OK
Currently Living in the Long Island Area and we are relocating to NC, we love the Holly Springs (Sunset Oaks Subdivsion), Cary (West Lakes Subdivsion) and Apex (Seagrove Farm Subdivsion) areas. Does anyone know any Pros and Cons on all 3 (such as sidewalks, schools, distance to civilazation, amount of house for money, etc.)

Much Appreciated

Holly Springs is pretty central - Fuquay 10 minutes to the southeast, Apex 10 minutes to the west, and Cary 10-15 minutes to the north. There's a brand new Walmart shopping center that's just been built on Hwy 55 5 minutes away, and a brand new Harris Teeter shopping center going in right next to it. There are restaraunts and shopping in all three directions, though Fuquay is a bit older/lower income.

My kids aren't quite old enough to be going to school, but I've been through the elementary and middle school - new and a very nice feel to them.

The D.R. Horton neighborhood West Lake is nice. It's right across the street from Middle Creek High School & Middle Creek Elementary & there is also West Lake Elementary & West Lake Middle School nearby too on West Lake Rd. I don't have any experience with the builder. The houses are HUGE! The whole upgrade thing tho bugs me. I hate dealing with production builders because I don't like NOT knowing the price of the house. Most of them come standard with vinyl flooring & carpet, and laminate countertops & everything is an upgrade.

I love close by in The Park at West Lake. The homes in my neighborhood are fully upgraded custom homes. The price includes hardwoods, tile, granite counters, screen porches, etc. I much prefer my neighborhood to West Lake personally.

The Park at West Lake has an awesome pool area too similiar to the Sunset Oaks neighborhoood, but our homeowners dues are around $300 a year. Sunset Oaks/Sunset Ridge is higher & there is an initiation fee. When we were looking in the neighborhood it was a BIG turnoff for us.

We're about 15 minutes from Crossroads. Crossroads has tons of stores such as Kohls, BJs, Best Buy, Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, Lowes, Home Depot, and on and on and on.

We're 5 mins from Harris Teeter (nice grocery store) in Holly Springs. There is a library in Holly Springs within 10 minutes. I think this area is pretty convenient to a lot of things. We're a little further out than some neighborhoods, but we choose to live here because we wanted a new custom home with a little bit of land.

Here are some pictures of the Park at West Lake pool:

If you would like me to take some pictures of West Lake or my neighborhood The Park at West Lake, just let me know. My neigbhborhood doesn't have many sidewalks, but there is a sidewalk up & down West Lake Rd. from the schools starting around West Lake Middle up to Middle Creek Elementary. As for West Lake, I have never noticed if they have side walks either.

Default Holly Springs

We moved from Mass to holly springs sunset oaks in September.
We’re currently renting the house we are in till we decide were to live.
So far we like sunset oaks as there are a lot of families here and there are sidewalks.
Everything is close by and the Airport is only 25 minutes away or soThe lots can be small on homes in the high 2’s to low 3’s but they all pretty much have a lot of upgrades in them.
There is a development in Fuquay that we found that had bigger lots but it’s new so it’s not established like Sunset Oaks so tough decision there.
As far as the pools, you can just join the YMCA or other fitness clubs with plenty to do.
The development in Fuquay if you'd like to check it out is Brighten Forest.
