Hi Tega Cay folks (I know there are many of you out there)! We are really considering moving to the area this summer. Could you give me honest feedback on the area (the good and bad). We are looking for a home in the 300K price range and have 2 young children. I know the schools are great and the community activities look appealing. What am I not seeing?? Any neighborhoods to really look into and any to avoid?

Thanks for all your help!

I love it. We're building there right now and can't wait to be in our house. Agreed on the schools and the community activities. Have you seen the Beach and Swim Center? I can't wait to move in.

It really can be divided into a couple of categories. There is the old section that was originally the resort development, from the Golf Club back (all the streets with Polynesian names). That is a diverse collection of really unique houses that might seem close together until you go inside and realize they're all situated to take best possible advantage of the rugged terrain and any water views.

There are some newer neighborhoods like Seven Coves, Water Trace, and Heron Harbor where you can find some larger homes built by individual builders over the last 1-30 years. And at least one that's being built at this very moment by my DH; the very same one I'm going to go help paint right now!

Then there is the new construction - LakeShore at Lake Wylie. A beautiful collection of townhomes and everywhere from mid-sized to large homes in a cohesive community full of new playgrounds, a dog park, the beach center, etc.

As far as I'm concerned you can't go wrong. It all depends on what you like and what you'd most like to have within walking distance. Although if you're enterprising enough, you can walk just about anywhere since it's only 3 square miles.

The only complaint I've ever heard was from someone who lived near the marina -- that too many people were parking on his street because they didn't have the proper permits to park at the marina.

I'm sure lovesthecarolinas can give you more when she swings by - she's the resident Tega Cay expert.

Can't beat it here...Golf, Lake, Tennis, Trails, and nice parks. We love it here in Tega Cay. We were going to move, but decided to remodel our house so we could stay on the golf course.

I have spoke to you (or typed/emailed/responded or whatever you want to call it) in a previous thread some time back. From that I remember you liked Tega Cay (as do I). I remember your hubby was to work in Ballantyne (again..nice commute from TC to Ballantyne), and you are aware we have really good schools here in Fort Mill....so what are you waiting for?

Seriously though...the only downside for you might be if your children are elementary school age. If that is the case...just so you know...your children would not attend Gold Hill Elementary this year (as there is a current freeze on new enrollment)...but in fact your children would attend Riverview Elementary. Riverview is still within the Fort Mill school system (and still a good school)...it just will be a little longer commute for your children. But, if that is not a problem...then come on down!!
