Hope Valley is one of Durham's original country club communities.  Building in the area started in the late 1920's and new construction continues.  Majestic luxury homes line Hope Valley Country Club's Donald Ross golf course, which was built in 1926.  While there are other lovely country clubs in the Durham area, Hope Valley Country Club is thought to be the most traditional and prestigious.

Hope Valley in Durham comprises slightly more than 900 homes in an area extending between Hope Valley Road, Swarthmore Road and Chapel Hill Road.  It was originally laid-out by Mebane & Sharpe Company of Greensboro, NC.  Most homes in the Hope Valley area sell from $750,000 to close to $4,000,000, with a few bargains available at lower prices.

Hope Valley is 20 minutes from Raleigh Durham International Airport, 15 minutes from Research Triangle Park, 10 minutes from Duke University, 10 minutes from SouthPoint Mall and 10 minutes from downtown Durham.  It is 5 minutes from Interstate 40 and The Durham Freeway.

The area was laid-out with gently winding roads encircling the country club and branching-off into new areas of development that have occurred consistently since its founding.

The country club boasts a 52,000 square foot, 1926 Aymar Embury II clubhouse, the Donald Ross golf course and an Olympic sized swimming pool.

Over the last few years, many long-time residents have begun selling their side lots and investment properties, allowing a fair amount of new construction.
