Highlands Country Cottage

Highlands Country Cottage is on the market for the very first time since it was lovingly built by the current owners. Conveniently located less than three miles from the heart of Highlands on an oasis of ten acres of a parklike setting with a pond, firepit, chicken coop, garden areas, two outbuildings and a poured foundation for a guest house or garage. The builder husband personally customized the home and the talented wife filled it with fabulous furnishings! The perfect dream team owners. A quiet neutral setting maintains the tasteful simplicity of the home. The owner describes her style of decorating as traditionally eclectic with a unique and modern flare. The primary bedroom and a second guest suite on the main level affords one-level living. The cottage chic kitchen is adorable with an engraved chandelier and jewelry style backsplash. The upstairs level is home to a second great room and two guest suites which are a haven for casual sentimentalists. The furnishings and accessories were collected slowly for a perfect retreat to relax and entertain. For anyone lucky enough to have a wraparound porch, this one plays up to the architecture with a custom rope window, antique furnishings with room for a full-size dining table and two sitting areas for weekend gatherings. Enough about the chic cottage. Let's focus on the ten acres with a pond, outbuilding, workshop, firepit, chicken coop and lots of flat lawn area for romping and rolling. It is very difficult to find this type of property only a few miles to Highlands.

Highlands, North Carolina

The Highlands Plateau of Western North Carolina is an oasis of incredible beauty at 4,118 feet above sea level. Often referred to as the Land of Waterfalls, the area boasts abundant rainfall and unique geology, which creates some of the most spectacular cascades in the South. Rich forests of hemlock and white pine, with thick undergrowth of azalea, rhododendron, and laurel, are almost everywhere. This beautiful area of rugged mountains is part of the Blue Ridge mountain range with 70% of the land preserved as National Forest. With its quaint, scenic setting, the Highlands and Cashiers area is unique. Small in size, the area has all the major attributes of a large city. There is outstanding shopping, a regional arts center called The Bascom, art galleries, five-star restaurants, The Old Edwards Inn and Spa, rated as one of the best hotel spas in the country by Conde Nast, libraries, and a new, modern hospital. The area is surrounded by National and State forests with numerous trails, waterfalls, and scenic lakes where native and stocked trout are fished by locals and boasts some of the finest trout fishing in America.
