There are many reasons that people are moving to the Triangle area, but there is really only one reason why they decide to live in Apex – the atmosphere and lifestyle is fantastic. Generally, Apex is typified by rolling terrain and manicured properties, with trails connecting many of the parks and lakes. There are established estate and country club developments as well as newer walkable neighborhoods, and even award-winning active adult communities. The area boasts a well-educated tax base and there are numerous community amenities for all ages. The southern part of Wake County in particular offers a nice blend of arts and cultural venues such as Halle Cultural Arts Center and Yates Mill, Kraft Family YMCA, and outdoor recreation spots like Lochmere Golf Club, Knights Play Golf, Jordan Lake State Park, and miles of maintained greenways.
Area shopping and dining includes big-box centers like Crossroads and Beaver Creek as well as a new Costco and a new Publix, and numerous local favorites such as MacGregor Village and Waverly Place – and of course the best bagels in Wake County are made at the New York Bagel & Deli in Crescent Commons. Corporate and medical centers also thrive in this area, and provide excellent services for all ages. It’s no wonder that Apex is consistently ranked as one of the best places to live in the country!
Currently being offered for sale is a fantastic large-lot opportunity on the edge of Apex, at the intersection of Apex, Cary, and Holly Springs. At almost three quarters of an acre, with the added benefit of no county taxes and no HOA, this wooded property should provide a foundation for whatever you can imagine. It has excellent curb appeal as well – mature oaks flank the picturesque approach to this traditional home. You will be proud to welcome your guests onto the stately front porch and into the open floyer. The fine detailing of this home is evident, with gleaming hardwood floors and custom millwork throughout. There is a formal living room to the left, which might also be perfect for an executive office space. The formal dining room is to the right of the foyer and is highlighted by an octagonal trey ceiling.
The rear of the home has a semi-open floor plan – the casual living spaces delineated yet flowing seamlessly for continuity. The large family room has a brick gas-log fireplace to warm the space and a wall of south facing windows keep the space bright and airy. A comfortable breakfast nook separates the family room from the kitchen, and also opens to a very nice deck. The kitchen has recently been updated and features white casework, contrasting black appliances, and acres of granite prep space.
Upstairs, the private living spaces do not disappoint. There are three generous bedrooms around a central hall. Each bedroom has fantastic natural light and great closet space. There is a brand new hall bathroom – modern dual-sink, and subway tile floor…very very nice. There is a large laundry room on this level as well.
The master suite is truly an owners retreat. This bedroom is large enough for just about any type of furniture. The bath is decadent. Modern tile, marble, and glass cover every surface, and there is a huge master closet. If you can’t relax in this space, you may need professional help.
This home also features a finished third floor, perfect space for a theater room or for whatever your imagination can conjure. The outdoor spaces of this home are equally as impressive. The fenced yard is private and shady, and the deck is a fantastic place to unwind and grill something delicious. One of the other awesome features of this home is the additional garage. This extra space will park at least four cars, or other combination of recreational vehicles, and it has a huge area above for a workshop/mancave/storage room. Huge potential.
When it comes right down to it, the purchase of a home is more than just bricks and mortar. You are looking for a home that allows you to enjoy the lifestyle you always have dreamed about. With easy access to southern Wake County’s fantastic amenities and the natural beauty of the greater Triangle, and a home base right in the middle, your dreams can become reality.
It is difficult to fully understand the unique attractive features of this home. And while we have provided many additional pictures, virtual tour, and other details on our website, it’s really best just to experience it in person.
