Carbon Hills Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
With stately homes set back from the street and fronted by beautifully manicured lawns, the Carbon Hills neighborhood of Raleigh is a very desirable one for couples without children and for those with families. Each land lot is about a quarter of an acre in size, which means you have plenty of room for a backyard playground and space to plant vegetables and flowers. In addition, you’ll have mature trees on your property so that you won’t have to wait years to enjoy their beauty and shade.
The close proximity of Carbon Hills to shopping centers is only one of the conveniences that residents enjoy. You can take a leisurely walk to the High House Crossing Center if you wish, and the Beaver Creek Commons shopping mall is only about three miles away. Those living in this neighborhood are also within a short driving distance of the airport. Research Triangle Park is also very close by, which is great news if this is the area of the city where you work. French Drive runs through the neighborhood and all the side streets connect to other main thoroughfares.
The Carbon Hills neighborhood offers the opportunity to get out and enjoy the great outdoors with the spur trail that connects to the neighboring town of Cary. This trail is perfect for walking, hiking or biking.
Although there are no schools in the neighborhood itself, they aren’t too far away in the surrounding areas. In this way, the children living in Carbon Hills will attend school with the friends on their street and meet new friends that live in other parts of the city.
William B. Umstead State Park is only a short drive away. The North Carolina Museum of Art holds a series of concerts in the summer months that the whole family can enjoy. If you want to take in the latest movie release on the big screen, The Rialto, located in Five Points, has specialty cinemas where you can have a night out. Plus, there are loads of restaurants and coffee shops surrounding the neighborhood for those times when you just don’t feel like cooking a meal.
