Highlands’ Little Piece of Paradise

by Luke Osteen

Tucked away in an acre of mature trees and a lush, green backyard is this adorable, furnished two-story home within minutes to Main Street.

A large benched deck with a pergola-shaded entrance, white picket fence, red shutters, French doors, and a cultured stone two-story chimney enhance this charming New Orleans-style cottage with lovely antiques.

In the background, you can hear the sounds of water rippling over the slick stones of Glen Falls. It drowns out any road noise on the Dillard or Glen Falls roads. It’s easy to imagine pets romping in the grass while family badminton or croquet games are in full swing. The more adventurous can wander through an arbor entrance to a trail cleared to a site for a dedicated bench view of a spectacular waterfall.

Walking onto the back deck leads to a side door entrance to the upstairs bedrooms and full bath and full-sized washer/dryer combo. The stair landing makes a suitable office area with wood flooring and upstairs windows in three directions.

“I’ve been connected to this home in different capacities as a realtor for 20 years,” says Real Estate Broker Barbara Newton. “The owner has made many upgrades as the needs arose. It now boasts 2015 A/C units, a 2017 white water and ice dispenser, side by side refrigerator/freezer, 2018 new metal roof, and 2019 screened French doors.”

This home has a great rental history from weekends to three years’ long, and can serve as a wonderfully affordable year-round residence. It’s being offered at $285,000.
