Nestled on 13 plus acres of natural woodlands and perennial gardens, this 1920's cottage was built by Henry Wright, an active naturalist who helped create the Highlands Botanical Garden. The kitchen features wormy chestnut cabinets, and the living room paneling is chestnut, planed prior to the blight. Mr. Wright milled lumber from the property when he built the house and brought in granite for the fireplace from the nearby quarry. The living room floor is red oak from Tennessee which Mr. Wright laid himself in the herringbone pattern in the 1930's. The home represents Highlands history left for us to enjoy. The kitchen, living room with stone fireplace/wood stove insert, and main bedroom/bath are on the main level. There is a second bedroom and office/study on the second level. The covered front porch is off the living room. As you enter the property, there is a small pond and stream, as well as a second stream off the back of the property. An old garage sits below the house, currently used for storage, and along the main drive sits the shop brought in from the Highlands School with maple flooring from the old gym. Today it is used as a garden shop but it could be used for an office, etc., or the location would be perfect for a guest house. The location just minutes from Highlands, yet private and with easy access, is ideal for someone seeking a family compound or for subdividing. Home has been well insulated with added insulation in the walls, floors and most ceilings.
