Please check out the home search tool I have on my website www.PremiereTriangleHomes.com. This search tool will allow you to search by so many different variables such as proximity to schools, restaurants, places of worship, entertainment and so much more. You really could go wild using this search tool. I encourage you to check it out if you need to find out how close a particular home is to grocery stores, hospitals, gas stations or any other place of interest. Hope you find this useful!
