Welcome to Briar Chapel

Briar Chapel is a large, planned luxury community located south of Chapel Hill, being developed by Newland Corp. Residents in this eco-friendly neighborhood enjoy a lush landscape painted with extensive walking and biking trails, parks, community gardens, natural woodlands, and creeks.

When residents of this neighborhood aren’t enjoying the North Carolina wilderness, Briar Chapel provides a wide variety of amenities for residents who enjoy a peaceful, active lifestyle. Briar Chapel is the largest green community in the Triangle, with EPA Energy Star-certified homes in a variety of floor plans from 1,350 to 1,999 square feet.

As a resident of Briar Chapel, you’ll have access to the LEED-Certified Briar Chapel Club House and all of the related amenities, and most homes come with a 2-car garage and community landscape maintenance.
Families with children will also benefit from the two onsite schools, Woods Charter and Margaret Pollard Middle School. Though secluded in nature, the community is just minutes from downtown Chapel Hill, UNC-Chapel Hill, and Research Triangle Park. The community’s location is convenient for residents who work in these areas or want to enjoy an active, urban lifestyle.

For those 55+, the Encore neighborhood within Briar Chapel features one-story homes, a private clubhouse, and other amenities.

At the entrance to Briar Creek, Newland Corp. is adding an upscale commercial district known as The Veranda, with cafes, restaurants, a pre-school, and several services (pharmacy, dermatology, optometry, haircare, and more.)

Community Amenities

A healthy and active lifestyle is encouraged by over 24 miles of walking and biking trails, four different parks, as well as a dog park for your furry friends.
The award-winning Briar Club is also available to residents. This LEED Silver-certified building is filled with a well-equipped fitness center that overlooks a pair of luxurious salt-water pools. A full-time activities director ensures indoor and outdoor events are consistently scheduled in the club and its outdoor amphitheater, ranging from local culinary creations to mountain bike races.
