Walnut Hill Farm Lot 6

Hillsborough, NC

The sustainable design features of this home’s wooded landscape helped it earn a bronze certification through the NC Healthy-Built Home program. Permeable paving, water conservation features such as rain barrels and dry wells, and the use of many native, edible and drought tolerant plants characterize the landscape.

The design features a sunny front yard garden overflowing with herbs and perennials, and a private hot tub deck surrounded by figs and flowers. A bluestone grilling and entertaining patio anchors the backyard’s outdoor areas, and woodland paths complement the site’s natural beauty.
