Fearrington Village Reviews
- Roger J.|January 22, 2017Fearrington is completely different than your typical 55+ community and we love it for that reason. There are several different neighborhoods that each offer various home designs and sizes. The lots are often much bigger, the land is gorgeous and completely unique and the lifestyle is fantastic. We like that this community is a little more remote and quiet.
- Susan L.(Resident/Homeowner)|September 20, 2013We did a ton of research before buying a home for our retirement years. We looked at lots of traditional active adult communities but they all felt so cookie-cutter. Fearrington Village felt special and unique. We absolutely love the community. You will not find anything else like it! Our home is perfect and the setting is so scenic and peaceful. It's really a relaxing and friendly community. It's got most of the amenities you'd find in a 55+ community plus more unique things like the shops and restaurants, the spa, gardens and even the history of the farm property is something very special.
