Question is way too broad to give specific advice. Sorry. If you are already interested in Moore Co, stick with that until/unless you determine it won't work for you. Come for a visit. Get realtor referrals, maybe from a C-D'er who lives there (I don't). Find a realtor to show you around, and poke around on your own.

Actually the question is not too broad. I have asked similar questions for other parts of the country and I have gotten sage advice. Much comes thru private mails. The internet is a phenomenal tool. Just can't jump in the old pickup and visit everywhere cold..

I think North Carolina and Virginia offer some of the best retirement options in the country. Now I just have to find my house. A quality smaller ranch house on a little land with a view..

Thanks!

Since a view implies rolling hills with some open farmland, you should look at the western half of the state. The area around the Uwharrie National Forest is a good place to start.

There was a similar thread by a person who also wanted a view, and the thread got good suggestions. Perhaps you can find the thread.

Thanks goldenage1, I will seek the thread. I started a search yesterday in the Uwharrie forest. Looks like a very nice area.

Many thanks.

They may have been specifically looking for "rolling hills" in the view.

This thread isn't so much about views, but has some information on brick ranch-style homes.

Is it just me or are there waaay too many single story brick houses and manufactured houses in NC?

goldenage1 - Can you give me any input regarding Richmond. Are there any parts/suburbs that you would suggest.

roadpony - Can you suggest areas in North Carolina. Just want a quality ranch house on a little land. Would like a view.
Which county are you in, in South Jersey?

A view of what?

What do you want to be near?

IMO it is hotter in the Sand Hills than in the Triangle during the Summer.

So true just like the Winter, 28 in Raleigh with snow, 33 in Pinehurst with rain.
