Talking Just got back from initial Raleigh visit!

Just wanted to say Hi and give a shout out to all of the regulars on this board that have time and time again answered all of my questions about Raleigh, and in 1 years time I have never had to post a question......seriously all I have had to do is a search and POOOF there are several answers to my very questions...you guys are great! .

To make a long story short, we are both in our late 40's, kids are grown.
We would be perfectly happy in a small home but what is most important is the feel of the neighborhood and the outdoor space. We want a neighborhood that of course has a lot of trees, a bit of space between homes, 1/2 up to 1 acre preferably but for that special yard/neighborhood a small one is o.k. We have two little goobers ( aka: rat terrorist and a mixd terrorist)
No new neighborhoods for us, we saw them, didnt desire them, nuff said.
So my question is; what other subdivions are like the following:

Baytree ( off of Durant Road)
Stonehenge( cannot remember where it was.... but close to Baytree)
Coachmans Trail

Oh 1 minor detail our price range is up to 320
Thanks in advance
Robyn

Know exactly what you mean, been there, done that! I sent you a direct message on opportunities in Wake Forest for older homes with over an acre of land with mature trees. Good luck in your search!

I think in that price point and with lots at least .50 and lots of trees.

Valley Estates
Springdale Estates
Stonehenge is one of my favorites off Creedmoor Rd in Raleigh.

Try looking into Hunter Hills, Laurdane, Trappers Creek, Bayleaf Forest and Cobble Creek as well. These are a little older neighborhoods but fit your description. Good Luck.

I'll add Brookhaven and Hidden Valley to the list. Both neighbhorhoods have sizable lots but are closer to the city than some of the others.
