I have recently been transferred by my employer to their facility in RTP. Looking for some suggestions from folks in the area on where to narrow down my search for a new homestead.

Currently I live in central Florida in a custom built home w/5 car garage on 3 acres of rural pine flatlands about 20 minutes from Lake Okeechobee. Neighborhood is built out and am surrounded with recent custom construction on 2-5acre lots. I enjoy lake fishing every weekend with my own boat. Hunting, shooting, and working on restoring cars as well. Kids are home schooled. Am originally from north Alabama area.

I am interested in NC neighborhoods near a major fishing lake, 2-3 acre lots, no more than 35 min commute to RTP, within an existing near build-out rural neighborhood with reliable zoning enforcement as I have now. Prefer unincorporated/no HOA but would consider if zoning enforcement is lacking otherwise. Would just be looking for land/lot to re-build custom home/garage.

I'd do a land search, and I think you'll find various lots scattered around Falls Lake or Jordan Lake.

There's a great lakefront community in unincorporated Wake County 20-30 mins from RTP that meets all of your requirements....Lots are 2-3 acres....homes are on several acres as well.....Depends on your price range.....lakefront in the triangle is rare and can be more expensive than dry land...
