This is a unique situation, retired army officer and wife built this dream home to be by their grandkids, what happens, daughter gets divorced, now they are stuck in their dream home with their closest neighbor (1/4 mile away) being their ex-son-in-law. The house was designed and built in 1994 by Bob Berry, a retired army officer who had relocated 24 times in his 24 years of service, needless to say that he knew what he was looking for in his dream house).

A little bit about the area, NE Arkansas is known for its rice farming and duck hunting in the winter. This house sits backs to Historic Black River in Lawrence County and is located at the beginning (not the end) of a paved rural road. Talk about seeing the stars at night, you can literally go outside and not see another human light if you have all of your house's lights off, you can see the Milky Way perfectly most nights!

Some features of the house include: 14 inch thick exterior walls, geo-thermal heating and cooling (year round heating and cooling costs for the over 2300 sq. ft. main house is less that $30 per month), a Florida room 12' x 56' containing a hot tub, workout area, poker table, overflow dining area and living room (this room can be selectively heated and cooled), total of nine Hunter fans throughout the home, exterior is a combo of brick, vinyl, and aluminum. The house offers an oversized garage 30' x 26', great room with vaulted ceiling and two fans, ceramic tile floor in kitchen, dining area, and master bedroom, HUGE custom built-in entertainment centers in living room and master, built-in china cabinet, interior doors are 36" wide, hallway is 48" wide (the entire home is wheelchair friendly because they were planning on living there forever). The kitchen features two sink areas both with disposals, tiled countertops, roof mounted extractor fan (600 CFM). The house offers two water heaters, one supporting the kitchen and laundry, and the other supporting the bathrooms (providing near and instant heat), 9KW generator for emergency power (fueled by propane).

In addition to the main house there is also an 1100 sq. ft. farmhouse that was built in the 1950 which is now being used as a workshop, but could easily be converted into overflow living (large hunting trips, large family gatherings, In-Laws, or a caretaker's quarters).

This house is absolutely one of a kind and is in a great location if you like the outdoors (hunting, gardening, water sports (great water skiing river), farming, or just enjoy the outdoors and the peace and quiet).

Please give Bob Berry a call if you have any interest at all or know of anyone that does have any interest. Like mentioned above, this is a dream house that cannot be enjoyed because of family issues.

Bob�s phone number is 870-886-3938. If you are interested but want additional information like floor plan, tax information, proof of elevation certificate, or anything else, please call Bob or send an email. Thank you and please tell anyone and everyone who might be interested. Thank you!
