Barrington Village Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The development of Barrington Village was so unique that the neighborhood was featured in the Wall Street Journal. The newspaper described the interesting origin of the North Carolina neighborhood. Instead of building new homes, developers uprooted 24 houses slated for demolition and moved them to six acres in southeastern Raleigh. Developers renovated the houses, which were built in the 1940s through the 1960s, before selling them. The Barrington Village is in the 27610 zip code.
The entrance to the community is off Barrington Drive. Barwell Road runs to the northeast of the neighborhood.
Barrington Village is overseen by Builders of Hope, a nationally recognized non-profit organization. The neighborhood has a playground that was donated by a developer, as well as a picnic area, apple trees, and an herb garden. A community center is under construction.
Nearby are Highway 64 and Interstate 440, major arteries that provide access to downtown Raleigh, where many businesses, shopping areas, and restaurants are located. North Carolina State University, St. Augustine’s College, Peace College, and Meredith College are all in downtown Raleigh and within an easy drive from the neighborhood. The commute to downtown is about 20 minutes, but conveniences such as a grocery and restaurants are less than 1.5 miles away from Barrington Village. WakeMed Hospital is four miles to the northwest.
Anderson Point Park, just north of Barrington Village, is a great place for residents to relax and enjoy the area’s natural beauty. The park has four miles of walking trails, as well as a playground and areas for viewing wildlife. Nearby Worth Park is the trailhead for Lower Walnut Creek Trail, which is 4.2 miles long and popular with cyclists, walkers, and runners.
