The town of Rolesville, North Carolina offers small town charm just minutes from bustling Raleigh. One neighborhood that exemplifies the appeal of Rolesville is Willoughby.

This master-planned community combines natural beauty and modern conveniences.

Brief History of Willoughby

Willoughby is a new home community that began development in 2019. Located off Adkins Ridge Road, Willoughby sits on over 100 acres of scenic North Carolina countryside.

The community is being developed by homebuilders like Drees Homes and HHHunt Homes. These builders are known for their quality craftsmanship and diverse architectural styles.

The Willoughby community is a testament to this, with notable developers such as Drees Homes and HHHunt Homes LLC contributing to its allure.

These builders are known for their commitment to quality and have established Willoughby as a desirable location for families and professionals alike.

One of the premier amenities of Willoughby is the included membership to nearby Granite Falls Swim and Athletic Club.

A Local Real Estate Perspective

As a Rolesville real estate agent, I highly recommend Willoughby for homebuyers seeking a private, natural setting while still being close to area conveniences.

The included athletic club membership provides a resort-style amenity that is rare for the area. With new home construction underway, buyers can build their dream home with custom upgrades in a peaceful community.

Between its location, amenities, and home quality, Willoughby offers an outstanding lifestyle for individuals and families alike.
