Default stone creek village

I've lived here about 6 months and love it. Yes it's pricey, but the floor plan was right, the location was right, and I just feel like I fit much better than my former Cary home. Quite a few of the restaurants have opened. I really like being able to walk to the grocery store & dry cleaners, etc.

I live a mile down the road and think the location is great!

You can walk to two groceries, a couple of bar/restaurants and several other eating establishments, a couple of good coffee shops, two drug chains, and many shopping etceteras.
It is less than a couple of miles west of Cary's Bond Park, with ball fields and a small lake.
Centex is the builder and it seems that people are very happy with them.
We have been through the models and they are pricey as they are quite well appointed.

I liked the homes, but had some concerns about the community. It is nice to have the shopping right there, but you are also along a very busy road (High House), and as more stores open, no doubt both traffic and noise will increase.

You also want to be very careful about which lot you buy. There are several homes that are almost move in ready, however they back up to the shopping center parking lot. The sales person took me into one of the homes, and from the 2nd floor master bedroom I had a sweeping view of the Walgreens parking lot and their overflowing dumpster! Not something I care to wake up to every morning. I think that will have a significant impact on the resale value since it will become very apparent once the homes are completed.

You might also want to look at Westover Park, another Centex development. Less pricey and no dumpster views. It is about two miles further north on Davis Drive.

Whilst Centex are a fine company builder, I found Stone Creek to be about the most overpriced properties in the area. Sure, the houses are nice, but the few decent lots have gone with the remaining ones currently available being really unattractive.

I feel that many communities in Cary are ripping people off as the targeted buyers, from the north and CA, probably consider paying over 400K for a tiny lot which backs up to a noisy road, Harris Teeter or with a great view of Walgreens parking lot, cheap?

Best look elsewhere. Preston is just another country club and a half decent golf course. Theres better places around.

Victoria,

What's the verdict? Did you decide on Stone Creek? It's right across the street from my office!! Centex is a high quality builder in the area and the stone/brick combo is very appealing. Westover Park, while, not quite as upscale is also a good option.

You can't go wrong with stone Creek. Close to RTP, RDU, Davis Drive, 55, 540, Cary Tennis and Bond Park.

Here is what is in Stone Creek Village. Stone Creek contains some new upscale boutiques, children's shoe store, soon to be Chop House Grill, Five Guys burgers, Red Bowl Asian Bistro, ice cream and candy shoppe, Coffee shop, Walgreens, Harris Teeter, Z Pizza, nail salon, JF Gemeli Hair Salon, Sport Clips and a few more.

I am also a member of Prestonwood CC. Their website is Prestonwood Country Club: Step into a World Apart. The club is gorgeous. They have a brand new main ballroom. An older section of the club that has been renovated a little and you can use it for functions, business meetings. They have their Sunday Brunch there. Daily Lunch buffet. Dinners. They also have the Red Fox club on the lower level next to the pro shop. The pro shop is very well stocked. They have tennis courts with lessons. Of course the golf course. They have 3 swimming pools there with a snack bar. New this year was that someone will actually come by your chair and take a food and beverage order. They have a fitness center. You can also have a personal trainer and receive massage Services.

They have four levels of membership. (1)Dining. (2) Social which allows you use of the pool, Fitness Center, activities and Dining. (3) Tennis which allows you tennis and the previous social. (4) Golf which is the whole package. I believe pricing now for a social is 17K plus monthly dues. They will let you finance with a payment plan that is something new that they never had before.

Not sure how we got off on the PCC tangent. I'm also a member and the facilities (since way back when in 1996). As you mention Preston is a great facility.

However, for those who are interested in low maintenence living, the Townhomes at Stonecreek are are great option.

The original poster said that she heard that prestonwood country club was down the street. I was just providing information for them regarding this to be helpful.
