The Carolina is a golf community in Southern Pines where there is some new home building taking place to bring new life to the community. The golf course is nice, but the ownership has had some problems that have held it back in the past. The golf course owner does not own the neighborhood, though. Because it’s in a great location, we still have high hopes for the community. Although the gate is not being operated at the moment, it’s really the only gated community in the popular Farm Life Elementary School district. Our bet is that the golf course will get purchased in the next few years and that the For the time being, we think the new homes represent a good value in a fantastic location with a lot of momentum. There are not any other new home communities with as much potential as The Carolina.
Homes in the Carolina average in the high $200k’s. Due to a flurry of new home building that began in 2013, it’s now fair to say that most of the homes in the neighborhood are new homes. We’ve been in the new homes and have happy clients living in some of them! A few are on the golf course, but most are being built on interior lots. One of the best things about the neighborhood is that it has the feel of a much more established community. The terrain is rolling and the woods look more mature than in some of the newer developments.
The Carolina is located on a golf course where it’s possible to walk or jog when golfers are not out in full force. Actually, as of 2016, the golf course is closed. It’s also possible to access the Greenway Trail system from neighborhood. The Greenway, in turn, is a trail system that leads to Reservoir Park and eventually all the way to Pinehurst!!
