"We just loved the stone façade and porte-cochère design, and the finishing on the house interior compared to other houses in the same price range was far superior when we were house shopping. Richard Harp, a premier builder in Little Rock had built this house for his family, and the house reflected his great attention to details. The small neighborhood was also a plus with children."
"It is a wonderful custom-built estate on 4.4 acres with soaring entry with double stairway. It has a den with lots of windows open to a chef's kitchen and family dining. Master suite with gym, steam room and elevator to guest quarters with full bath, island kitchen and living room."
"We designed the home for our large family to enjoy, keeping in mind that we wanted a home in which we could entertain small or large groups comfortably. We were also very mindful that someday our kids would grow up, move away, and then bring their growing families ‘home’ to visit. We wanted that ‘home’ to be a place of comfort and ease when they came." This property is currently listed. For more information go to 25SologneCircle.com.
"My husband represented the original owners who built the house when he was a young lawyer. Years later, we looked at everything on the market and learned that this house was available. When it came time to make a decision, my husband said he'd always loved this house; he just never dreamed he'd be able to live in it. That was our decision made."
"We wanted this home to be as comfortable as it is beautiful. This is our home where our kids play, where ladies lunch, birthdays are celebrated, and our friends get married. We have access out our back door to every outdoor activity possible, and out the front door we are only five minutes by car to schools and shopping. This home is a beautiful combination of comfort inside and out."
10 ,000 sq. ft. / 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms / Built in 2001
"The house was built in the Queen Anne style and received facelifts in both the Colonial Revival and Craftsman styles. It has 26 rooms, at least 10 of which could be bedrooms. I chose it because of its garden, its ‘feel-good vibe,’ its beauty, and its historical significance."
"We thought it would be perfect for raising a family and entertaining. My husband’s favorite place is outside under the pool shed. Mine is my dressing room and kitchen. The twins love the third floor, which was designed as a city flat. We did a full renovation on the house, which lasted three and a half years, and added three structures. Our home is French formal at its best, but comfortable and family friendly at the same time."
"We loved the house the moment we drove up to it. We also really love the neighborhood and all the revitalization going on. Being so close to downtown and everything that brings was also a big selling point. We hope to grow our little family in this house."
Built in 2003 / Five bedrooms / 9,800 square feet, 10.5 acres
"We chose the location for its beauty and privacy. We chose this style of architecture for its unique charm, and it took 18 months to build. The 10.5 acres provided a perfect building site that takes advantage of the natural beauty of the surrounding mountains."
"When we found the house, it had been vacant for three years and was almost in disrepair. I walked in and saw such amazing potential for the ‘bones.’ My husband thought it was awful and couldn’t see any redeeming features. Luckily I won out."
