Located in the Ozark Mountains of northwest Arkansas near the charming town of Eureka Springs, my husband and I took on this project to create a mountain retreat in close proximity to my hometown and family. We rescued this 14 acre property from years of neglect and abandonment with a complete renovation. We opened up the interior floor plan, upgraded the electrical and plumbing systems, installed a new kitchen and master bath, and upgraded finishes throughout the house. Updates to the exterior included a new red metal roof, new doors, new cedar siding, and a new two tone paint job. Site improvements included new stone retaining walls, a new fenced garden, upgrades to the greenhouse, and a new rear deck. The house was made more energy efficient with the installation of new insulation, new exterior doors, and a new geothermal mechanical system. This labor of love spanned over three years, until we sold in 2018.
