The farm vs. the estates
Would you rather live on a farm or an estate? Citizens of Winston-Salem can choose between Greenbriar Estates and Greenbriar Farm. The blog has visited both recently. The "farm" is larger and definitely upscale relative to the "estates," but it still seems that a developer might have wanted to avoid the potential for confusion. The blog would further like to note that both developers were creative spellers (a greenbrier is a real thing - the prickly woody vine commonly seen in the woods in the eastern US - it's unlikely that any actual greenbriers would be tolerated on either the farm or the estates). For the record, Google Maps adheres to the dictionary spelling (and therefore does not match the signage at Greenbriar Farm).
