Meadowmont has a charming history, tree-lined streets, and beautiful old stone walls. The neighborhood sits on 435 acres of land that was once owned by the DuBose family. The DuBose's owned the land surrounding what is now Meadowmont; about 1,250 acres. Their estate, now known as the "DeBose House," was built in 1933 and is still in its original location near the neighborhood and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The neighborhood was built in 1999 and is named after what the DeBuse personally called their home as it was on a hill surrounded by beautiful meadows below.
The rest of the acreage was turned into The Oaks neighborhood and the Chapel Hill Country Club. The Meadowmont neighborhood, keeping its history, is a reflection of Southern homes and hospitality. There are large front porches, multiple community parks, and wide sidewalks. The neighborhood is made up of single-family home and townhomes that are in several architectural styles, such as craftsman or colonial. Down the street is Meadowmont Village, which features popular shops and restaurants.
