Jordan estate description

The Blue House on the Bluff is located on one of the most beautiful spots that the Ozarks has to offer. This lovely 2,400+ square foot lake home sits on 8.50 acres in Jordan on Norfork Lake. With 3 bedrooms and 3 baths there is more than enough room for your friends and family to enjoy the privacy and the gorgeous views. Splash into the lake or follow the path down to the white sandy beach. Atop of the amazing cliff, the view is as good as it gets, and for the more daring, the excitement of jumping is a experience like no other. Just a couple of miles from Jordan Marina, lake access is moments away.

The majority of people visiting Lake Norfork admit they come here not only because the fishing is amazing; not because the clear water and warm temperature make for great water sport action; not because of the warm hospitality they get from resort owners and fishing guides; but for something they call Norfork's Tranquility. It's something about the Ozark air with it's forest scent, the lack of noise and hustle, and the freedom to let thoughts wonder through one's mind without annoying interruptions.

The sounds of nature instead of sirens, the silky air instead of heavy smog, and the all-out fun that leaves one bone-tired at the end of the day. It is hard to define. Come experience it for yourself at the most breathtaking property on Lake Norfork, The Blue House on the Bluff!

When you stay at the Blue House on the Bluff, you are not just another customer at a huge resorts. The attraction of this Norfork getaway is the advantages of an amazing house, amazing view and the uncrowded quiet of this privately owned lake house. While thousands of people enjoy Norfork Lake every year, you'd never know it. That is because the shoreline is extremely erratic as it follows the rugged Ozark ridges and valleys.

The result is coves, creek arms, and valley runs offering a thousand secluded spots just right for escaping crowds. When friends want to gather together for a day of watersport on a common shore, there is no shortage of spots to choose from. Primarily aimed at families, fishing enthusiasts, scuba divers, water sport seekers, and those who simply want to enjoy themselves. The getaway has its own personality stemming from the operational philosophy of its owners.

Guests frequently become friends. Those who consider their first trip to Norfork tend to worry about what their children will do. But after a week they find their children are very reluctant to leave! Children greatly enjoy the freedom they experience while playing in the Great Outdoors at Lake Norfork.

                      The Blue House on the Bluff is located on one of the most beautiful spots that the Ozarks has to offer. This lovely 2,451 square foot lake home sits on 8.50 acres in Jordan on Norfork Lake. It has 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, a fireplace and a 2 car garage. Splash into the lake from a bluff in the back yard, or follow the path down to the white sandy beach. Come and enjoy the privacy and the gorgeous views. Atop of the amazing cliff, the view is as good as it gets, and for the more daring, the excitement of jumping is a experience like no other. Just a couple of miles from Jordan Marina, lake access is moments away.

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About: My husband and I spent five years finding our little piece of heaven on earth. There is no place like the Blue House to take away all the stresses of every day life. We wanted a lake home for our children and grandchildren to vacation with us and we have so enjoyed our time together. In this fast paced world we live in, taking a break at the Blue House helps make life just a little bit better for all of us.

                      Why Jordan:
                      We looked at lake front properties in eight states and never thought we would end up in Arkansas. The natural beauty of the lake and shoreline, as well as the peacefulness of all of the surrounding pines were captivating. None of the other properties came close in comparison. When we walked down to the beach for the first time, a bald eagle was sitting on the shore - that magical moment sealed the deal and we knew this place was meant for us.
