…Because for the last three and a half years, this house has been it. The owner is a retired home builder and, judging by all of the upgrades and updates that have been done in that short time, it’s glaringly obvious that he’s had way too much time to kill during these last few years.

Sq Ft: 936
Built: 1950
Interior features: Semi-open concept, many built-ins

Ladies and gentlemen, feast your eyes on 5807 S. Ball St.

Lacking any real semblance of a life, the owner spent his every waking thought on ways to improve the house. The result is a home with more cool components and character than anything else at this price.

Turn any corner in this little house and you’ll see yet another feature unique only to this home. Inside, the ceilings were raised to create more breathing room and some really interesting lines. Hardwood floors were added in the kitchen and dining area, but why stop there? Wood was also added to the ceiling. There are lots of built-ins throughout the house and the closets have been lined with cedar.

Outside in the back yard you’ll find a huge garden and a new 10’ x 12’ storage shed. The front porch was completely redone, and on the back patio, wood fencing has been added so that the space can be enjoyed in total privacy. It’s a regular oasis back there.

But better than anything mentioned above is your proximity to the trail system. Not even a one-minute ride from your front door is access to the Razorback Regional Greenway. That, folks, is the big trail that pretty much connects to all other trails in Fayetteville and soon will run all they way to Bentonville.

We could go on forever, so here are more improvements that have been done since 2012 in a convenient bulleted format:

  • Ceilings raised to 8 feet
  • New single-hung custom premium vinyl insulated windows (2012)
  • New Lennox HVAC heating and cooling system (2014)
  • Replaced exterior garage door (2014)
  • New Bruce 3/4-inch oak hardwood flooring (2013)
  • Replaced carpet and new vinyl flooring in beds and bath (2013)
  • New vented microwave above stove
  • Four ceiling fans added
  • Bath vanity and faucet updated (2013)
  • Tons of landscaping and raised garden boxes added
  • New 10’ x 12’ lofted barn-style storage building (2013)
  • Survey done in 2013

The house is move-in ready and the tough stuff has already been done. There are still a few projects to be completed, but the owners, determined to be walking cliches, are ready to retire down in Florida to begin work on their new hobby, collecting tiny cocktail parasols.
