North Ridge Homes for Sale in Raleigh NC are located within established neighborhoods surrounding the prestigious, North Ridge Country Club. The club was chartered in 1967, and was then purchased by its members in 1978 and became a private, family owned club. North Ridge is mostly comprised of traditional homes constructed in the 1970’s, with a smattering of newer homes and complete renovations. Because of the year most of these homes were built, the floor plans are not as open and functional as newer homes.
Many home buyers have chosen to renovate homes in North Ridge because of the estate feel, larger lots and wooded setting, especially our golf enthusiast! One of the nice attributes about North Ridge is that there is a wide range of pricing, plus an array of single family and townhome options. This gives home buyers who want to live in a beautiful, established community like North Ridge more opportunities to find a home within their budget! Plus, it’s not easy to find tree lined streets and beautiful landscapes within neighborhoods anymore! The thing you have to keep in mind is that many homes will need to be updated, and the price will usually reflect that. One story or ranch homes are some of the most sought after plans in North Ridge!
The North Ridge Golf Club is no doubt at the forefront of the community! The club is located on nearly 400 acres of rolling hills in one of the most beautiful sections of Raleigh! The two championship golf courses are The Oaks and The Lakes, and were originally designed by golf course architects Gene Hamm & George Cobb. The courses were recently updated by John LaFoy, who has also done work at Augusta!
The country club amenities also include a 70,000 square foot clubhouse that was updated in the 1990’s, plus an Olympic sized swimming pool, a 4400 square foot tennis and fitness center and club restaurant! The boundaries of North Ridge are Falls of Neuse Road, Spring Forest & I-540. With the 540 being so convenient, residents can be at RDU airport or Research Triangle Park in about 30 minutes, 15 minutes to downtown Raleigh and 10 minutes to Brier Creek.
