I would love to hear about the Lexington area. There seem to be some nice homes in the area( low to mid 200's) with good sized lots. Schools are not an issue.
Thanks

Hi, I notice from your previous posts that you are looking for country setting and Davidson County (County Lexington is located) would fit your bill. The county is mostly rural and if your looking to be really close to winston salem I would focus on homes in Arcadia, Midway and Welcome.
From Downtown Lexington you can get to Winston within 20 minutes.

Lexington could be a great bedroom community that is kinda of a good kept secret. Definite lot of nice homes on nice size lots.
The downtown needs some love but it due to it long term industry has gone overseas for production which was furniture. There are a few cute shops in the downtown. Also some beautiful 20's homes in the downtown.

The people there are very friendly and great place you can get to know your neighbor.
A great place to watch the birds, squirrels or gaze at the blooms of a magnolia tree.

It in a good location to venture to other cities greensboro within 30 minutes and charlotte is within hour.

You probably are going cross alot of listings that have lexington address in that county but the homes are located in the country side due to home is in unincorporated area so a lexington postal address was assigned to them.

It definite a buyer market in that county so make sure you wheel and deal on closing costs etc.

I live in northern Davidson county, work in Lexington and it will take you more like 30 minutes to get into Winston Salem from downtown Lexington.

Lexington is a small town that is suffering economically. Not much shopping unless you like SuperWalMart. Most people shop in Winston Salem but Greensboro and even Charlotte is within an hour or so drive. The city schools are not as good as county schools in case schools do become an issue. Some arts are available - there is a gallery and an active children's theatre.

There are a lot of families from other areas that transplanted to northern Davidson county, but real estate is more expensive here than Lexington. The county commissioners don't see the northern part of the county as something they want to deal with--they just see us as part of Winston Salem. Midway did incorporate so they will not be annexed into WS if that time comes.

Don't know if that's what you wanted, but hope it helps.

Davidson County is a lovely area with many things to do - see below.

Lexington is depressed because of the furniture industry leaving but Winston-Salem is about 20-30 minutes from Lexington.

I live in Davidson county and love the area, the people and the low taxes.

230-mile canoe trail on the Yadkin Pee Dee River with easy access in Davidson County.
Lexington is the self named Barbecue Capital of the World. The Lexington Barbecue Festival is held in late October.
Uwharrie Mountains pass through the southeast tip of Davidson County, great for hiking.
Home to Mrs. Hanes Moravian Cookie Factory - Homemade and hand rolled thin cookies.
At the crossroads of Highway 64 and 52 is the Childress Vineyard and Winery which has daily wine tastings.
A group of upscale specialty stores are next to the Childress Vineyards.
Lexington is home to Bob Timberlake a painter of rural landscapes and Furniture Designer, whose gallery is a country store, museum and furniture showroom all in beautiful lodge-like home.
High Rock Lake offers swimming, boating and have hosted the Bassmaster Classic.

Good Luck.
Aim for that hole-in-one at the Lexington Municipal Golf Course.

That sounds cool Im glad you enjoyed it. If you do choose lexington stop at the square at Conrad Hinkles a little grocery store still in original style and format least for last 50 years I do not know when they open for buisness.

Original flooring and tin ceilings and they cut your meat the way you like it. And my favorite is the pimento cheese. http://www.uptownlexington.com/trails/heritagewalk.pdf

Lexington is a place that time has forgot and that can be a good thing or bad thing depending on the individual.
