- The location just can’t be beat. These neighborhoods are ideally located and commute times are short to Fort Bragg, downtown, and many of the popular shopping and restaurant areas.
- The Terry Sanford School District remains a very popular choice with parents and children. A strong academic performance and a very successful athletic program make this school district notable state-wide.
- Property values remain strong, even in a depressed market. During the recent strong real estate market, these homes appreciated very well; in the current weak market, they are holding their value more than others.
- These are established neighborhoods, they are the heart of Fayetteville. They have enjoyed a reputation as some of Fayetteville’s premier communities.
I live in this area, and I chose it for many of the reasons I’ve listed. But, what I like best about living in Haymount (or VanStory Hills, in my case) is how easy it is to enjoy the simple pleasures of living here.
This morning, after a walk through the neighborhood, my family and I piled in the car, drove 5 minutes to downtown, and went to the Farmer’s Market. Our favorite vendors are always there. Mr Lamar always has fresh eggs for us and the sweet potatoes my girls love so much. The Hale Family Farm, where we buy our free-range organic chickens always have such a pretty display.
Our take this morning? Farm fresh eggs and grape tomatoes. Baby eggplant. Whole wheat and honey whole wheat bread. Fresh honey and chocolate zucchini brownies.
No pictures of the brownies–here’s all that’s left.
The Fayetteville Farmer’s Market is open on Saturday morning. It is located at 131 Gillespie Street in the parking lot of the County Courthouse, directly across from the corner of Franklin and Gillespie. On Wednesday afternoon, it is located behind the AIT Building on Maiden Lane.
