Town of Holly Springs

Rich in natural beauty, heritage, and family-friendly activities, the nationally recognized town of Holly Springs, is the perfect setting for the community of 12 Oaks, as well as your family.

The 12 Oaks community in Holly Springs has been designated as one of Ideal-Living magazine’s 2016 Best of the Best in the category of college towns. “With Duke, NC State and UNC all within a 20-radius, 12 Oaks is right in the heart in one of the nation’s top centers of academic research and undergraduate excellence,” said David Mason, vice president for development for Landeavor, LLC, the community’s developer.

“It’s an honor to earn this recognition from the country’s leading authority for buyers in the market for primary residences, second homes or vacation retreats,” Mason said 12 Oaks is a 1,729-acre residential golf community that features an acclaimed Nicklaus Design golf course and a full array of community amenities. It has emerged as one of the Triangle’s top-selling communities, attracting nearly 1,000 new families in the last three years.

It’s developed by Tampa-based Landeavor LLC, a full-service real estate development and investment company that is currently developing nine communities in five states, including three in North Carolina. The company combines extensive real estate development, investment and management experience with strong capital backing and commitment to environmental stewardship.

The Best of the Best designations were selected from several hundred nominations by a special editorial committee and announced in Ideal-Living Magazine's July 2016 issue. Ideal-Living is considered a premier lifestyle and destination publication for families in the market for primary residence, second home or vacation getaway.

In recent years, it’s been at the top of a number of prestigious rankings, including #1 Best Place for Young Families, #1 Best Place to Raise Kids, #1 Best Place for Home Ownership, #2 Safest City and #2 for Job Seekers.
