There are just some houses that feel a certain way the minute you walk in; it's hard to describe exactly what that feeling is but it lives somewhere between happiness, a genuine sense of comfort, peacefulness and the absolute certainty the house was loved and cared for as if it was part of the family. Passed down through a lovely, local family who has owned it since 1967, 43 Highland is, without a doubt, one of those houses. It sits neatly on Highland Street, part of one of Rockland's most established and desirable neighborhoods. Surrounded by a well-manicured lawn and partially shaded by a canopy of mature trees this house is an example of quality, sound construction so often found in houses built in the 1950s. With 4 bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms, this is a house that offers true one-floor living with a layout that feels spacious but not too big. A large kitchen with an abundance of storage and counter space, a breakfast bar and dining area makes this area the heart of the house. Off the kitchen is a sun room which opens outside to a patio area and the sizable, but manageable back yard. Although you are in town, which affords you the unique and enviable ability to walk to any of the amazing amenities Rockland proper offers, you wouldn't know it. This a quiet neighborhood perfect for evening walks or reading in your backyard in the afternoon sun. The living room is open and bright with a beautiful fireplace and built-ins. The basement level is finished with access from both the interior and the exterior. This room has endless possibilities - there is a woodstove here as well as a built-in bar but ideas like a home office, play room, home gym also will come to mind. The fact of the matter is this: it's easy to replace carpet and to remove wallpaper; but it won't be easy finding another house so solid, well-maintained, ideally situated or bursting at the seams with that 'feel good' feeling everyone wants to have when they come home.
