Heritage, Wake Forest, NC
Heritage in Wake Forest, North Carolina
Heritage Wake Forest is a planned community nestled in the rolling hills and forest that comprise a good part of North Carolina. The theme of this community is the outdoors. The developer’s love of hunting, fishing and camping shows itself throughout the community by framing every amenity with trees and grass.
Begun in 2000 as a golf course community, Heritage Wake Forest currently has 30 residential neighborhoods with a wide variety of housing options. The golf course winds through most of the development like a river of green velvet which gives many residents the aesthetic benefits of a golf course without the expense of membership. This community is designed to be attractive to all age groups and is so appealing that many residents expect to stay a lifetime.
