Seven years ago I was incredibly blessed to find this special property. It is serene and peaceful beyond words. I would stay forever except that circumstances have occurred that I needed to relocate back to the West Coast for business reasons.
This 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 an excellent full service health food store, and all the usual chains 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 new organic food stores. Branson, the up and coming music hub of Missouri is only 33 miles north of Harrison. The Northwest Arkansas Airport is located approx. 20 minutes north of Fayetteville, where there are non-stop flights to most major cities.
An 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 coax 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!
If 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…
