Tamarack Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Tamarack community is largely made up of single family homes. Prices range from the mid-to-upper $100 thousands to more than $400 thousand. Condominiums range in price from the upper $90 thousands to just over $200 thousand. Much of the immediate area, particularly along the borders from Credmore Road to West Millbrook Rd, are well served by mass transit. However, a relatively high number of residents also own their own cars.
Families, particularly those with young children, might enjoy a day trip to the Hemlock Bluffs Nature Preserve, located 12 miles south of the Tamarack neighborhood. The preserve offers tours along well-maintained walking trails, where residents can view plants and wildlife native to the Carolina region. In addition, a number of interactive exhibits teach children about weather, geology, the workings of the human body, and the region’s flora and fauna.
Closer to home, but equally educational, is the Mordecai Historical Park. The park was named for local lawyer and judge Moses Mordecai, but was also the birthplace of Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Abraham Lincoln as President of the United States following the Civil War. Residents can tour the home for a taste of late 19th century life, and learn how the home grew from a modest four room residence into a full mansion, complete with grounds and gardens.
The Raleigh Sports and Entertainment Arena sits just a bit over five miles away from home. Events range from hockey games, to concerts, to children’s performances. Also in the area is the J.S. Dorton Arena, home to one of the largest and most challenging robotics competitions in the state. The site also hosts concerts and other entertainment events.
