Hope Valley- Durham Real Estate

Hope Valley- Durham Real Estate

Hope Valley was the first full-fledged country club community in the suburbs of Durham, North Carolina, USA, developed around an 18-hole Donald Ross golf course. Created in 1925-26 just before the stock market crash of 1929 Hope Valley remained a unique rural colony until after WWII. Well outside the city limits Hope Valley was situated between Durham and Chapel Hill, and their university campuses, Duke and UNC Chapel Hill. It was one of North Carolina's first suburbs designed to be completely serviced by the automobile, well beyond urban transportation routes.

Hope Valley's original developers were Jesse Mebane of Greensboro, NC and Walter Sharpe of Burlington, NC (Mebane and Sharpe, Inc.).

The neighborhood is experiencing infill as retiring and moving residents sell their side lots, mid century ranches and investment properties. There have also been some examples of tear down purchases.
