The community has a $4.5 million-dollar renovation plan in process this year—a complete facelift! It begins with construction of an expansive 4,800 square foot clubhouse to include the leasing office, a new fitness center and yoga room, a centralized mail center, business center, billiards room, and last but not least…..a salt water swimming pool! The new resort-style pool area will feature an expansive sun shelf for sun bathers, a separate pool house, indoor kitchen/bar, a large screen TV, shaded lounge seating, an outdoor grill, a fire pit, and cabana! The clubhouse will also include a lounging area and will be open 24/7.

Our tucked away community has been in this amazing location set on 42 sprawling acres right in the heart of Raleigh, well before midtown was cool. Stop by Shellbrook Apartments today and see all that’s going on!

Pets of Shellbrook Apartments

We welcome and LOVE your fur babies at Shellbrook! Our four legged residents love our community just as much as their owners! Here are a few furry residents we’d like to introduce, in order of appearance:

Lilly Sue the 8 year old Maine Coon. Her favorite activity is sitting on her second floor balcony, watching birds and enjoying the tranquility of her wooded backyard setting.

Doodle Bug, the soon to be 2 year old mixed beagle, enjoys sitting on her patio watching squirrels. She enjoys her favorite treats from Unleashed.

Baby Butter, our 3 year old orange tabby resident, likes to take naps, eat treats, play chase and tackle his fluffy sister, Lilly Sue.

Ellsworth, our 7 year old Shih-poo (Shih Tzu and Toy Poodle mix), enjoys visits to the office for treats, and playing outside with his brother Charlie.

If you’d like to stop by with your fur baby, we’d love to meet him or her! Feel free to send any photos of your pets to and we’ll be happy to share them to our Facebook and Instagram pages. #beforemidtownwascool

Thank you for calling Shellbrook home.

Through the years, Shellbrook Apartments has been the home to many fabulous residents. These people have become like family. We have been honored to be a part of your life, to witness commitments and wedding ceremonies, to be a part of your growing family, to celebrate life events/holidays, and to take care of you through retirement. Thank you for calling Shellbrook home.

We asked one resident who has been a resident here for 10 years what he thought of Shellbrook and he wanted to share this:

My name is Bill Robbins. I have been living at Shellbrook since 2006! I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay, but will be moving only because I am retiring and moving out of the area. I have experienced nothing but the best customer service from the Office and Maintenance staff while living in my apartment over the years. I have had excellent neighbors, and even some of my neighbors have lived at the property for as long as I have. l am going to miss Shellbrook very much, but will continue to follow the property on Facebook and through their website.

We are going to miss you Mr. Robbins and wish you nothing but the best in this exciting chapter of life. Please keep in touch!

– Jodie Bell, CAM, Property Manager

Shellbrook Apartments Party

It’s getting really exciting around here at Shellbrook these days! It’s bittersweet, but we are thrilled to say that the old clubhouse has been demolished and the new one is on it’s way! For those of you that don’t already know, we are building a new clubhouse that is going to be over 4,000 square feet! This clubhouse will include the Business office, a new Fitness Center, a centralized mail center, Business Center, Billiards Room, and last but not least…..the NEW POOL!!! The clubhouse will also include a lounging area and will be open 24/7! What a treat! We hope you all are as excited as we are about the renovation! #beforemidtownwascool

Sweet Emotions

This clubhouse has helped create many memories over its lifetime. As we prepare for demolition day on Monday June 27, 2016 we would like to take a look at the existing clubhouse and reflect. We do hold Shellbrook as a place with many special memories for residents and staff alike who have celebrated special occasions like resident bridal/baby showers, graduation celebrations, and super bowl parties; just to name a few. This clubhouse in particular holds a special place in the hearts of many, including Drucker & Falk’s Director Kellie Falk. Kellie's father built this clubhouse and community in 1972 and was the site of one infamous celebration: Kellie's 18th birthday party. We are excited to begin this sentimental journey and hope our residents and community will share this experience with us by following our blog and documentation of the progress on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Feel free to share your photos of the progress, using #BeforeMidtownWasCool
