we are a young couple moving to the area.
we are looking for a house we can afford in the triangle area and came a across Glenwood Crossing community - some townhomes right off of Glenwood Avenue/Hwy 70.
can anyone tells us about the area? - how is the neighborhood and what about the commute to RTP?
we currently have no children so local schools too far is not an issue.

thanks

Easy commute to the Park.
Up 70 and in on T W Alexander, or to 540 and exit at Davis Drive. I-40 Exit off 540 is a little messy, as I hear it.

It is a spanking new neighborhood. Should be just fine.
Shopping is readily available back down 70/Glenwood, out Ebenezer Church to Leesville, or great in Brier Creek area.

Definitely a good area, close to 540 and still considered North Raleigh.

Check out Glenwood North, as well.

Default Glenwood Crossing Area

I currently live in the Long Lake version of the townhomes being built at Glenwood Crossing. We were going to originally buy at Glenwood Crossing but the homes were not ready in time for our move. We were able to find a home for sale last November and moved in last December. There is currently one for sale in our neighborhood (up the street from me) for around $208K. I know that for my same floor plan at Glenwood Crossing (1850 SF), the starting price was $212K a year ago and is probably closer to $220-$225K today. My home was built late 2005, so the price was right for us. We paid less than the price of a new home that was only 1 year old. Might be worth a look.

One thing to keep in mind. My townhome is 2-story, 1850 sf, three bedroom, 2.5 bath and has a 2 car garage. Glenwood North is 3-story and one car garage.

If you move into the area, let me know. We are 25 and 27 and always looking to meet new people. We have been in NC 2 years.

Good luck!

Everything mentioned so far about the area is true. I'll add that you can find resells in Cornerstone Park across the street (cheaper townhomes and more expensive clusterhomes). Another alternative ~ 6 minutes away but closer to RTP is Lennox at Brier Creek built by Westfield/Standard Pacific. These are a little more expensive but I've heard they're offering great deals, it's new construction.
