South Lakes Real Estate

As Fuquay-Varina’s first master planned community, South Lakes is a well-established, desirable neighborhood, and in 2009, the North Carolina Home Builders Association awarded it Master Planned Community of the Year. Located close to U.S. 401 and Highway 55, South Lakes is just a few miles from the two downtowns of Fuquay-Varina, and seventeen miles from downtown Raleigh.

True to its name, residents at South Lakes enjoy a 30-acre lake, complete with pier, kayak launch, and picnic shelter. In addition to the lake, greenway trails and parks provide more opportunities to get outside and explore nature. The community also features multiple amenities, including a recreation area, swimming pool, water slide, and playground. Close to great schools, shopping dining, and entertainment, South Lakes lives up to its motto of “Small Town. Big Plans.”

If you’re looking for a lakeside oasis, but also want to stay close to all the Triangle has to offer, find your new home at South Lakes.
