    On the site a few years ago, didn’t sell but was recently relisted with a new agent and new photos. Here’s the old post for those that care to see it, not private so everyone can view. Photos don’t show anything new but I enjoyed the comments so kept it.

      It looks like between then and now, they repaired the pergola and the bathroom wall. Better photos of the barn, too, from the older post. I can’t beleive no one bought this. Maybe its the location…no neighbors, and that shallow lake across the road?

    This is an amazing house. It’s pretty fancy for a “Craftsman” and seems a hybrid of a few things. The boiserie (definitely a non-craftsman touch) in the main rooms looks great, chiefly because the owners wisely painted it the same color as the walls. I really like that barrel-ceilinged dining room and the tall windows in the living room. I love that old 1940’s tropical furniture in the “Florida” room…you don’t see that stuff much anymore, but it was everywhere when I was a kid. The craftsman lines of the exterior camouflage just how big this house is…it’s 5,000 SQ feet! I’ve never wanted to live in Arkansas until now.

      It’s interesting for sure! The design is attributed to Arkansas’ most accomplished architect, Charles L. Thompson. The original owner Fred Schaer died during construction and his wife Lucy died just 5 years later. She left the house to her sister, a society matron, who may have altered the interiors for a more formal look in the late 1920’s – just my guess.
      The NRHP info calls the design Mission/Spanish Revival. That seems to be automatic when there’s a red tile roof, though I’m not seeing much of that otherwise.

        Hmmmm. That’s the second time this week I felt an NRHP report was wrong about a style but some days I feel like who the hell am I to argue with the National Register?

    Murals to die for! The wooden and marble fireplace does not appear to be of the period, but I could be wrong. Oh, those murals! I want a room floor to ceiling with them.

      I really like the murals you sometimes find in New England houses, depicting the farms the house sits on, or the community. They’re usually like folk art, and there are some people who do do them nowadays. I really like these ones, in this house, in the dining room. Nice touch, and I’d never get rid of them!

    Love the tile roof and the craftsman details of the facade. I love the light airy kind of beaux arts interior, it’s elegant and not lots of dark wood like a craftsman. This is the first house I think I’ve seen on OHD that I honestly would not change a single thing. I would enjoy those huge pecan trees and a fruit orchard in a beautiful, peaceful setting.

    Another tile roof! I’m with StevenF about the gorgeous barrel ceiling, although I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Craftsman with one before. Beautiful, spacious, with a pretty kitchen and fantastic porch!

    I really like the outside ofthis house-that pergola is just begging for some wisteria, or grapes! I like the color of it, too, and the verandah. I’ve always wanted a nice big porch I could sit on, read the paper, or watch a good heavy rainfall….kind of like the one we’re getting right at this very moment…yup, yet MORE frigin’ rain! Anyway, I like the inside, to. Lots of nice big rooms, love the walls, those half moon murals in the dining room-I’d never want to get rid of them, so I’d get some kind of art expert in right away, to do something to protect them, forever and ever. The driveway-where I grew up, everyone had driveways like that, with the two cement lanes, and grass in between. If you ever go to Disney’s planned community, Celebration, in Florida, you’ll see a neighborhood they did with driveways like this. When I looked at the map, I liked this place-its really not that far from Little Rock, yet its in the countryside. Nice for someone like me, who doesn’t care to live IN a city, but at the same time, doesn’t want to be too far FROM a city. That lake, though…it looks kind of shallow, and slow, rather a big pond than a lake. I wonder if occasional spraying by Mosquito Joe would help?

    Beautiful house but it’s not the interior I expected to see.
