Several recent improvements ~ new roof, exterior power washed and stained, new wood-look tile floors in 2 bedrooms, mile long lane recently grated and some material added.rnrnTwelve years ago I was incredibly blessed to find this special property. It is serene and peaceful. I would have stayed forever except that for business reasons I needed to relocate back to the West Coast.rnrnThis region of the Ozark Mountains in North-Central Arkansas is one of the best kept secrets! Bordered by the lush, pristine Buffalo River and Wilderness, there are ample outdoor activities (swimming, fishing, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, biking, caverns, cliffs, breathtaking rock formations), wonderful community, and no traffic (not a single traffic light in the entire county!). The city of Fayetteville is a 1 hour – 20 minute drive through beautiful mountains and countryside, where you will find several excellent full service health food stores, and all the usual chain stores such as Home Depot, Lowes, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, etc. There is also the smaller city of Harrison only 45 minutes away, where you will find Home Depot, Wal-Mart and 2 organic food stores. Only 33 miles north of Harrison is Branso, the up and coming music hub of Missouri. The Northwest Arkansas Airport is located approx. 20 minutes north of Fayetteville, where there are non-stop flights to most major cities.rnrnAn abundance of birds, wildlife and native plants completely surround this property. There are mature black and English walnut trees, oak, cedar, hickory, maple, cypress, sycamore, dogwood, and many more. The passive solar attributes of the house design, work together with the roof overhang to allow the warm sunlight in through the large windows and sliding glass doors during winter months, while reducing sun exposure in the summer months. This property also has its own microclimate due to the north and west facing mountains that border it. You can always count on it being several degrees cooler in the summer, warmer in the winter, and less wind than the surrounding area. In the spring and early summer, the entire hundred acres sings with the symphony of many babbling creeks and mini waterfalls that wind their way throughout the forest. It is truly magical!rnrnIf your dream is to be self-sustaining, and to live in a safe, tranquil, pure environment, remote enough to feel like you live in your own little bubble, yet near enough to populated areas so you still feel connected, then maybe this very special property is meant to be your little slice of heaven…rnFor further information, send an email to offgridproperty@yahoo.com.
