Meadowlands is a nice golf course, designed by Hale Irwin. Wallburg is a nice rural area convenient to W-S, G'Boro and H-P. I don't know anything about the schools there, but have had friends over the years that have had children attend Ledford HS. (My guess is that the schools may not rank as high as the better schools in the nearby cities, but I do not know this to be absolutely true - it's just a guess.) I think the housing lining the golf course was at one time slow to get started, but I think it is well on it's way now. I have not been in the area for a couple of years...

thank you.....

you mentioned the nearby cities may have better school ratings....can I ask which you would recommend>\?

I have 3 boys 13, 10, 5 so the schools are very important.....I dont want redistricting and sports and music programs are important to the kids
we're open to areas since we dont have a commute we're just looking for new 4br+ bonus room possible office/study and a useable yard possibly to put a pool in....

but as I said the schools are of the utmost importance to us.....we're looking up to low $300's preferrably

With a family like you have I would highly suggest looking at the west side of W-S. W-S is a great place to raise a family. Look at New Sherwood Forest area for housing - you should find houses that fit your needs with prices ranging from high-$200s to well over $1MM. Or "old" Sherwood Forest has older houses, which is the original neighborhood. Both areas are very large. There are some great schools for that neighborhood, Sherwood Elem., Jefferson Middle and Mt. Tabor HS & Reagan HS. If you wanted to live outside of W-S you should look at Lewisville, Clemmons and Pfafftown...and maybe Kernersville.

We're definately looking for new or newer construction maybe a 2/3 years old at most...we're leaving a home we've totally redone over the past 13 years so I dont want to do that again.....I want to spoil myself in that sense...

I definatley want an area/sub that is child friendly and has other areas close by for friends....we're not looking for subs that are far out from one another...

I'm just totally naive when it comes to this area since I had been searching clayton for the past couple of months but really want to keep our options open and maybe find an area a little more current if that makes sense.....

I think you'll find exactly what you're looking for in the areas I mentioned.

Sherwood Forest is known as the area's name, however there is a road named Sherwood Forest Road. The area is in zip code 27104.

Here is a link to Allistair Road, which is a main road going into New Sherwood Forest. You'll see on the map where Allistair Road and Peace Haven Road. This is a primary entrance to New Sherwood Forest. On the west side of Peace Haven Road is New Sherwood Forest.

Here, try this to narrow the search - I put in $250K - $400K single family dwelling for Sherwood Forest...(but it also includes Buena Vista area and Old Sherwood Forest):
