Just outside of Chapel Hill is a new community designed to inhabit the land without inhibiting its true nature, revealing its wonder gradually, intentionally. With a landscape of approximately 900 acres of open space, oak hammocks, creeks, wetlands, and ridgelines of native rock offering views in every direction.
Diverse neighborhoods of authentic architecture, new schools, community parks, the Briar Club with its pools, waterslide and fitness facility, and a future village center are all woven among the expanse of trees and boulder fields, connected deliberately by an intuitive 24-mile trail network.
Briar Chapel is one of the largest new-home “green” communities in the Triangle with homebuilders that comply with the new home construction requirements and third party testing contributing to a healthy living environment for current residents and for future generations. Send me information now!
