There are so many reasons that people are moving to the Raleigh area. This area is growing because of fantastic employment opportunities as well as great lifestyle options. Residential choices abound and there is new development throughout the Triangle. But there is a pocket of the Triangle that has been overlooked by most – wetlands and terrain, land acquisition challenges, and lack of pedigree have made this area unattractive to tract-builder development. For the one looking for fantastic estate properties, great value, absolute peace and quiet, and low-traffic access to the best of Raleigh and Cary, don’t overlook South Raleigh.
The shopping and dining options are attractive and include places like Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Harris Teeter, all of the shopping at Crossroads Center and Waverly Place, Cary Towne Center Mall (future IKEA?), Lucky 32, New York Bagel and Deli, Brigs at the Village, and on and on.
Outdoor recreation enthusiasts will love this location. Greenways and trails connect smaller lakes like Lake Wheeler, Lake Johnsons, and Yates Mill Pond, and of course Lake Jordan is just down Hwy 64. Golf Courses abound on this side of town, and with other recreation amenities like Town of Cary Tennis Center, the Triangle Aquatic Center, and the great YMCA system in the area, you’ll forget how to spell “boredom”. The plain fact that the area has become the central suburban location for the best of the Triangle doesn’t hurt either. South Raleigh is just a phenomenal choice to put down your roots and enjoy your lifestyle.
