Even More Great Small Triangle Towns

As more and more people move to the Triangle, space is becoming more of a luxury. Thankfully, there’s still plenty of it available if you go outside Raleigh, Durham, and the other major urban areas! In addition to practicality, these communities have character all their own.

Today, we’re highlighting even more of these great communities.


Located in the scenic, rolling hills of Chatham County, Pittsboro is a former textile town. Relics of the past still dot its downtown – murals, old brick buildings – but coexist with breweries, restaurants, and modern shops. The proximity to Chapel Hill is also ideal for anyone who loves college sports, live music, and the quirky atmosphere of a college town.

Pittsboro is also very close to the Haw River and the future Chatham Park development, which promises to bring a cutting-edge mixed-use area to the city. Tingen can build you a custom home to get you in on the ground floor before property values soar!


Just South of Raleigh is Fuquay-Varina. The town’s funny name is what puts it on the map, but it was originally founded around a mineral spring that supposedly had healing properties. While modern residents know better, they can still enjoy the Mineral Spring Park and a surrounding downtown.

Residents also enjoy easy access to Downtown Raleigh – just 30 minutes up Highway 401 – and plenty of outdoor opportunities just outside town.


Chatham County is popular for its low property taxes and proximity to Chapel Hill. One of its more upscale areas is Fearrington, named after its master-planned resort community, Fearrington Village. Fearrington Village is one of the finest destinations in the area, featuring a spa, world-class dining, and luxury shopping stores. Many businesses there are affiliated with Relais & Châteaux, an association of independently owned businesses dedicated to European-inspired comfort and class.

Outside of the community itself are plenty of rural homesites, both deep in the forest and along the Haw River and Jordan Lake.
