Breckenridge Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Breckenridge’s neighborhoods are bounded by Hilburn Drive on both the east and south, and Plumleaf Road on the west. A small section of Mayapple Place forms the northern border. The average home in the community costs around $270 thousand, although prices can range from $60 thousand to more than $700 thousand. A number of apartment complexes also dot the area, where rents can range from the upper $600s to more than $1,000. Most residents own at least one vehicle, but the Raleigh area also offers access to public transit services.
Members of the community will enjoy walking, hiking, or visiting the playgrounds at the many parks scattered throughout the area. Local parks offer a range of activities, including an environmental education program offered by Blue Jay Point Country Park. This 230-acre park borders the nearby Falls Lake. At Pullen Park residents can enjoy a day on the large man-made lake in a rented pedal boat, or enjoy a number of rides with their children, including a train and kiddies’ pedal boats. The park also offers a concession area, as well as picnic areas and more than 70 acres of open green spaces and walking trails.
Several historic landmarks can easily be reached from the Breckenridge neighborhoods. One such landmark is the Joel Lane Museum House, which is thought to be the “Birthplace of North Carolina’s Capital.” The home, formerly the property of Colonel Joel Lane, has been preserved as a heritage site of statewide significance. In 1792, the Colonel sold 1,000 acres of his land to the state, land which later became the capitol of North Carolina. The North Carolina Executive Mansion plays home to the state governor and family. The Mordecai Plantation, a registered historical landmark that was built in 1785, has the distinction of being the oldest residence in Raleigh. The plantation sits in the nearby Mordecai Square Historic Park.
