Home Buyers Can’t Get Enough of Heritage

Heritage Wake Forest is a master-planned community that is located a couple of miles south of Downtown Wake Forest.

1. Abundant Resort-Style Amenities

It’s not everyday that a neighborhood makes lists like “Best Place to Play Golf” by The Wake Forest Weekly and “Top 25 North Carolina Golf Courses” by the NC Golf Panel. But Heritage Wake Forest — its golf course, that is — did just that.

In addition to Heritage Wake Forest’s semi-private course, the neighborhood also features:

  • two swimming pool complexes, one with a lazy river
  • lighted tennis courts
  • access to Wake Forest Anytime Fitness
  • club social events
  • greenway trails
  • pond with a fishing pier
