Known as the Historic Hatchett House, this historic home was built in 1910 and is located on Main Street in historic Leslie, Arkansas. In the late 1800's and early 1900's, Leslie had a population of over 10,000 and most of these residents were related to the stave mills which produced 3,000 to 5,000 whiskey barrels daily. Today Leslie is a small, quaint town of approximately 400 people, but the rich history of the town is evident through the refurbished historic buildings that house antique stores, a coffee shop, as well as popular eating establishments.

When you step on to the front porch of this historic home and twist the knob on the old doorbell you are immediately taken back to a simpler yet glorious past in this home that is over 100 years old. This home boasts tall ceilings, hardwood floors, and amazing wood craftsmanship. The main floor has a kitchen, dining room, full bath, and 2 living rooms. The staircase leading to the second floor is something to behold with the intricate detail that leads the way to 4 bedrooms, and a bathroom with an old clawfoot tub. On the second floor, there is also a kitchenette that reportedly was available for boarders at an additional cost.

This historic home has a tremendous amount of features already in place for the right buyer to create an amazing Bed and Breakfast. Or maybe you are looking for a historic home to rebuild to create your personal residence with your own twist. This property has been owned by the Hatchett family since it was built, opportunities like this don't come around very often.

This property enjoys an expansive 2-acre +/- lot with plenty of room to entertain guests or simply enjoy the freedom of extra space in town. Located on the property is a 20 X 25 shop building with concrete floor. Also, on the property is a 1,800 sq ft house that has extensive water damage in the main floor.

This unique central Ozarks property is located near the Buffalo National River, Mountain View, Arkansas, Greers Ferry Lake, and Branson, Missouri.

    This could be a very nice home in a very quiet, peaceful setting. Does anyone have an idea what the 12 panel door in picture 18 might be? Almost looks like an elevator, but that is not mentioned. From what I can tell, it doesn’t appear to be double pocket doors. Hmmmm…………

    What a wonderful opportunity for someone to open a bed and breakfast, and also have a retreat. Not too far from Little Rock for a great retreat from the city, or a place to stay and float the Buffalo River while you’re there.

    1885 Italianate.

    Looks like it was walked away from in the early 40’s! What a cool house, almost all untouched and not ruined. Did anyone do a street view? Neat little sleepy old town.

    Tin roof, linoleum rug, cedar lined closet, beautiful millwork and steel kitchen cabinets? Yes, please.

    The street view from Google struck me as funny with all the plows on the property. I would love to see the completed restoration on this house.

    Newest addition to my favorites list…some of the rooms remind me of my great-grandparents’ house, early 1900s house updated in the 40s and 50s…it is amazing that time has passed this house by. Very few like this left.

    Home crush Monday!! I love everything about it. That poor kitchen is screaming for someone to love it back to beauty. So much potential

    I was also looking for pics of the other house and the shop. Anyone see them?

    Love this home. So many wonderful features, floors, pocket and French doors, original light fixtures, leaded glass, great kitchen just needs a good scrub! Wonder about the other house mentioned in the listing. Looks like there is a path between the 2 houses!!
