Lakemont: The Quintessential Midtown Raleigh Neighborhood

Lakemont is an ideal Midtown Raleigh neighborhood, as it is walkable, friendly, and close to a variety of shops and eateries. Homes in the area are typically single family and are centered around the Lakemont Swim and Tennis club. Most of the homes were built in the 1960's, giving the community a lot of charm and character.

The neighborhood included a man-made lake when it was first established, giving the development its name. The lake was later drained in the 1980's, making room for a new development of homes on Little Falls Drive.


Lakemont is located Northern Raleigh, conveniently close to the popular North Hills Shopping district, the I-440 Beltline, and offers easy access to the I-540 outer loop.

It is also 4 miles from North Carolina State University, 13 miles from Raleigh Durham International Airport, 20 miles from Duke University and 24 miles from the main campus of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

There is also convenient access to other North Raleigh shopping areas, Triangle Town Center and Crabtree Valley Mall, in addition to shopping and nightlife in downtown Raleigh.


Homes range in size from 1,000 SF to 3,000+ SF with 0-2 car garages and 1-4 bathrooms. Most of the homes were built from 1962-1967, but many have been updated or renovated and you can also find a few newly built homes scattered throughout the community.
