Smile where to relocate in nc

Hi there,

I'm still new to this but here goes... my husband is retiring from local fire dept in md, and we love nc, but not sure where to go. We are looking for at least an acre of land, approx. 2400 sq ft home, peaceful area (having said that we have 2 preteens and they need some things to do) and between 225-325k range. We are right now visiting clayton, seems like alot of building going on...

We have also visited the new bern area, didn't like the feel, but we might not have stayed long enough?

My husband grew up around the Ches Bay, loves fishing and boating and I would like to find an area that has some water, large lake, inlet, or river.

We've thought about Edenton, Greenville, etc and also Lake Gaston or Kerr.

Does anyone out there have any ideas? Thanks so much

You could try Lake Gaston or Kerr Lake. There is also Falls Lake in Raleigh/Wake Forest and Durham areas. There is a lot of growth in Clayton, it is one of the biggest growth areas. If you want an acre- try Youngsville, Knightdale, Zebulon and also Wake Forest.

Best of luck!!

Thanks - we actually visited Kerr Lake and Falls Lake today.... really nice, my husband would love to fish there. Do you know of any subdivisions or good towns to look at around these areas?

Thanks
