Since 1974, we’ve been crafting Fearrington Village near Chapel Hill, NC one satisfied homeowner at a time. R.B. Fitch is the developer and builder. As a resident and an integral part in the Village’s day-to-day activities, you can see his initial vision through the natural development of the community.

At Fearrington you’ll benefit from one of the most experienced design and construction teams in the industry. From your first meeting with our sales team to selecting a homesite and initial home design with our Real Estate General Manager, Laura Morgan, you’ll feel confident in our hands.

Our Building Process



Come for a visit! Our real estate team will show you the community we’ve created, including the Village Center, neighborhoods, homesites, homes, and community amenities. Whether you want a large wooded lot or the ability to walk to the Village Center, we’ll help you select the right homesite.



Work with our on-site architectural designer to create your ideal home layout and exterior. Then customize the interior in our Design Center. We have everything you need — flooring, countertops, tiles, cabinets, faucets, lighting, window treatments, and paint decks.



Our general contractor handles all permitting, inspections, and work scheduling, and we keep you posted on the construction progress. Our construction crews have built every home at Fearrington, and will build your home with the same care and dedication. Our service warranty coordinator provides service and support, even after the final walk-through.



We’re always so excited to give you the keys to your new home at move-in time. Unique among developers, Fitch Creations, Inc. is based here and our door is always open, whether you need a trade recommendation or just want to say hi!

Kind Words

Upon beginning our tour of Fearrington we were immediately impressed with the uniqueness of the village. We toured the model homes and various parcels of vacant land and by the end of the day we were negotiating to purchase a lot.”

One of the many joys we are experiencing at Fearrington is the very skilled, dedicated, caring and friendly staff that you employ.”

Fearrington Resident T.N.


Relocating from New England and building a house all at the same time could have been overwhelming, but the Fitch team made the whole process a joy. They were on budget and on time. More importantly, they supported my project with enthusiasm, lots of helpful suggestions, and personal attention. I love my house!”

Fearrington Resident M.R.


In one of our initial conversations, Laura assured us that if we liked the concept of Fearrington Village, they could build us a home that reflected our wishes and our desires in every way. That is exactly what happened – and we had fun in the process!”

Fearrington Resident T.B.


One great aspect of the selections process is that, if you wish, all of it can be done right at Fitch Creations. You sit around the big table with the decision lists that Paige has prepared, or wander around the room looking at the many items and catalogues on hand, or ask Paige to get samples of this or that.”
