The “Old Raleigh” neighborhood of Country Club Hills is planted inside the beltline just north of the Carolina Country Club, to the west of Glenwood Avenue, and to the east of Crabtree Creek. Characterized by its lush, mature trees which frame the gentle slopes of the oversized lots and variety of beautiful, southern, custom homes, Country Club Hills is one of Raleigh’s most sought-after neighborhoods. Why should you relocate to this neighborhood?
1. Country Club Hills has an assortment of stunning Homes
Although the neighborhood was established in the late 1950s, the median age of homes is 20 years old. This neighborhood evolution has produced a beautiful inside-the-beltline community made up homes ranging from gated mansions and stately new construction houses to bungalow homes and charming ranches. Traditional, Georgian, Colonial, Ranch, Williamsburg, and Craftsman homes are available from approximately $300,000 up to $3,000,000. This mix of established homes provides broad options for buyers to choose from. On average these 3,000-5,000+ square feet houses include formal living and dining rooms, hardwood floors, cathedral ceilings, large patios/back decks, and renovated interiors. Intricate upscale details are also prevalent such as extensive crown moldings, custom gourmet kitchens, marble counter tops, and grand entrances.
2. Country Club Hills has deep lots that give a sense of privacy
The spacious lots create a secluded atmosphere with just the right amount of privacy without feeling isolated. Large well-manicured gardens and expansive yards are common in this community. There are even some cul-de-sacs, which aren’t common in most “inside the beltline” (ITB) neighborhoods.
3. Country Club Hills abuts Glenwood Village Shopping Center
Across Glenwood Avenue from Country Club Hills is the unassuming yet upscale Glenwood Village Shopping Center. This small neighborhood center includes a Harris Teeter, daily conveniences, a few specialty shops, and local restaurants. Residents can pop over in less than five minutes to take advantage of this great tucked away bundle of retail options. Glenwood Grill is a cozy yet chic Raleigh restaurant serving gourmet southern coastal cuisine for dinner and lunch. If you are able to get a table for lunch you are likely to bump into some of Raleigh’s “big-wigs” as it is a popular spot for not only neighborhood residents, but also many prominent Downtown Raleigh professionals. The Japanese restaurant next door, Haru Sushi, is another favorite! Find fresh and unique sushi rolls, take advantage of reward cards, and delight in the hot steamed towels provided at the beginning of dinner service.
4. Country Club Hills is close to Raleigh’s top shopping destinations
From Country Club Hills, Crabtree Valley Mall is a quick and easy straight shot up Glenwood Avenue.

Chang’s China Bistro, Kanki, Brio, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, and McCormick & Schmick’s.

Cameron Village, an open-air shopping mall with 100 distinct stores and national retailers is also just down Oberlin Road.
5. Country Club Hills provides the best Inside the Beltline (ITB) connectivity
