Default Barham Place, Wake Forest

Any thoughts on this subdivision? Is it far away from everything? Schools, shopping, highways...

That is far out there.....has to be more like Rolesville then Wake Forest. Not sure what is out that way...but it shouldn't be too far from something....but Wake Forest might not even be the closest.

Actually, I've done some work out at Barham Place during the Parade of homes. It is a DenMark development, with ChadMor Homes, DenMark Construction, Sumner Construction and Residential Construction Resources as the builer team. It is close to being built out, although the homes remaining are nice, I don't think there's anything left under 450k, and maybe only a couple under 500k. It is a little further out, maybe 20 minutes to the Triangle Town Center mall, but not too far to be a deal breaker. The homesites are large, and the construction quality is great, imo, which makes it worth it.

It does actually sit on the Franklin County/Wake County line, so depending on which homesite you choose, you could be in either county. That affects schools, primarily, but also the taxes will be slightly different, as will your trash pick up, etc.

There is also some resale if you're not looking to build. Hope this helps, and if you need more info, feel free to pm me.

I looked at some of the houses in that development last year and liked them. However, it looks like the development is right next to (on) fields that are being farmed. Are those fields used for farming and if so is there any concern about pesticide spraying for the crops (potentially right in your backyard)? Also would that have any adverse effects on the well water?

Thanks.

Are they actually putting in wells? I would think that any new construction would have to be on the water lines.

Wow...that would be an instant 'nope' for us. Grew up with one...been there, done that. Even with a water softener it wrecks clothing, crystal and hair.

Then you get into water table levels and ground water contamination....sigh.

The 5928 Two Pines Trail House has been sitting for 5 years. Wachovia can't sell it because the storm water drainage is messed up and floods the yard and septic when it rains. The neighbor regraded his yard and made it worse. Beware of foreclosures with flooding problems.
