Entrance to Picardy Pointe in Cary, NC
There are a great deal of outstanding neighborhoods throughout Cary, Apex and Raleigh for home buyers to consider. Everything from urban and walkable to wooded and private is available; it just depends on what you’re looking for.

So, to help you wade through all the terrific options, we’re launching a series of “Living In …” blog posts that will explain, in brief and over time, area neighborhoods that you may consider worthwhile. Obviously, there is no better way to experience a community than taking some time to tour it, which we would be glad to help you do.

Let’s start with Picardy Pointe in Cary, a shaded, family-friendly community located ideally between Cary Parkway and US-64, which leads into Apex. Its location offers an array of regional amenities, including an easy path from the neighborhood directly to the paved walking trail around Apex lake. Just about any time of year will find the path busy with walkers, runners, happy dogs and families pushing strollers. Which, pretty much explains the interior of the neighborhood as well.

Okay, so in the interest of full disclosure, both of us live in Picardy Pointe with our families, and we would be happy to explain why. The homes here offer a wide variety of floor plans and great lots, offering privacy, room to play and creatively landscape. It’s also a pool and tennis community. Both the pool and courts see plenty of use, which ensures annual dues (around $630 in 2009) are appreciated and put to good use. The summer brings pool parties, kids events and even some fun nights for the adults.

And when you need to get out of the neighborhood for the night, you should have no problem finding a restaurant or bar, as we are quite close to Cary Crossroads or Beaver Creek Commons in Apex. Both Crossroads and Beaver Creek are regional shopping centers with just about every national retail and restaurant chain you can imagine and even a great number of locally-grown establishments.

A lot of professionals live in Picardy Pointe and have little trouble heading toward the office parks in Cary, Morrisville, Raleigh or Research Triangle Park via Cary Parkway, US-64 or Hwy. 55. Best of all, many people can avoid the heavier traffic along I-40 with a number of alternate routes into the business districts. Like we said, there is only so much we can put into a blog post but hope this helps at least introduce the neighborhood we love so much. If you want to get a closer look, please give us a call or zip us one of those electronic messages. We’re happy to help.
