We are moving to the Chapel Hill area. I'm looking for a master-planned community that is convenient to both UNC and downtown Raleigh (within a 25 min. drive). I'd like a community that has a clubhouse and planned family activities.

Any advice?

Do you have a price range you are looking in? Kitts Creek is in Morrisville and probably fits what you are looking for. There are threads in City-Search under Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Cary that have pictures - probably posted about a month ago.
Good luck!

Default Moving?

Yes, you would need to know the price range. I really like the Preserve for big lots and a nice family atmosphere.
The Legacy down the road is my next favorite. It is new and looks like a winner. Price for these lots are in the 80's and up and the lots are close to a acre.
Look carefully at your neighbors !!

What about meadowmont? Moderator cut: real estate ad link

It is in chapel hill, but also wouldn't be relatively convenient to downtown raleigh. It is a community with a pool, playground, plus restaurants, shops, etc I absolutely love it, and meet my mom out there for lunch and to let the kids run around on the playground.

AmosFamily, you have oodles and oodles of options available in your price range. A vast number of homes in the Triangle are in communities like you've described - clubhouse, swimming pools, tennis courts, group activities, etc. This is especially true for homes built within the last 20 years. I think you'll have a harder time finding a place that doesn't have what you're looking for.

What part of Raleigh are you needing to access within 25 minutes? Is it more important to be close to the Raleigh location or UNC?

I am confused by people who want to live in Chapel Hill but want a "master planned community". Why not go to Cary? Can someone explain this oddity?

Colvard Farms, great custom houses in your price range. That's in between Raleigh and Chapel Hill but alot closer to chapel hill than raleigh.

Also, what does "master planned community" mean?
