Brier Creek is a master-planned community strategically located near the intersection of Hwy 40, I-540 (Raleigh’s outer beltline), and Hwy 70 (Glenwood Avenue). This massive North Raleigh development sprung up in the 1990’s. Brier Creek was included HGTV Frontdoor’s Five Great Neighborhoods of Raleigh, due to its location, amenities and comprehensive offering of home options, which are only a few of the many great reasons to call this neighborhood your home when relocating to the Raleigh area.
Brier Creek is in the center of the Research Triangle Region
Brier Creek is right in the middle of the Triangle area made up of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hills. Its prime location is one of top reasons Tollbrother’s decided to develop this popular neighborhood.
Brier Creek is around the corner from Research Triangle Park (RTP). As the nation’s second largest research park, RTP is a huge employment hub employing over 70,000 people. It is currently undergoing a substantial rejuvenation with plans to spend $100 million dollars revitalizing the park’s center. Many of the Park’s employees live in Brier Creek for its convenience to both work and all the surrounding amenities.
The Raleigh-Durham International Airport is also a quick 10 minute trip away. Luckily, Brier Creek is not under the flight path, so residents have the advantage of living nearby without being burdened by a loud constant rumble of airplanes!
Brier Creek has over 2 million square feet of surrounding retail
Brier Creek Commons is an open-air shopping center featuring fashionable national retailers, small specialty shops, and a wide array of restaurant options from takeout to a Brazilian steakhouse. Enjoy the convenience of having Target, Walmart, Dicks Sporting’s Goods, Lowes Foods, Pier One Imports, Total Wine, Marshall’s, HomeGoods as well as many locally owned stores intermixed just minutes from your home.
Brier Creek Country Club
Brier Creek Country Club blends a welcoming neighborhood atmosphere with luxury golf and country club sophistication. The 18-hole golf course designed by Arnold Palmer and the country club sit at the center of the neighborhood. Membership also includes use of a 40,000 square foot clubhouse with banquet facilities for up to 360 guests, a members-only grill, fitness center with steam rooms, and a massage and spa center. The Swim & Tennis Pavilion features six lighted tennis courts, 3 pools (an 8-lane pool, a recreational pool, and baby pool), a waterslide and splash zone.
Charming and well-kept community
As a master planned community by an award-winning national home builder, Tollbrother’s, Brier Creek is a picturesque community. Neighborhood signs are landscaped with bright flowerbeds, the streets and roundabouts make for easy traffic flow, and common green areas, many of which include small white pavilions, are exquisitely maintained. There are sidewalks along both the neighborhood and connecting streets, making it easy for residents to stroll to the great amenities, take an evening run, or walk the family dog.
Brier Creek has a wide-variety of beautiful home options
Another great benefit of living in a master-planned community is the comprehensive options for homes. You can choose from six home collections; single family golf villas, carriage and tournament town homes, single family estate and executive homes as well as luxury condos! Homes range in price from the $200’s to over $1 million and in size from 1,500 SF townhomes to 6,000+ SF estate properties. Most homes have been built in the past 10 years and include the newest upgrades such as granite counters, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, and oversized master bathrooms.
Wake County Schools make Brier Creek ideal for families
Another great element about Brier Creek’s location just on the edge of Wake County, it that is provides residents with the accessibility of being near both Durham and Wake Counties while still being zoned for Wake County Schools, which are considered among the best in the region. Students for the most part attend Brier Creek Elementary School, Mills Park Middle School, and Panther Creek High School.
Minutes from The Angus Barn
The esteemed Angus Barn is a straight shot down Glenwood Avenue towards Raleigh, less than 10 minutes from Brier Creek. This award-winning restaurant frequently mentioned in the top 100 restaurants in the country is a must-try and the experience lives up to the hype.
Angus Barn is an expansive gourmet steakhouse in a barn-like setting sprawling over 16 acres made up of a wine cellar, lounge, restaurant store & cigar bar. Don’t fill up too much on the addictive crackers & cheese and save room for their succulent steaks and top-notch desserts including the famous pound cake & chocolate chess pie. It is a great restaurant for special occasions and especially during the holidays, when the grounds are beautifully decorated!
