Cary is one of the fastest growing communities in the area, with tree lined streets and well groomed subdivisions.
I have a number of neighborhood tours on my website that will give you a quick overview.

The North Raleigh area has a number of great communities that fit your criteria. I would recommend that you check out Bedford at Falls River (I-540 to Falls of Neuse exit - about 20 miles or 1/2 drive time to Cary in traffic).
Bedford is a large, planned subdivision modeled after a turn-of-the-20th century neighborhood. Miles of sidewalks lined with trees, playgrounds throughout the neighborhood, a large clubhouse with a competition swimming pool and large children's pool with slide, tennis courts and a retail area with several small restaurants and other businesses. Bedford is also now connected to the Raleigh Greenway, a biking/walking paved trail which winds for miles along the Neuse River. Your required price range is in line with some very nice homes in Bedford. There are quite a few private schools in the North Raleigh area.
Please feel free to contact me directly if you would like more help with finding a home in the area. Thanks!
It may take you a little time to settle, but once you get used to the space, you will like it... congrats. .

First of all, congratulations on moving to our area! I moved here 20+ years ago and very happy I did! The best way to narrow down the specific neighborhoods and homes is to select a buyer's agent who can do all the "leg" work for you! In our are it will not costs you anything, as most sellers pay your buyer's agent fees. Plus, this agent will dedicate the time for you and will make your travel/search very easy!
We have many neighborhoods that your family would like, the best way to search is to identify those that have pool/club house, etc, recreation that your family will enjoy. Also, look for locations of the Catholic schools in the area and this will give you another list of neighborhoods that you may want to look at.
PS: I live next to one of these schools, off Leesville Rd in NW Raleigh and there are several communities that you can visit here...
