I answered your question on the other thread, perhaps you didn't see it?

Between Concord and Albemarle the better schools are in Concord. As a whole Cabarrus county schools are better than what you will find anywhere around Albemarle. You can still get a rural feel by living near Concord in Harrisburg. Good luck

Default Albemarle Plantation

We visited Albemarle Plantation in NC last year. The development is new and very pretty. It is on a lake and the views were great. The weather was nice when we went too.
My problem with the area is that there is really nothing outside of Albemarle Plantation -- absolutely nothing. The closest "city" is Elizabeth City, and you have to travel at least an hour to get to it. The real city is Newport News in Virginia, and that is about 3 hours away.
The school closest to the development was in a very rundown area, and I would never send my child there. It was positively scary-looking. So I guess that would mean private school (but I didn't see any nearby).
Coming from the suburbs, it was just too far away from everything for me.

I think this area you visited is not the same as the one the poster is referring to. We are talking about the town of Albemarle in Stanly County nearer to Charlotte

Moderator cut: development/property sales link

I don't know a thing about this particular community. I'll never understand the appeal of a gated community in a small town area. What's the draw?

Yes, not to be confused with the famous hometown of American Idol's Kellie Pickler, which is relatively close to Charlotte.

I think maybe Albemarle Plantation is out near the Albemarle Sound by the Outer Banks. If it is near Elizabeth City...just guessing.

It's very quiet, with many historic homes. Albemarle schools are small but pretty good, and there is a YMCA right downtown. Morrow Mountain State Park is 10-15 minutes away, and the NC Zoo in Asheboro is an hours drive. Very small-town feel, but no high paying banking/IT/medical jobs like the big cities.
