I have recently been researching Greensboro area, and have found a house to lease with purchase and i really love the house. I am about to sign the lease, and I tried to found out how the neighborhood is in that area. Its in the FOxcroft subdivision on Pleasant Valley Rd...off Randleman Rd. Its me and my teenage daughter, and were moving there for the college, and a better oppurtunity. If anyone can give me a general idea on how the neighborhood is there or around there...I would so greatly appreciate it. Thanks!!

I live in Foxcroft. (My house is also on the market. ) We've lived here for almost 10 years now and have never had any problems. It's a quiet, family neighborhood. My only complaint is some people drive above the 25 mph speed limit. That's always irked me. Other than that, I can't say anything bad about Foxcroft.

I wish y'all the best.

I've never heard of any problems. That's not to say that nothing bad ever happens. Bad happens everywhere. (Even in the best areas.) But it's not out of control or common. The closer you get to I-40, the worse things get. Especially once you cross I-40. You get closer to Florida Street then and things aren't good there. But that's several miles away. The crime stays around that area and hardly ever crosses over I-40.

From what I've seen and heard, most people around here are just regular, decent, hard-working families.

Foxcroft is barely in the city limits. Though I expect the city will continue to expand over time. If you continue down Randleman Rd. a few miles, you'll be in Randolph County. A very rural county.

If you take Ritters Lake Rd. (across from Foxcroft, after you pass Wolfetrail) or Spur Rd. (further down Randleman Rd. at the blinking light), they will take you to Pleasant Garden. A lovely, small town. You can be there from here in less than five minutes.

Wal-Mart, Lowes, Hollywood Video and a few fast food places are closeby. Just take Wolfetrail to Elm-Eugene St. and make a left. I've never heard of anything bad happening around there.

There's another housing development across from Wal-Mart on Elmsley (which runs into Randleman Rd.) and some apartments as you get closer to Randleman Rd. coming from Elm-Eugene St. on Elmsley. If there is any crime going on there, I'm not aware of it.

If you take a right on Old Randleman Rd. from Randleman Rd., it's mostly older homes, then 220 and then the elementary school. Once you pass the school, things get pretty rural. I've also never heard of any crime problems around there.

We're right on the edge of city and rural, being close to both.


So that's pretty much it for this immediate area. Other than the Food Lion shopping center, CVS, Fieldstone housing development and beyond, going towards I-40. (Which I think might be business 40 now.) I pass by Food Lion a couple times a week and am at CVS a few times a month or more. I've never had any problems there (or the Wal-Mart area) and have never been nervous to go to these places.

I've lived on this side of Greensboro (nearly 10 years in this house, a few years in Pleasant Garden, and a couple years right outside of Randolph County) for the better part of 16 years and feel right at home here. Like I'm a part of it and it's a part of me. I don't know where we'll end up once our house sells though. (Whenever that will be. lol) We're looking all around the Triad pretty much.


Anyway, sorry for the ramble. I hope I answered your questions adequately.


All the best.
