The Highlands, Cary, NC: Affordable Neighborhood with Large Lots and Trees!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Realty Arts NC Broker License #235526
Highlands, Cary, NC 001

The Highlands, nicely-located along the Southwest Cary Parkway is representative of affordable homes in Cary NC.
Developed in the late 1970's by the Westminster Company, The Highlands consists of .25 acre and larger heavily wooded lots in a convenient central Cary, NC, location. Many of the streets are cul-de-sacs and therefore the traffic is quieter in those areas.

Bing Map of The Highlands:

Varous home styles comprise The Highlands, with single level homes predominating. There are also 1.5 story homes and 2 story homes.
But the trees dominate the view. A mixture of pines and hardwood trees has reached maturity, as the homes were constructed at a time when the land was not scraped of vegetation prior to construction.
