I live very close to Branston. It is located about 10 miles south of Raleigh.. Not in Apex, but in Apex's Mailing address. Very nice community on large .5 acre rolling lots. Some extraordinary homes built before the Great Recession. The community has nearly completed construction, and is in a fine Swift Creek area surrounded by many trees and you can even avoid the City taxes. Homes are generally around 3000 Sq. Ft. and most cost between $450 and $600k.
