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…

About the American Tobacco Trail, Durham NC

It’s hard to live in the Triangle area without hearing about the American Tobacco Trail (ATT), but it’s more fun using it.

Over time, trucks replaced the trains, and the trains eventually discontinued the route. The tracks were removed in…
