Hi All, I will be starting work at the VA in Fayetteville. Looking for semi-rural, safe areas with easy commute to VA. I have been researching King's Grant, Wade and Lillington. Any help is welcome. Thanks! - Wendy

Kings Grant would be a good choice. It is the third most expensive neighborhood in town and because it is gated should be very safe. Depending on your price range you will find very very nice places just up the road from the VA hospital. Look for Fairfield Farms or Greystone Farms. I would be happy to help you find something that will be a good fit. Just send me a direct message.

I agree with faabala. I live in Durham now, but when I lived in Fayetteville I remember some pretty decent neighborhoods out off of Ramsey Street out past the Goodyear plant. Lot of horse farms and nice wooded areas. Pretty sure they were in the county not city.

Only bad thing is that you always have to drive back towards the city to do any shopping. I don't even remember seeing a grocery store out there; but the drive isn't but a few miles. Good luck!

If you don't consider the commute too long(20-30 min), you might also consider Sanford.

We have a lot of folks from Bragg and Polk that like the small town feel, with all the conveniences of a small city of about 30k population.

Here are a couple maps showing Sanford relative to the region:

Good luck with your move!

Default Eastover

Hi there,

You may want to consider Eastover as it has an easy commute to the VA. The schools in Eastover are also better rated than the ones in the Kings Grant catchment area.
