A 'WALK-TO-TOWN' wonderland of overgrown cow pasture and Old Growth forest. The 'Old Edward's family homesite' land was purchased by C.B. Edwards from Sam Kelsey in 1878. The property remains owned by those heirs. Being 'Private Property' it was spared the cutting of Kelsey's Primeval Forest in 1946. Now, 144 years later, Turkey's Foot, Princess Pine, various mosses, and ferns still cover the gentle forest floor, animal paths lead here, there and everywhere. A grouping of Wild Plum trees in full fruit were recently discovered....and delicious. The big trees are stunning and the proximity to town most notable. Wouldn't it be wonderful to own your very own Nature Preserve inside Highlands city limit. Property adjoins HCLT Kelsey Trail. This much land in R2 opens up many possibilities. Public sewer has already been installed under the path of unopened Poplar Street which fronts this entire parcel. Public water is at end of 5th St. and at end of open Poplar St., it would depend on type and scope of development as to which would need to be accessed. BE BEAR WISE!!! (Please do not enter 856 5th St. Driveway, that is a private drive and not part of this parcel or for sale.)
