There is a home for sale in Highlands Springs and Falls that will have you doubting your proximity to town. While only minutes from downtown Highlands, this area is peaceful, without the hustle and bustle of town during peak tourist season. The grounds are so inviting that you forget as you go down the drive you are looking for the house. My initial thought was, “Where’s my picnic basket?” The landscaping blends beautifully with nature. I park next to the enclosed double garage and make my way down the walk to the main entrance of the home.
Entering the foyer with gleaming wood floors, I see a formal dining room to my right and a generously sized living room to my left. I opt to go upstairs first, where I find a large master suite with his and her closets. There are also 3 guest rooms and guest bath. There is a bonus room over the garage that lends itself to all sorts of possibilities.
Back downstairs, I find a den with a gas stove for those chilly evenings. (The wood burning fireplace has been rocked in, but could be opened back up if new owners prefer a wood fire.) The kitchen has beautiful granite counters and lots of cabinets plus a pantry for storage. The breakfast nook has bay windows that look out over the spacious back yard.
Back yard? Uh oh, I’m thinking again of the picnic basket. Out I go to explore! The large back deck is itself a great outdoor space, but down the steps is one of the nicest yards I’ve seen. There is flat, yes flat, back yard! In my mind’s eye, I see my grandchildren playing croquet, badminton, or football. There is the sound of water running in the stream and the lush foliage around the pond. “Oasis” is the word that comes to mind. A lovely little building (think potting shed, storage, a little girl’s playhouse) is tucked into the rhododendron. Talk about spectacular when in bloom!
