The Highlands In 2002

Welcome to our home! Construction on our home began in or around 1760. All of the the original interior wood work, including plastered ceiling decorations remain to this day.

Nearly all of the original oak floors (with the exception of the dining room) remain intact. The home is a Federalist style brick home constructed with Flemish bond brick work. It has an A slope roof and 6 dormers on front and back.

The home features 5 bedrooms, 6 fireplaces, 3 full baths, one half bath and a modern kitchen. With a home this old, it's always going to be a work in progress, but so far it's been a labor of love.
