A tight-knit and visually appealing community, Laurel Hill is certain to delight anyone with a penchant for natural beauty not infringing upon convenience.
Less than 10 minutes from US-501, UNC Chapel Hill and the North Carolina Botanical Gardens, this centrally located neighborhood truly provides the amenities of town with the peace of a rural location.
Originally developed in the 1950s, Laurel Hill predominantly features large, single-family homes. For the most part, these homes are priced quite competitively; ranging from 10 to 60 years old.
The area was developed after two ponds were built for family recreation in the neighborhood and are still attracting homeowners today. Additionally, nearby Crabtree Creek presents another option for water recreation.
The banks of the creek create a unique climate in the area, which is why so much flora generally native to only mountains, is also native to the neighborhood. In fact, Laurel Hill was actually named for one of these plants—the Mountain Laurel—which still grows there today.
In addition to the ponds and creek, Laurel Hill is in close proximity to Laurel Hill Park and Crabtree Creek Greenway, providing ample opportunity for outdoor fun- enjoy beautiful trails for hiking and walking, or open spaces for picnicking and sports.
If outdoor play isn't your thing, don't forget Laurel Hill is just minutes from the middle of Chapel Hill offering a great variety of dining, shopping and attractions.
Some of the highly rated schools in the area include East Chapel High School and Glenwood Elementary school, perfect for those looking to raise a family.
Laurel Hill is known for its sense of community. In fact, The Laurel Hill Homeowners Association works to foster this sense with community events including New Years party and Fourth of July parade.
Membership with the LHHOA also grants homeowners access to the neighborhood Clubhouse for holding events of up to 70 people.
Another nod to the neighborhood's natural beauty, the Laurel Hill Garden Club works to beautify the area through landscaping and educates younger gardening enthusiasts on the subject. This club meets during the summer months and awards several neighborhood yards the honor of "yard of the month."
Any family looking for a neighborhood endowing their children with a sense of community and allow them ample space to enjoy beautiful natural landscapes need look no further than Laurel Hill.
This stunning neighborhood is close enough to great shopping and eating in the city, yet removed enough to enjoy a suburban lifestyle; Laurel Hill truly strikes a great balance.
