Greensboro Home Inspector

Greensboro is situated among gently rolling hills of North Carolina's Piedmont and is  midway between the Blue Ridge and Great Smoky mountains to the west and the Atlantic beaches to the east. The view of the city from its highest building, the Lincoln Financial tower, reveals that the town is populated with large numbers of green trees, lending perhaps another dimension of significance to its name. The city is near major freeways, with Interstates 40, 85.

Greensboro's earliest neighborhood was College Hill, which is now the area of Greensboro College.

Southside is among the oldest neighborhoods in the city and is now experiencing redevelopment.

The Aycock  neighborhood was established in 1895. The neighborhood features large Queen Anne residences of the turn-of-the-twentieth century, as well as Foursquare, Craftsman, and Colonial Revival styles.

Irving Park, developed in 1911 around the golf course of the Greensboro Country Club, was modelled on nearby Pinehurst. The prestigious neighborhood includes large homes on ample lots, and still remains popular.

The urbanization of Greensboro during the early twentieth century was influenced greatly by the popularity of the automobile, which enabled citizens to live farther from the city center in more suburban surroundings. A series of "streetcar suburbs" were established, including Glenwood, Hamilton Lakes, Lake Daniel, Latham Park, Lindley Park, O. Henry Oaks, Rankin, Starmount, Sunset Hills and Westerwood. Many of these neighborhoods include some of the city's finest public parks. Recent neighborhood additions include sprawling large-scale planned unit developments such as Adams Farm, Lake Jeanette, The Cardinal, New Irving Park, and Reedy Fork Ranch.
