Trees, some hills, pretty scenery and good schools are important as well as affordable ($100,000 or less) housing with a couple acres would be nice. Does anyone have info about some small towns. I have read some threads on Asheboro, but that's kinda big for me. I'm wondering maybe about smaller towns around the area. Thanks for any help. Also any info about area wildlife I should be careful of would be great.
I just moved into a little town on the outskirts of greensboro called "summerfield". great place, very quiet.

Pleasant Garden and Climax area is probably what you're looking for. I live in Climax and it's rural with the convenience of Greensboro - 20 minutes away, Asheboro 25 minutes away and Burlington 35 minutes away. South of Greensboro, North of Asheboro. Good luck w/the move. Don't let the rednecks scare you off......they're just all mouth and no substance! haha
Welcome! It'll be nice to have some new neighbors that don't drool.

I agree with CarolinaTeacher, the SW area of Randolph County is the best. The schools are great and the area is nice. I live on the north end of Asheboro near Randleman. Its close to Greensboro and High Point, yet far enough away from the traffic and the noise.

I live in Brown Summit, GREAT AREA. Country everywhere. The problem you might find is that the prices for anything with land are high. The area is great but the triad area is still priced high. You just have to decide if you want country or city and then that will determine your price. Hope you find what your looking for. North Carolina is a great place to live!!!!

We used to live in Randleman, and moved away BECAUSE of public schools. As far as I know, there are no "charter" schools in Randolph County. There are a few private schools, mostly Christian based. For the most part, public school or home school are your only options in that area.

Most of Randolph County is still rural, so the zoning for your animals should not be a problem. But schools can be, and real estate prices are all over the page. Good luck though on your move!
