Highlands house description

Upon arrival, take a stroll down 4th and Main street to visit the many upscale shops and restaurants that some call an adult Disney World. Eight gourmet restaurants are within easy walking distance from 2-4 blocks away, so make your reservations. Drink some wine with your dinner and walk, not drive, back to your residence. Or grill some steaks on the Green Egg in the back yard while relaxing on the back porch by the fire. No mosquitoes will be found at this elevation of 4000 ft. Escape the heat in the summer with average morning lows 58-62 and highs mid 70s degrees in July. Cool crisp mornings in spring and fall warming to the 60s by midday beckon one to hike the many trails on the plateau and mountains. Our home is located at the start of the Satulah Mountain hike. Star gazing at night is a must to see the Milky way with minimal light pollution in Highlands. Stroll one block to visit The Ugly Dog Pub and listen to live bluegrass music with the national champion banjo player on Wednesday. Or Saturday, listen to one of the many guest rock'n roll bands. Take a relaxation day at this award winning spa by booking a massage, manicure, pedicure, or facial. Order lunch and receive the best farm to table fare in the mountains from the award winning Madisons restaurant. Good weather here urges one to the outdoors. One can take long walks through town with little elevation change or hike the many trails in our Nantahala national forest. Visit the many waterfalls in the area or do some swimming at our natural water slide at little sliding rock just 20 minutes away. Book a rafting trip on the Chattooga River just a 1 hour drive away. It boasts class 3.4 and 5 rapids. Rent a pontoon boat on Lake Glenville for a more relaxing water experience on this gorgeous mountain lake just 25 minutes away. Fly fishing amongst the numerous mountain streams is perfect for the avid fisherman. At night dine at one of our 10 gourmet restaurants. All serve farm to table fare. 8 of these restaurants are an easy walk. After dinner, take in a live play at one of our two playhouses that are in walking distance or simply relax by the fire at our home inside or outside. Our home, completed in 2009, and bought by us in 2010 was furnished and decorated by us for casual comfort and relaxation. It has provided us a retreat from the daily grind of life. We hope it will do the same for you.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: Mark and I grew up in Baton Rouge La, and met while attending LSU. Love at first date, we married after graduation. We now have 2 grown children, Mark Jr and Matthew. We first came to the Highlands area to visit friends in 2006, and we fell in love with the town and the people. I love to hike, attend fitness classes, church, eat out, shop, and play golf. My husband Mark loves the golf course, swims laps, lift weights in the fitness center, eat out, and go for long walks with me. He loves to take naps on the back porch couch in the late afternoon while watching the golf channel.

                  Why the Owner Chose Highlands:
                  We wanted to be in town and we loved Old Edwards Inn, so we made a leap of faith in 2010 to buy our new home before we sold our house in Highlands with the view. We are so glad we did. A view is nice, but a person can stare at the view only for so long. There is so much to do and see. We are located in the perfect spot, we live in a luxurious comfortable home. We walk everywhere from our home to grocery store, Ugly Dog Pub, restaurants, shopping, and church on Sunday. The property is meticulously maintained by Tate landscaping who maintains all the gardens and lawns of Old Edwards Inn and Spa. The weather here in Highlands is the coolest temperature anywhere at this latitude because of the elevation and because we live in a rain forest. Everything is green and lush in the summer. The fall color change is spectacular. We have spent white Christmases here together with family, and the town reminds me of a Charles Dickens story during the holidays.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  'If you can't be happy in Highlands, you just can't be happy' is a quote often used. The people, the scenery, the weather, the southern culture, the golf courses, the food are all the best.
