Hello,

I'm looking to move to Greenville and have found homes I like in Lynndale, Westhaven, Southhall, Tucker Estates and Ironwood. I'd like to be close to the hospital, convenient to groceries/shopping etc, in a good neighborhood for walking/running and a good place to raise kids. What do you all think of these areas? Thanks in advance!

My choice would by Lynndale, personally. Nice homes and lots of trees...plus it is close to a lot of shopping and restaurants. Honestly though, all of the neighborhoods you listed are nice, and with the exception of Ironwood, close to stores.

Thanks! Is there anything I should consider with traffic for the commute to the hospital?

I would think Ironwood would have the easiest commute just because you would be coming to the hospital from a different direction with less traffic. Most of the neighborhoods you mentioned would be a 15-20 minute commute depending on traffic.

Thanks a lot. Out of the other neighborhoods, is it all pretty much the same? I like the Westhaven house, but the real estate agent keeps steering me towards Lynndale.... I wonder why that is - do you know? I figure there might be some reason?

I like Ironwood the most out of the ones you mentioned, but I like being a little out of town (and for you, the commute would be the shortest).

But I think you should look in the Eastern Pines area and buy my house.

(as much as I'd love to get it sold quick, it's another 10 minutes farther than any of the other areas to the hospital).

Lynndale is one of the more established neighborhoods in the area and I would imagine it is a desirable location...good for resale. Otherwise, I don't know of any particular reason to not choose Westhaven specifically.

Is Eastern Pines on the lake? I saw a house there with a beautiful view!

There are small lakes in the Eastern Pines area...most other water front in that area would be on the Tar River.

It was on one of those lakes. It was too far for our purposes, but the view of the lake was lovely. I appreciate all of the help!
