There is a separate poolhouse with plenty of storage. The back of the property is fenced in to keep your pets in and the deer out, and the area around the home has been professionally lighted and landscaped.Enjoy the convenience of all Raleigh has to offer, yet the privacy feels like you are a million miles away from the bustle of the city!
