Echo Heights Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Less than six miles from downtown Raleigh, the Echo Heights neighborhood on the city’s south side offers residents the comforts of a country feel coupled with the conveniences of city living. With a population of more than 350 residents spread over .279 square mile, the subdivision consists of single-family homes built primarily between 1950 and 1994.
The houses throughout Echo Heights are spread along Woodland Road, Lakeview Drive, Spring Road, Hilltop Road, Hickory Lane, and Colonial Drive. A majority of homes in this neighborhood are ranch-style residences on densely wooded lots, although a handful of two-story dwellings are present throughout the community.
The subdivision’s long, winding roads lack both streetlights and sidewalks, forcing pedestrians to utilize the street for outdoor activities such as walking, biking, and jogging. Tall trees and spacious lot lines are characteristic of the neighborhood, and residents have plenty of privacy from both neighbors and passersby.
Although tucked into the trees in a secluded area, Echo Heights is within five miles of cultural and historic attractions such as the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and the North Carolina Museum of History. It is located approximately 20 miles from the Raleigh-Durham International Airport.
For residents interested in enjoying the great outdoors, Lake Wheeler Park is three miles to the west and features 150 acres of parkland and a 650-acre lake for boating, rowing, kayaking, sailing, canoeing, and fishing.
Echo Heights is also a 10-minute drive to major thoroughfares such as Interstate 440 and Interstate 40, providing residents with a quick and convenient commute to Research Triangle Park and nearby cities like Cary, Durham, and Chapel Hill.
