Once owned by the renowned botanist Thomas Grant Harbison, who worked for the Biltmore Estate in 1895. With 5 bedrooms and 3 Baths, Harbison House would make the perfect B & B, or family compound. This is only one of a few historic homes in the Highlands area. 

Enjoy the 3+ acres of lush native plantings combined thoughtfully with colorful annuals and perennials in several gardenscapes; one featuring a garden fountain reminiscent of Charleston or Savannah. Centered around the stone fireplace is the kitchen which and eating area - perfect for chilly sleepy mornings in the Mountains. The main floor opens to a grand stone patio and a sleeping porch on the second story -a wonderful southern tradition. The whole house attic is perfect for storage or could be turned into a movie room for the little ones. 

Only a 4 minute drive to downtown Highlands makes this home close to shopping and dining, yet far enough away from noise and street lights. Own a piece of history in this updated 1921 home.
