Powell Place offers multiple living and architectural styles to suit different needs. There are attached, traditional-styled townhomes, but also detached homes that have a townhome-like look.

While the majority of the homes are two-stories, some also feature three-story lofts or attic spaces. Some townhomes may also feature a garage or parking area.
Mary Hayes Barber Holmes Park is a 10 acre neighborhood park, located in the Powell Place development. The main multi-use field is popular for soccer, lacrosse and unstructured play. The picnic shelters, grills, and the misting spray fountain see lots of use throughout the year. A rain garden, living-roof gazebo, and permeable paver parking demonstrate Pittsboro Parks’ commitment to environmental stewardship. The paved walking trail is about a third of a mile in length, and is a popular walking destination.
