Devon Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Comprised of some of the city’s most beautiful estate homes, Devon is a place to call home for many North Raleigh elite. Homes start in the $1 million price range. The neighborhood, consisting of less than 100 homes, is located off Durant Road, less than a mile from its busy intersection with Falls of Neuse Road.
Convenience abounds at the intersection with an upscale grocery store, a large department store, several restaurants and smaller stores, along with a small regional hospital across the street. Driving about a quarter of a mile south on Falls of Neuse provides another shopping opportunity at the brand-new retail center known as Lafayette Square. Built in the style of European architecture, the area is filled with quaint shops, pubs, and posh boutiques.
This elegant neighborhood allows residents a glimpse of many different types of architecture, with most homes reflecting various neo-eclectic styles. Designs range from homes with Tudor-influenced pitched roofs to homes with a Spanish revival villa inspiration.
Residents find many leisure opportunities within close proximity of Devon, with the award-winning Wakefield Plantation golf course and private country club only a few miles north on Falls of Neuse Road. For lovers of the outdoors, Falls River is also close by, providing canoeing, kayaking, and picturesque views.
The rest of the city of Raleigh is within easy access to the neighborhood. Interstate 540 is merely a few intersections south from Durant Road. Triangle Town Center Mall is two exits away, where residents find even more retail and restaurant prospects. Parents might enjoy a quick trip to the recreational area known as Honeycutt Park, located on Honeycutt Road just south of the intersection of Interstate 540 and Falls of Neuse Road. The park consists of a picnic area, playground, and a baseball field.
Lush, mature landscaping and above-average sized lots contribute to the beauty of the neighborhood. Even though sidewalks are not provided, the exclusivity of the area affords residents the chance to enjoy a short, safe walk through the neighborhood without worrying about a great deal of traffic to avoid.
