Welcome to Holland
Small neighborhood off the beaten path
Nestled within Springfield Township, Holland is a small village of just 16,000 residents who enjoy the quiet trappings of a true suburban neighborhood. Well-kept grassy lawns and gardens adorn the homes, which rest on oak-shaded streets on quaint cul-de-sacs. Holland is close to I-475 and has quick access to the shopping and commercial districts of Springfield Township and nearby Toledo. The neighborhood is also adjacent to several parks, country clubs, and preserves.
Although the area’s European settlement history dates back into the 1860s, houses in this residential neighborhood are mostly new-builds that emanate a classic, American Dream aesthetic. Backyard pools and white picket fences are just a few of the accouterments of these lovely, affordable homes, and the prices range from modest to over half a million. The population of young families and professionals—who have the convenience of living 20 minutes from Toledo—have their pick from cozy three-bedroom ranches and luxury single-family newbuilds with waterfront views.
