Carrington at Wakefield Plantation Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Carrington is one of several neighborhoods located within the southeastern section of the pristine Wakefield Plantation in Raleigh. Located in the sought-after area of North Raleigh, Wakefield Plantation is an expansive, planned neighborhood which focuses on providing a village atmosphere where residents can learn, work, and relax within a single community. The Carrington subdivision can be reached off Capital Boulevard. Residents turn onto New Falls of Neuse Road and then left onto Wakefield Crossing Drive.
While Wakefield Plantation offers many types of housing in different price ranges, single-family homes, townhouses, and condos, Carrington consists mostly of single-family homes. Each home within Carrington feels as if it belongs on a southern plantation, boasting colonial architecture and southern style.
Wakefield Plantation has its own schools, and students living in the community attend Wakefield Elementary, Wakefield Middle, and Wakefield High School. While Carrington is not within walking distance of the Wakefield schools, the neighborhood is less than a three-minute drive.
Wakefield Crossing and Wakefield Commons Shopping Center are both located within Wakefield Plantation and offer the conveniences of a grocery store, dry cleaner, coffee shops, post office, and other retail stores. Doctors’ offices are also located on the property.
Residents seeking additional recreation can visit the Wakefield Park or the TPC Sports Club. The sports club offers residents a choice of three pools — an Olympic-size pool, family pool with water slide, and a smaller baby pool. Eight tennis courts and a nine-hole golf course are located on the property. A bar and grill, fitness center, playground, and covered outdoor party area complete the sports club.
Carrington offers the seclusion of a private neighborhood, within the small village feel of Wakefield Plantation.
