This region of the Ozark Mountains in North-Central Arkansas is one of the best kept secrets! Bordered by the lush, pristine Buffalo River Wilderness, there are ample outdoor activities (swimming, fishing, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, biking, caverns, cliffs, breathtaking rock formations), no traffic (not a single traffic light in the entire county), and there is a small organic restaurant & store in the nearby town of Jasper. The city of Fayetteville is a 1 hour-20 min drive through beautiful mountains & countryside, where you will find an excellent full service health food store, Home Depot, Lowes, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, etc. There is also the smaller city of Harrison only 45 minutes away, w/ Home Depot, Wal-Mart & 2 new organic food stores. Branson, the newest music hub of Missouri is 33 mi from Harrison. The NW Arkansas Airport is approx. 20 min from Fayetteville, where there are non-stop flights to most major cities.
An abundance of birds, wildlife & 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 house design works together w/ the roof overhang to coax the warm sunlight in thru large windows & sliding glass doors during winter, while reducing sun exposure in summer. This property 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, & less wind than the surrounding area. In the spring & early summer, the entire hundred acres sings with the symphony of babbling creeks & mini waterfalls that wind their way throughout the forest. It is truly magical!
If your dream is to be self-sustaining, & 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 your little slice of heaven.
