What are we all about at the Highlands?

The Highlands is most often considered the most luxurious property in North Mississippi. We, the residents, feel the Highlands is Heaven on the East side of Oxford prime. This is primarily because we gladly cohabitate approximately 85 private acres of spring fed, trophy lake along with 100's of natural trees, birds, deer and other critters even we are surprised to spy, now and then. We even have our very own Eagle!
