Copperleaf is on my list of Best Cary Neighborhoods because It has large lots compared to most new home neighborhoods with city water and sewer, homes built by the Triangles best custom builders, a community pool, good schools, and is adjacent to the 24 mile American Tobacco Trail. The homes in Copperleaf are large and beautifully detailed in a classic style. It’s pricy and homes start in the mid 750’s and go up in the millions. It’s not pretentious though and very family oriented.Homes for sale in Copperleaf
Copperleaf Glen is a new phase of Copperleaf, one of my favorite Cary neighborhoods, just across Morrisville Parkway from the original Copperleaf. One of the things I have liked about Copperleaf is the variety and competition you get with several different builders building in the neighborhood. The new phase only has two builders, Future Homes by Jim Thompson and Robuck Design Build. Both do a very good job but the new phase will be different. Most of the homes in Copperleaf are in the mid 800’s and higher. Prices have increased nicely in the past couple of years. The new phase has 80 lots.

Cary schools are good and are part of the Wake County School District. The schools are high tech and have excellent sports and art programs.Take a look at the Copperleaf amenities.There is a pool with water slide, playground, trails winding through the neighborhood and the neighborhood is adjacent to the historic American Tobacco TrailThe houses in Copperleaf are full of custom details. I like to look at the trim work in a home while it is under construction. It’s easy to see how the pieces of wood fit together and really see the master carpenters work. Sometimes paint and caulk can hide flaws that won’t show up until the wood has dried over time.
