The Triangle’s been growing in popularity (and population) over the past few years, thanks to its fantastic job opportunities, its low cost of living, and its phenomenal housing options. New residents flock to the area each and every day—a net of 40 people per day, actually, making Wake County the 46th most populous county in the US. And all these new people need somewhere to live—so the Triangle area has seen tons of new development and growth in its outlying suburbs, small towns, and country regions.
Our favorite up-and-coming community is called Willow Springs. It’s a rural area south of Raleigh between Fuquay Varina and Clayton. Looking for the perfect place to live in the Triangle? Here are five reasons you’ll love living in Willow Springs.
It’s True Country Bliss
Nestled into rolling fields, working farmland, and lush woods, Willow Springs is a true escape from big-city hustle into the peace, relaxation, and tranquility of the countryside. If you like waking to the sound of birdsong—rather than the hum of traffic—gazing out over woods and trees—rather than your neighbors’ backyards—and having a little room to roam in the great outdoors, then Willow Springs is definitely an area you’ll love to call home.
There are Tons of New Developments and Homes
Dreaming of a beautiful new home, of open floorplans, of walls of windows, of shiny stainless steel appliances, dreamy master suites, and Energy Star certifications? Then you’ll love what Willow Springs has to offer. This little town is growing fast with new developments!
You can find new homes in lovely new suburban communities—if you’re looking for more of a neighborhood feel—or even custom-build your own home, if you’re looking for something more luxurious or secluded.
It’s Close to All Kinds of Amenities
Country living doesn’t have to mean a 30-minute drive to the grocery store, not in Willow Springs, anyway. This spacious community might feel secluded, but it’s actually quite close to plenty of other towns and commercial areas, placing shopping, dining, parks, and entertainment within easy reach. Depending on where in Willow Springs you live, you might be a short drive from Clayton, Fuquay Varina, Garner, Angier, or even Raleigh.
There’s Tons of Employment Possibility
The Triangle is filled with possibilities. This thriving area is home to major national and international corporations, like IBM, Verizon, Cisco, Lenovo, and more. You’ll also find three major research universities—UNC Chapel Hill, Duke University, and NC State University. There are also a number of major health care networks and hospitals, like WakeMed, Duke Health, and Rex Healthcare. So if you’re looking for a good job… Willow Springs has you perfectly positioned to find it!
You’re Just a Short Drive from a Great Vacation!
Longing for a day at the beach, with the sand between your toes and the crash of waves in your ears? Or maybe you’re itching to get outside in the great outdoors, to strap on a backpack and conquer some rugged mountain peaks? Good news: either is easily possible, since Willow Springs is just an hour or two from the beach and two or three hours from the mountains and fantastic hiking!
