The smaller sizes allow residents to enjoy maintenance-free, carefree living. Because it’s a land-lease community, Greenwood residents own their homes and pay an additional monthly fee for the land.

There’s plenty to do here, inside and out. The clubhouse features a great room, billiards, and a popular exercise room. In the warmer months, residents enjoy the outdoor pool and patio, tennis, bocce ball, ponds, trails, gazebo, and barbecue area.
