The Oaks

Chapel Hill in Durham

The Oaks
The Oaks straddles the Durham-Orange county lines. All homes here have Chapel Hill addresses and the many are situated on the golf course of the Chapel Hill Country Club. Some of the homes in the Oaks were built in the 70’s but many others were built in the 80’s and 90’s. Traditional homes dominate but there are also very nice transitionals. The difference between the homes in Durham and those in Orange are in who taxes are paid to and what school children would go to.

If you wander through the Oaks you will eventually reach Meadowmont which also straddles the county line. There are several things that are very unique about Meadowmont. The theme is that it is a “village” and the home sites surround a shopping area with several casual eating places, shops and business offices. The “walkability” also extends to the streets that include sidewalks. Many of the homes are on relatively small lots, reinforcing the village feel. There are also a number of townhouse communities off the village circle that are among the very few really luxurious townhouses in the area. The Meadowmont Club is not a golf club but a swim club.

Maida Vale
Maida Vale is one of three primarily upscale neighborhoods that are at least partially in Durham but in zip code 27517 which gives them a Chapel Hill address. Maida Vale really is unique for this area in that it is a planned and gated community of 60 home sites all to be built in a Mediterranean style. They are quite distinctive and beautiful and all brand new as I write this.
