We are facing an upcoming relocation and are starting to looking at potential subdivisions in the North Raleigh area. We would appreciate any recommendations. Our preference is to find something in the $450-500,000. Also, we would like to be within a 15 minute commute to either North Raleigh Christian Academy or Trinity Academy as we would like to send our children to a Christian school.

Just off the top of my head...as it is getting late and I'm heading to bed but wanted to give you something to search...try BEDFORD or WOODSPRING or BROOKHAVEN or BENT TREE.

That should keep you busy for a while!!!

Most neighborhoods east of Leesville Road will work as long as you are reasonably close to I-540. The gating factor for most of your commutes will be North Raleigh Christian Academy, as it is East of US-1; Trinity Academy is more centrally located near Creedmoor Road.

You will have a lot of options, so what will matter most is what you are looking for in a home. Larger lot or smaller lot? Near shopping, or a more secluded neighborhood? New home/neighborhood or a more established one? Home size and number of bedrooms? Where you and/or your spouse will be working, and how long of a commute are you willing to have?

Woodspring had 2 buildable lots (resulting from a decision not to use the lots for park/tennis). Two homes are being built, one is already sold and the other is a spec house still under construction and maybe early enough to get in to discuss finishes. I think Fonville Morrissey has the listing. Not sure what you are looking for but it's 4009 s.f., 6 BR, 5 1/2 BA asking $449. Woodspring is in a convenient location, close to shopping, access to 540, just off Falls of Neuse in N. Raleigh 27614 zip. Durant Rd is less than 1 mile, take that East and it turns into Perry and just a little farther and you're at NRCA. 4.6 miles/12 minutes- just under your 15 minute commute parameter

Oh, I forgot, even though these are new construction, Woodspring is about 10 yrs old and full of mature trees and beautiful landscaping. Not the typical "Sunshine Lots" you find with new developments.

You are probably wanting to look at the 27614 and 27615 zipcodes if you want to be able to make a choice once here.

If you decide on one or the other school, then it opens up zipcodes all around that school - eg: I know folks who live in wake forest and the other side of NRCA - they come in from the other direction (not capital blvd/durant rd way) and can zip in/out pretty easily.

Lots of options in lots of price ranges around both of those schools I am partial to 27614 zipcode myself b/c of county tax options and larger lot sizes because of the watershed.

Thanks for all the recommendations. I noticed that it seems like some neighborhoods, like Bent Tree have a large percentage of homes for sale. Is this because of issues directly related to the subdivision or this price range moving slowly?
