Own your life

Our unique Equity Ownership model means your investment will pay off now in an elegant and invigorating lifestyle and later when it becomes a valuable asset for you and your heirs. Your home is truly yours.


Because you own your home, the community is debt free and the monthly fees (that cover everything from dining to maintenance to healthcare benefits and much more) are some of the lowest in the Triangle area, life at The Cypress of Raleigh is also a great value!
