Willow Springs, NC....Southern Wake County's Best Kept Secret

Real Estate Agent with Barnes McQuade Realty

If you ever are driving through Southern Wake County maybe headed down 401 South to Fuquay Varina or towards Clayton on HWY 42 you may pass through a stop light or two in a rural setting you may wonder if you are in a township or just a forgotten rural area.  Willow Springs or Willow Spring (without the (S)) as some say is just that.....a hidden bedroom community with many subdivisions with large lots, a rural setting, but only 5 minutes from Fuquay Varina.....OR about 20 minutes from downtown Raleigh. 

A lot of people have overlooked Willow Springs because there is no Target there, no Wal-Mart, no Food Lion or Harris Teeter; it is so small the only thing it actually has is a Post Office...a very small one.  But in today's Real Estate Market that is exactly what some buyers are looking for; a community NOT a large CITY to live.  Kendall Hills is a subdivision that has been overlooked along with the Town of Willow Springs.  Lots are averaging almost an acre and home prices range from $275 ----to the high $300's.  Most of these homes have at least 2300 square feet or more....so statistically, you won't find that bargain in many places in the Triangle area.  When you can get a home for this size, age, acreage and convenience, you have found a bargain. 

So if you are searching for property in the Raleigh, NC area and don't want the hustle and bustle of big city life and don't want to commute 2 hours a day, Willow Springs should be at the top of your list to visit.  For more information feel free to visit us here.

Hi Stu,

   You're absolutely right! Willow Springs offers all of the beauty and solitude of the country, but it's close to everything! I live in Fuquay, but I love to drive around Willow Springs. You definitely get more bang for your buck too!
