The Cottages on May is the newest neighborhood in Southern Pines. It’s on the North side of town just steps from Horse Country. New homes are being started and completed as we write this. The community is designed to be like downtown – think really small lots, sidewalks and a lot of front porches and curb appeal.
The homes are awesome looking – think craftsman style with fantastic front porches loaded with curb appeal. The houses range from about 1,300 sq. ft. to about 2,000 sq. ft.; and feature either 3 or 4 bedrooms. The cost of these homes per square foot is pretty stout – but you’re getting really well designed, space efficient houses that look fantastic. They are close together, but that’s on purpose – the intent to mimic the original downtown area (just a few blocks away).
You’re right IN downtown So Pines – or right at the very edge. It’s the hottest spot in the area. If you are in this neighborhood, you can stroll into town in less than 10 minutes depending on the exact location of your house. You’ll find coffee shops, locally owned shops, the historic Sunrise Theater, brewpubs, cool restaurants – and the list goes on and on. So Pines is also home to numerous festivals and concerts throughout the year and a great farmers market in the warmer months. There’s a lot more – but you get the picture!
