Due to it's proximity to the Triangle and major cities like Raleigh and Durham, world-class entertainment and large-city amenities are nearby.

Just down the road, less then 45 minutes away, homeowners of Granville County real estate can enjoy Durham's Performing Art Center for off-Broadway shows and entertainment. If professional hockey is your cup-of-tea one can visit the RBC Center in Raleigh to watch the Carolina Hurricanes in action.
