Hey there, Disney fans and Disney community enthusiasts! Have you heard the latest buzz? Disney is bringing a sprinkle of its magic to North Carolina with the development of a brand-new residential community called Asteria, part of the innovative Storyliving by Disney concept. Nestled in the heart of North Carolina, near the vibrant cities of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, Asteria is not just a place to live; it’s a journey into a world of wonder and discovery.
A Community Inspired by Curiosity and Discovery
Asteria is more than just a neighborhood; it’s a canvas for exploration and lifelong learning. The Disney Imagineers, in collaboration with DMB Development, are crafting this community with a unique vision inspired by Walt Disney’s own curiosity and zest for learning. Remember Walt Disney’s words? “We keep moving forward, opening new doors and doing new things because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” That’s the spirit fueling Asteria!
A Campus of Discovery in the Research Triangle
Imagine living in a place where every day is an opportunity to learn and grow. That’s what Asteria is all about. Drawing inspiration from the nearby universities in North Carolina’s famous Research Triangle, Asteria is envisioned as a campus where residents can immerse themselves in new experiences and Disney’s enchantment.
Exploring North Carolina’s Natural Beauty
Set on approximately 1,500 acres in picturesque Chatham County, just a stone’s throw from Raleigh, Asteria is a tribute to the natural beauty of North Carolina. The community is designed to blend seamlessly with nature, offering acres of parks and miles of trails for residents to connect with the great outdoors. And guess what? The name Asteria itself is a nod to the native North Carolina aster flower, symbolizing the connection between earth and sky.
Amenities That Spark Curiosity
Asteria isn’t just about beautiful homes; it’s about creating a community that fosters learning and connection. Residents will have access to a club with amenities that encourage curiosity. Think wellness centers, sports courts, swimming pools, and even Disney-themed activities and storytelling dinners. It’s all about bringing people together in a creative and engaging way.
A New Chapter in Community Living
Asteria offers a range of home styles, from quaint streets to community amenities, all designed with Disney’s signature placemaking and outstanding customer service. With plans for over 4,000 residential units, including options for 55+ adults, there’s something for everyone. And the best part? It’s all set in the charming town of Pittsboro, within the larger Chatham Park community, offering both small-town charm and big-city amenities.
Join the Magic
Excited about this enchanting community? Homes in Asteria are set to be built by select homebuilders, with sales anticipated to start by 2027. For more details and to join the community’s email list, visit storylivingbydisney.com/asteria.
