Minimum 25 minutes to Downtown Raleigh. More during peak drive time.
A consideration to keep in mind when shopping for a home in the area south of Garner...
NC Department of Transportation has been accumulating property for the 540 freeway corridor for many years. It is easy to identify those parcels from the Wake County iMAPS, and your buyers' agent should do that for you. A listing agent will not, and a dual agent is restricted as to what information they can share. The dual agent has responsibility to the seller equal to any responsibility to you. Have your own buyers' agent do the legwork on this to help you gather information.
While that project is progressing slowly, it IS progressing. While there is a bit of doubt cast on the corridor due to environmental issues, it is not a slam dunk that 540 will not be build on that original planned corridor. Right now, NCDOT owns a corridor property between Crest of Carolina and Tavernier. You should look at that and proximity to any property you would consider. No one can tell you for sure where that highway will be, but you need to assess the risk if you are rolling the dice on a purchase in that area.
Sure is a pretty house, isn't it?...............
