That area is very nice, the golf course is one of the nicest public courses in the area. It also has two lakes that are stocked with fish. They have homes prices that vary from the low 200's to the 500,000 range.
As for your question about living on the outskirt of town, you need to look at what amenities are close to that location. How much driving are you going to have to do from living out there? If most of the everyday requirements are close then you will prob be happy with your choice. It also depends on how long you plan to live in that house. If you are going to sell quickly you need to think about the location in terms of what the masses would think, i.e. is it really to far for the average person to drive? If you are going to live in it for a while then just make sure you will be happy in it, it will not be the outskirts forever....
Hope this helps, good luck in your home search.
