Cabin is ready to walk into and start living. We'll even supply the linens, counter top appliances and dishes.

$93,500.00 . . . . Mostly WOODS! Thinking of moving to the Mt View, AR area? Prefer country living? Tired of knee deep snow and ice? Here's your home-- 1-1/2 story, 3 small bedrooms, 2 small baths, double car port-- private, beautiful, clean, completely remodeled on 5.7 acres On a mountain top! New roof two years old, mini-split, PEX plumbing. Wheelchair, wheel chair access, handicap, handicapped ramp. Crime free area between Fox and Timbo, AR, only 14 miles from Mt View.

This is a completely renovated 100 year old cabin with lots of rustic touches throughout. You can still see the saw marks on the huge beams left exposed in the kitchen and dining area which is the original part of the cabin. When renovating the cabin, the exterior boards were saved and repurposed for the stairway wall and hand rails. If you like modern, polished cookie-cutter floor plans or decor, this cabin is not for you. If on the other hand you want something that your family will be proud to own another 100 years from now, this may be your place.

We have lots of visitors that come for the mountains and music which are both free in just about any direction you look! Mt View is the Folk Music Capitol of the world! If you're a painter, great! There are two artists that live on the road. The most popular State Park in Arkansas, the Ozark Folk Center, is in Mt View. Blanchard Springs and Blanchard Caverns are popular area attractions. Fish Mirror Lake or the White River, Kayak or Canoe the Buffalo. Stroll the square in Mt View and listen to the music, host your own music getaway right in your own back yard around your camp fire! Plenty of activities for retirees or visiting grandchildren . . . I forgot to mention the Loco Ropes Zip Line . . . OR-- if you're a small family simply wanting to relocate to the country for a better life away from the crime in the cities, smaller schools, etc, this is the place. There are three great, small schools to choose from as well as all the other benefits of country living . . . Fresh country air, great neighbors, raising your own livestock or chickens, gardening, bird watching, enjoying the wildlife, canning plum jam and jelly from your own (prolific) plum tree in the backyard, just picking blackberries in the woods or hunting for morel mushrooms. All sorts of experiences that would enhance the life of youngsters growing up in the country or perhaps extend the life of retirees, who knows.

One hour and 45 minutes from Little Rock, 14 miles from Mt View, Arkansas. Two hours from Branson, MO. Three hours from Springfield, MO. Atop a mountain ridge, Fox Mountain is a star gazer, bird lovers paradise! Even eagles! There's a painting everywhere you look, the Autumn colors this year were absolutely stunning! We almost had a Winter and Spring has been wet but wonderful!

All appliances included . . . Stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, washer and dryer. Furniture if you want it. Water repellant laminate flooring throughout. Vaulted ceiling in Living room. A whole wall of floor to ceiling windows across the back of the sun porch which overlooks a beautiful wooded, backyard area strewn with lichen covered boulders and a small pond. A landscapers dream yard just waiting.

The sun porch would make a great art studio, study, writer's retreat or hobby area. The house is small, about 1600 sq feet (that includes two porches) but very open downstairs. One small bedroom/bath is downstairs and two small ones with a 3/4 bath upstairs. A huge storage area is upstairs. This house has an unusual, out of the ordinary yet very practical layout. Not a run of the mill, cookie cutter floor plan. On a concrete pier foundation there is a crawl space and a room for the hot water heater. The previous owner was in the cement business so there's lots of concrete in, around and under the house. Very well built and sturdy, the house was built around a 100 year old cabin. The huge log beams were left exposed in the kitchen and dining area so they could be seen.

There's an extra large, double, attached carport (RV gravel parking pad on the other side of the house) with a covered handicap ramp along the side of the house (not the front of the house) that leads up to the back porch. The covered side deck off the French doors in the back is a great BBQ area. Sit out in the evenings and watch the deer and the turkey. Plenty of room for a garden. All elecitric with propane back up, new mini split heat and A/C, 8 ceiling fans! Very energy efficient. Large front porch with all wood surround. Nice wide steps both front and back. Very private, the house sits well back from the gravel road with a circular driveway and good sized, well built storage building.

There is a pond-- a VERY small pond which could be easily enlarged.

There is a gravel pad off to the right of the house, perfect for an OTR trucker family, room to park an 18 wheeler rig or an RV or even a mother-in-law mobile home. Plenty of back up and turn around area for a rig. Very safe environment, dead-end country road with older, long time residents.

. . . And rocks!!! This is Stone County, there's rocks/stone everywhere! Imagine rock walls, rock barbques, rock mail box bases, rock patios . . . and if there's more stone than you know what to do with, there's a stone company in Timbo that will buy your rocks if you want to sell them!

DOWNSIDE TO THIS HOME . . . I want to save us both from wasting our time . . . This house is very open BUT has VERY small bedrooms and baths, best for a single person or a couple. The pond is VERY small but spring fed and could easily be enlarged . . . But SMALL, about the size of a garage. I hesitate to even mention the pond because of it's size but just as it is, it's a great attractant to wildlife if you like watching them in the evenings and it has never been dry in the 10 years that we have been here. It could be a gorgeous water feature if enlarged a little.

UPSIDE TO THIS HOME . . . Great country neighbors that are there when you need them but not 'drop-in social', absolutely no crime, enough land for a couple of horses, or chickens or a garden, enough to put a couple of rentals on and still be far enough away to never see them, a great starter home to enlarge if you wanted, no building ordinances to conform to OR a great retirement home or guest house just as it is. VERY low maintenance.

MORE PLUSES-- moving from Texas we were surprised at how inexpensive it is to live in Arkansas! It seems as if everything is cheaper-- monthly water bill is $26.00 . . . Yes, we have city/rural water way out here in the country! Trash pick-up is $25.00, electric is on average about $125.00 a month, propane heat for this house (if you want it) is less than $500 a year, taxes less than $400.00 a year and no fire department dues. Our fire department in Fox, Ar is supported by grants and a yearly, fourth-of-July fundraiser! It's quieter and there's less traffic in the country. Motorcycle riders love our winding roads and Ozark B&B's . . . Mt View even has a yearly motorcycle festival but motorcycle riders avoid our very well maintained dirt/gravel road. Another reason not to live 'in town'.

The price is $93,500.00. Absolutely no 'Rent to Own' or owner finance.
