Why Preston Village?



Preston Village Greenway connects Upchurch Meadow Road with the 0.7 mile Louis Stephens Street-Side Trail. It skirts the edge of Green Hope Elementary School Park and connects up with the walkways across the street at the Cary Tennis Park. Plans are to continue to develop the street-side and greenway system in this area to connect up the neighborhoods, parks and schools.


The neighborhood was created in 1994, and had a successful launch with a number of homes that were part of 1995 "Parade of Homes." Most of the building and homes were finished in 2005.

Most homes are custom built, and range from 2400 - 5500 square feet.
