Learn more about Preston Homes

The Preston neighborhood in Cary, North Carolina is the premier area for golf-lovers who want to be close to the main attractions of the Triangle. A quick drive from Raleigh and Research Triangle Park, Preston offers traditional and contemporary-style homes, all with modern amenities. The golf course, which is spread out through this sprawling neighborhood, adds to the feelings of prestige and exclusivity that the custom homes invoke.

Development of the Preston community started in 1989, and has not stopped since. Each home is more or less custom built, which is why you may see a range of styles when driving through the neighborhood: traditional, transitional, contemporary, a mix of the three, and even some townhouses and condos.  Typically, each of the detached homes is situated on a 0.30 acre lot. The square footage of each home ranges from 2,200 square feet to 6,000 square feet, allowing plenty of room for families to play and grow.

Speaking of families, there are plenty of wonderful schools nearby for children of all ages. The nursery and preschools in the area include Preston Academy and Chesterbrook Academy. Chesterbrook Academy is also an elementary school, serving students in kindergarten through fifth grade, along with Green Hope Elementary School, Morrisville Elementary School, and Weatherstone Elementary School. The two nearby middle schools are East and West Cary Middle School, and the high schools are Green Hope High School and West Cary High School. Cary Academy is also close by and serves middle and upper grades. Cary Academy, Preston Academy, and Chesterbrook are all private schools, as are St. Michael the Archangel Catholic School (serving grades k-5), St. Mary Magdalene Catholic School (an elementary and middle school), and Cardinal Gibbons High School in Raleigh, if you are looking for non-secular education options.

Whether you are a solo home owner or large family, you can’t help but take advantage of the amazing amenities of the Preston neighborhood, the best of which is the Prestonwood Country Golf Club. Not only are there 54 amazing holes of golf to play, but the clubhouse itself offers dining, a state-of-the-art fitness center, steam rooms, 15 surrounding tennis courts, and a pool with a water slide and snack bar for summer fun. The proximity of the neighborhood to the Triangle means access to a number of high-end shopping centers, malls, movie theaters, parks, grocery stores, and more.
