Croasdaile Farms homes for sale

Just minutes from the busy downtown Durham lies Croasdaile Farms, a residential development that offers quiet, country living with easy access to all the city has to offer.

Croasdaile Farm was built on the site of a sprawling 1,100-acre dairy farm of the same name, established in the early 20th century. Over the decades, while the farm continued to operate, the city of Durham grew up nearby, and the area took on an increasingly urban and suburban feel.

To meet the needs of a growing community, the farmland was subdivided and development began in the 1980s. However, a strict set of architectural and community-wide standards were established to preserve the rural feel and natural beauty of the land.

Today, Croasdaile Farm is a planned residential community offering a variety of residences, commercial space, and amenities. Its close proximity to downtown Durham, Duke University and Duke University Medical Center, as well as its easy access to I-85 and Research Triangle Park, makes the community convenient as it is attractive.

For anyone looking to move to Croasdaile Farm, the development offers a mix of existing single-family homes and new homes being built by some of the area’s top builders, including David Weekley Homes and Homes by Dickerson.

Existing homes average roughly 4,000 square feet, with four bedrooms and and 3.5 baths. Homes are as small as 2,300 square feet and are as large as 6,300 square feet. They sit on spacious, tree-lined lots of one acre or more.

In 2016, 30 homes in the development were sold, with a sale price ranging from $650,000 to $750,000.

Currently, phases 6 and 7 are in development, with lots of up to 1.2 acres in size, some with high elevations, making them ideal for estate homes. As of this writing, just eight lots were still available for sale. Lots start at $255,000.

New Developments

Phases 6 and 7 are not the end of the Croasdaile Farm development plan. A new phase, called Crystal Lake at Croasdaile Farm, will be designed for active adults, featuring single-family homes and townhomes set around a picturesque, 12-acre lake. This community will offer amenities like a fishing pier, walking trails, and a picnic pavilion.

Crystal Lake properties will be available starting in 2018.
