As with any fast-growing suburb, Holly Springs has quite a few new homes and developments. Most are two-story, with yards that have plenty of room for outdoor activities. More than a few homes have either a one or two-story veranda, making it easier to create new friendships with neighbors as they stroll by. Since most of the houses are newer, they are a great fit for today's busy households. They're also as beautiful and tastefully decorated on the inside as on the outside.
