Dunleith Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Residents of the Dunleith neighborhood don’t have to go far to play a round of golf. This upscale development looks out at the fourth, fifth, and sixth holes of the Wakefield Plantation Golf Course in Raleigh.
Part of the Wakefield Plantation Development plan, Dunleith offers single-family homes ranging from 3,500 to 6,000 square feet in size on large lots. Most have two stories and long, curving driveways. Many residences have swimming pools. Rows of mature trees between the homes provide color and privacy. Access is via Towngate Drive off of Wakefield Plantation Drive. One way in and out assures little traffic and pedestrian safety.
Residents enjoy membership in the Wakefield Plantation Golf and Country Club. The course itself hosts the annual SAS Carolina Classic, a PGA event. The Wakefield Plantation Sports Club offers an eight-lane lap pool, lighted tennis courts, a fitness center, and hiking trails. A children’s pool and a playground are also available. Tennis and golf lessons are offered. More hiking trails, fishing, and boating are available at Falls Lake, only a mile from Dunleith.
Wakefield Plantation also has its own schools. Dunleith students can walk to Wild Forest and Wakefield Elementary, Wakefield Middle School, and Wakefield High School. All are part of the Wake County Public School System.
Wakefield Baptist Church is just outside the neighborhood boundaries, on the north end. Calvary Chapel and St. John Episcopal Church, both on Durham Road, are also nearby. Three shopping malls, Wakefield Crossing, Wakefield Commons, and the Shoppes at Caveness Farms, are all within a one-mile radius. A golf shop and the City Market Barber & Style Shop are inside the Wakefield Plantation borders.
