Ironwoods

Ironwoods

Ironwoods is a subdivision centrally located in Chapel Hill.  It is located between Seawell Elementary and Carrboro Elementary.  It is down the street from Smith Middle School and Chapel Hill High.

The neighborhood was built in the late 1980s and 90s.  A few houses have recently been built on some of the remaining lots.  The homes were built by local custom builders and one national builder (M/I Homes).  There are approximately 150 homes that range in sizes, types and styles.  The lots range in size from .25 to .75 with the bulk of them being in the .3 range.  This neighborhood is hilly so you can find basement houses.  The neighborhood backs to Bolin Creek with 10 miles of hiking and biking trails and is across the street from the Horace Williams Tract (renamed Chapel Hill North).  There is a fantastic walking trail through Chapel Hill North.  If you are adventurous, you can go from Chapel Hill North to Bolin Creek and really enjoy the trials in Chapel Hill.  You can also walk to Bolin Creek and into Carrboro.  It is a great walk!
