Briarwood is a charming neighborhood that was built on dairy farmland in the 1940s. This bedroom community originally featured cottages and smaller houses, but today the neighborhood also includes newer, larger homes. There’s a strong demand for properties within Briarwood, thanks to a renewed demand for neighborhoods with a strong family atmosphere, sense of community, and low crime rate. Briarwood is bordered by Lovers Lane, Inwood Road, and Elsby Avenue, and is in walking distance a host of restaurants, as well as Inwood Village, which features retail and the Inwood Theater. Dave Perry-Miller & Associates presents three must-see homes located within this close-knit community.
The three-bedroom home at 5022 Elsby Avenue was built in 1946 and has been updated throughout. This home features a welcoming floor plan, modern kitchen, split large master bedroom with walk-in closets, second living area that can be used as a dining area, and a beautifully landscaped backyard with pool.
Demonstrating the variety of the neighborhood is a newer, 4,574-square foot home. 4703 Elsby Avenue is a traditional home constructed in 2007 and features custom accents, open floor plan, abundant natural light, four bedrooms, three living areas, game room, and his and her garages. Directly behind the home is a park and playground.
Another large, traditional home in Briarwood is 4900 W. Stanford Avenue. With an open floor plan, four bedrooms, and gourmet kitchen, this home features many modern amenities. The large den overlooks the landscaped backyard, and all of the bedrooms have their own baths.
