The redevelopment of the Country Club Homes on Oberlin Rd. has been a topic of discussion for quite some time. Raleigh City Council approved rezoning plans for the senior-living portion of the development last year — more than a decade after Grubb Ventures, Williams Realty & Building Company, and Clancy & Theys Construction Company bought the ~20-acre property for $24 million in 2006.
On Tues., Apr. 6, the city approved the rezoning of 4 more acres — making way for the development of a 4-story apartment building. While much of the plan is left to be finalized, Budleigh East is slated to feature 23 single-family homes, 73 townhomes and condominiums + 14 cottages.
The original Country Club Homes site at 2600 Oberlin Rd. (near Oberlin Magnet Middle School) was built in the 1940s. The developers believe that Budleigh East will be a large improvement to the property’s current conditions, as the community’s current sewage + water systems are aging. As for the community’s current residents — they are being offered moving grants and refunds on deposits and broken lease fees.
Construction on Budleigh East is slated to begin later this year, with estimated completion date by Summer 2023.
