View Available Listings in Norman Estates

Nestled just north of Raleigh off Six Forks Road, Norman Estates is an exclusive private residential community developed by Newland Communities beginning in the early 2000s.

The heavily wooded rolling hills were purchased to construct a luxury enclave with scenic views. Only 160 home sites across 300 acres were platted.

The first homes built were primarily large brick Georgian, Colonial, and European-inspired designs on 1-3 acre lots tucked back into the pine and hardwood forests. Home sizes range from 4,000 to over 7,000 square feet.

An active homeowner's association maintains standards and gates the entrance.

Today, Norman Estates contains a mix of completed luxury homes and vacant home sites available for custom builds.

The lush landscape and limited number of homes provide a private, secluded feel minutes from major Raleigh thoroughfares.

Notable Areas and Features

Some of Norman Estates' most notable streets include:

Wynstone Way - Lined with elegant brick Georgian and Colonial homes ranging up to 7,000 square feet on heavily wooded lots.
