Highland Lakes, one of East Shelby County's premier gated communities, is spread out over 1,700 acres with 30-mile views. No matter where you choose to live in Highland Lakes, you can be assured of nice amenities, but people are what make this community different. Highland Lakes is well laid out, cut into the Appalachian ridges of Oak Mountain with five tranquil stocked lakes. Gracious homes, some with million dollar views, walking trails, streets lights, playgrounds, and parks are just a few of the pleasures you will find in this cozy community. This is a well- manicured neighborhood, low property taxes, and things to do galore not to mention the Fall Festival, and Easter Egg hunt at one of the many neighborhood parks. Oh, and did I mention location? Highland Lakes lies just off of highway 280, a short distance from the business district, fabulous restaurants, A-rated schools, and close to the airport. Come visit and make it your next home!
