Carolina Pines Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Just off scenic Lake Wheeler Road, near the intersection of Tryon Road, is the beautiful community of Carolina Pines. Residents here enjoy country life with all the conveniences of the city. The brick and wood ranch-style family homes, duplexes, and town home rental units are nestled among tall pines and sturdy oaks. Some of the small houses in the Carolina Pines were built in the 1940s and are still in excellent repair.
Due to Raleigh’s rising popularity, there are many new rental units in this community. It is a great neighborhood for small to mid-sized families, working professionals, and college students, who find the community very convenient to North Carolina State University. Athens Drive High School is also nearby.
Carolina Pines residents are surrounded by some of Raleigh’s best features. Along Lake Wheeler Road are privately owned farms and ranches, with a delightful sprinkling of horses and cows. Despite this rural atmosphere, major intersections connecting the community to Interstate 40, the Raleigh Beltline, Highway 401, Highway 64, and Highway 70 are quite close. Downtown Raleigh, loaded with plenty of historic landmarks, is only a short drive from the community.
Carolina Pines Park and Community Center are within walking distance for many residents. The beautiful, naturally wooded park has lighted baseball fields, tennis courts, and a very popular off-leash dog park. Not far away, Lake Wheeler offers fishing, boating, and other water sports. Historic Yates Mill Park at the intersection of Lake Wheeler Road and Yates Mill Pond Road has hiking trails and is the site of an old grist mill. The State Farmers Market, also on Lake Wheeler Road, provides the best in fresh, locally grown produce. Golfers will love the Raleigh Golf Association course, located on Tryon Road.
