Tucked away just north of Raleigh off Cone Manor Lane, Linville is an exclusive private gated community consisting of just 46 luxury estates built between 2005-2009.
The heavily wooded area was developed to emulate the picturesque mountain communities of North Carolina.
Linville was constructed within a mature hardwood forest, with homes sited on sprawling 1-7 acre lots.
The neighborhood features a gated stone entryway leading to winding streets surrounded by natural buffers and creeks. Home sizes range from approximately 4,000 to over 8,000 square feet.
An active homeowner's association maintains standards and gates the entrance.
Notable Areas and Features
Some of Linville's most notable streets include:
Cone Manor Lane - The gated entrance lined with wooded 1-2 acre lots and Georgian, Colonial, and contemporary luxury homes.
Thornblade Circle - Secluded cul-de-sac featuring Linville's largest estate homes ranging up to 8,000 square feet on 3-7 acre wooded parcels.
Chestnut Hill Drive - Flanked by European-inspired designs, Chestnut Hill Drive homes range from 5,000 to 7,000 square feet on similarly sized private lots.
In addition to luxury homes, Linville offers a walking path connecting to the adjacent Stonemoor neighborhood, providing access to recreational amenities like a pool, tennis court, and gathering lawn.
Nearby Shopping and Dining
Though largely residential, Linville provides easy access to Raleigh destinations like North Hills and Falls of Neuse, including:
Second Empire Restaurant - This AAA four-diamond restaurant in a Victorian mansion excels at refined entrees like duck, rack of lamb, and seafood.
Vivace - For fine Italian cuisine, Vivace offers homemade pastas, veal chops, seafood, and more in a contemporary setting with an extensive wine list.
Sullivan's Steakhouse - Sullivan's offers premium steaks, seafood, and cocktails in an elegant dark wood and granite setting. Live music nightly.
Whole Foods Market - This upscale grocer provides organic produce, meat, dairy, and products. The prepared food section is excellent.
Triangle Town Center - This major mall provides department stores, boutiques, chain restaurants, and a movie theater.
Accessibility and Location
Despite its secluded ambiance, Linville provides relatively easy access to major Raleigh destinations.
It sits just minutes from I-540, allowing a quick 10-15 minute drive to Research Triangle Park. For commuting, downtown Raleigh can be reached in 15-20 minutes.
