Homes in the Woodscape Neighborhood
The Woodscape neighborhood is three subdivisions: Woodscape Glen, Woodscape Meadows, and Woodscape Green. Woodscape was originally developed by John Miller. The Glen portion has homes nestled in large trees with a back-to-nature feel. Predominantly built in the 1970s, these homes tend to have contemporary lines. This section of the neighborhood is heavily treed with fir trees so it has more of a cabin-in-the-woods type of feel to this section just like the first phase of Cambridge.
In the 1980s and 1990s, the subdivision expanded to include some larger homes. Streets lined with trees are characteristic of this neighborhood. While it doesn’t have the large canopy of the original development, this part of the subdivision is stunning in the fall as it doesn’t have the fir trees that dominate the older phase, but was planted with trees providing a variety of colors in the fall. The yards are larger as well and tend to be private as the foliage has grown over time.
The newest part of this subdivision is Woodscape Green. These homes are more densely built with much smaller lots. The neighborhood has a small park and the larger Wes Bennett Park which has a splash pad and playground equipment. The neighborhood sits just north of and around Pringle Elementary school as well. This section of the neighborhood is where one-story homes are generally found. Comfort Homes, Sunco and Banner are just a handful of the builders that helped to build out this section of homes. While it looks like there will be a new phase based on roads that are ready to go through, there isn’t a current plan for a new phase to Woodscape, but there will be more homes.
Home prices in Woodscape
Real estate in this neighborhood tends to be more expensive due to the nature of the neighborhood. Homes in the older part of Woodscape tend to be in the $400,000-$550,000 range, with homes in the other areas running in the $500,000-$750,000 price range.
One of the big draws of Woodscape is the school feeder system. Pringle Elementary is right next to the neighborhood and it feeds into Judson Middle School, and South High School. With the Pringle playground nearby, and the local Wes Bennett Park, which has a splash pad, this neighborhood is popular. There is no HOA within Woodscape and it belongs to the South Gateway neighborhood association within the city of Salem.
