Oakmont Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Oakmont is a small neighborhood in east Raleigh, located off New Hope Road. The lush, beautiful community has a few mid-sized, brick, ranch-style single-family homes. Many of the homes are practically hidden in a natural wooded setting. Due to the Raleigh area’s rising popularity, some of the single-family homes have been converted into apartments.
In spite of its small size, the Oakmont neighborhood has a very spacious appearance. Most of the properties have very large yards. There are large patches of tall pines and many lush green spots great for walking the dog. All the trees and foliage help to partition Oakmont from the other neighborhoods and major thoroughfares that surround it.
Oakmont is also bordered by Skycrest Drive, Marsh Creek Road and Trawick Road. These major thoroughfares offer quick and easy access to major intersections connecting this quiet community to Capital Boulevard, the Raleigh Beltline, Interstate 40, and Highway 401. Working professionals enjoy easy and quick access to all parts of the Triangle. Popular areas of north Raleigh and downtown Raleigh are very close. Knightdale, Durham, Chapel Hill and the Raleigh Durham International Airport are all just a short commute from Oakmont.
Only a quick drive to the north is Marsh Creek Park. The beautiful, natural wooded park is also home to a very popular skate park, which attracts skate boarders from near and far. The Marsh Creek Community Center and playground are the most recent additions to the park grounds. The 24,000 square feet environmentally friendly community center houses an art room, a fitness room, computer lab, and an air-conditioned gymnasium.
