Hello! My husband and I are looking at buying our first home. We live in Lake Norman now (Mooresville) and we love it here! Now we're just trying to decide the best place to buy.

Opinions on Summers Walk, Vermillion, Monteith Park and Monteith Place? Or any other similar neighborhoods we should look at?? Looking to spend around 175K-200K

We both work at home now, but husband may end up working in uptown later. No kids yet, but still want good schools in case we get stuck where we are Safety and community are really important to us.

Thanks in advance for any input!!

Summers Walk and Monteith Park both feed to Bailey Middle and Hough High, I am pretty sure the other two feed to Alexander and North Meck. I think Monteith Park is the nicest of these, but I love the Saussy Burbank style and of course its closest to Northcross shopping, Summers Walk is kind of a ways down the road. Unless I am much mistaken the new Bryton WalMart will go in nearly across the street from Monteith Place, which could bring lots of traffic - the flip side being, you want to live close to WalMart in which case its perfect. One odd thing about Vermillion is that you can really see the new ABB tower from there once the leaves fall off the trees.

I am hoping to move there as well. I originally wanted to move there 4-5 months ago with the budget you have. But I did not want to move to the specified neighborhoods and decided to wait. Summers Walk seems like a good place with no issues that I know of. I did not go for vermillion primarily due to the nature of the community on how it is a crowd of upper to lower class houses and townhomes even though it was closer to Huntersville downtown. Monteith park was my first choice, but the amount of real estate did not seem to compare properly with the price especially since there weren't that many choices of plots available. I ruled out Monteith place because I was worried about how it would develop with ABB building a factory proximal to it. I have since increased my budget a little and seeing if I can find a good choice between Winding Walk Thorngate (they are suppose to develop that community a lot this year) or Skybrook villages or Centennial (but it is a 'little' overbudget).

How big of a house are you looking for? Anything in particular that you really want in a neighborhood or don't want?

For what it is worth, We looked everywhere for 6 months (in 3 counties!) for a home last spring, and ended up buying in Monteith Park. It has been a great place to live so far. Good Luck!

We have lived in Caldwell Station since August, after relocating from FL. We really love it here...nice parks, green space, pool/gym and the social committee is great about planning regular functions and activities for families and adults. Best of luck to you!
