About The Carolina Highlands at Village Green

The Carolina Highlands independent living community was established in 2000 and named after the original settlers of Fayetteville, North Carolina, who arrived from the Highlands of Scotland in 1739.  Originally comprised of twenty-nine private residences, the current retirement community consists of forty-four elegant condominiums for active adult living.

The three-level property consists of one, two and three bedroom floor plans across two phases of design, with purchase and leasing options. Homeowners are free to decorate the condominiums as their own, personalizing the character of The Carolina Highlands.
