Southern Living® Idea House - For Sale

If you're in the market for a luxury new home with all of the latest innovations in homebuilding, The Southern Living Idea House may be the right choice for you. This masterpiece in architecture and modern amenities is now for sale, and the luxury of this new home is unbelievable!

If first impressions are everything, then the foyer of this approximately 5,800 square-foot luxury new home certainly makes a statement. The sweeping spiral staircase draws the eye upward to a landing. The brick, laid in a herringbone pattern on the floor, echoes the exterior brickwork. Space beneath the staircase was transformed into a walk-in wine closet. Its custom wrought iron door matches the house's front doors.

The lower level of the luxury new home includes a formal but welcoming dining room that exudes hospitality.

A round table sets a more casual tone. Both the Italian dining table and French buffet are from Cobblestone & Vine in Little Rock. A study pays homage to Hot Spring's local racing culture with paintings of racehorses, silver trophies and cigar-themed accessories.

Impressive sight lines are signature elements of this house. From the front door, guests walk down a long gallery and through two arches to the family room. Shades of terra-cotta and butter create a warm, inviting atmosphere. A high-backed sofa and plenty of comfy armchairs are arranged around the fireplace, the room's focal point.

The expansive granite-topped island takes center stage in the country-French styled kitchen. Doors conceal a pull-out recycling area and shallow adjustable shelving perfect for storing spices. Located in the rear corner of the first floor, a home office features a writing desk, sitting area and sewing nook.

Balancing masculine and feminine elements, the master suite has everything a couple wants — privacy, space and soothing décor. Luxuriously spacious, the master bath leads to a dream walk-in closet.

Designed as a casual play and relaxation space, the upstairs game room is a place that kids can call their own. In addition, the media room accommodates a flat-screen TV for movie buffs. This room features a snack bar and beverage center, along with a granite-topped bar.

A brick terrace defines an outdoor living room. An open-air kitchen and covered porch extend the living space to the garden. A brick fireplace makes the sitting area usable in all seasons. The cedar arbor houses an alfresco dining space. Outdoor enthusiasts will also enjoy a stargazing garden with a natural stone water feature, a children's play area with soft border foliage, an herb garden and a perennial cutting garden.
