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
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 . . . . .
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.
