Less than six months ago, the area in front of Searcy Country Club was wooded, filled with soaring pines and deer and skunks and opossums and other wildlife.
Then we noticed heavy equipment out there clearing the area. Then we noticed surveyors planning roads and a subdivision. Hubby came home one day and said, "Well, the lots just took a big jump in price because they hit solid rock where they're trying to dig for the sewer lines."
Driving by it each day has been interesting. Today I snapped a picture of their pretty little gate-house. It will be Searcy's second gated community and the first with a gate-house. What the gate-house will be used for is a mystery. Perhaps it's just looks.
It is attractive though! I love the copper that is shiny and bright right now and the little spires on the top are charming. I could almost do a sequence of how to build a fence. They are putting up concrete blocks and then covering with native stone as you can see in this picture. The name of the subdivision is The Dominion.
It's Searcy's latest and possibly fanciest subdivisions. I'll be watching its progress and hoping to be able to sell a lot or two!! If anyone reads my blogs and remembers my skunk hunts you'll understand why the animals came to my house.
