Austin Creek is a new community in Wake Forest, located off of Highway 96.  Homes are being built by Lennar, “where everything is included.” The community is just minutes away from shopping and dining as well as historic downtown Wake Forest.  In downtown Wake Forest, you may experience local tradition at Olde English Tea Room, grab a hotdog at Shorty’s or a cold brew at White Street Brewing Company.  You can take the kids to The Factory for ice skating, putt-putt, go karts and more.  Prefer to do more outdoors?  Head on over to enjoy the great outdoors with a day at Falls Lake State Recreation Area, the perfect spot for camping, hiking, fishing, boating and more.  You can also spend time enjoying the outdoors right in Austin Creek!  Lennar’s plans for the community include the large Linear Park, located within walking distance of this house!  Let’s not forget the pool and clubhouse just across the street!  We asked a local Wake Forest resident to share what makes this place so great…check out what she had to say!

What do you love most about Wake Forest?  “Living in Wake Forest, I find that we get to experience the small town and big city benefits, without having to be in the heart of a big city.  There is a definite sense of community, neighbors get to know one another & community events abound.  Wake Forest is just a quick drive into Raleigh, Durham (home of the National Champions, Duke Blue Devils), and even Chapel Hill, giving opportunity to utilize the shopping, dining, cultural and sporting activities that are offered.  It’s also great to be close enough to the area beaches that you can sneak off for a day trip;  the mountains aren’t too far either making a weekend getaway easy to do!

What are some of the best nearby conveniences?  “We have lots of small, locally owned businesses and the conveniences of the big box stores and chain restaurants.  We’ve got Walmart, Super Target, a couple of Harris Teeters and Lowe’s Foods within a 5-10 minute drive of this neighborhood.  We’ve also got Chili’s Red Robin, Buffalo Brothers, Applebee’s and so many others right here in Wake Forest.  There is no need to head into Raleigh when we have so much offered right here at home.”

As I mentioned before, with Lennar, “Everything is included.”  Some builders charge for upgraded finishes and details;  with Lennar, the standard is an upgrade.  We’re talking GE Profile stainless steel appliances, Moen faucets, granite countertops with designer backsplash, kitchen island with cabinet storage and electrical outlet, fully sodded yard and so much more!  Many families have made the decision to “go green” when possible and Lennar has done it’s part to make that easier at home.  The Lennar homes at Austin Creek are certified “Environments for Living and ENERGY STAR”, equipped with Lennox healthy climate MERV 16 air cleaners AND have energy efficient Low-E thermal pane vinyl tilt-sash windows with screens! 317 Austin View Boulevard is a part of Lennar’s Historic Collection & is the “Mann” plan;  it’s Lennar’s largest home in the collection and is one that your guests won’t soon forget.  With 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, this one’s got something for everyone!  This house features formal living and dining rooms plus an expansive kitchen that’s perfect for entertaining since it opens to a large breakfast area and family room.  The 2nd floor master and secondary bedrooms are designed to maximize privacy and the small alcove at the front of the home is the perfect place to do homework.
