Holly Springs Real Estate

The town of Holly Springs is located twenty miles southwest of Raleigh, North Carolina. Just a few decades ago, Holly Springs was made up of a thousand residents. These days, it’s now home to thirty-two thousand people, and only expected to grow further in the coming years. Recently recognized as one of the safest cities in the state, Holly Springs also offers great access to Wake County schools, Research Triangle Park, and the surrounding Raleigh area.

According to legend, Holly Springs is named for a spring discovered by colonialists and shaded by two hollies. Back then, Holly Springs was a crossroads, and an important passageway to the Cape Fear River.

In modern times, Holly Springs is still a great crossroads to all the Triangle has to offer, as well as an attractive, well-planned community that provides residents with an extensive list of parks and greenways as well as cultural and recreational activities. Go fishing at Bass Lake Park, or take a class at the fitness center at Hunt Recreation Center. Attend a concert, or walk through an art gallery at the Holly Springs Cultural Center. Stop by the farmer’s market for fresh produce and other tasty goods. The annual HollyFest event exhibits local arts and crafts, as well as food, entertainment, games, and more. And on Main Street, you’ll find dining, shops, entertainment, and several local breweries.

For small town life with a full calendar of things to do, Holly Springs could be the perfect place to call home. To see more details on homes in Holly Springs, and to view a list of all neighborhoods with available homes, consult the information below.
