Wexford Apartments for Rent
Wexford is an upscale, single-family home development that is surrounded by gently rolling woodlands. Its closest neighbors are the privately owned Dead Broke Farm and the Wake County Wildlife Club, an association for hunters that hosts the annual Dixie Deer Classic. Sitting west of Carpenter Pond Road, the main road into the neighborhood is the Wexford Woods Trail. This street ends in a cul-de-sac framed by large homes on heavily wooded lots. Kintail Drive is the popular through street.
Development in the Wexford area began in the mid-1960s, with most of the homes built between 1970 and 1994. Prior to that, the area was primarily forest and farmland. Houses sit in-between groves of trees and are situated fairly far back from the street. In some cases, a mailbox and a long driveway half-hidden among the trees may be sole indicators of a residence amid such a beautiful, natural setting. The area is a pedestrian-friendly one, especially for those who don’t mind an occasional slight change in elevation.
Schools and services are available outside of Wexford via Carpenter Pond Road, heading either north or south. The closest churches are New Bethel and Chestnut Grove Baptist to the north, and Saint Francis of Assisi, to the south. Schools are located to the south, including Sycamore Creek Elementary School and the private Montessori of Raleigh Middle School.
Following Carpenter Pond Road north to Wake Forest Highway leads to the Falls Village Golf Course. Restaurants are located along Interstate 540 and Route 70, both south of Wexford. Six Forks Station is mall to head for and is located off of Interstate 540 at Six Forks Road. Larger stores here include Home Depot and K-Mart, and the Six Forks Cinema is also on-site.
