I lived in Chatham County near Fearrington Village (north Chatham, halfway between Chapel Hill and Pittsboro) for six years. In my opinion, the only easy commute is to Chapel Hill or Pittsboro. If you can find a property on the North East part of the county, along 751 near the Southpointe Mall, you will be much closer to RTP and other conveniences. There is a luxury community called Colvard Farms, a DelWeb 55+ called Carolina Preserve and some more rural neighborhoods. You could also look at Governors Club, Governors Forest and Governors Park and Governors Lake which are located a little closer along Farrington Rd. with good access to 64 or 40.
