Southern Village Homes
Thinking about buying a home in Chapel Hill? Consider Southern Village, a walkable community only two miles from downtown and UNC, with tree-lined streets, neighborhood parks and trails, and its own “downtown” with restaurants, movie-theater, grocery, bank, fitness center and more. This unique community continues to be one of the Triangle’s best-selling neighborhoods, and it’s no wonder.
Designed for people, not cars, this New-Urbanist neighborhood hassidewalks that lead to Scroggs Elementary School, the Southern Village Racquet & Swim Club, Market Street and the Chapel Hill Greenway system. Neighbors regularly get together on front porches, while their children play in the front yards.
Summertime outdoor movies, free Sunday evening concerts, and a weekly Farmer’s Market are held on The Green, where neighbors and friends can catch up and enjoy outdoor entertainment. The Club offers a popular children’s summer camp, keeping them happy and busy during the summer months.
A free city bus runs from Southern Village to downtown Chapel Hill, making commutes to UNC and downtown convenient and cost effective. There are also bike lanes connecting the neighborhood to downtown.
