Moving to Cary

Hello Ladies. My husband and I are likely moving to Cary for his job by the end of the year. We'll be moving from CT. I've been looking at several complexes online and would appreciate any recommendations you could offer. All of the "ratings" I see online seem to very one sided, so I'm having a hard time trying to be objective. We will likely have a short trip down to find housing so we'll want to maximize our trip.

I know that living in a complex will be a much different atmosphere than where we live now, but I'd really like to move somewhere that will be quiet and have more families/ young professionals. We've lived in complexes before, so I know that depending on the construction, some buildings are quieter than others. We are only looking for a one bedroom, and don't have any kids or pets. I'd like to stay away from the college population. We're pretty mellow people. 

Here are the complexes we're considering:

The Villas at Centerview

Legacy Crossroads

The Ashborough

Stratford Apartments

The Lodge at Crossroads

The Windsor at Tyron Village

We're looking to stay in the Crossroads area because it would be close to my husband's work as well as other shopping, so we could save on gas. I sincerely appreciate any advice and help you could offer. Thanks in advance!

Re: Moving to Cary

  • Some friends lived in The Ashborough, and they seemed to like it.  No complaints that I know of.


  • Have you looked into renting a house in Cary?  
  • My husband and I just moved to Pinehurst, NC from Tennessee. We renting a house and love our neighborhood. I can't give you any advice on the apartments, but i can tell you the Southern Pines, Aberdeen and Pinehurst area is very nice :)
  • My husband and I live in Brier Creek, and we go to Crossroads often (mostly because the Bed Bath and Beyond there is HUGE!!). Our complex is owned by Colonial Properties ( and they have a few others in the area that are pretty much identical. Congrats on your husband's new job!! We're also new to the area and moved for a job I got
