The Triangle is growing extremely fast, mostly due to a job boom in the science and tech sector. But even aside from jobs, the region has a lot to offer! There’s a vibrant arts scene (including some of the best concert venues in the state), world-renowned universities, great dining, and a location that puts the mountains and the beach just hours away.
Since 2010, Wake County alone – home to Raleigh and Cary – has grown by over 171,000 people! This growth has drove rent and home prices in Raleigh and Durham sky high, and newcomers often look to one of the capital’s many outlying communities.
If you’re moving to the Raleigh/Durham area, you should consider Chatham Forest! This neighborhood of single-family homes in Pittsboro offers a great combo of custom designs and rural living.
Chatham Forest is located in northeastern Pittsboro, around 45 minutes from Raleigh and Durham. Our neighborhood is specifically located on Chatham Forest Drive, which is just minutes from downtown Pittsboro.
Originally a humble farming and manufacturing town, Pittsboro has experienced a renaissance similar to many other small North Carolina towns. Old brick buildings house trendy restaurants and independent stores. EV charging stations sit next to old town squares. It’s a town looking to tomorrow that’s enamored with the best parts of its past.
In Pittsboro, you obviously have access to everything the Triangle has to offer. But you can also find a lot of great activities right in your backyard!
Pittsboro is close to Jordan Lake and the Haw River, two of the most popular outdoor spots in the Triangle. Jordan Lake hosts almost 14 miles of beautiful hiking trails, swim beaches, 1,000 campsites, and boating and fishing areas. From your backyard in Chatham Forest, you can make it there in 10 minutes!
If you’re looking for something a little less naturey – maybe a date or remote work studio – Pittsboro is also the site of Chatham Park, a massive mixed-use development on the eastern side of the city. Upon completion, Chatham Park will host restaurants, breweries, green spaces, and arts venues…and it will all be minutes away.
