The popularity of Chapel Hill has created a unique opportunity for those wanting a move-in ready home from some of the area’s most respected builders. The community is selling all four of its current model row homes while developers begin building five new models for its recently opened Phase III, The Estates.
“The opening of its third phase is a direct result of the success enjoyed by the initial phases of the community,” said Bill Gerue with Weichert Realtors Graham-Welch, who markets the community. “New homes are already being built in Phase III and Phase II has been selling very quickly. There are still choice home sites available starting at $68,500.”
