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 like the AE Finley YMCA, American Institute of Healthcare & Fitness HealthPark, and the North Raleigh Arts & Creative Theatre.
The shopping and dining options are attractive as well and include places like Whole Foods, the Shops of Baileywick, Lafayette Village, and Poppyseed Market. You also have your choice of big-box retail centers like Brier Creek and the Triangle Town Center, that include favorites like Target, BJ’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and TJ Maxx. The plain fact that the area has become the central suburban location for the best of the Triangle doesn’t hurt either. Residential properties in North Raleigh tend to move quickly.

Currently being offered for sale is a Contemporary Masterpiece in Greywalls at Trego. Nestled in the middle of three and a half acres, this 5405 square feet home is a modern delight. This is not your ordinary North Raleigh estate property – this is a wonderfully unique opportunity.
Your guests will be impressed as they approach your new home. The monumented entry leads to a winding drive, and the lush landscaping accentuates the angular lines of the home and hardscape. In the evening, lighting accentuates these magazine-worthy features. Upon entry, the stepped front windows and the curves of the grand foyer focus your attention on the central cascading chandelier. Moving to the right or left will bring you into the huge great room. This space is decked out with sleek built-ins and a mirrored fireplace that gleams with the natural light that pours in from the wall of windows that span the back wall of the home. There are fantastic views of the pool and terrace from this room as well as the bridge that looks down from either side of the fireplace. There is a sitting area accented with etched glass and colored LED lighting that separates the family room and kitchen.
The Miami-Vice feel continues into the glamorous breakfast nook and kitchen. From the angles of the uplit trey ceiling, acres of granite, and gleaming stainless professional appliances, to the modern mahogany casework and travertine floors, you might miss the revolving bar perfect for hiding your best top-shelf spirits. Tucked back into the other side of the kitchen is comfortable gathering room – with glass walls that continue into the ceiling, this space is breathtaking. The downstairs also has a beautiful formal living room, a large modern dining room, and a generous bedroom suite with access to the pool and porch.
Upstairs, the razzle-dazzle continues with two more spacious bedrooms and hall bath. Each of these rooms are well-lit and have excellent closet space. Across the bridge and through etched glass French doors, the master suite encompasses the entire south side of the home. The ceiling soars dramatically and the platformed bed area is reflected in the mirror and mahogany fireplace. The space is large enough for your imagination, and there is a gorgeous balcony where you can welcome the morning sun. Large porthole windows lead the way to the private workout room and laundry, and there are three huge closets with custom built-ins and locking storage. The master bath is truly a retreat, with his and hers bathrooms and an inviting adjoining steam shower and separate sauna. You deserve this space.
The outdoor living spaces of this home are just as breathtaking. The focal point is the curvy pool and hot tub, but the covered porch at the rear of the expansive deck will be a well-used space. The back yard includes almost half an acre of manicured lawn as well as a couple acres of shady forest surrounding an idyllic babbling brook. Truly North Raleigh fine living.
