Wendell Real Estate

Wendell is a town in Wake County, located twelve miles east of Raleigh, and made up of a population of just under six thousand residents. Situated next to Highway 64, Wendell provides easy access to the greater Research Triangle area. Among the safest cities in North Carolina, Wendell is also part of the Wake County school system, making it a great place to live for families.

Walking down Main Street, it’s no surprise to discover that Wendell’s motto is “small town, big charm.” From restaurants, to retailers, to even a new distillery, Wendell has a thriving downtown full of great dining and entertainment options. The town is also graced with beautiful, historic architecture, much of which is on the National Register of Historic Places. In the summer and fall, browse the Farmer’s Market. Throughout the year, you’ll find annual events such as Wendell Wonderland, a holiday exhibition of lights and decorations, or the lesser known, but just as fun, “Big Truck Day” in June, a favorite with kids of all ages.

Beyond downtown, you can kayak the Robertson Millpond Reserve, or take the kids to Wendell Park, which has a playground, tennis courts, and fields. And since the town of Wendell was recently awarded a grant to expand its walkability, pedestrian-friendly options are increasing, including greenways and sidewalks. Wendell has also expanded its artistic appeal by commissioning various murals throughout the community, and by hosting its first open-air art competition in 2016, which will soon become an annual event.

For those looking for a growing community that still retains its small town charm, Wendell welcomes you. To see more details on homes in Wendell, and to view a list of all neighborhoods with available homes, consult the information below.
