Chapel Hill, NC, September 04, 2008 --( Located only minutes away from downtown Carrboro’s boutique shopping, fabulous restaurants, enjoyable nightlife and the UNC-Chapel Hill campus, a distinctive community beckons. Claremont raises the standard for neighborhood living by defining a modern level of style – and there’s nothing cookie-cutter about it.

Offering distinctive, custom designs, fine detail and luxurious finishes, each home is thoughtfully crafted by one of two award-winning Claremont builders. Both Zinn Design Build and JT Lewis take pride in creating each customer’s dream home, combining artistically designed spaces, maintenance-free practicalities and master craftsmanship that will last for generations.

Underneath the luxurious finishing touches is one of the best-loved features of the neighborhood. Each Claremont home is ENERGY STAR and Green Building Initiative certified, meeting strict guidelines for energy and water efficiency from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. These resource efficient design features not only promise a healthier environment for future generations, but also result in low ownership costs and a healthier home.
