620 Center Drive, Highlands, NC 28741  

The combination of close-to-town with a view is not easy to find, but just a three-minute drive to Main Street Highlands sits this spacious, open home--with a full-on view of Shortoff Mountain and many peaks beyond. In the quiet Little Bearpen neighborhood--just a short walk to the Greenway Trail--this home has had significant work to make it ready for a new owner. As is, it's a great house, but it offers a new owner significant potential for making it into a showplace. No doubt, this is a much-loved home--well-known as one of the most 'fun' and whimsical houses in Highlands. It invites creativity. On 1.67 acres (one and a half lots), it has great yard space--and a fabulous entertaining deck which takes full advantage of the view. The home has garage space for three cars and, as a huge bonus, a separate apartment with a re-done bath and kitchenette--and a spectacular view. There's workspace area in the crawlspace and plenty of storage. The master bedroom sits on one end of the house with guest areas on the other. The home has a tankless hot water heater, a new metal roof, a new dishwasher, a newly paved driveway--and following a thorough inspection, the owners have addressed maintenance issues which all houses require. Just minutes from all that Highlands has to offer: world-class dining, galleries, shops, theater and art--and the natural beauty of the mountains. Just two hours or so from Atlanta, Athens, or Greenville, this home sits at 4000 feet; on hot summer days, the temperature is often 10-15 degrees lower than towns just down the mountain. This is a lot of house for the money--one of the most unique homes in one of the most unique towns the Southeast. Definitely worth a look!
