Highland Pines Real Estate
Deep Roots and Rich History
The towering Ponderosa Pines are what draws people in—but the rich history and deeply rooted culture keeps them around! Highland Pines is desired by many locals and folks who are looking to relocate because it offers an escape from the busyness of the downtown area, but also keeps it within arm’s reach. Nestled just into the mountains of Northwest Prescott, Highland Pines has become a popular location for seasonal visitors and year-round residencies. The lifestyle the neighborhood provides is unlike anything else—with many lots having horse stable privileges and ATV trails! Highland Pines is a secluded dreamland.
The homes in Highland Pines come in all shapes and sizes, with a little something for every budget and need. Ranging from small cottages to enormous mountainside estates, Highland Pines offers a “back country” seclusion that can’t be found in many other places (and with paved roads to boot!). Homes average around $325,000 and the community is primarily made up of single-family builds. Large cabin-like estates and A-frame houses are a popular architectural choice due to the snow that befalls at the higher elevation. Many homeowners are part-time residents, coming down just for the winter months and a small HOA fee ensures the neighborhood is well-kept and maintained throughout the year.
Highland Pines is an historic community, dating back to the early 1900s—known in its time as a popular summer retreat, but later becoming an even more popular location to call home year-round. Homeowners in Highland Pines enjoy four distinct seasons, all fairly mild, and slightly diverse from the more extreme temperatures in other parts of Arizona. A gentle breeze is common and cooler temps are always welcomed. The neighborhood is secluded and abundant with local plants and fauna. The community does not come with a club house or community center, but horse stable privileges allow homeowners to create their own forms of fun!
Known for its privacy, most Highland Pines residents take pride in the rural landscape and feel of the neighborhood—but the fairly close proximity to central Prescott is beneficial when it comes time to shop for necessities and requirements of life. Seasonal residents who love to golf will be happy to know that Capital Canyon Club is close enough to see from parts of the community, but not a within the immediate neighborhood. Year-round residents enjoy being just 7 miles from Downtown Prescott—keeping the hustle and bustle of the city at bay, but close enough to enjoy a little nightlife and entertainment when the mood arises.
Highland Pines is not the type of community that caters to its residents via community gatherings at a community center, but it is the type of neighborhood that provides its residents with all the outdoor recreation they could ever imagine. Surrounding the neighborhood is a rural, back country landscape—perfect for hiking, camping, biking, exploring trails on an ATV, horseback riding, fishing, off-roading, and so much more! Highland Pines is a neighborhood for those who have an appeal to take outdoor adventures and see for themselves what the world has to offer.
