Highlands apartment description

Secluded but not remote, just 2.6 miles from Main St. Highlands.EXTRA NICE & CLEAN, very private upstairs Coach House apartment. Like new, built in 2008 . Full kitchen including dish washer, new king size bed (Westin Hotel Heavenly Bed). Spacious ,light and airy with windows on 4 sides. Located in beautiful and well groomed Falling Waters community. Nice walking neighborhood, very little traffic, mostly easy terrain..go up to Hide Away Hill if you like more challenge or walk down to the bottom of the falls if you want burning buns. Stop at the little creek-side park and and watch the brook go by. There are lots of birds, wild flowers and little critters around.

                      About the owner: We came to the Highlands area in 1996 from Palm Beach County Florida after retiring (Show & Sell publications).

We attend Community Bible Church, (one of the highlights of the area) where Paula sings in the choir. We keep busy taking care of the development...mowing, blowing leaves, weed wacking, planting flowers etc. We like to take short trips in our 5th wheel when we can.

                      Why the Owner Chose Highlands:
                      Great location, Just 2.8 miles from downtown Highlands gentle land good for walking, building..waterfalls and creeks. We have 35 acres for sale if you would like to join us, carve out your parcel .75 acres to 10+ acres choose from Waterfall view, Creek front or multi acre Private Estate...great prices too.
