Owner info

Year Purchased: 1940

About the owner: I grew up in Albany, GA as a young girl but fell in love with Highlands, NC through traveling to this home when it was owned by my grandmother, Minnie Lee. As a young girl we traveled to Highlands several times a year to vacation. Since those days, the house has been passed through my mother and now on to me and my brothers and sisters. The house has been in our family for nearly 50 years. I now reside in Birmingham, AL and teach high school drama.

Why the Owner Chose Highlands, NC, USA:
This house is very special to me since it was originally purchased by my grandmother, Minnie Lee. After my grandmother passed, the house was left to my mother, Elizabeth Loosier. My mother passed away a few years ago and now the house is owned by me and my siblings. It is a very dear place to us and we look forward to sharing the beauty of this home with visitors for years to come.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is a short 5 minute drive to downtown Highlands. It is conveniently located to waterfalls, shopping, and many other area attractions.
