I'm no NRG and I certainly don't have his camera (mine cost $120, ha ha) but I drive through neighborhoods a lot- especially when it's nice out. I'll try to start taking photos and posting here. Today, I really wanted to check out Lafayette and Falls Preserve, but I also wanted to do "normal" neighborhoods where a house won't cost you a million bucks.

This is Windsor Forest and Windsor Place. I didn't know about Chadstone Townhomes until I looked it up on the tax map, so unfortunately, no photos of those.












I liked the trees in the median, but they're a little hard to photograph from the car so pardon the sideview mirror.











Too bad they let State fans live there! Just teasin', everyone!

















The sign says "Windsor Place", but I was too low to show it in the photo. This is the townhome section - they have a pool, too, but I couldn't really get a photo of it. It was pretty small and mostly looked like bushes in the picture.







Here are their HOA covenants: http://www.talismanagementgroup.com/...0Covenants.pdf

Looked at the Wake County tax records and the homes are selling between $190K - $230K with some exceptions, both higher and lower.

My pleasure. I was going to do Durant Trails, but it's much bigger and I was eager to get home and enjoy the weather Maybe next time.

Beautiful area of North Raleigh. The townhouses in Windsor Place run about $130s and $140s.

Homes run from about $190s and $210s, all the way to $240s.

They were mostly built in the '90s.

Gotta love spring in North Raleigh!

Vicki

Can anyone comment on the train noise here, at the Durant road crossing? Can you hear it in your houses?

I live in Windsor Forest now and yes, you can hear the train. It goes by a few times a day and blows its horn (roughly 8 times each time) as it crosses Durant road and Gresham Lake road (not as loud but can still hear it). I guess the sound is worse in the winter since the trees have no leaves? It doesn't bother me but my wife doesn't like it.

There was talk of a high-speed rail being built where they would make a bridge over Durant road and thus no more horn but I haven't heard about this overpriced ridiculous rail system in a little while. This map is the one (large pdf) that includes Durant road. It's hard to interpret the big red block.

I live in Windsor Forest more towards the middle of the neighborhood. We are relatively new (been there a year). The train noise doesn't bother us. We hear maybe 2 times a day. I think it would be louder if you lived more towards the townhomes. If we are inside with the doors and windows shut and tv on we usually don't hear it.

Default Windsor Forest Subdivision Pool

Hi, my Mom is in the process of looking for a new home in N.Raleigh.
She really likes Windsor Forest. Does this neighborhood have a pool?
I can see on Google Maps a very small pool off of Grassington Way.
Thank You !!

We rent a home in this neighborhood. It's a great place to live. The townhome portion has a small pool but it is only for the use of the residents in the townhomes.
