I have known the builder of those houses since our high school days. Good guy, and great product. I actually inspected a home on Fawn Hoof just a few days ago and it did real well.

Those are off of Adcock road, right? That technically is holly springs once you are at the end of adcock. I work out that way believe it or not. Now, that area is gorgeous and yes, so are those houses! It feels so country and peaceful out there but you are 5-10 minutes from shopping and dining in Holly Springs and Fuquay. You are about 15-25 minutes from Apex/Cary if you need more shopping and dining than FV and HS can offer right now (but just wait!). If you can land a job in FV, HS, Apex or Cary (and yes they do exist), than FV and HS are ideal locations for lots of folks. Not EVERYONE works or will work in RTP itself. If you have to work in RTP, than you may not appreciate being so far out from there. Although, some people don't mind commuting to have a nicer home a little removed from the hustle and bustle. It's all personal choice! Good Luck in your search!

The sales agent tried to tell DH and I that it only took about 30-35 minutes to get to Duke/Durham. That is WAY off because it took 10-15 minutes to get back to Rt 55, then we saw a sign on 55 that read: Durham 30 miles! And that is with no traffic! The first home I decribed was really so beautiful though, makes me wish I was still home with younguns....it's there for the taking for the right person. If anyone on the forum buys it, please invite me over!

Ok, I feel dumb for asking this, but what does DH mean? (she's referring to her husband in above post)

Thanks - I've been too embarrassed to ask that question ... I've been lurking on forums for a long time and could not figure out what the "d" stood for.

Any thing in particular that you liked in Fuquay or Holly Springs?
I am looking for a Single Family Home in 200K-250K range and visiting the Raleigh area next week. Please let us know if you liked anything in particular. I am focussing more on Norther Foquay so that I am bit closer to RTP.

You can even find just as nice homes in Fuquay as Whitetail for less money (South Lakes, Lakestone Village, etc) but the lot sizes aren't as big. Glad you shared the tip with everyone!

Try looking at Ballentine off Sunset Lake or over by Wake Tech CC - and by Fuquay Elementary - and Five Points (Willow Spring area). I don't have many specifics to help you further
