Gardens On Glenwood
February 16, 2024
Nestled in the heart of Raleigh just off Glenwood Avenue, Gardens on Glenwood is an upscale condominium community situated on seven acres of beautifully landscaped grounds.
Construction first began in 2001, led by developer Grubb Ventures, who recognized the area's walkability and proximity to dining and entertainment along Glenwood Avenue.
The initial homes built were spacious two and three bedroom condominium residences with high-end interior finishes and amenities.
Over 20 years later, Gardens on Glenwood contains around 100 luxury condo units across multiple mid-rise buildings but retains its peaceful, private environment.
Though the community is fully built out, units do become available for resale from time to time.
An active homeowner's association maintains the common areas and ensures architectural standards are upheld.
The grounds offer walking paths, streams, and gardens available to all residents.
