Default Thoughts on Franklinton?

We're moving in that direction shortly and I'd love any thoughts on that city specifically. Anyone from there, grown up there, just moved to or from there and why? We'd actually like to be right in town but were also told to look in Stonefield subdivision, though I can't seem to locate it on a map.

Default Thoughts on Franklinton?

Hi, wordwrangler. I think you are referring to StoneRIDGE, not Stonefield, where I have been looking and it is a very nice small subdivision. I'm not too happy about the school assignment (does the high school even HAVE a track, etc.?) but looks to be only a 30-minute commute to Raleigh and close to Wake Forest, which has the great shopping. I've made two trips down there so far and will be back early July to look again at my possibilities.

I do not live there, but live in wake forest. There are definitely some things "coming" to that area, or close to it. More shopping centers are moving in that direction (new grocery store off of US 1 in youngsville, with the possibilities of many more shops). The neighborhood you are talking about, stoneridge, is nice. There are good custom builders building homes there. The people who built our house (triangle classic) are building in that neighborhood, and I have been quite impressed with them and with the quality of our house (we have been in it for 3 years).

I think in 3-5 years you will see quite a bit of change in that area, it is definitely close enough to wake forest to make it easy to get to conveniences like target, etc. I don't know much about the schools (if that is a concern) because my daughter is in school in wake county.

You will certainly get a better feel for it once you are in the area.

I just sold a home in Starmount Forest but it is in the part of Franklinton that is Granville County. Is that the area you are asking about?

Starmount Forest is a smaller neighborhood, no amenities, acre or larger lots, 3 or 4 custom builders with prices starting at around $190s. I think they have recently sold all the inventory homes but are now doing pre sales.
