Short answer: Pretty much all of them. It depends what you're looking for, where you'll be working, how much you want to spend, etc. Give us some clue what you're looking for, and we can probably give you more specific guidance.

There are tons of subdivisions in Chapel Hill. Most are in good areas. I agree with CHTransplant - we need more info. from you. Do you have kids? Are you empty nesters? Do you want land? Don't care? Price point?

Default more information

Thank you, all. More information, 2 kids, 5 and 8. We are looking for 4 BR, some back yard (doesn't have to have a lot) and preferably up to 500K but not above 600K budget. We are both at UNC right now, but looking for an easy access to I-40 and RTP. I have personally read negative reviews on Carrboro High, so was avoiding the south part of the town.
Hope this helps....

Have you looked at Lake Hogan Farms? I'm not sure what high school they feed to, but it seems like a very family-friendly neighborhood. And there are all types of price points in that neighborhood.

It might be slightly above your price point, but Meadowmont might also work and would have good access to RTP.

There are a ton of neighborhoods on the north end of town that CHTransplant or Poppydog can better recommend.

Default Lake Hogan Farms and Meadowmont

Thank you,
we are familiar with Lake Hogan Farms and actually rent close to Meadowmont. I am trying to get more information about other areas as well.

If you've read negative reviews of Carrboro High, chances are they are referring to the "old" Carrboro High. The new high school is highly desirable, and according to some realtors I've spoken with positively influencing RE prices.

Old Carrboro High? What would that be?

The only old Carrboro High I can think of is Lincoln- think it closed in the 60's or 70's!

OP I think you should look around North Chapel Hill at neighborhoods off Weaver Dairy and Homestead. Wexford, Lank Hogan, Cates Farm come to mind. Wexford is considered a walking neighborhood to McDougle Elementary and McDougle Middle. Lots of walkers as well as bike riders. Good schools but all the schools in Chapel Hill/Carrboro District are considered the best in the state.
