Crabtree Creekview on Claremont

Raleigh, NC
4 bedrooms
3 bathrooms
1 half bath
4288 sq feet

Another example of this trend is this new home on Claremont. A lot on a sharp curve that backs up to the greenway, this 4288 square foot house actually has a .51 acre lot, but it seems small to the onlooker because of the building's scale. Notice the natural setting of the previous home. Several new homes have already been built on this segment of the street, many in an updated craftsman design. When I see a home like this, I am certain it is built on spec and not going to be bought by people who have connections to the old neighborhood. The price tag and the height are at least double that of its neighbors.

It is said that on a clear day, the residents of this house will be able to see all the way up the creek to the Soleil Center from their back porch.
