I see that 8 of their home sites sit in Durham Co and about another 8 that sit part in Durham county and part in Chatham county. I have NO idea which schools those people whose lots are in both counties are zoned for. ???

But not really something I'll ever had to worry about. If I have a million to drop on a house it will either have more than an acre or be a great old urban mansion.

No kids but his house backs up to the woods.

Colvard Farms: Most of the lots are in Chatham County and only a few to the North are in Durham. Great area with walking trails, pool & rec. house. Very pet friendly area, close to every retail service needed, 15 minutes to airport and five minutes to I-40.
We purchased in Feb. of 2008 after looking at Toll in Orange County, Governors Club, and all of the newer subdivisions in Chatham County decided upon Colvard Farms. Just last week went thru all three of the model homes from Toll in the Hills of Southpoint, and even though they are beautiful, they are not the lasting quality of a Loyd home in Colvard. It's true some of the homes are very expensive, but you could probably close on one of the existing houses for $500-600K. As you might guess we are very happy here.

I'm just curious, how much land do you typically get in this area of Durham? We are building at the Hills of Southpoint and our lot will be just under 1/3 of an acre. We are building one of the Carolina Collection homes, which is the low end of the neighborhood. As you move up into the other, more expensive collections, you also get larger lot sizes. I by no means think the lot is big, but I don't find it too small (but that's just my opinion).

Don't know about other sub-divisions, but at Colvard Farms, the Edgewood Drive street are .25 acre lots, while most of the other streets have .5 to .75 acre lots.

Most of the SDs along 751, Fayetteville, & Herndon (all South of Southpoint) are just under 1/3 of an acre. There are couple that are about .17, but around the 1/3 mark is standard.
