Original Cottages

Set among the towering pines and oaks, original cottages are surrounded by nature. A short walking distance from the community commons, these cottages are located around the one-mile loop of Harkness Circle.

Our smartly designed cottages are one- and two-bedroom homes that offer lifestyle variety, as some feature a den or Carolina room addition. All historic cottages offer a deck or sunroom to better enjoy the moderate North Carolina climate.

Original cottages are grouped together in settings of three or four homes. Seven floor plans range in size from 678-1,280 square feet. Single entrance fees range from $177,200 to $351,600.

Our renovation team has invested time and effort in selecting home finishes that are high quality and have broad appeal. We are excited to collaborate with incoming residents to create a beautiful space that feels like home.
