Greystone Village - For Locals Only

one of those places you usually don’t find out about until later...

When you suddenly realize that this is the place you would like to call home...this is North Raleigh Fine Living.

There are many reasons that people are moving to the Raleigh area, but there is really only one reason why they decide to live in North Raleigh - the atmosphere and lifestyle is fantastic. Generally, North Raleigh is typified by rolling terrain and forested properties, with trails connecting many of the parks and lakes. There are established estate and country club developments as well as newer walkable neighborhoods, and even award-winning active adult communities. The area boasts a well-educated tax base and there are numerous community amenities for all ages like the AE Finley YMCA, American Institute of Healthcare & Fitness HealthPark, the Greystone Recreation Center, and the North Raleigh Arts & Creative Theatre.

“Wonderful area with lots of trees, near walking trails, not far from Falls Lake beaches, and there are several pool clubs you could join, as well as the YMCA off Baileywick Rd. The Lake Lynn community center has lots of activities for kids and adults.”

The shopping options are attractive as well and include places like Whole Foods, the Shops of Baileywick, and Steinmart. Dining choices are virtually unlimited and include such awesome eateries like Gonza, Sawmill Taproom, and Poppyseed Market. The plain fact that the area has become the central suburban location for the best of the Triangle doesn’t hurt either. North Raleigh is just a phenomenal choice to put down your roots and enjoy your lifestyle.

The Greystone Village Area

Greystone Village is a sprawling master community featuring 16 neighborhoods and more than 800 homes. Like most areas, the family history of this area lives on in names and places. Communities include Bakers Landing, Bluffridge, Carriage Bluffs, Chadleigh Pointe, Clandon Forest, Dunbarton, Parliament Pointe, The Springs, Stone Quarter, Valley Lakes, Vestavia Woods, The Wedges, Winchester Pointe, Windsor Ridge, Windsor Woods and The Woods. Originally developed in 1984, this expansive stretch of community nestled in the heart of North Raleigh features three lakes set among a variety of home styles, from single-family homes to apartments.

Before the first development of North Raleigh, all of the land in this area was used for farming, pasture land, and timber for hundreds of years, and until the 1980's it was many miles from the city limits of Raleigh.”

Central to Greystone Village is the Greystone Swim & Racquet Club, which features tennis, basketball and volleyball courts; an Olympic swimming pool and toddler pool; picnic areas; community grill; and gorgeous views of nearby Greystone Lake. Also within Greystone is the assisted-living community of Springmoor for the area’s senior residents. All of these amenities – coupled with the community’s convenient access to all points of the Triangle – make Greystone Village an ideal place to live.

“Beautiful. Especially in spring and fall. Exceptionally breathtaking snowfall scenery in winter (IF it snows, which seems to be less and less)” Greystone neighbor

Windsor Ridge Homes for Sale

One of the best ways to get a feel for the community is to take an in-depth look at one of the homes offered for sale. 8109 Windsor Ridge Drive is absolutely the finest home, currently for sale in Greystone Village. This home is an excellent example of North Raleigh Fine Living.

For starters, this rare North Raleigh ranch home has immense curb appeal. The landscape has been meticulously developed and maintained and is accented with appropriate hardscape and accent lighting. The attention to detail is obvious and is pervasive throughout the property, including the exterior living spaces in the private and fenced back yard.

The curved driveway and entry foyer are inviting and provide a generous welcome to your guests. The formal dining room is positioned to show off your finest furniture and china - it is a large space with an elegant vaulted ceiling. The two-story great room is framed by stately columns and is truly a fantastic space. From the loft railing above to the light-filled windows that flank the fireplace, this room is the centerpiece of the home. Just adjacent is the large kitchen and separate breakfast nook that are roomy enough for plenty of people, yet warm and cozy at the same time.

There are two generous bedrooms and full bath on the east side of the home. Each of these bedrooms are well-lit with plenty of closet space, and the rear bedroom has a private deck area as well. Upstairs, there is a large loft landing that overlooks the great room. There is also a huge bedroom with its own large full bath, and tons - literally almost 1,000 SF - of additional attic walk-in storage.

The master suite is located at the other end of the home and takes up the entire west side. There is a grand entry foyer that leads to a huge space, accented by a vaulted ceiling and tall windows. There is a private lounge area attached to the bedroom, replete with custom plantation shutters and an access to the deck - there are so many windows, it is more like a private sun room. The upgraded master bath has vaulted ceilings as well, and includes double sinks, travertine tile, a glassed shower, and circular spa tub. This space has been well designed as a master “retreat”.

The home has been carefully maintained throughout its life, and has had regular service to its systems and structure. The home has recently been inspected by a licensed home inspector, and a home warranty is being offered to the lucky purchaser just for added peace of mind.

Is there anything else I may have forgotten? Ready to move in? It is difficult to describe the fine features of this beautiful home. We’d be happy to give you a private showing - just give us a call.
