There is a brand new elementary school, Sycamore Creek, just outside of Harrington Grove in Raleigh, in the NW corner, so it is convenient to I-540, I-40, RDU airport, RTP (Research Triangle Park) and Durham. There are also other highly-rated schools that are within 5 miles. Brier Creek Shopping Center is only a few minutes from the neighborhood. Best of luck.
Here are some sites for you research:
I too lived in NY and relocated to Cary and love it here. I live in Western Wake and think it's wonderful place to raise a family. If you have any questions feel free to give me a call (919.475.6340).
I am NOT a real estate agent, and I do not want to sell you anything.
I am from the Rochester area....have been living in the Southern Wake County for over 10 years....and I know you'll LOVE it here!! Please feel free to contact me if I can be of assistance in way as you make plans to relocate. Feel free to call me directly at 919.730.7746.
Best of luck!
Hi there! I am glad to hear you are considering a move to North Carolina. Except for a few years in Tennessee, I have lived here most of my life. The pace of life is slower, but not backwoods! The cost of living is reasonable, and home prices, while not on the bottom of the chart, are still very, very reasonable here.
I am located in the Raleigh/Durham area. Raleigh is located in Wake County, which was cited on CNN last week as the 6th fastest growing county in the US. While Raleigh is certainly growing, so are the bedroom communities surrounding....and that is where I spend the majority of my time. I have access to a great supply of homes for clients...homes that have a 'country' neighborhood atmosphere but are within a 15-20 minute commute to the city. The majority of my work takes place in the area just north of Raleigh; Wake Forest, Franklin and Granville Counties. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the great communities you will find and the wide choices of homes and floor plans available to you.

I'd love to add you to the list of our happy homeowners!
