While visiting The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill a few weeks ago, I left the hotel early in the morning to catch a glimpse of the surrounding area. I was treated to one of the prettiest neighborhoods I have seen in a while.
These particular homes were all in the Franklin-Rosemary Historic District which received its designation in 1976. Due to its proximity to campus, many professors and university presidents have called the neighborhood home.
With the variety of architecture, mature shade trees, stone walls, wrought iron fences, and spring gardens in bloom, it’s not hard to see why so many have chosen to live there. Southerners just have a way of making their homes feel warm and welcoming…take a peek at these photos and I’m sure you’ll agree!
Which is your favorite and why? Is there a particular area of the country you find most welcoming? I’m a New Englander at heart but I have to say there is nothing like a Southern front porch with rocking chairs and a swing!
