Nestled in a private feeling in town neighborhood, surrounded by mountain laurel and rhododendron, you’ll find this adorable mountain cottage with modern updates. Built in 1935, this home is full of Highlands character and charm, with original hardwood flooring, shiplap accent walls, and finished attic. Snuggle up with the comforts of a wood stove crackling peacefully. This charming home features a tin roof and cedar shake siding that has been recently re-stained along with fresh paint on all the exterior trim. The kitchen has been updated with porcelain tile flooring as well as new appliances (2016), and cabinet hardware. This home features one full bathroom and two bedrooms, which make this a great starter home or vacation rental, especially with its proximity to Main St.! It has plenty of room for storage under home. There is a large deck overlooking a fenced back yard, with a trickling mountain creek running through the back of the property. A very private location, quiet, peaceful and secluded, this cottage is VERY conveniently located from downtown Highlands!
