Does anyone have any opinions good or bad (if it's so bad it might get pulled please DM me)

They are cute older cottages around NC54 and 15/501. From what I understand they are considered part of Chapel Hill's history. I like the idea of living in a cottage and I don't want to buy a house right now. This is different than renting someone's house because it has an actual property manager and is part of a complex, but a complex of cottages. Thanks

I think they're too cute and in an awesome area. There are some talks about redeveloping that area though. I'm not sure what the current plans are (at one point they wanted to put homes, condos and new apartments there), but it's definitely something to look into before you commit to making a home there.

There was some discussion of this a few months ago that might help. Not sure if anything has changed since then - it's been out of the news.

Thanks everyone - that's really a shame. I wonder what will happen with the property.

Right now it seems nothing is happening with it, but clearly a developer has his eyes on it.

I lived one street from Glen Lennox as a teenager and made a fortune baby sitting there. From what I understand very little has changed interior wise. They were pretty much all alike. Now they are better landscaped and quite attractive. yes they are as old as dirt but very charming and certainly do serve a purpose. I hope Glen Lennox stays around for a long time. New is not always better.

My wife and I lived in Glen Lennox for a year in 2006-2007, and found it to be pretty nice. They have several floor plans; we were in one of the smaller (850sf?) 2 bedroom apartments. They also have renovated and unrenovated units. The unrenovated units are cheaper. However, the renovated units come with a washer/dryer and dishwasher and have a better, larger, more useful kitchen layout.

When I was there, there was a Harris Teeter right across the street, walking to go grocery shopping was actually pretty nice. Now the HT is closed and has been reincarnated as a Fresh Market (which has nice stuff but IMO is too expensive for everyday shopping.)

It's great from a transportation perspective. First, lots of buses. My wife worked at UNC hospital and could ride the bus there for free (saving lots of money on parking passes.) Second, it's on the east side of Chapel Hill, close to Hwy 54, so getting to the rest of the triangle was a breeze, which was important since I work in RTP.
