Homes for Sale
Homes in this area come in a wide range of prices, styles, and sizes.
Where to Live
Ideally it is best to live off of Parkwood Avenue, where most of the neighborhood's real estate options exist. Most of the houses are small and there are very few homes off of the streets running north and south. Parkwood Avenue is more desirable simply because Garyland Avenue to the sound faces the expressway and suffers from the consequent noise while, on the other hand, West Cary Street sees more traffic from the restaurants and businesses lining the avenue.
Where to Eat
There are some fantastic little restaurant spots in the neighborhood. Yes, there are a few chains, but the restaurant scene skews heavily towards the local. Mellow Mushroom is a regional chain, but worth mentioning. Their delicious selection of pizza is some of the best in the city, so while a chain, it is still unique and exceptional. Baker's Crust Artisan Kitchen @ Carytown is a must for anyone who calls Carytown home, while the southern strip of Cary Street is where most of the restaurants are located. From Weezie's Kitchen and Galaxy Diner to Don't Look Back, this is the place to be for foodies.
What You'll See
Most people who live here are professionals, as it has few large homes and even fewer large lots. However, for individuals who like living close to the action and the ability to walk to restaurants with an almost unique downtown area to itself, this is the perfect location.
Friday Night Fun
Friday night is a pretty happening time, especially towards the southern portion of Cary Street. Most of the restaurants also have bars inside, so it's easy to grab a drink while eating delicious food. The Byrd Theatre is located in this section of the community as well. The Byrd is a historical landmark that has been showing movies since 1928. It maintains much of the same charm as it did when it first opened. Following a show, Can Can Brasserie is an excellent spot for a beer or glass of wine.
The Perfect Sunday
There isn't much in way of greenery or parks in the neighborhood. Everything is more or less boxed off by the highways. There are options within a short walk or drive though, including Fountain Lake to the southeast. Walking down West Cary Street can be fun as there are frequent sidewalk sales going on. Galaxy Diner offers all day breakfast as well for those getting a late start to the day.
Plenty of restaurants to choose from • Close-knit community • Ability to walk anywhere.
Locals Don't Love
Noise from the south and west • No parks or public spaces.
