              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1995

              About the owner: Jim was born in Arkansas and when he had the opportunity to return in 1995, we were excited about the move. We never dreamed we'd end up in such a beautiful spot!

              Why the Owner Chose Eureka Springs:
              We were on our way to meet with our realtor to make an offer on another home when we saw a 'FOR SALE BY OWNER' sign. We decided to take a quick look. The couple who owned this home was on their way to church and encouraged us to go ahead and look at the property. Our kids didn't want to leave! Suddenly, we knew that the other house would never be home and that this was where we belonged. We met with the realtor and explained the situation...this kind man actually encouraged us to purchase the river home!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This home has been the perfect place to raise a family and entertain friends. We've enjoyed seeing the seasons come and go and the changing beauty of the river throughout the year. The glory of the mountains, the fresh air, the peace of the gets into your soul!
