Chester Place Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Chester Place is an upscale community with close set houses that almost appear as townhomes or massive condominiums. The lush greenery surrounding these properties, along with huge two or three-car garages, make this section of Raleigh, NC very attractive. Each brick residence has at least three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Short retaining walls separate each well-established residence. Small lawns make yard work low-maintenance. Just off of Oberlin Road, this location is prime.
Central to historic areas, this community is excellent for the history buff. Five Points, a historical landmark, is within one mile. This ancient area is home to Hayes Barton Baptist Church, an old gas station and a major five-point intersection. Mordecai Historical Park, the birthplace of American President Andrew Johnson is in the vicinity, along with the NC Executive Mansion which is residence to the North Carolina Governor. The Joel Lane House is another area tourist attraction. Colonel Lane is the person who sold the property that eventually became the city of Raleigh.
Haywood Hall and Gardens is in the surrounding area. This exceptional place is so stunningly beautiful that many couples choose to get married there.
Recreation and exercise are easy with Pullen Park and the Jaycee Park Volleyball Courts nearby. Pullen Park is one of Raleigh’s major parks which includes a pond with ducks, a train, a carousel and night concerts.
Centrally located to Highways 54 and 401, the Chester Place community is desirable for history, location, and colleges like Meredith and North Carolina State University.
