There’s something for everyone in Lakestone Village!
This quaint neighborhood sits just North of the town of Fuquay-Varina right off of Highway 401 / Main Street. Established in 2004, Lakestone offers a variety of home styles and price ranges from the $200,000’s to the $400,000’s. Most are on small lots giving the neighborhood a Charleston feel complete with porches and tree-lined streets. Lakestone offers an easy commute to Raleigh, Fayetteville and is even a short 120 minute ride to North Carolina’s coast. Lakestone Village also has a high walk-ablilty score; take an evening stroll to Kohls, Applebees or several other retail establishments and restaurants nearby.
The concept for Lakestone Village incorporates single family homes, town homes, and a Village Center with quaint shops and services offered. Those who aren’t familiar with the neighborhood might not know there are two beautiful natural lakes in the “Village-Style” community with walking paths. There is also a gazebo, childrens park and a swimming pool. The L.E.A.K (Lakestone Events and Activities Planning committee) puts on regular social events for residents including pool parties, egg hunts, yard sales and more! See what they offer here.
