Sandy Chase Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Sandy Chase neighborhood is still out in the country. Even in a growing area like the Piedmont Triad, it’s still possible to find a place to live that has all the charm of country living but is just a few minutes from all a nearby city has to offer.
North of Raleigh but inside Interstate 540, Sandy Chase is made up of a group of streets that can only be accessed from Hidden Branches Drive off Ray Road. The neighborhood has no through streets, so there is little traffic. When the subdivision was constructed, the builders kept the mature trees in place. Residents find that walking, bike riding, or jogging along the quiet, shady streets is a great way to spend an afternoon.
Sandy Chase is made up of mostly single-family homes, though the neighborhood has some rentals. Rents are higher than the median for Raleigh, but residents think they are a good deal when factoring in what the neighborhood has to offer plus the convenient, short commutes to downtown and nearby business hubs.
The Raleigh area has some great parks just minutes from Sandy Chase. Lake Lynn Park has lighted tennis courts, baseball diamonds, a batting cage, a full-service recreation center, and a walking path that follows the shoreline of 55-acre Lake Lynn. Baileywick Road Park has beautifully groomed baseball diamonds, several turf fields, and a large playground. The William B. Umstead State Park is a 6,000-acre outdoor oasis in the city and offers boating, hiking camping, bridle trails, fly fishing, and a lot more just 10 minutes from the Sandy Chase area.
