You will love this house just as much as we have because it is plenty roomy to entertain and has 4 bedrooms and 3 baths which was handy with 3 kids. We originally bought it to be closer to our kids' school NRCA at the time. In the 14 years we have lived here there has been a lot of growth but roads have improved and there are more choices with restaurants and stores also. The neighborhood has a social most years and a yard sale once a year.
The things I love about Wake Forest are the small town feel plus it is very close to bigger city of Raleigh. Wake Forest has art walks and concerts etc.
We love this neighborhood because we have great neighbors! It is a great place to walk, it is close to other neighborhoods, the greenway and the large lots.
Our favorite places to eat or grab coffee or a drink would be Main Street Grill and San Jose restaurant in Wakefield. White Street brewery, Milton's and the Thai Cafe are great places too.
We love this area because it is convenient to Triangle Town Center and I-540. It is a short drive to the airport, downtown Raleigh and multiple parks and greenways. It is also halfway between the beach and the mountains.
We usually go to Publix, Lowes, Harris Teeter and Aldi for our groceries. The YMCA and Rex Wellness Center are both close as well. There are also multiple churches that are close by especially our church, Richland Creek.
We love the area and look forward to Blue Grass festival and Friday Night on White Street. Tour de Fat in Durham and the N.C. State Fair.
The first thing that really stood out to us was the large lot and trees. So many neighborhoods have tiny lots and not many trees. The room layouts and openness of downstairs kitchen and family room also caught our attention.
Smith Creek Greenway and Neuse River Greenway are great for walking, running and bicycling. Wine and design classes are just nearby and different art and recreation classes in Wake Forest and Raleigh through parks and recreation.
We've lovingly cared for the home and completed the following improvements: Replaced roof this year and the upstairs heat and A/C 3 years ago. Kitchen Island granite and counters and backsplash winter 2015. Hardwood floors sanded and refinished August 2016. Garage doors replaced 5 years ago and back deck doors replaced 4 years ago.
