Community Amenities

“Welcome to South Lakes Living” Phase II opened in 2017

South Lakes Living is discovering nature on our on-site greenway trails and cooling off in our two luxurious pools. It’s soaking in the sun as you leisurely paddle along our scenic, 30-acre lake. Most importantly South Lakes Living is your bridge to life’s new adventures and where that journey takes you is entirely up to you.

Developed in a serene, natural setting that includes over 120 acres of vast open space and greenways, South Lakes is Fuquay Varina’s first master-planned community.

Built around a lifestyle we call “South Lakes Living,” we urge you to enjoy the simplicity of small town living while sitting just 15 minutes from all the big city amenities and entertainment that Raleigh, Cary, and the entire Triangle area has to offer.
