Scottish Hills Neighborhood Cary NC

Scottish Hills Neighborhood Cary NC is one of the town’s best kept secrets. It is in a prime location in the middle of Cary bordered by Cary Parkway and Old Apex Road and Maynard Road. The homes in Scottish Hills were mostly built in the Seventies, so the lots are bigger and the trees and landscaping is mature and it makes a big difference. There are a mixture of split level homes, Cape Cod style homes, ranch and two story homes in the neighborhood.

Some of the homes on the market, and recently sold were completely renovated with hardwood floors, new windows, new kitchens etc. Some are sold with little or no updating, the attraction being the location as homes in Scottish Hills do not stay on the market for long.

About RaleighCary

George Wilson is owner and Broker in Charge of Raleigh Cary Realty, an independent Real Estate firm headquartered in Cary , North Carolina. "In 2008, I was working for a big national Real Estate company. A client of mine who I'd just helped purchase a home two months before got laid off from his job and wanted to quickly list her home. When I charged the client less to help her out, the firm was very upset with my decision. I opened Raleigh Cary Realty shortly thereafter, with a vision that we'd always have the flexibility to do the right thing for our clients, no matter what." -George Wilson
