Chapel Ridge – A Green Place to Call Home

For over 40 years, Southstar Communities has been committed to responsible land use, environmental protection, and the conservation of its communities to ensure that they will be enjoyed for generations to come. The Chapel Ridge community in particular has set a new standard of commitment towards that philosophy. The stunning golf course community, located near Chapel Hill, North Carolina, is currently certified in several categories of the Audubon International's Cooperative Sanctuary for Golf Courses program. Chapel Ridge also boasts a wildlife habitat, “no spray” mandates around wetland areas to reduce harmful chemical use, as well as a storm water runoff management system to help eliminate pollution.

While some developers try to squeeze every inch of space, Chapel Ridge has over 40 percent open, non-disturbed space, which not only makes for a more beautiful community, but also reduces environmental stress. Currently, there are five brand-new, featured homesites at Chapel Ridge that offer up to 3+ acres with expansive boundaries. Priced from $49,900, these sites are available with limited-time finance options and closing specials, with some of the largest acreage available in the Chapel Hill area.
