A ‘Mission-style’, OLDER, ALL-BRICK, 1-LEVEL HOME — circa. 1920’s +-.

If you have dreamed of owning an older home WITH THE GRANDEUR OF HIGH CEILINGS, THE ORIGINAL MOULDINGS, AND THE ORIGINAL HARDWOOD (AND PINEWOOD) FLOORS — this 2,000+ SQUARE FOOT home may be the ‘FOREVER HOME’ you have been searching for -or- dreaming of owning.

1029 Main Street, Arkadelphia, AR 71923, is the address of this INCREDIBLE OFFERING. Please note: If I did not ALREADY own my ‘forever home’, I would be purchasing this home. It is that wonderful!

NEWER SHINGLES — and it has a SIGNIFICANT WIRING UPDATE: 3 Separate, exterior breaker boxes! Plus, there’s an ‘ALL EXTERIOR’ CH/A SYSTEM with floor vents/ducts.

THIS HOME IS ATMOSPHERIC, from the moment you walk-thru either of the two, exterior, ‘L-SHAPED’ FRONT, SCREENED PORCH entrance doors. This screened porch is concrete-floored, has a painted ‘beaded-wood’ ceiling, and MEASURES OVER 500 SQ. FT. If a Buyer wanted, you could ‘glass-in’ this screened porch. This screened, front porch is a TRULY, AWESOME FEATURE — unique to this home, being on Main Street in the downtown area of Arkadelphia (where parades go by and people still walk on sidewalks/walkways, that have been there for generations). You may be interested to know that AFTER BUSINESS HOURS, each day/evening — downtown becomes a quiet domain that is very satisfying and enriching because you can walk and exercise -or- enjoy being outside (on your large, screened front porch, for instance) watching the world go by!

The interior of this residence has MOSTLY 11′ TALL CEILINGS. There is an original fireplace with Traditional mantel in the HUGE, MAIN, LIVING ROOM. There are two, separate sets of display/bookshelves in this big room, also: One near the front door area -and- one ‘across the room’, beside the fireplace. The largest of the two sets of bookshelves/display shelves is in a big ‘alcove area’ near the front entry door that feels like a library/study area and is ideal for a desk and/or suitable seating furniture for reading/studying/working. It is a REMARKABLE SPACE!

There is a large DINING ROOM with doors to the living room and to the eat-in kitchen, of course — plus a door to the master-BR (or a guest-BR) and a door to the screened BACK PORCH, which leads to the fenced back yard. Please note: The back yard area features a BRAND NEW (in 2021) chain-link fence that is 5′ tall, with two separate gates: One on EACH side of the rear of the house. NICE! The DINING ROOM happens to boast A TALL, WOOD WAINSCOTING (over 6′ tall) with a ‘plate rack’ cornice (with two grooves for displaying plates/platters of various proportion) around the whole perimeter of the room — less and except where the windows and doorways are.

The KITCHEN is an ‘eat-in’ kitchen and is mostly as it has always been, depending on whether the original cabinetry/woodwork was stained or painted. The vinyl floor is brand new (2021), and the refrigerator is NEWER — but, nearly everything else in the kitchen, including all the cabinetry and 2 more sets of display shelves (in the breakfast area), APPEAR TO BE ORIGINAL to the house -or- at least, quite old. It is serviceable, as it is, or you can ‘gut it’ -and- do a luxury remodel.

The washer and dryer connections HAPPEN to be on the REAR SCREENED PORCH, which is wood floored. The rear screened porch is a service porch, with cabinetry, the main electrical breaker box (1 of 3), and the laundry connections. Plus, it also has a ‘beaded wood’ ceiling! This rear screened porch measures approx. 14′ x 10′ (the same approx. size of the fabulous sunroom/dressing room located off of the real master bedroom — which happens to be adjacent to the big dining room).

The MASTER BEDROOM features a private, FULL BATHROOM with original pedestal sink AND the master bedroom’s focal point is an adjoining SUNROOM/DRESSING ROOM accessed by interior french doors with a transom above (fairly ELABORATE), a wall of closets, AND TWO WALLS OF WINDOWS — pretty, Pretty, PRETTY!

There are two more bedrooms and one more bathroom. There is a MASSIVE BEDROOM on the front of the house, off of the living room. And there is a smaller, GUEST BEDROOM in the middle part of the house, off of the living room. The massive bedroom CAN BE a master-BR (if you wish, but it is not the real master-BR). This biggest bedroom features a large window seat — three windows wide! The shared, FULL, GUEST BATHROOM has a CEDAR-LINED, WALK-IN CLOSET located directly across the hall (from the bathroom door). This same walk-in closet has a large storage cabinet ABOVE IT (a ladder is required), for seldom used items. Remember, the ceilings are 11′ tall. Great storage space! The smaller, middle, guest bedroom has an exposed ‘wood-plank’ ceiling (which happens to be newer, 4′ x 8′ sheets of wood paneling — but, it’s an attractive feature, visually)!

BOTH bathrooms have BRAND NEW, TALLER HEIGHT COMMODES. Both bathrooms have glass block windows (which are ‘Art Deco’ oriented, from the 1920 period — but, a whole other style, than the Mission-style atmosphere of Subject Property’s exterior). I do not know ‘when’ these glass block windows were installed, over the years — but they are nice and well done! Whoever purchases this home will want to spend money in BOTH bathrooms. They have not seen a ‘big’ remodel, ever, to my knowledge, other than BOTH glass block windows and BOTH brand new commodes.

ALMOST the entire interior has new paint, simply because the Owner of the Property ‘moved’ back into the house, earlier this spring (for a few months) before moving to assisted living. The present Owner has owned this home for 45 years +-, and has occupied this home as a principal residence, ‘off and on’ for various periods of time. It was a rental home (during their ownership) for over 30 years because they built a new principal residence on large acreage in a country setting in 1990+-, where the Owner lived until the Spring of 2021, before ‘coming home’ to 1029 Main Street, Arkadelphia.

1029 Main Street, Arkadelphia, is an AWESOME, FABULOUS, REMARKABLE residence for anyone who loves the rich, spacious, palatial atmosphere that TALL CEILINGS evoke!

Outside, you will also be interested to know a ‘mostly gravel’ driveway extends the DEPTH OF THE LOT — along the East side of the Property, from the street to the rear, Southeast corner of the Property. There is a partial amount of concrete and a single, attached, ‘drive-thru’ carport beside the front, ‘L-shaped’ screened porch -and- a rear covered shed of sorts, at the Southeast rear corner of the Property (outside the chain-link fenced back yard).

Immediate occupancy upon ‘Closing’! Come SEE, come BUY! Priced NEWLY REDUCED $4,500. — from $139,450. to $134,950.! Call Wes Reeder, cell 870-210-1020 or office 870-246-2406. Or, you may call Laura Schweinle, cell 417-860-4170 or home 501-865-6482. Call today -and- we’ll look today!
