Date Night in The Triangle

Date Night in The Triangle

Trendy, intimate restaurants and cocktail bars. Vibrants arts and culture. Hidden gems around every corner. No part of North Carolina says romance quite like the Triangle area around Raleigh! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, there are so many downtown hotspots close to your new home to celebrate with your sweetheart.


Whether you love to enjoy a gourmet meal or indulge in a new experience, you’re bound to find something special just minutes from your custom new home in the Triangle. Take a look at our winter 2020 recommendations for romantic fun around the beautiful Triangle area in North Carolina:


Couple at bar.

Eat & Imbibe


Garland: Get your taste buds ready — this Triangle treasure serves authentically delicious Indian and Asian cuisine in a fun and funky atmosphere. After dinner, head downstairs for a cocktail in the subterranean bar.


Crawford and Son: You can expect a top-notch meal at this sleek yet cozy eatery, with dishes like crispy catfish, hamachi crudo, chicken confit, and more. Just make sure to save room for desserts like the orange creamsicle.


Brewery Bhavana: Tucked into the historic Moore Square Park, this high-end dim sum restaurant (plus flower shop, bookstore, and brewery) has been named the #10 best new restaurant in the country… come see why!


Watts & Ward: Slink into this vintage-inspired basement cocktail bar and taste-test the city’s most delectable cocktails. You’ll come for the cool ambiance and vibe and stay for the happy moments with the one you love.


Couple in the city.

Enjoy the Experience


Videri Chocolate Factory: Satisfy your sweet tooth with your sweetheart at this candy lover’s oasis. Take a tour and shop your favorite chocolates to bring back for a “night cap” in your Homes By Dickerson home. 


The Cary Theater: Quaint, charming, and as cool as can be, this old-fashioned theater offers indie films, music, and live performances including comedy and improv. Revel in the romance of your favorite entertainment.


Triangle Rock Club: Who knew breaking a sweat could melt your heart? If you both love a little adventure, this vibrant gym is the spot for you. From rock climbing to yoga, you’ll get your hearts pumping in no time.


Irregardless Cafe: There’s something undeniably romantic about live music — especially at a venue as sweet as this. Enjoy a band you’ve never seen before in a small, intimate setting with food, cocktails, and more.

From all of us at Homes By Dickerson, we hope you enjoy a lovely Valentine’s Day!

Winter Wonderland Home of the Week-The Riverwalk in Traditions at Wake Forest

Winter Wonderland Home of the Week-The Riverwalk in Traditions at Wake Forest

Welcome to the epitome of style, elegance and luxury at Homes by Dickerson!  Our Winter Wonderland Home of the Week, The Riverwalk in Traditions at Wake Forest, exudes all of these components and more in its unique exterior and quality interior details.   We have successfully blended a mixture of brick, board and batten, peaks, columns and decorative windows to create an incredibly stately façade, hinting at what lies behind the massive wooden front doors.  Walking inside, you are greeted by a generous foyer, expansive hardwood floors, arched entry ways and streaming natural light.  The interior design is a brilliant combination of old world charm and modern elegance.  While you can imagine family gatherings in the ballroom-like dining room and awe over the corniced-framed stovetop, the cool gray subway tiles and sleek cabinetry of the butler’s pantry and kitchen island evoke a refreshingly clean and crisp style.  The oversized kitchen island is truly a focal point with its solid black aesthetics contrasting against the lighter surrounding cabinets,  wood flooring, and beautiful brushed nickel fixtures.  Your view from the kitchen will result in either the wall of windows looking out into the backyard, the immense family room with its custom-built shelving and fireplace, or the wrought-iron staircase leading to the second floor.  Before heading upstairs, you will want to notice the first-floor guest suite boasting complimentary granite countertops and coordinating details.

Once you leave the main floor, you will encounter a wonderful master suite with a spa-like bath retreat, complete with a huge walk-in shower and claw-foot tub.  The adjoining closet also does not disappoint with its built-in armoire and open-face shelving and window seats.  Three secondary bedrooms and two bathrooms can be found on the second floor in addition to a great bonus room that is spacious enough to accommodate your hobbies and interests.  One of the most signature features of this home however, is actually on the outside.  The brick fireplace enhances the intimate screen porch and views of the home’s backyard.
