You might notice something a bit different the first time you visit Briar Chapel: the trees. And, unlike many neighborhoods of today, you won’t be left scratching your head and wondering why the builder had to plow down a perfectly good forest to build a new neighborhood. Instead, you’ll be drawn in by the fact that Briar Chapel has made it its mission to keep the natural landscape intact.
Terramor Home Builders have set out to make this mission a reality by building single-family homes within the neighborhood’s sprawling 1600-acre confines. One day, Briar Chapel will grow to encompass more than 2,000 single- and multiple-family homes. For now, though, the focus is on the build that’s right for you.
There are five single-family home options from Terramor: the Bella, the Serenada, the Hudson, the Jessie, and the Abigail. This selection might seem tight, especially considering the size of Briar Chapel, but you won’t be moving into a cookie-cutter neighborhood. Each model has at least three different elevations, which give the homes different facades and features. Take the Bella, for example. It’s most budget-friendly elevation has a cozy farmhouse feel, complete with a front porch for rocking and sipping lemonade. The “F” elevation’s got a mix of materials — brick, siding, shingles, and shutters — to give it a more custom, ornate finish. Find where your tastes land on the spectrum; there’s sure to be a house to match your vision.
Although these single-family homes will offer you anywhere from three to five bedrooms and plenty of additional living space, one of the great joys of living in Briar Chapel is the list of amenities that the neighborhood provides to its residents. At the heart, you’ll find a clubhouse around which much of the community activities are centered. It’s nearly impossible to survive a North Carolina summer without access to a pool, and you’ll find a picture-perfect one at Briar Chapel’s clubhouse. Whirl around the dual water slides or watch your baby cool off in the toddler splash pad. Of course, you could just take a siesta on one of the pool chairs and get a healthy summer glow.
Aside from the pool, the clubhouse is home to a fitness center with a full stock of cardio machines and free weights, as well as a full line-up of group fitness classes. Briar Chapel also caters to its residents who prefer an outdoor workout with 24 miles of trails that stripe the community. Walk, run, ride your bike, stroll with your dog… and repeat next weekend.
Briar Chapel gives you all that nature has to offer just seven miles south of downtown Chapel Hill, where tasty restaurants, lively music venues, and energetic bars bring together university students and locals. The perfect blend of serenity and city doesn’t come around all that often, so start designing your dream home in Briar Chapel today.
