Meet John & Michelle

John Fernandez & Michelle April have been Fearrington residents since 2011. 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 moved to Fearrington because of its beauty, charm and strong sense of community. Other locations are just developments, but Fearrington is a real community.

What about The Woods neighborhood appealed to you when deciding between Fearrington’s neighborhoods?
The Woods neighborhood appeal was that it was set back from the highway and it felt like the setting of a vacation home in the mountains or at a lake. We like to be outdoors and our outdoor space is beautiful and surrounded by trees.

What do you love most about Fearrington?
What we love most about Fearrington is that the village is so close with the beautiful shops, outstanding restaurants for all occasions, and the outdoor activities at the Roost. We love to walk to the village with our dogs as often as possible and take advantage of what we have right here in our own neighborhood.

What is one of your fond memories of living at Fearrington?
We have two very fond memories. The first was when our neighbors, Chuck and Albina, greeted us, even before we moved in, with a plate of brownies and welcomed us to the neighborhood. The second memory was the first time we attended the Halloween party at the village with the beautifully carved pumpkins, great music, great food and the lively crowd. What a wonderful surprise. It was like a Norman Rockwell painting!
