I always like to ask the seller specific questions about their house. It is definitely a great perspective on living in your new area & home. Take a look & see what the Dyer’s have to say:
Things you love about Cary:
We love Cary. It has a real family atmosphere with excellent schools, plenty of parks (one Cary park is in our neighborhood) and walking/biking trails (again, one is in our neighborhood), a huge variety of restaurants We are conveniently located just about half way between Crossroads Plaza and Waverly Place – both just a little over a mile from us. In addition to all the conveniences and amenities Cary has to offer, we feel very safe here. Cary is one of the safest cities of its size in the country.
Where do you love to eat:
We enjoy a variety of food – most within a mile or so of our house. Some of our favorite restaurants include: Pei Wei, Caribou Coffee, Carolina Ale House, City Barbeque, Briggs, NY Pizza, and the Angus Barn.
Where do you do your grocery shopping & other conveniences:
We have numerous grocery stores in our immediate area with a Lowe’s Foods right in our neighborhood strip mall (an easy walk) with Harris Teeter about ½ mile away. Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s are about a mile to mile and a half from our home. For bulk items we shop at BJ’s and for pet related items we shop at PetSmart. Our PetSmart is one of only 3 in the whole greater Raleigh area that has a Pet Hotel, doggy day camp and a veterinarian right on sight.
What were you drawn to when you bought your home:
We love the layout of our home. This is where we raised 4 children with plenty of bedrooms, a formal dining room, a screened in porch (we like to entertain) and a bonus room for the kids. We added French doors and utilized our living room as a study (very convenient for work from home days).
We also love the location of our house. We were specifically looking for a house on a cul-de-sac so our children could play basketball, kickball, etc. on the cul-de-sac with very little traffic to worry about. Further, unlike many parts of Cary, we have very easy access to Raleigh and RTP – from our house to the beltline/I-40, is only about a mile.
Finally, we loved the Olympic size swimming pool, club house and tennis courts. Many neighborhoods have very overcrowded pools, but not Wellington Park. With our oversize pool, it is a great place to unwind and relax with family, friends and neighbors.
What do you love/enjoy about the area:
We love the excellent school system, neighborhood lakes, Kids Together Park (at the edge of our neighborhood), quaint downtown Cary, very convenient shopping and convenient access to the greater triangle area.
Tell us something about your neighborhood:
First, we have truly wonderful neighbors and a true sense of community. We often have neighborhood parties and cul-de-sac get-togethers. Our neighborhood has a community email to keep current on events – or to buy or sell something. Most houses have mature wooded lots providing shade and privacy.
We absolutely love our neighbors (many have become life-long friends as we have been here for over 19 years) and though we are excited about moving into our dream house as empty nesters, we are equally sad to be leaving such a wonderful home and neighborhood.
