    I won’t attempt to answer that, but will point out that what is “in the country” now may not be “in the country” in the foreseeable future.

    Depending on what you want of course here are some areas to consider:

    Whitebridge Subdivision – (Between Hampstead & Wilmington HWY 17) If you want multiple acreage in a subdivision. (High End – 3-10 acre estates, horses are welcome in this community)

    Sidbury Road – This area is very close to Wilmington: however the road is primarily surrounding by horse farms. Good schools, shopping & employment are proximate.

    Other areas with a country feeling are areas around Burgaw and Castle Hayne. (10-20 mins to Wilmington)

    If you are looking for that Mayberry feeling you should also check out the Penderlea community. (35-30 mins to Wilmington)

    These are just a few of the many areas surrounding Wilmington that may have what you are looking for.
