I see that you are from Cambridge. I am originally from Boston...Dorchester specifically.
Morrisville is the perfect place for you. I've lived in Morrisville for 3 years now, it is very close to Cary. There are several Preston communities and some are located right near the golf course. My job is in Raleigh and the commute is perfect. I drive against the flow of traffic. As a reference for you, kind of like when I lived in Dorchster and worked in Braintree. My commute is similar, if not a little more easy. I'm almost positive that the commute to Holly Springs would be a breeze for you as well, but I'm not entirely sure.
Another area is Apex, also very near Cary.
I hope everything works out well for you and your wife.
P.S. I'm not a realtor, so this is just my opinion.
There are a number of good choices for you and we have several developments with the amenities you are looking for and a few with an Urban Feel with shops, places to eat, a gym and much more. And they are easy commutes to Holly Springs, Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill.
Give me a call or drop me a line so we can discuss your needs

In response to your paragraph,( not your post title) there are several communities that have homes like you have described. Are you planning a visit anytime soon? I would love to show you and your wife what the area has to offer.
Matt Peedin is correct, we can't answer the question in your title, but your post has plenty of other information that would help me find a good location for you and your wife.
