Nestled just outside North Carolina's capital city lies the friendly town of Knightdale.

Known for its small-town charm yet close proximity to urban opportunities, Knightdale provides residents with the best of both worlds.

One neighborhood that exemplifies this ideal blend is Princeton Manor.

Overview of Princeton Manor

While Knightdale itself traces back to the 1700s, Princeton Manor is a more recent addition, established in the early 2000s.

Developed by Homestead Land Development, the community was designed to provide resort-style amenities paired with beautiful custom homes.

Princeton Manor consists of around 440 homes nestled on wooded land near the Neuse River. Home styles range from traditional two-story to more unique carriage house plans.

Home Designs

Unlike many communities with pre-set floorplans, Princeton Manor offers completely custom-built homes tailored to each homeowner.

This allows for stunning curb appeal through unique architectural details. Inside, homeowners can customize layouts and finishes to match their lifestyle.

Popular home styles include traditional two-story, craftsman, cottage, and coastal designs. Home sizes range from 2,800 to over 4,000 square feet with 3-6 bedrooms and up to 6 bathrooms.

Luxury features like screened porches, finished basements, and first-floor masters cater to discerning buyers.

Princeton Manor Amenities

One of Princeton Manor’s standout features is its impressive recreational amenities.

The neighborhood boasts a swimming pool, cabana, tot lot, and walking trails—perfect for an active lifestyle.

The pool and cabana serve as gathering places for residents to come together for summer swim meets and community events.

Tot lots provide safe places for children to play nearby, while walking trails allow residents to enjoy the natural scenery.


Princeton Manor families are within the acclaimed Wake County Public Schools district.

Nearby schools include Hodge Road Elementary, Lake Myra Elementary, East Wake Middle, and Knightdale High. The area also provides access to several charter academies.

Higher education opportunities abound as well, with quick access to Meredith College, NC State, Shaw University, and more in Raleigh. Duke, UNC, and other renowned institutions are within an hour's drive.

Things to Do Nearby

Despite its tucked away feel, Princeton Manor provides easy access to big city attractions. Museums, concerts, pro sports, and abundant dining and nightlife are just minutes away in downtown Raleigh.

For outdoor fun, the Neuse River Trail offers 30 miles of scenic walking and biking. Anderson Point Park provides hiking, boating, and picnicking opportunities.
