It is not often that a home with this much character and a great mountain view is on the market for under $1M in a prominent neighborhood in Highlands. Located on the Atlanta side of Highlands close to Highlands Country Club and just a few miles to Main Street, this home in Highgate was sited for privacy and to take advantage of the beautiful mountain view and is adjacent to National Forest Land. The oversized custom front door speaks to the special mountain styling from the moment you enter. High wood ceilings and gleaming hardwood floors set off the horizontal wood walls and antique beams. The floor to ceiling wood burning stone fireplace is the focal point of the living room which opens to a large covered deck with a gas log fireplace. This is the perfect spot for entertaining friends or enjoying a quiet moment in the morning with coffee and a good book. The master suite boasts a fabulous bath with his and her vanities, a large tile shower and a soaking tub. Upstairs are two delightful guest suites. If you like to get out to walk, the roads in Highgate are quiet and easy to traverse and it is not uncommon to encounter our mountain wildlife. And when evening comes and it is time enjoy dinner or theater in Highlands, it is nice to know you are less than ten minutes to great restaurants, the auction house playhouse or performing arts center.
