The secret is out. The Triangle’s hottest up and coming area is the town of Holly Springs. Consecutively voted as the Safest City in North Carolina as well as the Best Place to Raise Kids, Holly Springs is shaping to become the southern piece of suburban heaven that many Midwest and Northeastern transplants are seeking. Here in this post are the top reasons McNeill Burbank has chosen to build in Holly Springs as well as the deciding factors for many of our homeowners. We hope the spotlight on this charming town will help you make the easy decision to move to Holly Springs!
Large Yards, Spacious Living
It all comes down to SPACE. The Raleigh Durham area has experienced enormous economic and developmental growth in the past two decades. Developers and builders are working hard to keep up with the rising tide of new businesses and residents in the Triangle. The surplus of homeowners in the area has incentivized many new home communities to break ground and offer a plethora of living options accompanied by desirable amenities. A caveat though of many master plan communities is lot size, which often determines neighbor proximity. Now do not be mistaken that one huge sell of the south is the friendly hospitable people. A good neighbor is never hard to come by in North Carolina, but a few feet between your home and theirs might be a little trickier to find in the Triangle.
Holly Springs is the answer for future homeowners seeking a sizable lot within a master plan community. 12 Oaks is a premier golf course community located in Holly Springs that boasts luxury McNeill Burbank homes nestled on lots with expansive yards. Homeowners in 12 Oaks can enjoy the comfort of their sprawling lawns that allow a good-size breath between neighboring homes. Down the street is an even more serene depiction of southern suburbia by the name of Trinity Creek. Trinity Creek is one of the newest developments in Holly Springs and boasts wide quiet streets tastefully populated with grand homes by McNeill Burbank. Trinity Creek homeowners claim some of the best new home lots in the Holly Springs area that are still minutes away from shopping, dining and entertainment.
Location, Location, Location. Holly Springs is situated strategically minutes from the Downtown Raleigh area. This is a major selling point for business professionals who are employed with companies downtown, but would much rather live outside the hustle & bustle of the city. Having a suburb just a few miles from the downtown area is extremely attractive for young families who would opt for more square footage on a larger lot. Holly Springs also offers vastly more shopping options than the neighboring downtown area. Holly Springs Towne Center is home to a Target, Petco, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Bed Bath & Beyond. The center also boasts an O2 Fitness, Starbucks, Panera and AMC Dine-In. Down the road in the Shoppes of Holly Springs is a Harris Teeter as well as a Walmart Supercenter. For homeowners commuting beyond Downtown Raleigh, the Western Wake Freeway allows RDU, RTP, Durham, Chapel Hill, North Raleigh and Wake Forest to be quick zips from the front door. Homeowners in Holly Springs essentially never feel too far away from any of the excitement within the Triangle. 12 Oaks and Trinity Creek are both located on Holly Springs New Hill Road, which places the communities under 1 mile from the Holly Spring Business Park, 2 miles from the Towne Center and 5 miles from Western Wake Freeway exit.
Small Town Charm, Big City Life
One expectation when moving to North Carolina is the unique charm of the South. Many folks who choose to relocate to the Tar Heel state do so in hopes of a friendlier more hospitable atmosphere. Holly Springs does not fall short of this southern staple and is actually a rare commodity in an ever-growing metropolitan area. Homeowners in 12 Oaks and Trinity Creek have the enjoyment of living in a suburb that embraces a quieter and slower pace in comparison to its overcrowding busy counterparts. Downtown Holly Springs is home to roughly 60 businesses many of which are locally owned. The local farmers market, Town Hall and popular historic event venues are also located in Downtown Holly Springs.
Holly Springs is the best of both worlds though. The modern conveniences of the city are sprinkled throughout the town thanks to smart infrastructure planning. Holly Springs residents do not have to leave the comfort of their charming community to enjoy big city amenities. AMC Dine-In is a huge crowd pleaser for families in the area. At AMC moviegoers have the pleasure of reclining in premier stadium seating while being served handcrafted food and drinks. Holly Springs is home to a handful of well-known local breweries including Carolina Brewing Company and Aviator Brewing Company. Finally the Ting Park is a 1,800 seat multi-sport stadium that is used for parks & recreation athletic programs, community sports leagues, concerts and community events as well as collegiate baseball.
