Wake Forest is a charming, historic town located just north of Raleigh. You can walk just about anywhere in this unique small town community. Wake Forest has something for everyone; The Factory and Heritage Golf Club for sports enthusiasts, The Cotton Company and local boutiques for shoppers, and Wake Forest Historical Museum for history buffs. The original location of Wake Forest College now in Winston Salem, now houses the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Like Holly Springs, Wake Forest experienced big growth due to its new, development opportunities and having the available land needed to host beautiful, planned communities like Heritage at Wake Forest! Being less than 10 miles from Raleigh and less than half an hour from the airport, Wake Forest is a great location to enjoy small town charms, as well as city living without having to feel too far from it all.

The community offers quick, easy access to the Triangle's first class universities, the Research Triangle Park, Atlantic Coast Conference Athletics, professional sporting events, and world renowned golfing events. In addition, the beach is just over two hours away, while the mountains are a three hour drive so you are never too far from North Carolina's most popular vacation destinations.

Wake Forest offers a unique opportunity to choose to purchase from a rural setting rich with acreage, the historic section, or near the golf course community. If you have not yet experienced all that Wake Forest has to offer, then we recommend a day trip to check it out.
