Southern Pines

Knollwood & Boiling Springs

The Knollwood/Boiling Springs Neighborhood is a little closer to town and not to be confused with Knollwood Heights/Pine Needles.  Boiling Springs Rd is the main road through the community, so we’ve included in our description to make things a little easier.  Homes in Knollwood average in the around $200k and max out around 2,500 sq ft.  It’s a fantastic established neighborhood that’s popular with folks who want to be close to Downtown Southern Pines, but want a bigger yard and quieter streets – oh . . . . maybe for children or pets.   There are a few newer houses, but most of the homes were built in the 70’s and 80’s . . . .  and many of them have been nicely renovated.  Properties in Knollwood range from about $125k to a high around $300k.  For our money, there’s a lot of value in the neighborhood

What are the homes like?

Mostly, you see brick one story houses in Knollwood/Boiling Spgs – some with garages and some with carports.  The majority of homes are brick 3 Bedroom homes.  Of course, there are a few exceptions.   Usually, buyers choose to update homes after buying – not by going overboard but by updating kitchens and bathrooms.  Typically, moderate renovations of that type in the $15k – $25k range will result in dollar for dollar added value – sometimes more.  Knollwood is not the kind of neighborhood where you’d want to go crazy with a $100k renovation and expect to make your money back when you sell.  We’ll say this:  we have quite a few clients who are now living in $500K plus homes . . . . . and they started out in Knollwood.  We’re just sayin . . . . .

Why Knollwood & Boiling Springs?

Quiet streets without a lot of traffic.   Plus, Downtown Southern Pines with all of it’s quaintness is a short bike ride away!!  It’s either a long walk (10 – 15 min) or short bike ride to town!  The quaint downtown is a bonus – local shops, cool restaurants, live music, movies, festivals . . . . and much more.  Don’t forget about the town parks – a truly great system with 6 wonderful and very diverse parks.  Finally, Weymouth Woods Nature Preserve is almost in your backyard . . . . with miles of trails through 1,000 acres of protected pine forest.
