Home search in Hattiesburg, Petal, and Oak Grove

In this week's blog post, we are rounding up some of the best neighborhoods-in our opinion- in the Hattiesburg area. From Petal to Hattiesburg to Oak Grove, we will be sharing what we think brings out the best in these six subdivisions and why you should consider moving and joining the fun.

Longleaf Acres is an excellent subdivision in Petal to call home. There are smaller subdivisions that help make up this large area, including Marshall Place, Northfork, and Southfork. It is on the outskirts of Petal, meaning that it's peaceful and out of the way from heavy traffic. The subdivision is not so far out of the way, with only a 10-minute commute into Petal and only 15 minutes to Hattiesburg. This area is known to be out in the county. It has one lake that is only allowed for fishing. The average property size in this subdivision is around 1 acre per lot, giving you and your family plenty of room to hang out and play. Another great subdivision in Petal is Trailwood.

Trailwood is a large subdivision in the Petal area with two extensions: The Willows and Trailwood West. The subdivision is one large lake and two smaller ones. These subdivisions are more of custom-built homes, so there are not many cookie-cutter styles. Trailwood has easy access to the Evelyn Gandy Parkway and a few of the schools. They are in the city limits, so you must consider the taxes when purchasing a home in this location. Another development that is a great location is Timberton in Hattiesburg.

Timberton is a subdivision located right off Highway 11 with easy access to Highway 98 and Highway 49. This premier subdivision has the best of the best golf courses in the area. The houses here are custom-built and perfect for the family that is looking for something completely different. This subdivision also has another phase called Lake View that is seated between Brittany's Pond and the Club House Lake. Timberton is also near Forrest General and nestled between the two universities in town, The University of Southern Mississippi and William Carey. On the other side of Hattiesburg, there is a beautiful subdivision, Shadow Ridge.

Shadow Ridge is another golf community that is in the center of Hattiesburg, Mississippi. This neighborhood is placed within the Hattiesburg city limits and filled with custom-built homes. It is five minutes from Turtle Creek Mall and other strip malls, making it the perfect location for shopping and dining. This location is also great because you are surrounded by 500 acres of tall pines, beautiful magnolias, and luscious dogwood trees even though you are within the city limits. The golf course is 18- holes that are great for a variety of skill-level golfers.

Lake Serene sits on five lakes, making it the best for aquatic activities. It is also in a great location to the Oak Grove school and shopping in Hattiesburg. The people who live in this area are a part of the Lamar County School District, one of the area's largest school districts. This development is custom-built homes, and the plot of land tends to be larger than some subdivisions. A little further down the road is a subdivision known as Canebrake.

Canebrake is a trendy area to live in Oak Grove. It is a little further out of the way in Oak Grove but is very lovely. They have a members-only country club with a well-developed 18-hole golf course, a spa, fitness center, and indoor and outdoor dining venues. With an over 250-acre lake, this is also an excellent spot for aquatic activities that can include the whole family. Shopping and other activities are only about 15 minutes away.

These subdivisions that make up this community are vital. They are where our members get to call home and feel safe. They are where the best memories are made and are the heartbeat of the area. No matter what subdivision you decide to call home you are part of something great.
