Your best bet is to contact a local realtor in that area, take a tour with them and begin a dialogue.

Dear Dog-Owner...

Yes, there is one off-leash dog park in the Southern Pines area, which caters to larger breeds (in my opinion). There is soon-to-be another dog park near the Southern Pines Reservoir Park. This 'new' park will have a section fenced off for the smaller breeds.

I have 2 dogs of my own, who go to the office with me as much as possible. The greenway trail around Pinehurst is also a great place to walk your dog (must be on a leash).

There are a couple of townhomes in High Point listed as waterfront. If you'd liked to see them I'm happy to arrange that for you. Also, do you need waterfront? Or just access?

Lake Norman is beautiful but also there is High Rock Lake that is located in Davidson Co. It is absolutely beautiful and not quite as "busy" and not quite as expensive as Lake Norman. My husband and I have thought about moving there ourselves.
I am a top producer with my company, ERA Premier Realty and I work hard for my clients. I can help you with your move if you haven't chose your Realtor yet.
Please visit my website at: and you can reach me on my direct line: 336-909-2208.
Kind Regards!

Hi David,

I'm answering this a bit late in the game but I wanted to let you know that Trulia's keyword search should help you out a lot. It's located on the search results page under More Search Options. You can enter any keyword or phrase into the Keyword Search field and our system will find listings with that word or phrase in the listing description.

I just performed a search in the 28601 zip code with the keyword 'golf' and found 20 results. Click on the link below to check those out.

Best Wishes,

Emily Gibson

Tons! IF you like freshwater lakes and rivers, that is. (If you need the beach, it's a 3 hour drive to salt water.) Lake Norman is our largest lake. It was built in the 1950s by Duke Power to run the nuclear power plant (McGuire Nuclear Station), and is our most popular and most populous lake. You'll still see the occasional fisherman at dawn, but the roar of jetskis and ski boats takes over as soon as it gets warm out. There's a competitive waterski team or three at the lake-watching them train is great fun!

If you're more interested in a quieter, more natural setting, you can head east to Badin Lake and Lake Tillery. They're connected by a dam (but you can't travel from one to the other). Both are bordered by the Uwharrie National Forest so there's a lot of preserved natural area that can never be developed. You'll still see ski boats and jet skis but will also see canoes and more bass boats.

Our newest water activities center around the National Whitewater Center which is positioned on the Catawba River near Mount Holly. This is the new home of the National Whitewater Foundation, and will be the host site for the Olympic whitewater training and trials. You can whitewater on the manmade trails, canoe, kayak, or just walk on the beautiful trails at the facility.

More than you'd imagine for a town with 5900 households! We have the established Harrisburg Park, where the annual Fourth of July festival takes place, adult flag football is played, childrens' soccer games are played, and where families congregate at the playground. We have two new parks under construction. One is on Pharr Mill Road and will be completed this summer. It will feature walking/running trails, a fishing pond, great playground areas and sand volleyball courts. The other new park is on Stallings Road and is scheduled to be an adult park with tennis courts and a running track.

Our local Harrisburg Youth Association sponsors baseball, softball, t-ball, soccer and basketball for all ages of children.
