North Carolina's Established, Wooded Carolina Trace Features Single Family Homes, Two Golf Courses, a Lake, a Marina, Tennis Courts and a Wide Range of Prices

Carolina Trace Country Club, located in the lush Sandhills of central North Carolina about half way between the Atlantic coast and the Blue Ridge Mountains, is not specifically a retirement community. Yet, thanks to its tranquil setting, country club amenities and ample recreational opportunities, it is popular with baby boomers and retirees.

This gated community was developed in the 1970s and spreads across nearly 2,500 rolling, wooded acres. There are 19 separate neighborhoods, and each one has its own characteristics. All homes, which come in all sorts of sizes and colors, sit next to a golf course, the lake or are tucked in the woods. Many residences were built 35 or 40 years ago. They are solid and sound but not all have up-to-date design features.

Current prices begin below $100,000 and top out in the $400,000s. Rental properties are available as well and start at around $1,100 per month. Please verify these prices with a Realtor as they may change.

Amenities include a 315-acre lake with seven miles of shoreline and a marina, two Robert Trent Jones-designed, 18 hole golf courses, a 30,000 square foot clubhouse, two dining rooms, a swimming pool, tennis courts and a host of activities, including card games, dances and holiday celebrations.

Homeowners choose from a variety of club membership levels, including full golf membership ($2,500 initiation fee and $438 per month), sports membership ($1,000 initiation fee and $180 per month) and dining membership ($250 initiation fee and $88 per month). These are 2017 prices for people age 50 or better. Military personnel receive a membership fee discount.

The town of Sanford is roughly 35 miles southwest of from Raleigh/Durham, so amenities not found locally are just up the road. Chapel Hill and the University of North Carolina are even closer, offering college classes, theater and workshops.

The local hospital is Central Carolina Hospital, and it is accredited by the Joint Commission.

This area of North Carolina has four seasons, although winters are generally mild. In the spring, the air is sweet with the scent of blooming flowers, and falls are simply spectacular. The average January temperature is 41 degrees, and in July, it can reach the low to mid-80s. Humidity is high.

North Carolina:

Sir Walter Raleigh sent English colonists to North Carolina in 1585 and 1587 to settle Roanoke Island. Permanent settlements were established in 1653, and early conflicts included pirate raids, the Quaker-led Cary Rebellion and the Tuscarora Indian War.

North Carolina didn't see much fighting during the American Revolution, but many residents went out of state to fight. A lot of locals were pro-Union and anti-slavery, but the state joined the Confederacy during the Civil War.

The state is the nation's largest tobacco producer, furniture maker and brick and textile manufacturer. Papermaking, chemicals, and metalworking are important to the state economy, too. Most lithium and mica come from here.

Tourists spend more than $1 billion in North Carolina annually. Sporting options include skiing, golfing and fishing. Major attractions include the Great Smoky Mountains, Cape Hatteras, the Blue Ridge National Parkway, the Wright Brothers memorial, Carl Sandburg's home, and an Old Salem re-creation in Winston-Salem. North Carolina's climate is warm and tropical most of the time, but it can be subject to fierce storms part of the
