CHAPEL HILL Area Neighborhoods
Favorite Neighborhoods for Families/Kids

 
Creekwood Chapel Hill / Orange County, NC Neighborhood
Chapel Hill schools!
(approx. 4 min. to Carrboro, 6 min. to downtown Chapel Hill)

The Creekwood neighborhood is conveniently located right off the I-40 exit at Martlin Luther King Jr Blvd / former Airport Rd. just up the road Timberlyne and minutes from downtown Chapel Hill. Easy drive to UNC and Duke and all points in the Triangle via I-40.

These beautifully built, spacious estate homes range from approx. 4,000 - 6,500 square feet and each home is unique while still having an elegant, cohesive neighborhood feel. Creekwood is the home of some of the most beautiful homes in Chapel Hill!

Beautiful hiking locations surround Creekwood and more hiking locations (Duke Forest) are just up the road on Whitfield Rd. in Chapel Hill.

Large, Estate Lots surrounded by beautiful, Protected Natural Areas: Developed in 2000 - 2004, Creekwood is surrounded by protected natural areas. The gorgeous, large, estate size lots range from one to two acres; spacious and lush, yet still neighborly, with sidewalks throughout the neighborhood for running, walking, and biking. The Creekwood neighborhood features beautiful stone walls, sidewalks and wide streets, beautiful classic street lamps, and a large park / common area that backs up to the Stoneridge Tennis Courts and Swimming Pool. (The hills behind the tennis courts are excellent for neighborhood sledding!)

Schools: When Creekwood was first developed, we learned that some of the homes were in the Chapel Hill Schools district, and others were in the Orange County school district. As of 2012, it is possible that this has changed; our research shows Morris Grove as the elementary school for Creekwood, with Smith as the middle school and East Chapel Hill highschool. If the specific school system is important to you, we recommend double-checking which schools are zoned for a specific property/address in Creekwood.

When you spend time at a Creekwood home, it feels like you are in a natural paradise! Our friends who live in Creekwood spend a lot of time relaxing outside, and they have beautiful hiking trails surrounding their gardens. One of the loveliest settings we have seen in Chapel Hill; so peaceful and serene.

"WHY I LOVE MY NEIGHBORHOOD":  Please email us your Top 5 Reasons Why you LOVE your Chapel Hill / Carrboro Neighborhood!  Please let us know the name of your neighborhood and how long you have lived there.  You can sign off with your first name and last initial, or just first name, or just initials.  With the inside scoop from our readers, this will be a great resource for prospective new families to the Chapel Hill/Carrboro/Triangle area to help them find the best fit for their families!
