrington?
The best thing about living in Fearrington Village is that every day we can walk our dog Ajax in Camden Park where he reads his pee-mails; we can rest on a bench and watch the sunset across the lake – and it is all right here!
