Beachwood Apartments for Rent
Tucked along the eastern edge of the Neuse River on Raleigh’s northeast side, the Beachwood neighborhood is a small subdivision that juts off Old Milburnie Road and has a population of approximately 130 people. Comprised of Penselwood Drive, Lighthall Lane, Panhill Way, Pilton Place, Torness Court, Preston Place, Blacket Court, Cranmoore Court, and Cholderton Court, Beachwood takes up .168 square mile. It consists primarily of single-family homes built between 1980 and 2000, although some construction dates to the 1930s.
A majority of homes in the Beachwood neighborhood are two-story dwellings situated on wooded lots a short distance from Milburnie Lake to the east. Beachwood is a quiet and secluded community with only one entry point at the intersection of Penselwood Drive and Milburnie Road at the south end of the subdivision. It is relatively family-friendly despite its lack of sidewalks, which forces walkers and bikers onto the roads to enjoy recreational activities.
Residents of the Beachwood neighborhood benefit from easy access to nearby Interstate 540, which is less than two miles to the east, and Interstate 440, approximately four miles to the west. Both of these major thoroughfares provide residents with only a 20-minute drive to Raleigh, to the southwest.
Although the community doesn’t offer a wide variety of recreational activities within its borders, Marsh Creek Park is a five-mile drive from Beachwood and provides many opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts. These include a lighted baseball diamond, inline hockey rink, and skateboard park. Falls Lake State Recreation Area, which contains 26,000 acres of woodlands and a 12,000-acre lake, is within 25 miles. It offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life with activities ranging from walking, mountain biking, and boating to camping, fishing, and swimming.
