My family is moving to Pinehurst in August. We are looking to buy in the Billage. I would love your thoughts on the area - projected growth? We have deciding between The O'Neal School and Pinehurst Elementary - would love any insider information on the 2 schools. We currently live in a walkable neighborhood and love the idea of walking to shops, restaurants and parks. We love living in a small town - the slower pace and community feel fits us - Pinehurst offers our family a great location for weekend trips to the beach and mountains. We love the idea of walking to Pinehurst Country Club and The Village Chapel. My main concern is real estate - are the village homes appreciating or is the area on the decline? Thanks for any info....

Hi I hope you don’t mind me asking if you found any info before you moved?
We visited my niece near that area and liked it but need to go back and really drive the Pinehurst area too. We have many of the questions you asked but I don’t see any replies. Thanks and hope to hear back ��

Default Pinehurst Update

We moved into our house in the Village last August and couldn’t be happier. Everyone love the Village area - this is where most want to live. We joined The Village Chapel and love walking to church. We walk/ride bikes everywhere....Country Club, ships, restaurants, parks, festivals, etc... it is also fun going to Southern Pines but we are so glad that we bought in This area. Both O’Neal, Pinehurst Elementary and West Pines Middle are great schools. We have friends in public and private. We ended up at O’Neal because Pinehurst Elementary is moving to the park for 2 years(trailers) while they build a new school. We just didn’t want to move our kids and put them in trailers....we will re-evaluate in 2 years. I have met the nicest people through and have made great friends. It is very family oriented and there is always something for families to do....we also enjoy being so close to great day trips in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Morrow Mountain, and many more.... As far as sports there are so many options - the US kids golf academy at Longleaf is wonderful. My kids play tennis at Pinehurst Country Club, O’Neal has a year round swim program (don’t have to attend school there) and other options, for soccer they have 2 groups but prefer soccer 365, franklin Elite is a wonderful run club, Sandhills Gymnastics, tons of dance studios, upward basketball and Harlow Basketball academy....
I hope this information helps....

Default Oh wow thanks!

I canít believe Iím just seeing this now. I very much appreciate your detailed and informative reply!
My sister has her sights on Seven Lakes? Iíll look there too online for now.
We were supposed to take a drive down yesterday. It was a last minute idea but everyone already had plans out of town.
This is most likely a repeat. Weíre an older couple who had our kids late in life.
We could be their grandparents but thatís the cards we were dealt. I was very much into Golf before them and now unfortunately my mobility is having issues. Still follow a lot of the PGA and European tour albeit on the TV.
I hope you donít mind the long post. I might have more questions in the future and would feel blessed to have you reply again. Thank you.

I already thought of something lol we are both big on holidays. Would you say that’s something that is enjoyed in that area? We looked in PTC Peatchtree City Ga and tons of ppl have golf carts. They use them for everything. I realize Pinehurst doesn’t have the extensive paths that PTC does but was wondering if they’re used there off the courses? When looking at the housing I see Pinehurst No 6. Should I be typing anything else besides Pinehurst to look at things? Ok I’m off to bed lol.

Other options depend on your budget and whether you want to be require to join a Country Club. One neighborhood I like is Village Acres, as it has no club membership requirement and is very close to the center of Pinehurst. You can search Zillow on "Village Acres, Pinehurst, NC". It has numerous moderately-priced ranch houses and seems to be kid-friendly. It is also close to the walking and biking trail.

Pinehurst's walking/biking trail does not allow golf carts as it is narrow and not paved. Golf cart use is probably limited to the edges of roads and is not very safe, IMO, but it might be OK within a gated community. Peachtree City in Georgia is an exception among golf communities, in that it allow extensice use of golf-carts.
