The Middle-of-Everything Lifestyle - Midtown Fine Living

Real Estate is all about Location, Location, Location...right? There’s really not much else to say about the opportunities to live within walking distance to all the best that the Triangle has offer. The Midtown area provides just such a suburban residential framework, surrounding one of the hottest lifestyle resources in the area - North Hills.

Popular North Hills destination amenities include events like the Midtown Farmers Market and Beach Music Thursdays, and there are numerous other dining and entertainment options including Regal North Hills Cinema, The Cowfish, Yard House, World of Beer, Mia Francesca, Fox and Hound, and Sparians. Great shopping is also a prominent feature in the area and includes such high end boutiques as Liles Clothing Studio, Hayley’s, Monkee’s of Raleigh, and Fink’s Jewelers. The shopping is not limited to bespoke and designer though - there is a very popular Target Superstore, a two-story Harris Teeter Grocery Store, and Office Depot as well. A complete list can be found at the North Hills website.

If walking to world-class shopping and dining is not enough, the Midtown area is perfectly situated on the north side of Raleigh, right off of the Interstate 440 Beltline at Six Forks Road. While the area is home to numerous office buildings, Midtown is a commuters dream - you can literally be just about anywhere in the Triangle within a 30 minute drive, including Research Triangle Park (RTP), all of the area Universities, and even the Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU).

A great lifestyle is more than just shopping and nightlife, you need to have awesome living options as well. Midtown offers a nice variety of residential flavors - from modern apartments and luxury condominiums, to custom single-family homes and established mid-century neighborhoods. There are also beautiful hotels and even a new retired living facility for active seniors.

Some of the most exciting residential opportunities are the older neighborhoods that area going through a gentrification process. Most of these areas were developed in the 1950’s and 1960’s with a suburban style that includes sidewalks and local community schools. The lots tend to be larger than in today’s typical planned community, and the the landscaping is mature and shady. Many of these homes have been expanded and upgraded with current finishes and features. However, the feel of these neighborhoods has retained the original charm. These areas offer fantastic asset opportunities for folks to reinvigorate an older house into a dream home.
