It is like a dream! Adorable cottage with breathtaking gardens and a private pond on Mill Creek. And it is walk to town! Your only problem will be deciding where to relax--in the gazebo overlooking the pond, in the hammock beside gurgling Mill Creek, on the covered front porch watching birds frolic amongst the flowers, or in the secret garden. (We're not telling!)
The charming one-level cottage has been fully updated. The master bedroom features a queen bed and full bathroom with a walk in shower and twin copper sinks in an antique cabinet. The second bedroom has two twin iron beds and access to the second fully appointed bathroom. Yes, of course there is air conditioning, Wi-Fi, cable, a gas fire place, and a whole house generator so your vacation is never interrupted by a power outage.
The eat-in kitchen has stainless appliances, including a dishwasher.
Further Details: But you'll probably choose to enjoy your meals on the covered front porch, which has a dining table for six, along with gliding chairs ('cause they're even better than rockers), and lots of seating. Walk around the corner to the uncovered porch with another table, more seating, and a lovely view of the pond. Squeaky the Hummingbird frequents here.
The covered back deck has a gas grill and leads to the garage which houses the washer and drier. Your one well mannered and thoroughly house trained dog under fifty pounds is allowed, but please ask it not to chase the gnomes rumored to live in the meadow...
This lovely location is a short walk to town, to Mirror Lake, to the Bascomb, or to the Rec Center. It is also on the greenway trail.
Because this property is located on Mill Creek and has a private pond, it is not suitable for toddlers or young children.
Our home is called Magic Meadow. Come fall under it's spell!
When we first drove by Magic Meadow we decided that if it ever came on the market we would buy it. It finally came on the market and we did exactly that. We were mesmerized by the cozy cottage surrounded by lovely gardens, a pond, two creeks, a water fall, and over an acre of open privacy. It was hard to imagine that the property is just a short walk to town and Highlands' famous shops and restaurants. When we are in Highlands we only have one car and we enjoy the convenience and freedom of being able to walk to town and many of Highlands local attractions.
The home offers spacious privacy with in town convenience. It is just a short walk to town, Mirror Lake, Highlands Recreation Center ( Swim, Tennis, and indoor basketball), and the Bascom. It is on the Greenway nature trail. You can walk to town or the Recreation Center on the Greenway. The property is contiguous to the Bascom and you can walk to the Bascom along the creekside nature trail.
Creek, pond, and waterfall in private walk to town setting. Your problem will be trying to decide which location on the property to sit and relax. You will not want to leave the property.
