About Laird Memory Bunting

We (Laird&Matt) have been coming to the highlands for over 15 years. Being Atlanta residents we love the cool weather and laid back attitude of the Mountains.

Laird Memory Bunting purchased this house in 2015

Why Laird Memory Bunting chose Highlands

We walked by this property for years and always thought it would be the perfect place to build a home. It is on a lake (really a large pond...), has amazing views of the mountains and is only one block from Main Street and Old Ewards Inn! It really has it all. We never would have imagined we'd be able to acquire the property, and when we did we set out on a two year journey to design and build a perfect place for extended families to gather.

What makes this house unique

We love that we can park our cars for the weekend and just relax. We can look at the lake and the mountains and then walk to Main street in a less than a minute. We designed the house so that two families could each have two bedrooms and a bath and then a couple could stay up in the master bedroom. Everyone gets an equally great place to stay.

Great house for a large family to be together

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious and well designed for a large group. I loved the large kitchen with great room, plus the downstairs suites and second living room. We had to draw straws for the beautiful master bedroom, everyone wanted it. Great location close to town. I highly recommend this beautiful home.

Great place for a group

  • 5 of 5

A group of 7 stayed at Matt and Laird's for a wedding and the house was perfect. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep. In addition, the house is situated within steps of main street. Would absolutely recommend for anyone visiting the Highlands!

Even better than we had hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious, light filled easy to live in house, five minutes from the heart of Highland.

Five adults and two toddlers spent four wonderful days there. Comfortable furniture, fully equipped kitchen, wonderful porch, two living rooms for spreading out.....Can't recommend it highly enough. We're pretty choosy folks, and don't give compliments easily, but we are delighted we made the choice to stay here and the compliments are sincere! Jamie
