is a peaceful residential community just outside of Aberdeen on US Hwy 1. As
the name implies, the entire community is laden with gorgeous pine trees and
has remained primarily a residential community, since it's inception by John
Patrick in 1884. Although John, North Carolina's first Commissioner of
Immigration at the time, promoted Pinebluff in much the same manner that
made Southern Pines blossom, several hotel fires in the area, during the early
years, put a damper on it's commercial development.
With an area so thick in Pines and kindling, the
that were built from the timber initially, were prone to catch fire with the
tiniest spark. Pinebluff has a town hall for government offices, a library,
and a fire department, as well as a few local businesses.
If you're looking for the perfect residential area that's quiet and out of the hustle and
bustle of town business, then this is the place. The natural beauty that has
made Pinebluff a favorite of many locals, remains as unspoiled today as it
was in the late 1800's.
Pinebluff's big lot sizes, heavily pine treed landscape and residential nature
it a fantastic choice for those looking to get away from the hustle and
bustle of the commercial side of the Sandhills. Lots are typically at least
1/2 and acre and the landscape is some of the most gorgeous property in the
The landscape is also peppered with ponds and watering
holes, the biggest of which, Pinebluff Lake, served early on as the town's
water supply. People still fish, swim and hang out at Pinebluff Lake today.
Pinebluff's two original churches, Pinebluff United
Methodist, at 275 East Philadelphia Avenue, and Ives Memorial Baptist
church, at 365 East Philadelphia Avenue, still remain today. The look of
Ives Memorial has changed a little over the years.
The east/west avenues here,
much like Southern Pines, are named for areas where John Patrick hoped to
attract settlers from, like Boston, Philadelphia and New England. This
community is also a nice outlying area compliment because it allows
landowners and residents to be just outside of Aberdeen, but still have the
convenience of being at any store in town within 5 - 10 minutes.
Here, as in
prices are typically more affordable than you
may find in Pinehurst or
Southern Pines, but
you typically get a better lot or more land for the dollar that you spend.
And it feels like a getaway. Keep the beautiful pines in place, and the only
maintenace you have is raking pinestraw off the roof from time to time. The
soft longleaf needles will hold down and prevent weeds from sprouting, while
it blankets the areas surrounding your home.
Pinebluff has a
population of around 1500 residents and kids attend Aberdeen area schools.
Average home sales here float around $150K for pre-existing and around $190K
for new construction. Farms and homes with acreage of course will be
considerably more depending on property, amount of acreage and location
within the community.
