Hillsborough is widely considered one of the best places to live in NC, with its rich history as the county seat of Orange County, beautiful setting along the Eno River, and fast access in either direction to RTP or the Triad. From Last Friday's Art Walks to live music, farmers markets, festivals to food trucks, there is always something going on in Hillsborough. Its become a tourist destination with a small town feel, a haven for artists and writers and a fabulous place to live. Youll find architecturally significant historic homes near downtown and a wide collection of diverse home styles from planned communities to individual farms set on the lush rolling hills of Orange County. Check out some of my favorite Hillsborough neighborhoods. Curator: Pat Dillon
Best Homes for Sale in Woodcroft Curator: Michele Wright
With cul-de-sacs brimming with colonials and Cape Cods priced below $300,000, Woodcroft is a true staple of Southwest Durham. It's nestled between Sutton Station and Woodcroft Shopping Center, both of which offer shopping and restaurants (including two of my favorite comfort food dives, Randy's Pizza and Nantucket Grill - obviously the clam chowder is fantastic, but the lemon cake is their best kept secret!!!!) Oh, and then there are the walking trails that connect to the America Tobacco Trail.
