Meet Ricka

Ricka Samulski has been Fearrington residents since 2013. We asked her what she loved most about living at Fearrington – here’s what she shared about her experience.

What persuaded you to move to Fearrington?
I wanted to move but wasn’t sure where to move to. A friend invited me to her home at Fearrington for lunch. For the first time, I experienced driving down the tree-lined Village Way into the residential area. It was a tranquil and pleasurable experience. Once inside my friend’s home, I inquired if there were any homes for sale in Fearrington. After lunch, we looked on the website, and I learned there were. So, I immediately contacted a realtor I knew. My friend told me about the club offerings and she drove me around Fearrington Village. The rest is history.

What about the Camden Park neighborhood appealed to you when deciding between Fearrington’s neighborhoods?
I wasn’t interested in any specific neighborhood. I did not want the upkeep of a wooded lot. Neither did I want an older home. I preferred a detached home with an attached garage. It just so happened that the home that appealed to me was in Camden Park. I appreciate the close proximity to the market area, medical and fitness facilities and to the Gathering Place.

What do you love most about Fearrington?
The residents are very cordial. To my disbelief, I truly enjoy seeing the belted Galloway cows as I enter and depart Fearrington Village! My grandson enjoys the goats. It is unique for restaurants to have such names as The Belted Goat and Granary. Fearrington Village also has the magnificent Fearrington House Inn! It is nice to attend the events at Roost with neighbors and friends. A quite unique amenity is Fearrington Cares! It is wonderful that residents of Fearrington Village have access to numerous clubs, walking trails, a pool, spa, bookstore, a boutique, the Duke Center for Living, the Duke Primary Care Clinic and the Center for Physical Rehabilitation. Last but not least the proximity to the Triangle area is much appreciated. Fearrington is a great place to live!
