My husband and I are interested in moving to NC and are coming for a visit to go house hunting. A few houses we are interested in are in the Colonial Heights neighborhood in Raleigh. Anyone familiar with this area? We are also looking into Raleigh itself although I know that is a pretty broad area. Do you have an opinion, good/bad on Raleigh...what areas are the best in terms of old world charm? I love the older homes with some character! A decent piece of land wouldn't hurt either. It's just me and my hubby, no children so schools are of no concern. We are looking to spend up to $275,000 with some land.

I prefer the Raleigh area over that particular area myself. There are some nice neighborhoods in Raliegh that might fit such as Springdale Estates (one right now in your price range on about 1 acre), Quail Hollow, North Haven, and maybe could also find somethiing in Oak Park neighborhood. Also in Cary there may be some.. I'm thinking Scottish Hills at the top of my head. There are plenty out there, just need to decide what area you would like to concentrate on.

Thank you very much for the suggestions. We will be looking into them. Right now we are going to come to NC for a couple if weeks and just browse neighborhoods and look at some houses that have caught my attention via the internet. I'm sure we will come and check things out more than once to get a good feel of what's out there
