Albemarle, North Carolina Homes for Sale

Albemarle, North Carolina
Albemarle, North Carolina
Four hundred years of North Carolina history can be found in the heart of a friendly community known as Albemarle.

The land this town is built on is awash in its rich heritage and has played a key role in major events throughout American History, from the first exploration by English colonists in the late 1500s to invasions from the north during the Civil War three centuries years later. Many homes built decades before the Revolutionary War still stand today, along with an ancient high school, an opera house and a movie theater old enough to have shown silent films.

"There's much to admire in Albemarle, but there's also much to do. Farms and plantations are scattered throughout the countryside, and the abundant waters of Albemarle Sound and its unspoiled rivers welcome boaters and fishermen. And residents of the town take pride in their heritage..."

Despite its somewhat chaotic history, Albemarle, officially incorporated as a town in 1857, now thrives as a peaceful haven, offering a relaxed lifestyle enjoyed by visitors and by those lucky enough to call it home.

One of North Carolina's safest communities, Albemarle is a perfect place to raise a family or to spend your retirement years. Children and adults alike enjoy the recreational activities offered by the area's many attractive parks, as well as the historically restored downtown. Albemarle also is an ideal spot for those who love the outdoors and appreciate magnificent views of the surrounding lakes, countryside and especially the age-old Uwharrie Mountain Range.

And if you ever tire of the peace and quiet of historic Albemarle, big cities such as Charlotte and Greensboro are nearby. There's much to admire in Albemarle, but there's also much to do. Farms and plantations are scattered throughout the countryside, and the abundant waters of Albemarle Sound and its unspoiled rivers welcome boaters and fishermen. And residents of the town take pride in their heritage and are warm and welcoming to visitors who pass through or who stay awhile to enjoy all this historic haven has to offer.
