Stonehenge is a well-known, family-oriented, residential subdivision founded in 1977. There are nearly 1400 single-family residences in this popular North Raleigh community.

The neighborhood is not strictly contained by roadways, but generally speaking, the majority of the community is roughly bounded by Lake Lynn and its watershed to the west, Strickland Road to the north, a line between Creedmoor and Lead Mine roads to the east, and Howard Road to the south. The major north-south roadways which divide the neighborhood are Creedmoor Road (a multi-lane, state-maintained thoroughfare which has an interchange with I-540) and Ray Road (a rural, two-lane roadway which passes over I-540).

While portions of the community are within city limits, the older and larger contiguous central section of the subdivision (roughly bounded by Ray, Howard, Strickland and Creedmoor roads) represents one of Raleigh's zoning 'donuts' -- an unincorporated area of the county that has become surrounded on all sides property annexed by the City of Raleigh. Residents in the unincorporated section of Stonehenge receive water from a private community utility, their properties include septic systems, the homeowners are responsible for trash and recycling removal, and emergency services are provided by county agencies. Most homes in the newer phases of Stonehenge are built within Raleigh city limits, so nearly all of those subdivisions include sidewalks, curb & gutter roadways, and provision of city services.

A non-profit homeowners association governed by seven directors supports various projects throughout the year, including the Stonehenge Living newsletter, the Stonehenge directory, social events, representation in neighborhood zoning and traffic projects, and various other community initiatives. While membership in the association by property owners is entirely voluntary, each property owner's deed references neighborhood covenants that are enforced by the association.

While a number of subdivisions, apartment complexes, retail centers, and retirement communities in the vicinity include 'Stonehenge' in their names, few are actually part of the neighborhood that is governed by the Stonehenge Homeowners Association. (The actual property location and deed determines whether a particular residence falls within its jurisdiction.)

According to, as of 2009, the average estimated value of detached houses in Stonehenge Neighborhood was $282,380.
