Colvard Farms is a luxury community located in the Triangle built on a large farm with graceful, rolling hills and majestic woods. The community brings a warm sense of luxury and family to the rural North Carolina environment. Potential residents should know that when buying in Colvard Farms, they won’t just get a home but their own nature preserve.
Approximately one third of the community will remain undeveloped to keep Colvard Farms’ natural atmosphere intact. With clusters of hardwoods and forests of pine, the bountiful North Carolina wild life takes residents on an adventure. This countryside charm is conveniently located close to the Research Triangle Park and nearby universities, just between Chapel Hill and Durham. Residents can choose a property in either Chatham or Durham counties.
Colvard Farms was originally a collection of farms, and slowly became a vision of residential development that is economically and environmentally friendly. The original designer of the community, Randall Arendt, planned the subdivisions using a technique known as conservation design.
This enabled the community to protect the land and resources while creating a luxury neighborhood. Every home has been planned to take advantage of the surrounding woodlands and protect the local environment. Bound by Jordan Lake and the public lands, the preservation of Colvard Farms is guaranteed through many generations.
The community offers plenty of options for an active lifestyle that reflect the surrounding environment. Residents enjoy several miles of nature trails for walking, running, hiking, or biking. The New Hope Point Eagle Roost site and the New Hope Audubon Wildlife Observation Area are located close by and warrant frequent visits from residents in the community.
The community recreation center provides opportunities for swimming, tennis, a fitness center and a playground. There are picnic areas for family events, bird watching and fishing. With Colvard Farms’ location next to Jordan Lake, there are also opportunities for residents to go boating, skiing or swimming in the lake.
