Winmore Chapel Hill

Real Estate Agent with Triangle Area Real Estate 146786




It's pretty easy to find all houses for sale on the Internet but not so easy to find out about the neighborhoods. I have had clients come to town in love with a home they saw on line and then be crushed because the neighborhood is not what they want at all. I hope my neighborhood videos help you see what our neighborhoods are really like.

Today we are going to take a tour of Winmore, a Carrboro neighborhood with a Chapel Hill address with my client Sharon. Sharon, her husband and son have lived in France for the past 12 years .When they decided to move back to the US they chose Chapel Hill out of anywhere in the country because of the good schools and wonderful college town quality of life.


Winmore is a all green built sustainable living neighborhood. When completed there will be 86 town homes, 96 single family homes and 20 live/work units with commercial space on the first floor and residential living on the 2nd and 3rd floors. The neighborhood features walking trails, a community garden, pool, playground an even it’s own apple orchard.


Sharon really likes the idea of living in a neighborhood that will help protect our environment and conserve energy but is also stylish and interesting. After we tour Winmore we’ll stop by the Carolina Cafe, have some lunch and talk over our day because real estate is hungry work!

Good video! I can't believe you got your client to go on video after the tour. Keep up the good work!
