Realty Check: What $580,000 Gets You in Greenwood

A sleeping porch, a stocked pond, gorgeous gardens, and a private guest suite.

Just a 10-minute drive from Old Town, this 6,800-square-foot custom home affords the accessibility of the ’burbs with a serene setting unlike many of the other neighborhoods in Greenwood. “You have no idea you’re in a subdivision because it’s so tranquil,” owner Suzie Hollinger says. “We see heron and deer, so you feel like you’re in Brown County, but you have all the conveniences of the suburbs.” The six-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath abode perches on a corner lot that abuts gardens of butterfly bushes and a stocked pond draped in weeping willows—a view the new owners can enjoy while lounging in the gazebo or resting on the swing bed underneath the sleeping porch. “It’s very private,” Hollinger says. “You can go out in your jammies and no one knows.”

When the Hollingers built the home in 1993, they designed a circular floorplan with stately details like a sunken dining room highlighting a triple-tray ceiling, a spacious kitchen with Italian-tile floors, and a master suite with a gas fireplace and a 31-foot-long walk-through closet that leads from the bedroom to the laundry room. “Wherever we had the opportunity to add closets, we did,” Hollinger says. “You never hear a woman go into a house and say there are too many closets.”

The home is a peaceful retreat for guests in the summer. Visitors can take their pick between the 2,600-square-foot lower-level suite offering two bedrooms, a full kitchen, and a wine cellar, or two second-floor rooms with prime sunbathing spots on the adjoining teak-wood deck.
