When you realize that this is the place you would like to call home…
This is North Raleigh Fine Living
There are many reasons that people are moving to the Raleigh area, but there is really only one reason why they decide to live in North Raleigh – the atmosphere and lifestyle is fantastic. Generally, North Raleigh is typified by rolling terrain and forested properties, with trails connecting many of the parks and lakes. Falls Lake State Recreation Area is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the local climate and terrain.
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. Attractive terrain, coupled with wise urban planning have made the area popular for suburban growth. Decades-long increases in home values are a good indicator of a great area – residential properties in North Raleigh tend to move quickly.
At the end of the day, North Raleigh is just a phenomenal choice to put down your roots and enjoy your life, in style.
While there are a lot of reasons to live in North Raleigh, one of them is the opportunity to live in a neighborhood like Wildwood Green. The community is a wonderful combination of rolling terrain, large forested lots, and spacious homes surrounding a John LaFoy golf course, and all within minutes of all of the awesome North Raleigh lifestyle features. More specifically, the neighborhood is centrally located just south of Interstate 540 between Baileywick and Creedmoor Road. It is a very active community that has opportunities for all types of families.
Currently being offered for sale is a gorgeous Charlestonian home, surrounded by the golf course on three sides. 9017 Wildwood Links is a four bedroom, three bath home designed for entertaining. The curb appeal is welcoming, with a stately presence surrounded by manicured landscaping, and a double porch spans the entire side. You will be proud to welcome your guests into the circular drive and onto the round portico. The fine detailing of the home is evident as you approach, with wrought iron rails and custom trim highlighting every feature.
The soaring two-story foyer shows off the size of this home. To the left there is a formal living room highlighted by a gorgeous fireplace. The dining room adjoins, defined by four columns and wainscoting. On the right side of the foyer, through an elegant set of french doors, is a main floor guest suite. This space would also work well as an executive office. Passing under the second-story loft, the rear of the home is wide open and comfortable. A large family room awaits that has another inviting fireplace, and french doors lead to a porch that faces the tee box of the ninth hole – this outdoor living space is a wonderful bonus. A large custom kitchen and breakfast nook anchor the rear of the home. The breakfast nook ceilings jump back to twenty feet which makes the space feel decadent. The custom kitchen is stunning – creamy white casework is highlighted by stainless KitchenAid Professional Series appliances (including a 6 burner gas range), commercial hood, travertine backslash and acres of high-level granite. There is also a large contrasting island that begs for someone to linger on a stool and watch you prepare a meal. And, the easy-living lifestyle of this home continues right out onto a large deck…I mentioned that this was a great home for entertaining, right?
Upstairs, the private living spaces continue with the same feel. At the top of the stairs, there are two bedrooms to the left. They are generously sized with south facing windows, and they share a large bathroom. To the right, the master suite awaits. This space is truly an owners retreat. The large bedroom has a central fireplace flanked by french doors that lead out to the upper porch. The views are amazing and the space is peaceful. The master bathroom is very spacious and features a long cabinet with double sinks, a glass shower enclosure and a modern soaking tub. The huge master closet attaches to the bathroom. The rear of the upstairs includes a very nice bonus room with a back staircase down to the kitchen area, as well as a massive laundry room with casework and even a dog shower.
The outdoor living areas with this home are truly spectacular. And, with the golf course adjacent on two sides, it feels like the yard goes on forever. This home has storage opportunities on every level, not including a large two-car garage. The systems of the home have been meticulously maintained, and each of the bathrooms and kitchen have been professionally remodeled within the last few years. You really should have nothing to worry about with this home.
