Foxcroft Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Situated between Interstate 540 and Interstate 440 on Raleigh’s northeast side, the Fox Croft neighborhood is close to a variety of entertainment and recreational opportunities in downtown Raleigh but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city to provide residents with a safe and secluded suburban feel.
With a population of more than 400, the .935-square-mile area that comprises Fox Croft includes Castlebrook Drive, Edington Lane, Allenby Drive, Westminster Drive, Long Branch Trail, Canter Lane, Abington Lane, Buffaloe Road, Windemere Place, Devon Circle, Barnsley Trail, and Adrian Court.
Although some construction in the Fox Croft subdivision dates back to the 1940s, a majority of homes were built after 1990. Situated on spacious properties, the single-family residences in this neighborhood are nestled into the edges of the woods and range from sprawling ranch-style dwellings to large two-story houses. The homes sit relatively far apart from one another, offering both space and privacy while still maintaining a close community feel.
The subdivision is made up of winding, wooded roads, the majority of which do not have sidewalks, although most homes are located several hundred feet from the street. Two access points along Buffaloe Road at its intersections with Castlebrook Drive and Westminster Drive on the neighborhood’s north end afford residents a quick and convenient route to nearby highways and interstates.
Buffaloe Road Athletic Park, which is home to five lighted baseball diamonds, a football field, an eight-lane track, and a nature trail, is less than one mile up the road. Crabtree Valley Mall is a 15-minute drive to the west.
The Fox Croft neighborhood prides itself on providing country living in the city. Its proximity to Raleigh and neighboring communities such as Cary, Durham, and Chapel Hill only increases its appeal to both current and prospective residents.
