One of my favorite neighborhoods here in Greensboro is Kirkwood. Kirkwood is a historic neighborhood in central Greensboro that borders the Old Irving Park neighborhood. It is a highly desirable neighborhood featuring cozy homes with top quality construction, low maintenance exteriors and fully landscaped yards. There are approximately 300 homes in the neighborhood, dating back to the 1940s.
Kirkwood Park is a 4.4 acre park run by the city with playground equipment, a natural area and basketball courts. The neighborhood is only minutes from downtown Greensboro and Friendly Center yet it maintains its quiet, quaint character. The prestigious Greensboro Country Club is within walking distance. Kirkwood has a Friends of Kirkwood community organization that sponsors neighborhood events and a neighborhood watch program. Kirkwood is famous for its Fourth of July parade, when children and adults are invited to decorate their bicycles and trikes in patriotic colors and ride them through the neighborhood.
Each month, a report with Kirkwood real estate information is posted on www.KirkwoodHouseValue.com. The report includes homes listed for sale, homes under contract and homes that have been sold year-to-date. It also has a link so Kirkwood homeowners can receive via email a detailed report on what their homes are worth. Be sure to check it out often to find out what is going on in Starmount. It also features links to market reports for other neighborhoods, such as Guilford Hills, Lindley Park, Starmount and Sunset Hills, as well as the latest real estate information on the entire city of Greensboro, NC.
