Ivy Kessie with Rogers Healy and Associates has listed 5717 Penrose Avenue for $595,000.

Want the feel of a luxury home but at an entry-level price? This luxe Lower Greenville gem is just what the doctor ordered, literally. A little birdie told us it’s being sold by a wonderful physician, who loved raising his daughter here. We can see why. The three-bedroom, two-full-and-one-half-bathroom home is zoned for top rated Mockingbird Elementary, previously Stonewall Jackson. Even better? It’s updated for modern luxury living, indoors and out.

Over $70K In Upgrades

According to listing agent Ivy Kessie with Rogers Healy and Associates, “The owners spent over $70,000 on the home since they purchased it four years ago, including brand new HVAC, roof, siding, garage doors, and more.”
