Magnificent is the word to describe this stately home located in downtown Highlands and sited on +/-5.6 lovely acres! This was the original Town of Highlands doctor's home built in 1926 with the finest craftsmanship and is listed as one of the 189 historic structures in Highlands by the Highlands Historical Society. The warm wormy chestnut and farm board walls, custom woodwork and angles combined with plentiful windows enhance the charm and beauty of this special place. Enter in the large foyer that leads to a grand parlor on the right with a fireplace and to the left are 2 spacious bedrooms and baths. Beyond the staircase is a large updated eat-in kitchen with a large gas range and built-in Sub-zero refrigerator and freezer. Entertain guests in the gorgeous dining room, reflective of a bygone era, that opens to a stone-laden sunroom with windows that offer views of the expansive yard. Stroll the grounds in the cool morning mist or play a game of tennis on your own court and then relax in the private gazebo. The upper level features 4 expansive bedrooms and baths, filled with beautiful furnishings and custom draperies and wallpapers that reflect the charm of the era. Large pantries and a basement are perfect for storage, including wines! A separate guest house allows guests their privacy and is adorable. This is a rare find in town behind a gate that reveals a private and lovely domain!
