One of the great things here is that there are school buses for all schools, all grades. There are still parents who drive their kids so that they can get a little more time in the morning. My kids took the bus along with most of the others in the neighborhood.
The older areas of Chapel Hill have lush green vegetation, well established landscaping and gorgeous hardwood trees that required no maintenance.
The house you've chosen is lovely; I think of it as a California style house from that era--well designed with lots of light.
Feel free to call me with any questions.
