Home of the Week: A Highlands, NC, Getaway


I have a weird way of judging homes. Guess it’s kinda like how I judge politicians. Would I like to hangout and have a beer on this porch? With this home, the answer is yes. Some homes just speak to you, while others invite you in and hand you drink.

This little gem in Highlands, NC, certainly earned our attention.

Retreat to this luxurious private home in a beautiful park-like setting with bubbling stream located two miles from Main Street Highlands and adjoining Highlands Country Club. This custom-built Craftsman style home, designed by Architect Jeffery Owen and Interior Designer Dan Carithers, is warm and inviting with open-concept living. The light-filled living room with casual dining area features oak flooring, old world plaster, warm stonework fireplace, and reclaimed wood beamed ceilings. The gourmet kitchen is top of the line with stainless steel, custom cabinetry, and gorgeous quality granite countertops.
