Hello all,
I'm from Manchester, lived in Hooksett, Dunbarton, Ashland, and now I'm in Littleton. My husband works at Bretton Woods and I got a job 6 months ago on the Concord/Pembroke line. Driving an hour and a half one way to work is taking it's toll on me. We are going to look to buy a house later this winter half way between our jobs which puts us in Plymouth. Ashland and Campton will be a choice but only if the house is a PERFECT fit. I'm Leary to move to a college town. I love Plymouth and love that whole area but I only know Ashland in-depth. Does anyone live in Plymouth that can tell me more of the in-depth local feel for adults? We want to start a family so I'm looking to know about things like trick or treating, things that locals do, neighborhoods, the locals and how they interact. Nothing against college students but we are in our mid 30s so we are very past that stage. We don't want to buy a house around the school and I know the streets very well because I was a courier in Plymouth. We need to stay on the outskirts but close to downtown. If there r neighborhoods in town but not all college kids rentals in those neighborhoods plz let me know what they are. We don't want to go too far up Tenney Mtn Hwy into Rumney just Plymouth. Campton and Holderness line are fine too. Thanks for any info!

If you want a more rural feel I would suggest look at areas of Plymouth that are the closest to the junction of 25 and 3A. That area is mostly rural with a much lower overal population density. Just south of there on 3A is Hebron but it is a spendy town unless a few modest properties come up on the market. It is also a bit further removed from the 93 corridor.

Thanks GraniteStater. I'm not worried about the rural part. I live in Littleton and I've lived in Ashland lol. My concern is being completely in the middle of all college students. I can't live out that far because my husband and I want to live less than an hour from work. Hebron area is too far. That whole side of the lake is. I wish I could live over there though because there are some really nice areas!

I can gurantee you that the western edge of Plymouth near 3A will have very few college students. The zoning is all rural residential. On another note, that area of town is still very close to all the box stores and other conveniences as well.

I've Been checking out the Highland St area because it's not too far down and still connects to town and there are a few neighborhoods along that street. Thanks for pointing out that part of town.

Don't forget that Plymouth has a high property tax rate due to the college buying up property & taking it off the tax-lists.

I know Brave. Ideally we would live in Thornton because the property taxes seem much lower. That puts me at a little over an hour drive to work though. I'm hoping we find a house right off exit 27 on the Campton line. That would be perfect!
