I've recently been transferred to Camp Lejeune and we've made a visit to the area and we're thinking about buying a home in The Landing at Mill Creek in Sneads Ferry( Mill Creek Sneads Ferry, NC ) . If anyone has any thoughts or experiences with the Neighborhood or the area it would be a big help. Thanks in advance.

There were a few builder foreclosures listed in there. One was listed for $215,000. I'd say that's a pretty good deal for a brand new 1800 sq ft brick house. I'd put in a low-ball offer on one of those foreclosures since they are brand new homes. You just might luck up and get a steal.

I actually looked at the bank owned properties and there are a number of construction issues that concerned me in addition to the fact that you have a house that one contractor(who was going under) started and another one finished it. I'm actually looking at one of the cottages they are breaking ground on in Phase 2. The builder is the developer of the neighborhood and the homes he built in the first phase are of really high quality. I'm really just looking for some locals opinions on the neighborhood and the homes, I've always preferred an objective opinion over a sales one.

Have three friends who live there and love it - all retirees - their homes in Phase I are truly lovely...they are a little disappointed that Phase II is going to be as it is since it was supposed to be larger homes...but understand that it is to be craftsman cottages that are very cute, like the ones in the Neighborhoods of Holly Ridge.

I'm writing to clarify a misconception. We lived at The Landing at Mill Creek several years ago and were actually the first residents in the subdivision. The houses are beautifully built. Mark, the developer, is a perfectionist, and the vast majority of the homes are very solidly built. There were four lots that he allowed other builders to purchase and build homes on. The builder did a horrible job and went bankrupt. Mark couldn't guarantee the work that the other builder did, so the mostly-finished homes went into foreclosure and had to be bought/finished by other builders. It's not true that all of the homes in Phase I were built by a builder who went out of business. There were only four. We loved living in Mill Creek. The homes and the subdivision are well-designed. There are sidewalks around the entire neighborhood and a large common area behind the homes in Phase I that is perfect for practicing football or baseball. You can have the big back yard without the responsibility of having to cut it.

Angry mill creek

The developer of Mill Creek has disappeared with all the money. The homeowners are having to start from now to try and provide what Mark Evens left us with......a big mess.

I know this is an old thread, so if this is a new development, please explain what money, and what is the impact. Homes are being sold now, and people should know.

Is the developer Mark in the wind? Who is handling new homes? Could someone please let me know if the cottage style houses like Holly Ridge are restricted to the Mill Creek area. I am retired and seek a small one story cottage type home. Thanks!

I believe Mill Creek is a mature development now, selling mostly resales. It is probably the only are where large numbers of the cottage style homes are being sold. Several other developments in Sneads Ferry have one-story homes, but not the "cottagey" style. You might try Bill Clark Homes if you want a brand-new house.

I suggest visiting Mill Creek before you decide it is right for you. I am not sure how many retired people live there. My impression is that it is mostly young families with little kids.
