I went to Google maps and wasnt able to look at the street levels because North Carolina didnt have that option, is there any other websites that would be able to offer that, it just had the map option .

I have found that microsoft's local.live(dot com) maps have better satalite images of a lot of North Carolina counties than does google maps. Give it a try.

the main road running through it is Hickory Ridge Dr. It's kind of a horseshoe shape. The Chase at Kingstree is built just north of Kingstree (actually I have several homes across the treeline and creek from our back yard that are The Chase, one is a new build for sale off of Clinard Ave. for 199k as of December).
Let me know if you need any more info and I'll see if I can be of assistance.

I posted this in another thread but it is relevant if you're searching for property. This website is the county tax site, but has a lot of useful info on it: Forsyth County, North Carolina GIS
You can see previous purchase prices, annual tax rate, flood zones, schools, etc...

Property values are creeping upwards. The local developers are calling for a 8-12% yearly appreciation for the next 2-3 years. Very good place to move to. We moved here 6 years ago from NJ. We love it.
Hi, We're from NJ too and thinking about W-S area. Did you have any problems adjusting? Please let me know the good and the bad. Live in north Jersey about 22 miles from NYC. We want a nice, safe neighbor; if it's in walking distance of shops/restaurants would be a major perk.
Also assume Costco in the area? How about Trader's Joe (grocery store chain). Think there may be one in Charlotte area. Is Charlotte a long drive from W-S?
Major decision and we appreciate all your help folks!

Trader Joe's is in Charlotte, but there is a Whole Foods here. I have driven to Charlotte for TJ's and it takes about 1 hr 15 minutes or so. There is a Costco and Sam's Club. I would recommend living in the Ardmore or the West End (both older neighborhoods not subdivisions) if you want to walk with sidewalks and be near everything. We sometimes kick ourselves for living in North Davidson County because we are going through sidewalk withdrawal and get tired of not being able to walk for coffee, etc. We are about 20 minutes from downtown and have to get in our car for EVERYTHING. I find it to not be the pedistrian friendly area that I am use to in CA and it can really bother me at times. I actually drive to the Ardmore and park to just "pretend" to walk around for coffee, etc. Kind of sad, huh?

I also live in the 27127 and can see it is growing for good or bad... let me know if you need any specifics in the area.

If you have school-age children the 27127 area code will not be my first choice. Better area codes with super schools are 27104(Country Club area), 27023 (Lewisville), 27012 (Clemmons), 27106 (Sherwood area). If the schools don't matter then I would buy in the older sectionof 27127. Many new houses are being constructed but quality may have been sacrificed.

How safe are the West End and Ardmore areas? Wasn't there some recent crime just north of there, by Salem College? It looks like an awesome area, very historic, but is it safe to walk my dog around there in the evening? (especially in winter when it is dark).

I'm single in my 30s so I'd like to be closer to the 'action' but I want most of all to feel safe.

I've had friends live in both areas. West End isn't bad but it is a mixed zoning area. There are new condos being built on Broad and Fourth St. The new baseball stadium is going up just south of there on Broad, bordering Business I40. I wouldn't go east of Broad or north of Reynolda. 'West End' slopes west to the YMCA/Reynolds High School area. This takes you to N Hawthorne Rd which is just a tiny bit N of Wake Forest Medical Center complex. South of the Medical Center, Hawthorne Rd. goes through the heart of Ardmore to end at Forsyth Medical Center and Silas Creek Parkway. Clear as mud?

I see people all the time, early a.m into evening, in Ardmore walking the dog or running. I would feel more safe living in Ardmore than West End.
