Which neighborhoods in Chapel Hill, Raleigh and Durham?

Jump to last reply

Going for our 2nd time to NC in May. Staying at Fearrington again, which we loved.

Contemplating retiring here someday (not for another 5 yrs or so). I like Fearrington alot, but this time want to see more of the area. Didn't get to see Raleigh or Durham last time. Think they might be way too big for our tastes, but doesn't hurt to look. Thought I wanted an older home until I saw the homes at Fearrington, so you never know.

Are there certain neighborhoods we should focus on in Chapel Hill, Raleigh and Durham? I recall people mentioning Five Points in Raleigh. Our price range is @ 375K. Looking for a modest 3 BR, 1 1/2 bath home - @ 1,500 - 1,700 sq ft. Ideally close to town and in a safe neighborhood.

Any help would be much appreciated. These areas are just too big to be aimlessly driving around. Do plan to take in some of the natural beauty though - Jordan Lake, Duke Gardens... it's beautiful country.
