Greenwood Acres is a small, older neighborhood situated just off Walnut Street in Cary, conveniently located between Cary Towne Center, Crossroads shopping centers, 140, and US1. Greenwood Acres is made up of older single family homes on large, wooded lots (most 1/3 to 1/2 acre but some over an acre!) Most homes were built from the late 50s through 70s and range from ranch styles to split levels with two stories. However, there are several homes that were built in more recent years (the late 90s to early 2000s) on lots which had previously been empty. Some of the homes have gone through extensive renovations, both to add square footage and to update to more modern architectural styles. Square footage of the homes in this neighborhood ranges from 1400 to 3500, with most homes having around 2000 to 2400. There is no HOA or required fees for homeowners. Prices range from the high 200s to mid 300s, though there a couple homes that range from low 400s as well. You enter the neighborhood on Greenwood Circle, just next to the Walnut Street Park.
The homes are neatly tucked back from the road, allowing homeowners to enjoy privacy along with gorgeous, shaded, and large front and back yards. There are several paved walking paths that take you to the beautiful Walnut Street Park that consists of a large open area, play structures on padded surfaces, bathrooms, picnic tables, and water fountains for people and dogs. There is also direct access to Cary’s Greenway system via the public access at the end of Greenwood Circle.
