Town is about a 10-15 minute trip, so you get used to buying groceries once a week. There is a country store that is a couple blocks away for those times you need to purchase things like milk, eggs, fuel, ice, or hotdog/hamburger buns for a BBQ.
Nearly all of the houses are on at least half acre lots, which makes a nice comfortable space between each house. The spacious amount of land is great for those interested in having a cool workshop, or whatever you may desire. We lived here since 1999, and our children attended the Greenwood school. It has a much better reputation than the public schools in Midland ISD. The school district does not tolerate gangs, drugs, and disrespectful behavior. If children are out of line, they are kicked out of the school district where they can go to the Midland Schools. It has an excellent family type atmosphere, and the kids are able to see their friends as they progress through the grades.
The home itself does well with energy efficiency. It is totally electric, so that is a little different than most in town. The AC/Furnace are in good order, and were completely replaced with a top quality Lennox brand system in 2003. It gets powerfully warm during the summer here, so a strong AC system is a necessity. Ceiling fans in all the rooms are another nice feature when living in the desert. The water for the home is supplied through a local Greenwood water system. It works similar to what one would have in town. The house has a new twin concrete tank septic system and drain field, which will last several decades.
There is a wood burning fireplace that is used more for atmosphere, but we never used it to provide an additional source of heat. The two bathrooms are newly remodeled and look great. The carpeting in the bedrooms, hallway, and living room were removed. Presently those rooms have just the concrete floors. We purposely left them this way so the new buyer could install whatever type of flooring they like. The back patio was enclosed by a previous owner, and it is incomplete. It is not heated or cooled; therefore it is not considered part of the square footage. We used the room for storage.
My familly and I really enjoyed this house. Even though we moved to a neighboring city, it took a long time to find another neighborhood that was similar to that of the one in Greenwood.
