Panoramic Riverfront Living! This one-of-a-kind property offers an idyllic setting right at the bank of the Arkansas River, with over an acre of land and over 300 feet of grassy riverfront. As you drive down the driveway, the rest of the world fades away and you are in your own private retreat. This gem of a home has spacious views of the river from every room. Across the river are thousands of acres of public land with no development, just endless views of nature in the surrounding foothills. The deck offers a full 180 view of the river and surroundings, with hardly another home in sight. This home was built as a family retreat and expanded as a retirement home, and has never been on the market before. If you want to go to sleep every night and wake up every morning to the sound of the river, then this home is your dream. Start your mornings walking its banks, and share your meals overlooking its timeless beauty. The home features an open plan, with the kitchen and family room well connected. The living room features a fireplace built from local river rocks. The large first floor master suite makes for easy living. The two upstairs bedrooms provide room for guests or other family members, with a private second floor balcony. With the attached carport, the 1-1/2 car garage provides additional space for a shop and storage. "Dos Piedras" was the name given to this special property, recognizing the two enormous rocks which feature prominently on the property, flanking the view of the river. The private garden between the rocks features a picnic table and pergola for quiet moments with filtered shade. The mature landscaping includes evergreens, rock gardens, driftwood and cactus gardens. The property features easy access to Highway 50, but is very private. The setting of the home down by the river, combined with the large embankment and rock features, provides a buffer from the road. Rafting, kayaking and fishing are right at your doorstep!
