Croasdaile Farm is located in northern Durham, NC, and offers 1,500 acres of lush forest and grassy meadows. Croasdaile Farm was once one of Durham’s most prestigious dairy farms. Vestiges of the old dairy farm have been preserved and give the neighborhood a rural atmosphere, although its location is convenient to the entire Triangle area. A short five minute drive takes you to the Duke campus, and I-85 is only three minutes away, making it easily accessible to southern Durham, Downtown Durham, Chapel Hill, and shopping at the two major malls.
This elegant community offers traditional, luxury homes set on spacious lots ranging in size from less than once acre to over two acres. Custom home building is also available. Luxurious, exclusive brick townhomes are set along an adjacent pond and include special features such as 9-ft ceilings, 2-car garages, custom kitchen cabinets, large walk-in closets, and Jacuzzi tubs in the master bedrooms.
Croasdaile Country Club was established in 1966 by Drs. Frances and Herbert Fox. The land was inherited by Frances from her father, John Sprunt Hill, who was a community leader and founder of Central Carolina Bank. The neighborhood they developed offered beautiful homes, swimming and tennis facilities, a professionally designed, championship golf course, and, as the focal point, an elegant clubhouse.
The Croasdaile golf course is one of the most notable attributes of the club. The 18-hole course was originally designed in 1966 by renowned architect George W. Cobb and redesigned in a remarkable $3 million overhaul in 2002 by award-winning golf course architect John LaFoy. It is a par 72 and spans a total of 7,068 yards of pristine property, with serene landscaping and well-maintained greens and fairways.
