Looking for a little help on where to start looking for housing. Husband will be working at Wachovia in Charlotte. We prefer a rural setting (big dogs, kids, and need room to roam), but equal emphasis would be put on great schools - public or private. Would like to keep commute to 30-45 mins maximum. We are very into hiking, biking, and basically all outdoor pursuits. Any ideas where to start looking? Thanks!

Same is true for Union County -- you can find good sized properties in very nice areas. Of course, I am partial to South Charlotte and the Union county areas

Also, try NC report card website for school reports

Depends on what the price includes :-) Ideally we are looking for 5 + acres, trees, privacy, charm, or something on water. If we don't find what we want in an exsisting home we would build. Somewhere in the 350-400 range. Also, as far as schools go - we are very into the arts - music, foreign languages, et. are very important.

On MLS it seems the northern areas might work better for you in that price range and acreage requirements. Charlotte agent can probably help you best...but if you are looking toward the south just let me know

Troutman and Mooresville north of Charlotte and Clover/Lake Wylie (SC) southwest of Charlotte would be worth a look.

I agree with the above poster...take a look at Clover, SC (if you want acreage) and/or Lake Wylie, SC if you want to be on/or near the lake (Lake Wylie). Both areas are in York County, loads of outdoor activities, and also within the Clover School district (which has a very good reputation).
