Two Lots -over 2.5 acres! The home lot is 1.04 Acres - the extra lot is 1.50 Acres. LIVE ON THE MOST COVETED STREET IN HIGHLANDS. When a well known designer and caterer own a property, you can just imagine the incredible dinner parties they threw. In their first weeks here 28 years ago, the owners nicknamed this property "Wild Winds" because of the unique breezes that often blow over the hillside in the evening especially in the fall and spring. Visitors have always marveled at these beautiful mountain top breezes from both the deck on the back of the home and on the expansive front porch entryway. This home is large enough to accommodate the entire family for holiday gatherings. The living room showcases the stone-clad wood-burning fireplace and beautiful beams on the ceiling. The area flows easily into the kitchen and dining areas and back out to the deck and views. This classic Highlands home has a split plan that captures the natural surroundings and is filled with bright sunlight. The future owners have the option to keep the yard natural and lush or trim a considerable view to several layers of mountain ranges including Shortoff Mountain and beyond. 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms (2 bathrooms are located in the master suite) all bedrooms have on-suite access to a bathroom. Golf cart garage, lots of areas to have a garden. Circular paved-driveway with a beautiful carport that can easily fit 4 cars. No HOA. County maintained road. Just a short golf cart ride away from Wildcat Cliffs Country Club.
