How The Highview is Taking Senior Living to New Heights

Searstone opened in 2013 and brought its residents a more dynamic, engaging senior living experience. Set in Cary, North Carolina, Searstone offers its own village center, with shared spaces and recreation that bring together residents, their families and people from neighboring communities. And because it’s not-for-profit, Searstone reinvests all earnings into onsite services and amenities.

Seniors quickly filled up the space, creating a supportive and engaging community, and putting the independent living apartments at capacity. Though a waitlist is in effect, more seniors are still looking to enjoy the experience that others have while at Searstone. So, coming late 2024, The Highview will open to provide the same warm, welcoming community and continue to uphold the higher standard for continuing care.

Now’s your chance to join this neighborhood of those who see a senior lifestyle as a time of personal growth and opportunity.

Floor plans

At The Highview, there will be several different floor plans so you can choose the right one for your needs. There will be 152 Independent Living apartments, varying between one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and two-bedroom with den floor plan options that average 1,425 square feet.

Each will be equipped with a new kitchen area as well as dining and bistro space and ample storage throughout. You’ll also have a washer and dryer within your apartment, ceramic tile flooring, and regular housekeeping and flat linen service.


Within the spacious floor plans come lavish amenities to make your days more carefree and enjoyable. Searstone residents spend their days with lively enthusiasm and bright spirits — so it’s important that we provide residents of The Highview with an environment that allows for those same opportunities.


Residents will enjoy a blend of residential living and neighborhood convenience with walkable spaces, 24/7 concierge services, transportation services, reserved underground parking, and easy access to retail, restaurants, and medical offices.

The full-time Director of Resident Life and Wellness will help you determine your path to help you feel like your best self.


The Highview will also offer a village center with shared spaces and recreation to allow residents to spend time with one another, as well as their families and people from neighboring communities.
