I am looking at a development that is new and is off of Marvin School Rd. It is called Bridle path estates off of Wyndham Halll. I like it because it is 1 acre and the builder is Orleans. Only thing is it does not have a pool/tennis etc. Do you think this is bad? I plan to put my own pool in and like to socialize at my home. I figured I would eventually join a club of some sought so I can play tennis. Also, I would think my boys would meet friends in school, neighborhood and sports.

Orleans is also building in Weddington but the acreage is much smaller 1/3rd to .5 if your lucky and it is a 200 home community. Same exact homes, but they have amenities. The homes are big so I am nervouse because the houses will be so close together. There is trees in the back because of conservation areas mandated by Weddington.
I am so confused. Help anyone.[/quote]

Just my opinion, and I'm not a realtor so maybe one of them would tell you differently, but I do not think buying into a neighborhood without a pool or tennis courts would hurt you on resale (especially in your price range). Out that way in there are several great YMCA's that are very popular. Your boys would find great sports programs there for sure. If you are nervous about the other neighborhood because the houses are too close together that's more of a personal preference thing, most likely not an issue on resale either. That whole area is extremely desirable and will no doubt continue to be so. Good luck in your decision

Default Amenties Or Not?

Thanks, it is good to hear your response because those were my thoughts too. I am not really one for overcrowded amenities. (It is like my town pool here). Someone brought up a good point on Marvin creek which has awesome amenities (lazy pool, etc), that the community is 400 homes (which equates to many many individuals). How the heck is that amenity going to accomodate even half the people.
I just think there is more value with acreage. That is the case here in Long Island. If my house was on an acre (I am on a qtr or a third) it would be worth 1million more. When it was purchased 40 years ago by prior owners the price difference of the developments was probably about $25k which was alot of $ back then.
I love the Marvin area. And the people seem so much nicer in NC than in NY. And as far as missing NYC - NOT. I went Sat night to a black tie affair at the HYATT and I tell you I felt like a little irrelevant person in the big city. And it was sosososo crowded. Talk about stress. It also took over an hour to get in when I live 30 minutes away
