As a Chapel Hill Realtor, I'm excited to start seeing homes completed in Westfall, the area's newest home community. With its rolling wooded lots and proximity to town, Westfall offers a peaceful setting with modern amenities.
The half-acre homesites allow for beautiful custom home builds that maximize indoor-outdoor living. The resort-style pool, walking trails, and other community amenities provide recreation and ways to connect with neighbors.
