Country Living Outside Of Wake Forest NC


Want the country life, but be minutes away from the city life?  This is an amazing opportunity to own some acreage with a beautiful brick home and still be close to all the action.  Wake Forest is one of the fastest growing towns in NC with great shops, restaurants, educational opportunities, golf courses, and so much more. The one-owner custom brick home was built in 2001 located north of the “Traditions” subdivision just across the Wake County line in Franklin County.   The home has spacious downstairs with a great layout of a  master suite on one side of the house and the 2 bedrooms and 1 bath on the other side.   Plenty of natural light comes into the family room through the transom and operable and fixed French door which leads out to a large covered porch area.  The living room has a cathedral ceiling and a gas log fireplace.  Beautiful open kitchen with breakfast nook, kitchen island bar with sink, pantry closet, and lots of cabinets and counter space leading into a formal dining room that comes furnished.  The kitchen, dining, and foyer is newly refinished pine flooring and the pool room has pine floors and accents.  The upstairs is one large room separate into 2 spaces, a pool room with a wet bar and fridge and the other side could be a media room, office space, or playroom.  The pool room walls are a hand-painted mural that will just amaze you and the pool table comes with the house! Attached is an oversized 2 car garage with a storage room and a large concrete parking pad outside. The driveway is lined with maple trees that are up-lighted with a low voltage lighting system. The yard has mature landscaping and an automatic water sprinkling system. The outside offers so many opportunities of a mini horse farm, farm animals, gardening, etc.  With a nice open metal building with a concrete floor, and small stable you could make it what you want.  There is an existing electrical fence system that could be operational to keep farm animals, or you could take it down and have one large yard.  The sky's the limit with this property with no city taxes and no HOA fees. Wake Forest is situated less than 10 miles north of Raleigh, Wake Forest is a prime location for anyone wishing to enjoy a quality way of life with all the benefits of city living. The community offers quick, easy access to the Triangle's first-class universities, the Research Triangle Park, Atlantic Coast Conference athletics, professional sporting events, and world-renowned golfing events. In addition, the beach is just over two hours away, while the mountains are a three to four-hour drive, so you are never very far from North Carolina's most popular vacation destinations.
