Here are some photos of the Falls River neighborhood in North Raleigh. Neighborhood is located near Falls of the Neuse and Durant. It's a great kid friendly neighborhood with extra wide streets, sidewalks on both sides of every street, green areas and pocket parks every couple of blocks, an access trail to Capital Greenway, and a nice looking pool club with 2 pools, tennis, volleyball, small playground, and what appeared to be a small soccer field.

I might have driven out of Falls River proper towards the end, it's not clear to me exactly where the specific Falls River development ends yet.

Entrance to development off Durant Rd. Durant Middle school (not visible) is on the right side of the photo.

From what I've learned about Falls River the neighborhood has houses of virtually every type: town houses, condos, patio homes, cottage homes, 1 story, and 2 story. I've seen sale prices up to $399K though I believe that's the high end of the price range for the neighborhood.

I recall a handful of FSBO while driving around in there.

Disregard my request. The answer just popped up from my memory bank (for sale by owner).

Where is everybody? Lots of sidewalks, playgrounds, and a community center....

Or was it the middle of a weekday?

Good point. It was Monday early afternoon. I saw 2-3 people walking dogs. 1 jogger. And a three small children playing in their yards or in the street (a cul-de-sac). But it was pretty quiet.

To my knowledge Falls River was established in 1999 so it's older which explains the mature landscaping on the personal property. But it looks like the developers generally took care to leave a lot of existing trees around which adds to the overall beauty of the neighborhood.

It's beautiful! I noticed that one home had a basketball hoop just to the side of the driveway. HOA must be pretty flexible?

Most HOAs don't seem to mind a portable hoop in a driveway. Permanent ones tend to be the problems. Our HOA bans permanent ones, allows for the sort that can be moved (as my hubby and daughter are out shooting hoops with the member of the HOA board as I type this!)
