We are all interested in health, happiness and a balanced life for ourselves and our families. Chatham Park has a wide variety of resources to enjoy such a lifestyle. More than just a new home development, our 7,068-acre live, work, play, learn master-planned community offers you the conveniences to pursue a balanced approach to your life. Here are some of the many ways that life in Chatham Park can help you achieve healthy, emotionally balanced living in 2022!
Work and Family
As working remotely becomes mainstream, Chatham Park ensures that you have the necessary resources to successfully balance work and family. Thoughtfully designed floorplans from our nine new home construction builders include features such as dedicated home offices and open-living floor plans. Bonus rooms, lofts, and flex space can serve as study break areas or homeschool classrooms for the kids.
We even offer 5G Fiber Internet from CenturyLinkÆ (now Lumen Technologies) to each home within Vineyards at Chatham Park, giving you the connectivity needed to achieve both your personal and professional goals.
Chatham Park is also proud to host Garman Homes’ award-winning America At Home Study Concept Home. This national study of adults ages 25-74 with annual household incomes of $50,000 or more was conducted in two waves during the pandemic to gain a better understanding of all that new home and community design requires in a post-pandemic world. We invite you to tour this innovative design – The Barnaby – and get inspired on how you can accomplish a work/family balance in Chatham Park.
For those who commute to the office, Chatham Park is also conveniently located to interchanges and ramps for Highway 64, and a mere 30-minute ride to Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU).
Eating and Exercise
Chatham Park promotes health by providing an array of restaurant and exercise options. For example, you can enjoy delicious, healthy dishes from several local restaurants in Penguin Place and MOSAIC. Vegetarians will delight in the Roasted Parsnip Soup, full of veggies, from The Root Cellar and those who are staying away from gluten can order a crustless pizza bowl and side salad from Marco’s Pizza. Additional eateries with vegetarian and gluten-free options include Mi Cancun and Jersey Mike’s subs, with more restaurants coming soon. If you are looking to cook from scratch, you can purchase your choice of fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs from several farmers markets in the area including the Pittsboro Farmers Market, the Chatham Mills Farmers Market, and the Fearrington Farmers Market.
We are excited about our new pollinator garden, eight beehives located at the community’s Water Recovery Center, whose approximately 250,000 tiny tenants help provide the pollination for that wonderful produce. As Chatham Park’s development continues, additional pollinator gardens will be installed as part of a healthy ecosystem. These honeybees will also produce local honey – a delicious food with major health benefits.
Chatham Park also boasts a variety of amenities guaranteed to encourage a healthy exercise routine and an extra helping of fresh air. More than 2,000 acres will be dedicated to parks and open space in addition to over 30 miles of scenic walking, biking and multimodal trails. The entire family will benefit from our 10-acre Knight Farm Community Park that includes a playground, covered pavilion with picnic tables and restrooms, measured walking trail, large multi-use field, splash pad, and dog park. Looking for more? Access to Haw River and Jordan Lake provides a slew of outdoor activities including boating, fishing, camping, and water sports. Plans are also underway for a YMCA as well as Paddles, a swim and pickleball amenity featuring a six-lane competition-style pool with a slide, a kiddie pool, and a concession stand for future swim meets.
Art and Science
To support a healthy, balanced lifestyle, Chatham Park plans to transform mundane elements of everyday life (neighborhood trashcans, water tanks, benches, etc.) into art pieces to create aesthetically pleasing and useable community spaces. Distinctive installations of art will be used to define the boundaries and many entrances to Chatham Park and its neighborhoods. Other infrastructure elements such as roadways, bridges, stair towers, and community building entrances are designed to become iconic symbols within the Pittsboro art community. Street furnishings like bike racks and signage will also be transformed to give locals a taste of Pittsboro artists’ unique work in a utilitarian setting.
Balancing the aesthetic, Chatham Park also provides access to high-quality medical care for the Pittsboro and surrounding communities. From local primary care and healthcare specialists to medical facilities such as UNC Health Urgent Care and UNC Rheumatology, Chatham Park offers state-of-the-art options for your physical health.
Additionally, Chatham Park has made a commitment to environmental, economic and social sustainability by promoting a clean, greener lifestyle. For example, Chatham Park has partnered with Southern Energy Management to ensure the best quality of its homes. Together, Chatham Park and Southern Energy Management are implementing ecoSelect® Plus, a program that focuses on increasing energy efficiency, provides support, and assures quality control and consumer confidence. As a result, our new smart homes offer 35% more energy-efficiency than other area homes.
Chatham Park’s focus on clean technology extends to the entire community with its efforts in renewable energy and water conservation. The Chatham Park solar farm spans more than 46 acres, and this 5-megawatt solar installation generates enough electricity to power approximately 750 homes. Taxpayers in Pittsboro will receive significant savings from this effort. Chatham Park is also revolutionizing the way communities think of water by developing a technologically advanced water treatment plant on site – one of only two in the United States. This concept takes water from being a disposable product that is used only once, to a renewable recyclable resource that can be harvested and reused repeatedly minimizing impurities to surface waters. Over time it will become more expensive to treat raw water for non-potable uses, so this is also an investment for future generations.
Driving through Chatham Park is driving through one of the most forward-thinking communities in the nation. Their commitment to bringing this technology goes back almost 15 years, during the initial planning stages. The combination of sustainable living, art and science installations, office and medical facilities as well as entertainment and outdoor activities, makes this community a perfect place to find a healthy lifestyle for your entire family, both physically and mentally.
