Pure mediterranean both in architecture and lifestyle. This exquisite home could be sited in Italy, Greece or Africa... anywhere around the Sea. How fortunate you are that the location is here, in Fort Smith, Arkansas. It’s no longer necessary to spend any more time or money on traveling... just go home! And certainly invite friends and family to visit, too. With 7,755 square feet in the main house and another 1,000 square feet in the guest house/cabaña, there is more than enough room for everyone.
Completed in 2006 and built on eight acres in Riley Farm, this home truly is the best of both worlds. Conveniently located for quick access to town, but so secluded and private.
An Overview of the Main House:
From Highland Park Drive there is a private asphalt drive that runs about 1/10 of a mile to a well landscaped “turn-around”. Just beyond this “turn-around” are carefully sited mechanized gates that allow the perfect presentation of this home... the drive becomes concrete and winds past a pond with an aerator fountain and on up to the house. The guest parking area is random stamped concrete... the landscaping is rich, with another fountain as the centerpiece... Stone steps lead up to the entry, with a 21’ tall wooden ceiling. The custom built mahogany doors are magnificent.. standing 17’ tall, 12’ wide and embellished with stained leaded glass.
The entry foyer, living room and dining room floor is granite squares with black cabochon accents. This floor is also heated... as are all the floors in the house... the custom pre-cast concrete columns are capped with corinthian capitals and are rustic textured with a sea shell fragment finish.
Living Room and Dining Room: 39.5 x 36. 21’ tall ceilings, Schonbek chandeliers on lifts, fireplace with a custom pre-cast mantle and an inset mirror.. built-ins on either side with mirrored backing, glass shelving and polished black marble tops. Two arched french doors open onto the loggia with overlooks the pool.
Kitchen: 18 x 20.5. All Viking professional series appliances. The refrigerator is furniture finished. The stove is a massive six burner with two grills and two ovens and a “pot filler” ... the granite counter tops have a triple ogee edge. There is a center work island with a warming oven and a vegetable sink and over the island is yet another Schonbek chandelier... the ceiling finish is called “san miguel”... 10” pine logs with brick paver inlays... the contrast between the polished crystal and the rough hewn beams is genius.
Hearth Room: 21 x 20. Fireplace, built-ins on either side, breakfast bar, bay window, a tin ceiling and the same random tile slate flooring that’s in the kitchen and den.
Den: 27.5 x 18.5. This room defines the true meaning of the word, den. Cherry wood is dominant, with random tile slate floor, a full bar, fireplace with built-in flat screen television above and a box beam ceiling.
Sunroom: 14.5 x 11.9. Glass exterior “greenhouse” type wall and roof. Separate HVAC system. Power “smoke room” exhauster... if you still have any friends who smoke, this is the place to put them... There is also a water hose bibb and a floor drain for plants.
Game Room: 23 x 20.5. Natural finished pine trusses with pine boxcar ceiling Accent track lighting. The fireplace is finished with stone and has a hidden flat screen television above... the floors are antique wood plank... what a wonderful hangout! There is even a separate area for the pool table (11.5 x 15.8).
Guest Bedroom: 13.2 x 18.2. Tucked behind the bar, just off the kitchen, this room may also be used as the custodian’s suite. It does have it’s own outside entrance, and it’s own portico... that plus an extremely luxurious bath... with a backlit onyx countertop and double vanities. I could live here...
The north wing contains a piano area, a jewel of a powder room and an entry foyer to the master suite just beyond
The entry is a treasure unto itself... hand painted with a Schonbek Artemis numbered 17/100 lapis and rock crystal chandelier as the focal point.
The powder room........... an exquisite room. Completely hand painted with true venetian light fixtures. A lovely area for your guests and an impressive introduction to the quality of this home.
Study: 15.7 x 10. A warm room wrapped in a rich cherry wood, from the flooring, to the library paneling, built-in cabinetry and ornate box beam ceiling treatment with french doors that open to the loggia and then on to the pool.
Master Bedroom: 21.3 x 15.9: A retreat. With a fireplace, a hidden flat screen television, built-ins, the same ornate box beam ceiling treatment and wonderful full windows that view the pool. The master bath is a dream. Marble flooring (heated), a gold painted barrel ceiling crowned with an oil rubbed brass and crystal chandelier. Separate vanities with marble countertops, an enormous (steam) shower and a separate whirlpool tub. The closets are each large rooms with islands and walls of built-ins... off “her” closet is a safe room.
This level features two bedrooms, two baths, extra large walk-in closets and the bonus of a cedar closet...
Accessed by a very custom stairway with hand forged railings made specifically for this house. Black painted cherry wood treads, and capped with a cherry handrail. The railing at the top, along the walkway, is capped with a gold plated handrail and gold highlighting on the wrought iron. This walkway is open to the formal entry and the living room below and so creates an aesthetically pleasing accent. The flooring on the walkway is parquet.
Bedroom (3): 12 x 17.8. Tall ceiling, parquet flooring, private bath
Bedroom (4): 11.7 x 19. Private bath, walk-in closet, separate cedar closet and a balcony that looks over the guest parking area.
An Overview of the pool area and the cabana:
All rooms open onto the saltwater pool, which is in keeping with the mediterranean theme. Built by Luther Stem Pools, (again, quality), this one features a large “beach” area where the water is only 6 inches deep, urns imported from Italy are used as spillway fountains. Around the edge of the pool and running through the stone deck is a stamped and painted grape motif. There is also a meditation fountain... nothing has been overlooked.
The cabana is gracious, with 824 square feet under roof. Terra cotta tile flooring, an outdoor kitchen featuring Viking appliances and a massive woodburning fireplace with boxcar siding for the ceiling and tropical style blades on the ceiling fans. Inside the cabana is a complete apartment with 988 square feet and features a full kitchen (13.9 x 8.10), full bath and a living room (19.4 x 15.8) and bedroom (17.7 x 14.9), both with french style doors that open to the outdoor area.
An Overview of the outbuildings:
The stable: 1291 total square feet, with 4 box stalls, and an area for a groundskeeper or groomsman, or a guest to stay. There is a sleeping loft, a small shower and an efficiency kitchen. There is also a hay loft directly above the box stalls. The roof is corrugated galvanized tin... great for rainy days!
The detached garage: 900 square feet is large enough for four cars... there is also an open storage side shed with 360 square feet for tractors and such.
The main house has a two car attached garage and a porte-cochere that’s large enough for two more cars. There should be plenty of covered parking for anyone.
There are four mechanical rooms. Two upstairs, one by the garage and one 864 square feet that is under the house in an unfinished basement area. To say this is a “smart house” would be an understatement...... the system is by AMX and features security cameras, whole house sound system, really, exactly what you would expect in a house of this caliber.
