The big cities are what draw people to NC. There’s Asheville, the “San Fran of the East Coast,” with its art scene, stunning views, and inherent eccentricity. There’s Charlotte, with its amazing nightlife and bustling downtown. And of course there’s the Triangle, home to the state’s world-renowned universities and many of its strongest companies.
But the story of North Carolina is really in its small towns, and as costs of living in major urban centers continue to escalate, these small towns are getting more attention. Sitting on the outskirts of Raleigh and Chapel Hill, Pittsboro is one such town. Pittsboro’s small-town feel within spitting distance of the Triangle gives you the full spectrum of the NC experience.
Potterstone Village is a community of 192 single-family homes and one of the best places to settle down in Pittsboro. Here’s why you should consider living in Potterstone Village.
Potterstone Village is about 5 minutes South of downtown Pittsboro. The community is centered around common areas and sidewalks, with the entire neighborhood being fully walkable! There is also a pond fully stocked with fish and a community swimming pool, and hiking trails are within walking distance.
The community is professionally managed and governed by a HOA, but dues are quite reasonable: $154 per quarter, low for the Triangle.
Anchored around a charming and well-preserved downtown, Pittsboro is everything that makes small-town NC special. Old brick buildings and street festivals give a retro feel to the town that is hard to resist. But the small businesses and dining scene are decidedly modern: you can pick up small batch craft beer at Carolina Brewery, enjoy farm-to-table cuisine at The Root Cellar, or view galleries from local artists at The NC Arts Incubator.
Work in DTR, Durham, or the Research Triangle Park? No problem! Pittsboro is around 40 minutes from the Triangle’s primary urban areas, giving you a manageable commute at a price significantly lower than what you’d pay to live in the city.
Pittsboro is also within minutes of major interstates, so a day trip to the beach or the mountains is no problem. You’re just over 3 hours from Asheville and under 3 hours from the beach!
