You have picked an area full of great subdivisions. If you would prefer an older (and often better built home) I would suggest Sartis Plantation, Sardis Forest, Somersby or even a few in your price range in Providence Plantation. Of course there is one of my favorite, Greenbriar, but I also like Hampton Green and Courtney. If you perfer newer, Try Matthews Grove, Providence Glen, McKee Woods and Willowmere. If you want new construction, I recently helped clients build a house in Greylock and Ryan homes did a great job. Their building superintendant there, Dusty, is really great.
As far as the age groups in these different areas, they all differ a great deal. IT is almost impossible to pick a subdivision in this area by age group. I suggest that you drive thru some of these areas on a Saturday or Sunday to see who may be out in their yards.
These subdivisions also have a wide variation on the size of lots, so you need to decide how much yard work you want to have to do and choose accordingly.

I just moved from the Plaza-Midwood area and had lived there for 6 years and loved it. The only reason we moved was to renovate another home in the south end. I've also done homes in the Commonwealth-Morningside area. That is a great value area and good for long term investment.
We specialize in short sale and foreclosure properties. I just posted this video on what to expect for timings if you make an offer on a short sale. let me know if I can help you out at all:
It appears that in my last response I was thinking of Presbyterian in Matthews not near Uptown. Let me see...Close to the Uptown area is a little harder is you want a backyard. Within 1 mile of the hospital is Chantilly that has a number of really cute home within your price range. One is an older home that is about to be foreclosed on but short sale are not as bad as many agents say. There is also a newer home in there that is cute. There is also a very nice looking home within about 6 blocks of the hospital. Those are the ones withing a mile. I'm sure if we extend the circle a bit more there will be a lot more homes. Your request is very doable.
Check out my website and search for homes using 28204 to see the ones within walking distance. The Chantilly are in zip code 28205 but that will take in a lot of other homes also. You can check them by map then. If you register on my website, I can email you homes. Be sure to mention Trulia so I connect with this request.
At $300M, you will have to make some significant trade-offs. No realtor can know what is important to you - bedrooms, square footage, location, etc. You can do most of this research yourself at ZipRealty - see my profile below. I am working with several clients with a family member in the middle east and would be pleased to assist you too.
If you can stand a smaller house there are some great intown neighborhoods: Chantilly, Midwood and Commonwealth Park but the houses are smaller.... like around 1500 sq. feet in general for $300,000.
