Preston Village Video
Hi, it’s Marianne. I’m on my way over to Preston Village in Cary to show you what a resale neighborhood looks like. It’s one of the most popular neighborhoods in Cary.
“Welcome to Preston Village.” That’s what the sign says, and it is very welcoming. As you drive around the circle, it’s very landscaped, and it’s this huge common area circle at the entrance to the neighborhood. There’s a gazebo. Right on the corner is a playground, and it’s quite large. You just can’t really see it because of all the trees, which is nice, the shade. There’s a lake with a fountain and a swimming pool. We’ll take a look at the fountain and the pool closer up. You can see the playground off in the distance and the gazebo on the water, see people with their fishing rods out there. And then, this is the pool. It doesn’t have a water slide. It’s not a massive pool, but it’s a great neighborhood spot for everybody to get together.
Homes in the neighborhood run from about 3,200 square feet to a little over 4,000. There are a few basement homes. Prices are generally in the mid-6s and houses stay on the market an average of five days, especially if they’re good. Some of the houses have been updated, but when someone’s lived in a house since the ’90s, they might have updated it 10 years later, so it might not look updated to you, but to them, it’s beautifully updated.
There’s a lot of the two-story family rooms. This is kind of a typical open plan. Maple cabinets were in style when these homes were built, as well as a white hydrofoil cabinet. Some people have kept their white cabinets, but there was a lot of those torn out during the period of dark wood. Some people just kept their white cabinets and put in a cherry island to make it look more updated. Sometimes people ask me why they didn’t go ahead and update the island when they updated the cabinets. Another thing builders did, brass was going out and chrome and brushed was coming in, so they mixed the metals, sort of like we do now. Brick was really popular. The rest of the house, though, other than the front, is siding, and it could either be fiber cement, which is a wonderful product, or Masonite, which can have terrible problems if it’s not kept up properly.
One of the reasons the neighborhood is so popular is because of the location. It’s adjacent to Green Hope Elementary School, one of the best. It is also near Green Hope High School, Green Hope Elementary School Park, and the Cary Tennis Park, which has 32 courts, 7 of which are covered. Just a mile and a half up the street is Stone Creek Village, which is a shopping area with restaurants. There are grocery stores. And across the way, there are even more restaurants and more things to do.
