Architectural housing choices range from Colonial, Victorian, Georgian, and English Tudor to contemporary and modern. Many grand historic homes can be purchased at reasonable prices in the region. In Tarboro, Majestic Colonial, Antebellum and Victorian homes surround an eight-acre Town Common. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it is the only remaining planned town common in the United States, outside Boston. Patio homes, cluster homes, townhomes, and apartments are plentiful. And for those looking to live in a live, work, play environment, look no further. The Rocky Mount Mills provides luxury lofts nestled along the Tar River as well as historical mill cottages that have been renovated to have all modern amenities, even a kegerator in each cottage! What is most impressive about these neighborhoods, however, are the neighbors – warm, welcoming people eager to make you feel at home.
