A five-bedroom, European-style home near the heart of downtown Greenville has sold for $1.755 million.
Construction on the 4,488-square foot residence in the Woodland Park at Cleveland Forest subdivision was completed earlier this year. Tom Marchant of Marchant Real Estate was the listing agent, and also represented the buyer.
The custom-built home at 60 Woodland Way features 10-foot ceilings, multiple fireplaces, top-of-the-line appliances and an elevator shaft that can used for closets or the installation of an elevator. The residence includes exterior touches such as wrought-iron handrails, a large cupola over the back porch, and a fireplace with television hookups above the mantle.
Woodland Park is a 22-lot community in the Alta Vista area, near Cleveland Park, the Swamp Rabbit Trail and downtown Greenville. Lots in the development range from .219 to .386 acres and vary in price from $385,000 to $550,000. Croft Architecture of Greenville was retained to ensure quality controls for new home construction, with suggested styles including but not limited to Tudor, French Country, Colonial, Revival, Victorian and English Manor.
‘Inspired Cottage’ coming to Verdae
The 2021 edition of Milestone Custom Homes’ “Inspired Cottage” will be on display in the Hollingsworth Park neighborhood of Verdae, a master-planned community on Greenville’s Eastside.
The 2,470-square-foot “iCottage” is located at 138 Jessen Drive in the custom cottage community of Bella Grove, a traditional neighborhood in the 300-acre Hollingsworth Park development. Milestone Custom Homes created the Inspiration Home brand in 2009 to showcase elite building methods, captivating design, and innovative products at the forefront of the home building industry.
Features of the four-bedroom, four-bath cottage include timeless architectural lines, built-in flexibility with indoor/outdoor living, smart storage solutions, tall, light-maximizing windows and lofted ceilings, high-performance and energy efficient technologies, cohesive fixtures and state-of-the-art engineering. Coldwell Banker Caine will host open house weekends at the cottage June 17-20 and June 24-27.
This 2021 edition takes it a step further with a specific focus on health and wellness features born out of the past year’s experiences and challenges. The suite of air-improvement systems captures contaminants, pollutants, allergens, pollen, and more, to ensure the air that enters and is kept within the home is clean and healthy.
“After a year that brought so much intense focus to individual and collective health practices and during which we spent the majority of our time at home, it was a top priority for us to be able to showcase a home designed to promote an individual’s continuing physical, emotional, mental, and social ability to thrive within their environment,” said Jerry Fay, Milestone co-owner. “The iCottage represents the future of truly living well.”
