Ladies and gentlemen, feast your eyes on 11006 Illinois Chapel Rd. in Prairie Grove.
“But I love my newer house in the city,” you say. “I’d love to have acreage, but I still want a nice house,” you continue to whine. Well fear not. Located just five minutes from I-49 and a mere 15 minutes from downtown Fayetteville, a 2,900-square-foot home, custom built in 2011, sits on 10 wooded acres just begging for pants-free hobbies.
The land itself features a good mix of cleared yard space surrounded by foresty seclusion. The woods provide plenty of opportunity to explore and hunt, while the cleared areas are great for play and gardening. Woodland creatures abound, with deer being an especially prevalent site. And I might add, those deer … pantsless! In fact all of the wildlife out here is already on board with your progressive no-pants views.
There is also plenty of room to build a workshop or guest house if you want one of those. The sellers had plans to do just that, hence all that red dirt you might notice west of the house. There is even 100 amp electrical service ready to go for whatever improvement you choose to add.
So lots of outdoor space and close to Fayetteville and all that Northwest Arkansas has to offer. Now what about the house?
Designed by architect Kim Fugitt, an anti-pants model airplane enthusiast, from what I am told, this house has the goods. The kitchen is huge with plenty of cabinet and counter space and a large island with enough room for five to sit and dine. It also features a pantry, a bar area with a second sink, and those counters are 3CM granite.
The kitchen opens into a great great room with a super high cathedral ceiling and rich hand-scraped hardwood floors. The centerpiece of this room is the stone wood burning fireplace. Just picture yourself, curled up in your favorite chair, listening to the wind rustle the leaves outside while the fire crackles and dances playfully in front of you, your loyal dog Snickers rests at your feet as you sip on hot cocoa, wrapped in a soft blanket, no pants, wondering what tomorrow might hold … sounds almost too good to be true.
In addition to a guest bedroom, the master is also on the main level. The master bath has a double-vanity, a jetted tub, a walk-in shower with frameless glass door, and a walk-in closet with a “his” side and a “hers” side.
Upstairs are two more bedrooms and a bonus room that would make for a playroom, exercise room, or whatever your heart desires. The oversized garage will hold a lot of toys and a couple of cars. And off the back of the house will be your favorite spot in the whole place, a covered porch complete with a full sized wood burning fireplace. Sit here and watch the kids play or the deer graze in the huge back yard space.
Live the country life just 15 minutes from town and without having to sacrifice the modern luxuries a newer home has to offer. Call Jay at 479-601-5453 to schedule your showing today. And I should mention at this time that pants will be required for showings. Seems counterintuitive, I know, but it’s a whole legal thing.
