Located south of Raleigh’s city center and east of Apex, the Greythorne neighborhood is situated south of Penny Road and consists primarily of homes on Sparrow Pond Lane, Spartina Court, and Clay Hall Court. The neighborhood is bordered to the north by Jones Cemetery and Orchard Meadows, and is a short drive down Penny Road from Lake Wheeler Park to the east.
In a city with a population of 426,708, the Greythorne neighborhood is home to approximately 60 individuals in homes constructed between 1980 and 2000. Considered to be an upscale subdivision in Wake County’s Swift Creek area, the neighborhood features a pond and fountain at the entrance, giving Greythorne a welcoming park-like setting perfect for pedestrians, children, and pets. The area’s only entrance is at the intersection of Sparrow Pond Lane and Penny Road
Although there are no sidewalks or streetlights in the Greythorne neighborhood, the subdivision consists of single-family homes with wide lawns and wooded lots, and the lush, greenspace near the entryway is perfect for walking dogs or playing with children. Lake Wheeler Park, which features over 150 acres of park land and a 650-acre lake, is a 10-minute drive to the northeast and offers opportunities for fishing, canoeing, rowing, kayaking, and sailing.
Although Greythorne’s spacious, luxury homes are nestled in a safe, secluded subdivision away from busy roads and bustling traffic, the neighborhood is only minutes away from Crossroads Plaza – a shopping center featuring over 60 stores selling apparel, sporting goods, home furnishing, health and beauty supplies, shoes, music, and electronics – as well as Interstate 40, Interstate 440 and Highway 64, providing access to downtown Raleigh and neighboring cities such as Cary and Apex.
