Eastwood Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Located just north of Interstate 40 and west of Interstate 540 on Raleigh’s eastern side, the Eastwood neighborhood is comprised of Glenbrook Drive and two smaller roads, Fernbrook Road and Elmhurst Circle. With a population of fewer than 70 people, Eastwood is a small subdivision of older homes, the majority of which were constructed between 1950 and 1979.
Situated on medium-sized wooded lots, the homes in this neighborhood are predominantly single-family, one-story homes, although two-story residences are sprinkled throughout the community. The main access to the subdivision is the intersection of Glenbrook Drive, which is Eastbrook’s main road, and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to the north.
Although the neighborhood consists of secluded, low-traffic roads, the streets are not ideal for walkers, bikers, or those with children or pets because of the absence of sidewalks. Despite the fact that many of the homes back to small patches of nearby woods, the area also lacks a neighborhood park. However, what the Eastwood neighborhood lacks in terms of being pet-friendly and family-focused due to its absence of sidewalks and parks, it makes up for in its proximity to downtown Raleigh, which is less than three miles to the west.
The Raleigh City Museum, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and displaying the city’s rich history, is a 10-minute drive from Eastwood and offers an assortment of exhibits and activities, including specially-designed classes for children of all ages. Also nearby are the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, North Carolina State University, and the Raleigh Country Club. Raleigh-Durham International Airport is approximately 20 miles to the northwest. Crabtree Valley Mall, which features more than 200 stores and is one of the largest malls in the southeastern U.S, is a 15-minute drive to the north of the Eastwood neighborhood.
