You might like being in St James Plantation, if you like a year-round golf resort. However, Pinehurst's history is unique.

Flood insurance depends on the specific location of the property. There's no way to generalize about it. I live a hundred yards or so from the Cape Fear River, and I'm not in a flood zone and am not required to have flood insurance. A little way across town is an area further from the river, but in a flood zone. Here is a link to the current flood zone maps: North Carolina Floodplain Mapping Program I think new ones are coming out next year.

You might want to look at Southport....we certainly have mature landscaping....lots of 100 plus year old live oaks, beautiful old, historic houses. Parts of Wilmington fit the bill, obviously a larger city than Pinehurst. Maybe New Bern or Washington.

There is a possibility of my husband getting a civilian job at camp lejeune, we are in our early 50's. Looking for a newer home in a safe community with mature landscaping. I dont like the barren look of new dev with no trees

Look around the Country Club area or Northwoods in Jacksonville. Both have places slightly older homes with nice mature oaks and big lots.

If the husband doesn't mind a commute from Sneads Ferry, look at Mimosa Bay. The developer requires the preservation of the largest trees. We have a nice combination of newer house with large old trees. There are probably similar neighborhoods in Swansboro on th east side of Lejeune.

New Bern and Washington are no good.. New Bern is a nice little boating town, but BORING. Not many trees anymore as they are taking them down to give the town a more "pristine" look.

I like the olde towns too... Wilson has a great downtown area, but not close to the beach. If anything, I'd look closer to Wilmington for a similar feel, although Wilmington does have higher end areas with little to no mature landscaping in parts.
