About the Property

Settled on over 2 lush acres in the highly sought after Mirrormont neighborhood lies an amazing newly remodeled home. The house was situated perfectly for privacy, while being less than a 5 minute drive to downtown Highlands.

This mountain contemporary home has a wonderful open feel. Cathedral ceilings with rich wood beams add to the architecture and design, while the pecky cypress walls in the main living area and the large family room add to rustic warmth of the home. The main living area has an open flow, from the brand-new gourmet kitchen with stainless-steel KitchenAid appliances, new cabinetry and granite counter tops to the window lined dining and living room. Enhanced with gorgeous hardwood flooring and a large stacked-stone fireplace, this is a spectacular area for entertaining guests. Open the large glass door to the screened in porch that is perfect for outside dining or listening to the sounds of nature.

The main level also has a spacious den with a second fireplace as its focal point. This room is the perfect gathering spot for a relaxing family night, games or a movie. Skylights add to the brightness of the room and there is also access to the deck.

The master on the main level is spacious and is graced with hardwood flooring throughout. There is plenty of closet space and extra storage in both bathrooms. The lower level has two gracious guest suites and offers family and friends some privacy while visiting.

A mere two hour drive from the hustle and bustle of metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia; Asheville, North Carolina; and Greenville, South Carolina is the idyllic mountain town known as Highlands, North Carolina. At a pristine elevation of over 4,000 feet, this quiet rustic mountain community is located at the southern tip of the Blue Ridge Mountains and is surrounded by national Forest. It straddles the Eastern Continental Divide and still seems to the first time visitor like just a few steps from Heaven’s door.

This picture perfect mountain oasis, so reminiscent of a Norman Rockwell painting, had its humble beginning back in 1875, when as legend has it, two Kansas developers drew intersecting lines on a map from New York to New Orleans and from Chicago to Savannah. They theorized that the point where these lines met would one day be a great trade center and the hub of commerce. Fortunately, they missed their calculations by approximately 120 miles (Atlanta Georgia) and this rich and fertile mountain village was able to develop as a health and summer resort town on the highest plateau of the Southern Appalachian Mountains in Western North Carolina. The year round population of the Highlands area is about 4,500, but the summertime temperatures draw visitors from around the southeast who come to enjoy the cool days and brisk mountain evenings.

Unlike most resort towns, the majority of our summer visitors are also homeowners and the town has created a community of concerned citizens and cultural organizations with many diverse activities. This community atmosphere makes for an ideal relocation to Highlands. Within the four blocks of Main Street and adjacent streets that make up the center of town, Highlands is a delightful blend of country and city cultures. Rarely is it possible for such a small town to offer the array of services found in Highlands. Medical needs are met with a full-service hospital and a staff of general practitioners and specialists.

The cultural amenities include professional theatre, chamber music concerts, cabarets, art exhibits, galleries, a fine art center and other special events. A variety of educational classes and informative seminars are also available. Highlands gives you a range of choices and somehow manages to nurture your spirit at the same time.

For those who possess a more adventuresome spirit, nature is always calling and beckons you to spend time away from the harried cares of your world. Take a long walk or an invigorating hike to a nearby waterfall; go mountain biking or stroll the sidewalks of Main Street. There is championship golf, tennis, swimming, fly-fishing, boating, kayaking, canoeing, and even whitewater rafting in the rivers nearby. Spring, summer, fall and winter each of the seasons offers its own unique set of outdoor adventures that attract residents and visitors alike to revel in the magnificent splendors of the mountains.
