Millrace is a small, quiet community of 53 homes in a variety of architectural styles, including all-brick, executive, and colonial. Quite centrally located, Millrace is a five-minute drive from downtown Wake Forest with quick access to multiple K-12 or year-round schools including Heritage, Roseville, and Wake Forest (previously known as Wake Forest-Roseville). The neighborhood is situated twenty-five minutes from downtown Raleigh and roughly thirty-five minutes from both Research Triangle Park and RDU International Airport.
Residents can relax or enjoy fishing along the lakes at any of the six common areas. Neighbors are often walking along the shaded, tree-lined streets or lounging on their large front porches watching wildlife. Many homes have lakefront access directly on the property, while others include basements, pools, or large front and backyards.
