We always love to hear our sellers story behind their home & what better way to share it with you! Here is what they had to say about their home in Apex:
Things you love about Apex: It is the Peak of Good Living! Named in the top 10 places to live, it has parks, trails, shopping, restaurants – everything you could want within a short drive. And despite all it has to offer, Apex has maintained its hometown feel with an awesome downtown area filled with unique stores and restaurants you’ll love exploring.
Where do you love to eat (think date nights, quick bites, upscale, the hole in the wall place): We love the Salem Street Pub downtown for a fun, family-friendly outing – this is also where we always go whenever we have guests in town. Peak City Grill is the perfect date night (or lunch!) spot – also fun for girls’ nights out. You can’t go wrong with a slice of Namoli’s pizza. If you’re looking for delicious Mexican food, Tacos Mexico is the place to go. It looks like a hole in the wall, but trust us, it’s amazing. And Buttercream’s Bakery has the BEST cupcakes!
Where do you do your grocery shopping & other conveniences (bulk items, pedicure, etc): We shop at theHarris Teeter in Haddon Place or the Target in Beaver Creek. For special steak nights, we’ll take the short drive to the Meat House close-by in Cary. For coffee, we get fresh beans roasted to order from Muddy Dog Roasting Company in Cary. The Beer Dispensary in downtown Apex has a wide selection of choices. Jay Andrews salon is reasonably priced and has an awesome staff of hair stylists. If you’re into antiques, Sunflowers on Highway 751 (just north of 64) has amazing finds at great prices! And if you’re looking for a unique gift, you can’t beat the selection you’ll find at all the stores in downtown Apex.
What were you drawn to when you bought your home: With all the accolades Apex is getting, there are a lot of new homes being built on small lots with little privacy. We fell in love with the backyard. We’ve had lots of fun gatherings like birthdays, dinner parties, and holiday gatherings, and the backyard has been the perfect place to host and entertain. We also loved the flow of the house – the connection between the kitchen and family room areas means you never miss a thing. To top it all off, the kitchen is wonderful, complete with granite countertops, and stainless appliances, including a gas range that cooks like a dream.
What do you love/enjoy about the area: We love the small town feel with the conveniences of suburban living. Apex takes a lot of pride in maintaining its uniqueness with annual events like the Christmas parade (complete with tree lighting, sleigh rides, and pancake breakfast with Santa meet-and-greet), Peak City Fest, Pig City Fest, and Jazz Festival to name a few. There is an amazing cultural arts center downtown that provides a variety of fun events for every age. Free concerts and movies are offered at the Apex Nature Park. You can’t beat the hometown feel of Apex! You are minutes from the American Tobacco Trail in Woodridge. And, if you need to get toRDU, RTP, Durham, or Chapel Hill – 540 is minutes away and will get you there in no time.
Tell us something about your neighborhood: Woodridge does neighborhood gatherings and activities like meet-and-greets at the pool, a Halloween “parade,” and neighborhood yard sales. Being an established neighborhood with sidewalks, it is a great neighborhood for walks or short runs. And, the neighbors on Tamora Court are awesome!:)
