It’s no secret that the Western Wake County area offers a fantastic lifestyle. It is consistently ranked in the top ten of places to live, start a business, raise a family, go to school, and even to lose weight. This popularity also makes it difficult to secure great housing…
While a lot of the newer development occurs at the edges where land tends to be cheaper, there are opportunities in smaller infill developments – specifically where growth has effectively joined The Towns of Apex and Cary. Located off of N Salem St and just to the west of Laurel Park Elementary, The Trace subdivision offers fantastic location and great value. Recently developed in 2007, this 37 lot community is attractive and quiet. It has very low HOA fees that include complete lawn maintenance, and it is within walking distance of Apex Community Park.
Residents also enjoy being right in the middle of awesome shopping and dining areas like Beaver Creek, Costco, Parkway Pointe, and Fresh Market. There is a very active YMCA right up Cary Parkway, and you’ve got Bond Lake Park and the award-winning Cary Tennis Park right up the road. The Wake County lower schools in this area are highly rated and of course you’ve got your choice of the best universities in the country within driving distance. It’s less than 20 minutes to RDU Airport, and about 15 to Research Triangle Park. It is difficult to find anything close to this price point in such a great location.
