Default Miramonte in Apex

Is there a more convenient part of Apex? (Like Western Apex or something)
Closer to Cary or closer to Holly Springs?

Is this subdivision a nice one?

It backs up to a large apartment complex, which I would view as a negative if I were spending $250,000-300,000.

The townhouses are well-appointed and reasonably priced.

The address is Apex, but it really feels like it's in Holly Springs.

It's very convenient to US-1, which is a plus.

IMO the most convienient subdivisions in Apex are Walden Creek and Haddon Hall...which are in "corners" made my 55 and 64 so you have easy access to both.

The builder there is McCar Homes. Another builder that isn't very well liked in the area.

Don't know the subdivision, but have heard lots of negatives about McCar. I don't really care for that general area of Apex. I'd prefer to be closer to the downtown and to the new shopping centers (Beaver Creek, etc). If you are going to cross US 1, you may as well start looking to some of the Holly Springs neighborhoods (which are far too much of a commute for me to RTP, but not so bad to Raleigh).

I think there is talk of a very large development going up around US 1 and 55 intersection. Something to investigate. Making that area less industrial feeling might be a good thing long term, but it will bring more traffic, etc to the area.

I can't imagine anything residential going in around hwy 55 & US 1 in that area of Apex. The Dixie Pipeline has a god awful smell & I hate having to drive by there. I think Miramonte is too close by Hwy 55, but I've never been in the neighborhood so I can't really comment on noise, smells, etc.

Looks like the big development is called Trinity and is over 1000 acres.

Default Another new development

If you go a little further south on 55 into Holly Springs 12 Oaks is a new development going in there; all range of home types from townhomes to $$$$$
