Briar Chapel located in Chapel Hill is one of the most popular master planned communities in the Raleigh – Durham region, well known for its sustainable green living and an amenity-rich lifestyle focused on a healthier way of life.

The very nature of the place was the inspiration for the community. From the beginning, the Briar Chapel community was designed as a place in harmony with nature. The builders preserved approximately 900 acres of open space, slopes and streambeds, and thousands of trees. The result is a more natural habitat for wildlife – and a healthier lifestyle for the people who call it home.
