We are a family of 4 looking to move to Wake Forest, or Chapel Hill area. Our two kids are 8 and 11 and we are looking for a great school system. We came for a visit during x-mas break and stayed on Duke University campus and visited Wake Forest and Chapel Hill. Loved the area and the sports!
We are wondering what subdivisions or areas of Wake Forest and Chapel Hill are worth looking at. We want to buy a house with at least 1/2 acre and 2500 - 3300 square feet. It would be great if there was a cmmunity pool and tennis. But #1 is a neighborhood with kids. Cape Cod is such a seasonal location, there are kids around only 2 summer months during the year.
Any help would be appreciated

Your thread Title says North Raleigh, but your post says you are only considering Wake Forest or Chapel Hill.

Do you telecommute for work? Wake Forest and Chapel Hill are not exactly right next to each other and offer very different commutes depending on where it is you need to drive to.

What kind of price point are you working in? 3,300 sq/ft on 1/2 acre will cost a pretty penny but even more so in Chapel Hill.

Thanks for the clarification. I guess I should have written Raleigh area. We aren't shure where we want to be yet. I like Wake Forest, but my husband thinks the Chapel Hill schools would be better. So, we are looking to pick an area nd then a street/subdivision-any insight, suggestions welcome!
thanks!
