Join Lisa Mackenzie from the Marti Hampton Real Estate team as she tours just a few of the stunning neighborhoods in Chapel Hill, NC! Lisa is a Chapel Hill resident and raised her own kids right in the Meadowmont neighborhood of Chapel Hill. Here’s a guide to all of the stops that we visit with Lisa on this tour of Chapel Hill!

Merritt’s Grill

Merritt’s Grill- Their Famous BLT Sandwich

First up on the Chapel Hill neighborhood tour is a place so famous for their BLT’s that it’s in their website name! Merritt’s Grill is a Chapel Hill institution since introducing their famous take on the bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich in 1992. The menu is full of tasty sandwiches for any palette including the Cajun Chicken, Linda Woods Chicken Salad, and Fried Bologna. In addition, they even have vegetarian options and burgers for those who are looking for something different! You can visit Merritt’s Grill for a delicious sandwich in person or order online through their menu page.

Downtown Chapel Hill/UNC Campus

Go Heels! Living in the heart of Downtown Chapel Hill (right near the campus of The University of North Carolina) is a great option for people who are looking for a fun and active lifestyle. Shops, restaurants, and entertainment are all within walking distance from the homes here. You’ll find great places to eat such as the Top of the Hill Restaurant and Brewery and then you can take a dive into Chapel Hill’s thriving arts and culture scene.


Meadowmont Village Town Square

As we continue our tour of Chapel Hill neighborhoods, we reach Meadowmont. Built in 1999, this neighborhood is where Lisa Mackenzie raised her own kids so she can personally vouch for this one! Not only does Meadowmont contain amazing homes, but there’s also a fully featured shopping and dining district called Meadowmont Village. Convenience and relaxation are the name of the game here. You can find everything from Fusion Fish to Hand and Stone Massage and Facial Spa here.

The Oaks

Chapel Hill Country Club

Finally, we’ve arrived at The Oaks! This luxurious neighborhood surrounds the Chapel Hill Country Club. Stunning golf course views, incredible homes, and a tight-knit community are just a few of the perks of living in The Oaks. If you’re looking for luxury and style, The Oaks is the place to be!
