Wake Forest, NC 27587
Within walking distance of Downtown Wake Forest, Traditions is a beautiful neighborhood with the accessibility of a city neighborhood while retaining the openness and privacy of a suburb. A stone fence engraved with “Traditions” welcomes you into the neighborhood and leads you down a street to the majority of the properties. Thick trees stand on the opposite side, acting as a beautiful natural barrier between the development and the Wake Forest Reservoir, to the west.
