Nestled just outside of Raleigh in Clayton, North Carolina is the exclusive Old Mill Stream neighborhood.

This tucked-away country community offers residents privacy and natural serenity minutes from city conveniences.

History and Development

Old Mill Stream was established in 1997 by Mungo Homes as an enclave of luxury estate homes.

The neighborhood takes its name from its proximity to the Eno River and historic mill sites along the waterway.

Home construction began in the late 1990s, with new phases added over the years.

In total, there are around 160 homes ranging from 4,000 to over 6,000 square feet on lots of 2 acres or more.

Outdoors, homes showcase lavish landscaping, screened porches, outdoor kitchens, and scenic pond or woods views.

Neighborhood Amenities

While Old Mill Stream lacks a recreation center, residents can gather at the pool house with deck and pool.

There is also a picnic pavilion for events and a Nextdoor online community forum.

The neighborhood hosts annual block parties, yard sales, and holiday celebrations.

A Local Realtor's Perspective on Old Mill Stream

Its large estate homes on multi-acre wooded lots provide privacy and seclusion hard to match elsewhere.

For buyers looking to upgrade to luxury living, Old Mill Stream offers a rare opportunity. Homes here seldom hit the open market, so acting quickly is key.

Out-of-area buyers should connect with a knowledgeable local agent like myself to access off-market listings.

On the seller side, showcasing the wooded or water views both indoors and out is crucial. Staging and landscaping to highlight the home's best attributes will entice buyers.

With our team's relationships and marketing reach, we can connect motivated sellers with qualified buyers looking in Old Mill Stream.
