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 everyone.
Currently being offered for sale is a gorgeous contemporary home, with privacy galore. 8816 Ross Court is a four bedroom, two and a half bath home designed and built to take advantage of a wooded cul-de-sac lot on the 2nd tee of the golf course. Totally surrounded with lush mature landscape, the angular cedar siding plays well with the stone façade. You will be proud to welcome your guests onto the stone landing and into the soaring two-story foyer. The design does provide for both a formal living and large dining room, which are both located to the right.
The rear of the home features an open living concept with the kitchen and breakfast nook flowing into a family room. This comfortable space invites the outside in, with a wall of large windows and a stone fireplace flanked with custom built-ins. The large kitchen is set up for entertaining with a walk-in pantry, more than enough creamy casework, a glass cook top in the center island, and acres of granite prep space. The breakfast nook features full-light French doors leading out to the expansive three-level deck, which allows the party to flow in and out. And of course, the privacy of the bubbling hot tub might be all you need to forget about the cares of the week…
The second level offers private living space that is both efficient and generous. There are three large bedrooms that feature great closet space, a hall bath with double sinks, a full laundry room, and the master suite on this level. The palladium window centered below the cathedral ceiling of the large master suite sets this space apart. The master bath is decadent as well featuring double sinks, a walk-in closet, and a platform soaking tub. The third floor was wisely finished by the previous owner, providing a fantastic bonus room (theater/game/workout/craft/5th bedroom) opportunity limited only by your imagination.
This home has storage opportunities on every level, including a crawl space workshop area. The systems of the home have been meticulously maintained, including a new roof in 2007, new furnace in 2009, several new windows, brand new carpet, fresh paint on the exterior and the entire home interior was just painted. To round out the extras, the home has a generator system to protect from those rare outages. The wide-open outdoor living spaces of this home are comfortable and shady, and there is an enclosed pet run area.
