Historic Homes

Cities & Neighborhoods

One of the best parts of living in the Triangle is the wide range of communities available to call home. Here you can live in a high-rise condo or loft apartment in the middle of the city or out in the country where your closest neighbor might be miles away.

Durham County

Durham County is unique in more ways than one, but one of the more interesting aspects of this second most populous county is that it is home to only one city, the City of Durham, also known as the City of Medicine. But don’t think for a second that this is not a diverse community.

Orange County




When Orange County is mentioned, most people in the Triangle immediately think of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. While it is a huge component of the County’s image, residents know there is so much more than UNC. In fact, Chapel Hill isn’t even the seat of county government, the beautiful small town of Hillsborough holds that distinction. And you can’t forget Carrboro—easily one of the Triangle’s hippest communities filled with art galleries and dining options that cities twice its size would love to have.

Wake County






The Triangle’s largest county both in terms of land mass and population, Wake County is home to more than 1,000,000 people and 12 different municipalities. Even in this heavily populated place, there are still plenty of options that allow you to feel like you’re miles from any hustle and bustle of the city.
