We built this house while we were pregnant with our youngest daughter. It was so exciting to stop by the house to watch it slowly come to life. We remember the day they broke ground. Feels like it was just yesterday! The day they laid the foundation and the front steps...we bought dinner and took our oldest daughter (only age 3 at the time) and sat together on our front steps and nothing else. We ate dinner and talked about what life would be like when we could finally move into our new home.
We remember standing in the living room before they'd built and installed the roof. We stood on the plywood subfloors the middle of living room and stared up into the nights sky to count the stars together. It was one of the best memories of my life.
When we closed on the house in 2007, our youngest daughter was born 2 weeks later. I'll never forget the excitement of bringing her home from the hospital to her new room. I bet that bedroom in the eyes of a baby must have felt like the biggest space in the world.
We've enjoyed so many celebrations in the house and hosted so many gatherings On the large back deck. We've listened to secadas and a chorus of frogs emerge every evening while we sat together on the screened in porch.
We've witnessed the most beautiful sunrises from our deck and kitchen. We are so excited for the next chapter of our lives and hope the buyer(s) find as much happiness here as we have!
We love living in Wake Forest! It has the charm of a small town but the convenience residents expect. You can always find a friendly shop or restaurant to frequent, which makes it easy for your family to get to know the area.
I love the location of our neighborhood. It is convenient to everything but is like a hidden gem off of Capital Blvd. We often hear from visitors that they never knew such a pretty neighborhood was nestled back in that area along the Neuse River Basin.
Here are some grocery stores and conveniences that are close to home:
- Harris Teeter
- Food Lion
- Lowes Food
- Triangle Town Center
- DMV offices
- Multiple post office locations
We look forward to attending these events every year: Friday Nights on White (event hosted by Downtown Wake Forest)
; The Pumpkin Patch at Hill Ridge Farms, Youngsville.
