Holly Springs, 27540
DISCOVER SUNSET RIDGE
Just east of Downtown Holly Springs, Sunset Ridge is a comfy neighborhood full of cul-de-sacs and trees. Nicely kept lawns and landscaping are characteristic of the landscape as you travel past the impressive houses on either side of the smooth street. The houses are spaced far enough apart for each to stand alone and have its own space, yet close enough together to promote a strong community within the development.
Where Is It?
The Sunset Ridge neighborhood is just two miles west of Downtown Holly Springs, 10 miles south of Cary, and six miles north of Fuquay-Varina. Holly Springs Road represents the northernmost edge of the development, while Sunset Lake Road represents the east most. Sunset Ridge is within comfortable commuting distance of Raleigh, and it’s only 30 miles to both Durham and Chapel Hill.

Jones Park is just a five minute drive down the road and features a fully loaded playground, picnic pavilions, and a disc golf course for endless outdoor fun.
