Homes for sale in this neighborhood appeal to those who love the authentic details and character only a home from the early 1900’s can provide.

Another reason buyers find this area appealing is the close proximity of the Southside area. Southside is a retail and restaurant district with restaurants, shops and entertainment reflecting the local sights, sounds, and flavors.

One of the most famous restaurants in the area is Highlands Bar and Grill, always ranked on the “10 Best in the U.S.” lists. My husband loves the Bang Bang Shrimp, and I love it all! It is a favorite anniversary celebration spot for many couples.
