I'lll be selling a house with a pool and I think that moving my kids to a neighborhood with a pool would help ease their transition. (I have no desire to ever own my own pool again)

Is it possible to find a brick ranch neighborhood with pool for under 200k? I don't want to have to buy a townhome just to get a pool....

Of course we could join a swim club but we definitely want to be able to walk a few blocks.

I'm a little surprised at the apparent lack of municpal pools. My town in NY has one...swim all day for 50 cents!

If you change "brick" to "vinyl" you should be able to find something. Holly Springs would have something, if you want Wake County. You could also find something in Durham.

There are brick ranches, but most of them are not in pool neighborhoods.

You definitely won't need a townhome.

Look around central Cary and then join Cary Swim Club. Central Cary DOES have brick ranches under 200K (I live in one) and most of us that live around here go to Cary Swim Club. It's walkable from several neighborhoods.

Also, look at Scottish Hills in Cary, which is similar and also has a great neighborhood swim club.

Virtually every new development in the triangle has a neighborhood pool, but you might be hard pressed to find a brick ranch house less than 30 years old around here. Neighborhoods that old generally wont have a pool, as it didn't become the norm until probably 15 years ago. Most of the towns (Morrisville, Holly Springs etc, Cary is building a huge one) do have at least one municipal pool but generally speaking they are more geared for lap swimming and classes than places for kids to hang out, and most likely it will be a decent drive to get there.
