Are you tired of forest fires, severe droughts, threats of harmful radiation coming from the Pacific, and the statewide high cost of living?
Are you ready to move back to the country? To raise some of the organic food that you eat on your own property. Watch the sunrise over the water and watch the sunset over the mountains. Wake up in the morning to see the deer a mere 20’ away grazing on the local grass. All this and much more can be yours.
No water and sewer bills, low electric bills, very low taxes and insurance. Three acres with breath taking views of Beaver Lake in Northwest Arkansas. The house is located just 25 miles from Wal-Mart’s home offices, yet private and secluded (you cannot see your nearest neighbor).
The house was originally a log home built from a kit. Some years later we installed Arkansas field stone (Petra-stone) on three sides, cedar lap board siding on most of the rest with T111 finishing the backside. The structure is literally built on a rock, it’s not going anywhere.
A little information on the house itself: It is approximately 2,700 square feet heated and cooled. It has a two car attached garage with a large wood shop extending from the garage with a separate entrance via another garage door. Also attached is a small garden nook for preparing plants for the raised bed gardens.
About the gardens, I constructed 9 raised beds and used seep irrigation for watering which is on timers. There is also a large single unit greenhouse on the rear of the property which will extend the growing season.
Downstairs sports a large family room, my massage room (which could be used as a bedroom), the utility room which contains water heater, air conditioning and heating units, a mud room, a food prep room with new cabinets and sink.
Then a chef’s kitchen (Nancy and I are both certified chefs), an electrified island and a stand up bar. The dining room shares space with the stone entrance and living room. Large windows in both the dining and living rooms open up to fantastic views of the lake.
The crown jewel of the downstairs is the bathroom. It has a 6’ Jacuzzi tub, rock on two walls, a huge walk-in shower with two separate shower heads and many other features. Walking upstairs is a raised office to the left and an elevated bed on the right. There are four full length mirrored sliding doors which contain our clothes.
Up two more stairs reveals a second bathroom and three more bedrooms. One of these bedrooms has been converted to a sewing/craft room with two counters and cabinets. The flooring is mostly oak hardwood; only the three upper bedrooms have carpet. The kitchen, upper bathroom and laundry room are tile. The Prep room and lower bathroom have epoxy flooring.
Back outside you have a choice of five decks: a 10’x36’ long front covered deck, a sunrise deck, a sunset deck, a back deck and a “no tan lines” deck high upon the roof with access via the sunset deck. As a bonus there is a 10,000 gallon coy pond with a small upper pond which feeds several small waterfalls winding down into the large pool. I had a winding concrete drive poured several years ago which completes the drive up to the home.
There are many other things to share but maybe the pictures will fill in the gap. A few final words…Every home has its good and bad points, and ours is no different. We built this home for our retirement and old age. However, we did not count on my recent paralysis and having to deal with life in a wheel chair. There is much to do for upkeep in an older home, and I am unable to do it all anymore. We do have a handicap ramp leading up to the back porch which helps, However, since there are two more levels to navigate we feel it’s best to look for a different type of structure.
So, in a nutshell, come on over to the Natural State and take some of the stress out of your life. All of this could be yours for only $349,000. The furniture and appliances are negotiable.
