Terrington Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Estate-sized houses with stone accents give Terrington the feel of a luxurious, natural enclave, even though bustling urban areas are just miles away. The neighborhood of custom homes was built to be mindful of the environment, and Terrington’s large lots are filled with trees and thick landscaping.
Terrington’s developer has set aside 12 acres as a nature preserve, and the neighborhood also is home to a waterfall, three creeks, and two ponds.
The neighborhood, which encompasses ZIP code 27606, is between Campbell Road on the east and Fordland Drive on the west in southeast Raleigh. Houses are built around two giant cul-de-sacs.
Holly Springs Road connects Terrington to Interstate 40 and Highway 64, two major roads that provide access to the Research Triangle Park and downtown Raleigh. Downtown Cary, which is filled with quaint shops and restaurants, is about 20 minutes away. Cary Towne Center and Crossroads Plaza, two popular shopping destinations, are a quick trip north on Walnut Street.
Some of Wake County’s best parks are a short drive from Terrington. The shaded, challenging trails around Lake Johnson Park are revered for their natural beauty and occasional views of the lake. Many residents enjoy wiling away an afternoon in the rockers at Lake Johnson Park’s shelter, relaxing in the mild North Carolina weather and watching people ride paddle boats on Lake Johnson. Hemlock Bluffs Nature Preserve offers three miles of trails through Eastern Hemlocks, trees usually found only in the mountainous regions of the state.
