Raleigh has arrived. As the No. 3 best place to live in the country, our fine City of Oaks has certainly had a growth spurt in the last few years. People from all over come to visit—and live here—for our incredible food and beverage selects, vibrant arts and culture scene, fantastic parks, and more. And you know you’ve really made it when you’re surrounded by luxe offerings at a relatively high price point—and we’re not just talking real estate. Here, we round up some of the most expensive retail, F&B, and splurgeworthy ops in the city. While some might not choose to spend their money on these arguable luxuries, these top-dollar items are here if you want them. Or chalk one or two up in your “what I’d buy if I won the lottery” wish list. A girl/guy can dream, right?!
Aspire to live large a la the Rose family in Schitt’s Creek—before they lost everything, of course—via a $7 million home in Raleigh’s North Ridge neighborhood.
Shine bright like a diamond—110 diamonds totaling 20 carats to be exact—via a 14K white gold $23K diamond necklace from Reliable Jewelry & Loan. Bring on the bling!
Time is precious. As is a ~$18K Rolex GMT-Master II from Bailey’s. Perfect timing for the holidays!
