Development of the Westbrooke area began in 1970 but was not complete until 2009—so the homes reflect a variety of styles covering several decades. The initial development was outside the city limits and served by a community water system When Westbrooke was annexed and city water and sewer was provided to the area, however, the remainder of the land area was quickly filled with new homes. Most homes are single story and built on generously sized lots; and all homes are within walking distance to Arthur Edwards Elementary School.
Located in the western half of Havelock, Westbrooke is in the school district for Arthur Edwards Elementary School, Tucker Creek Middle School and Havelock High School. Progress Energy provides power and the city provides water, sewer and trash service as well as police and fire protection. The local Walmart is across the road from the subdivision; so for those of you who are frequent shoppers there, this is the neighborhood for you.
The geography of the neighborhood is largely level with stately, mature trees throughout. In some parts of the area, small forested ravines create a natural privacy barrier between the rear yards of homes on parallel streets. One edge of the subdivision abuts MCAS Cherry Point at the location of Staff NCO housing. Westbrooke is a popular and established neighborhood of moderately priced homes. When you’re ready to purchase a home in Havelock, Westbrooke is worth your consideration.
