Hot Springs, Arkansas is a very popular relocation destination, surrounding the National Park and Bath House Row. The hot springs were first discovered by native Americans and the area has evolved into an extremely popular visitor destination because of its chain of three lakes, really good golf, Oaklawn Park live thoroughbred racing and casino gambling, on-going entertainment, and relaxed moderate-size friendly atmosphere.
This historic Craftsman style architectural home inspired by Frank Loyd Wright is on the National Register of Historic Places. The 99 year old home site of 7.62 acres features an attached porte cochere, concrete circle drive, a low natural stone boundary wall on street front, a dog-run complex, cool potting shed, 4-stall stable, shed barn, guest cottage, and about 4 acres of pasture.
Remarkable features include: 50' long floored attic as a good bonus game room, etc., lots of beveled glass window and door panes and Craftsman glass door cabinets, 1,024 sq.ft. master bedroom or family room with a fireplace and "disappearing" bed, sunroom, artistic sponge painted bath walls, custom whirlpool tile bath spa and showers in a master bath. An updated kitchen has a "U"-shaped island and lots of counter space, gas cooking, wood burning fireplace, an overhead light and stained glass valance, and marvelous view to back of the estate. A patio garden adjoins a large lawn that is bordered by a spirea hedge and has a very unique 8' tempered beveled glass table top mounted on weathered "L"-shaped stump. A dog-run complex was designed for the servicing and housing of show-breed dogs, with a service building and fenced exercise yard. Being inside this historic home and its period design and features really take you back to the early 20th century.
