I searched for opinions on this subdivision, but didn't come up with anything.

I'm a Raleigh native and know the area very well, but my husband and I are having trouble finding the "right" house right now. We particularly love the Leesville/540 area (especially Harrington Grove), which is convenient for both of our commutes.

Does anyone know anything about the Harrington Pines subdivision in Durham?

Thanks!

I've always thought the homes in Harrington Pines were quite inexpensive and it is actually a cute neighborhood. There are some homes that are rentals and sometimes there are a few yards that need some TLC. However, the biggest negative that my clients seem to have is that it is considered Durham and the schools that Harrington Pines are assigned to have not impressed my clients. Unfortunately, that means that re sale is a bit difficult and seems to take quite a bit longer to re sell.

I know someone who lives there. Its a mix of families and some retired folks. Houses were built by Colony. It's in Durham County, but has some weird annexation arrangement with Raleigh. Have not heard any complaints on the quality.

Was originally planned to be connected to Harrington Grove, but the Harrington Grove people protested, so the roads have not been connected.

Don't know how they have appreciated, but when the neighborhood was going up, they were really affordable.

Very convenient location to RTP and Brier Creek. You do get some aircraft noise there, but its not unreasonable.

Hope that helps.

Thank you for the input, everyone!

Very interesting about the roads not connecting. I was wondering about that.

I was also informed today, like Vicki said, the neighborhood is unfortunately assigned to some of the least desirable schools in Durham County.

Default Update on schools

The elementary school quality has increased recently since Spring Valley Elementary was built and Harrington Pines is assigned in that district.
