Three Beautiful Homes for Sale in Highland 
Lakes Subdivision

It’s no secret that Birmingham is home to some of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Alabama. From the swanky, urban lofts of the Pizitz in the heart of downtown to the manicured lawns of Clairmont Avenue, the options abound. As a result, the real estate business is in full swing in the Iron City. Terry Crutchfield, a local realtor, is showcasing some of the most sought-after properties of the Greystone area, each equipped with its own unique set of amenities that add a value all their own.

The first stop in the neighborhood is 272 Highland Park Drive, a four bedroom family home currently on the market for $509,900. While this property has more than enough to offer, it’s most notable for its flawless landscaping. Outdoor living spaces are a hot amenity right now, and this house takes the cake. The back deck overlooks an enormous fenced-in patio and an even bigger backyard, complete with its own private lake and boat ramp.

This gorgeous area is ideal for gatherings with friends and family. The fireplace, a massive stone structure sandwiched between two water fountains, is the obvious focal point of the space. More than impressive, it’s downright beautiful. This outdoor living retreat is perfect for making summertime memories that last a lifetime.

The next house is just down the street—366 Highland Park Drive is on sale for $589,900, a good bit higher than its outdoorsy neighbor. Although its five bedrooms, vaulted ceilings and four-car garage make it impressive enough, the most eye-catching feature is the kitchen. This perfectly dreamy room greets you with everything you could imagine: brand-new stainless steel appliances, tons of cabinet space, granite countertops, an oversized island and a classic breakfast area nestled between bay windows. Best of all, the kitchen is flooded head to toe in natural lighting and opens up to a keeping room, making it the ideal family gathering place. Imagine all the holiday meals that will be prepared there!

Last but most certainly not least, 331 Highland View Drive sits at a pricey $989,900, and it’s not hard to see why. Only one word is needed to describe this home: spectacular. It really is a sight to see. A walk through the massive front doors reveals a spiraling staircase to the west and an ornate chandelier to the north. This mansion offers not only an elevator and a two-story closet but also a home gym and outside deck complete with a fireplace and a built-in grill.The most coveted feature of the house, however, is not the elevator or the closet but the luxurious master bathroom. It’s a gigantic space made for royalty, with first-class amenities fit only for a king and queen.

The Highland Lakes subdivision holds a charm and value that speak for themselves. The unmistakable value of these gems coupled with their desirable location all but guarantees they won’t stay on the market for long.
