More about Glenwood:

Post-WWII Raleigh experienced a surge in suburban development to the North of downtown and around the Carolina Country Club. Designed to follow the contours of the topography of the area, the neighborhoods beg to be explored. There are several pocket parks that follow the creeks and they all connect to the Raleigh Greenway System.

This area is generally bounded by Crabtree Creek to the north, Anderson Dr  and Lake Boone Trail to the south, and the Inner Beltline (I440) to the west.

Glenwood’s Neighborhoods

This area is made up of dozens of old subdivisions. Notable neighborhoods include Country Club Hills, Woodrow Park, Anderson Heights, Coley Forest & Coley Lakes, Budleigh, and Glen Eden. The homes in the area are a wide mix of styles, but they all can be considered urban estates. The landscaping is picture perfect and the curb appeal is demure.
