Raborn Pointe offers close community
Driving along Five Notch Road, it would be easy to miss a subdivision called Raborn Pointe, and residents who live there may be happy about that.
The entrance on Raborn Court is directly across from the Green Forest Drive entrance of Knollwood.
Currently there are 26 single-family lots on 15.36 acres in Raborn Pointe, which was developed by Ernest Long Jr. in 1992.
The homes are a mixture of foundation and slab construction with a variety of materials used for the facades - wood, vinyl, brick, etc.
Lloydette and Al Young Jr. have lived in Raborn Pointe almost from its beginning.
Dr. Young said she and her family have been in the subdivision for nine years.
"We were drawn to the neighborhood because we like the community," she said.
Young acknowledged Raborn Pointe is a "great place to raise children." She commented the schools are wonderful (Hammond Hill, Paul Knox and North Augusta High), and "the opportunities to participate in recreational activities are outstanding."
An attractive feature to Raborn Pointe, said Young, is its convenience to shopping centers and the Greeneway.
"Yet," commented the neighborhood resident, "we still have the small community feel."
Young also said her family would continue to live in Raborn Pointe because of its location and its "great family-oriented community."
And while the neighborhood doesn't have a homeowners' association, Young said, "however, we, as neighbors, usually look out for one another."
