Meadowmont, built in 1999, is an interconnected community that mirrors history with its narrow, tree-lined streets and old stone walls. The 435 acres of land used for the Meadowmont development was originally owned by the DuBose family, and the family’s entire estate originally encompassed 1,250 acres. David St. Pierre DuBose and Valinda Hill DuBose built what is now known as ” The DuBose Home” in 1933. Mrs. DuBose named their home Meadowmont because it was built at the top of a hill and was surrounded by meadows below. The home still sits in its original location, appropriately at the end of DuBose Home Lane. At 20,000 square feet, the home is a gorgeous example of the Georgian Revival houses of the interwar period, and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

David St. Pierre DuBose was an engineering graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The family home and 27 acres of gardens were bequeathed to The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the late 1980’s. It is there that the University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School built the Paul J. Rizzo Conference Center at Meadowmont, an executive-education center and hotel which serves as a retreat for meetings, conferences and special events. The DuBose Home is now used to host special university events, and is also available to the community as a venue for hosting private events.

Of the original 1,250 acres, about 500 acres became The Oaks subdivision and the Chapel Hill Country Club, and several hundred more acres are have been designated as a flood plain for a reservoir. After the passing of Mr. and Mrs. Dubose, their son J. McNeely DuBose contacted a local developer named Roger Perry about developing some of the land he inherited, because the upkeep of the property was prohibitively expensive. Dubose requested that the name of the development be called Meadowmont, in honor of his family’s previous estate, and Perry was more than happy to oblige.

A tribute to its namesake, the Meadowmont community is a studied reflection of Southern hospitality and grace. In fact, front porches, neighborhood parks and sidewalks on both sides of every street encourage neighborly interaction — it’s a true community seven days a week. With luxury townhomes, maintenance-free condos, wooded estate homes and Craftsman style cottage homes, the living options are numerous, and Meadowmont Village is always just a short walk away.


The DuBose Home of Meadowmont, built in 1933, is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
