Hi,

I was hoping someone could steer me in the right direction. I am looking for neighborhoods that aren’t brand new. We would like to have a backyard so we thought .50 acre lot would be nice. It seems that new neighborhoods are lacking in lot size. Although I would love a brand new house my husband will not agree to the small lot. I definitely want to be in a subdivision just not one with all the restrictions. Can I find this in Wake County or Franklin County? We are going to visit the area next weekend. Thanks for your help!

You will have no problem finding older homes, with fewer restrictions, on lots up to half an acre and even more, in Wake County, country or town.

There are many many neighborhoods in raleigh, wake forest, cary, etc that are older, have trees and .5 plus lots, but it all depends on what you want to spend! That will be more of a deciding factor than anything. I have clients who just bought a home in coachman's trail for close to 400k that is on 2.4 acres in a great neighborhood. So, a price range would help me narrow down your choices!

I'd suggest looking in the older parts of central Raleigh, "Inside-the-Beltline", in and around downtown, and then work your ways outwards, until you find the type of home that best fits what you'd like--but also at the right price.

Default older homes with nice lots

check out the neighborhoods off of six forks road around Shelly road. North Glen is also nice area that is almost 50 years old and affordable. It is located directly across from Hudson Memorial Church on Six Forks Road. Also look at the Quail Hollow subdivision which lies between Millbrook,Old Wake Forest, and Quail Hollow Drive. Very nice and established, yet somewhat affordable. Built in the early 60's.
