Highland Square Charmer! Enter through the double door foyer with glimpse of the turned wood staircase and continue to enjoy the tasteful updates, combined with warming hardwood floors and elegant features such as 3 fireplaces, library with built in cabinetry, sunroom and additional living suite. The soaring ceilings and moldings add drama to the first floor. Modern updates include new windows on the upper floors, 2nd floor laundry room, and additional 3rd car garage. Escape to the completely private backyard oasis, with gazebo, pond, raised beds, and tastefully bricked patios. Hardwood flooring throughout. The updated kitchen features granite countertops, center island, pantry, natural maple cabinetry & stainless appliances. Second floor has the owner's suite and 3 additional bedrooms, laundry room, bonus or playroom, sun porch and 2 updated full baths. The 3rd floor has the additional living suite with bedroom, sitting room and private bath. Efficient zoned air conditioning! Two car attached garage, plus oversized detached garage for even more storage. The location can't be beat, close to restaurants, shopping and if you hurry, maybe just in time for the PorchRokr festival!

    "There are a lot of bars on the main strip, but it is safe and not too crazy. The library is great and with a Walgreens on the corner and a Mustard Seed Market you can feel taken care of. Plenty of nice parks as well. "

    "This neighbourhood is great! Well kept houses, safe environment and parks with activities with five minutes walking distance. Home to porch rockr and other festivals. Quiet for being close to downtown, but still close enough you can hear Lock 3 concerts and the St V band play. "

    "Highland Square is more distant from the highway than other neighborhoods/areas but that means it feels much homier. Most of the houses around me are older/historic, very quaint, with gardens and people walking dogs all the time. "
