Welcome Home to 5241 Linwick Drive, Fuquay-Varina, NC | Marcom Place

MARCOM PLACE is located on the “North” side of Fuquay-Varina and is full of transitional 2000-3000 square foot homes on .5 acre – 1 acre sized lots. This charming neighborhood is one of the most established in Fuquay-Varina and you don’t see homes come up for sale in it very often, better hurry!

“We were first attracted to our home because of the quiet neighborhood and large yard, this has been a great home for my family and my kids have thrived here and made lifetime friends. Marcom Place is an amazing place to live“.

This 3/4 Bedroom open plan has already been tastefully updated for you. Bamboo flooring, new carpet, an updated kitchen, and even a new roof and siding make this home a rare find.

This is not your typical 3 Bedroom plan; there is a formal Dining Room with french doors that is now being used as a Home Office and the 2nd floor boasts 3 Bedrooms PLUS a Bonus/4th Bedroom and Nursery/Office off of the cathedraled Master Bedroom. Lots of room to grow!

“The open floor plan makes this home a great gathering place for friends and family.”

Offered at $335,000.
