Highland is an unincorporated community in western Howard County located at the junction of Highland Road, Maryland Route 216and Maryland Route 108. Once composed primarily of horse farms, Highland has become a neighborhood made up of expansive estate homes on multi-acre lots. Many of these estates remain working farms, while others are now condo and townhouse communities in a breathtaking rural setting.
Highland residents enjoy the small town shopping experience of the central crossroads. The historic architecture and buildings from the 1800’s and earlier will make it easy to imagine the plans for the Boston Tea Party that were discussed at meetings in the town as well as meetings with Northern sympathizers in the Civil War at Well’s Tavern. The proximity to the Columbia Mall and all of its restaurants make Highland real estate a very desirable choice for residents.
If the idea of a beautiful home with spacious living areas in a pastoral and historic setting on a large lot or in a new community is appealing, then Highland real estate should make it to the top of your search list. Driving along rolling roads, past farms and pastures with grazing horses is a relaxing way to unwind after working in nearby Baltimore or Washington D.C.
