About the property

Your own private paradise with 7 ft gated walls encompassing huge house and pool

The house has FIVE BEDROOMS, and FIVE FULL BATHROOMS! There are two King beds, three queen beds, and two twin beds, and two queen size quick blow up mattresses! FOUR bedrooms have private full baths. The 5th full bath has a huge walk-in shower that can be accessed by the fifth bedroom off the huge den adjacent to the 40x20 pool. There is a 70-inch TV in one den, and a 65-inch TV in the second den, and TVs in four of the five bedrooms. THERE IS WIFI THROUGHOUT!

This amazing totally private 5,000 sq ft house has a series of walled courtyards which creates a beautiful Mediterranean villa with 5 bedrooms/5 baths on 7 private acres with 188 feet on the LAKE HAMILTON MAIN CHANNEL, with a fishing/swimming dock, and TWO BOAT stalls. This is NOT a condo with shared grounds, lake access, and pool. It IS a totally private house and property and with 7 acres--guarantees no close neighbors. You will be in your own totally private paradise retreat.

This amazing 7-acre lake property has never been available for rental. It is a 5,000 sq ft gated Mediterranean style villa enclosed with 7 ft stucco walls for total privacy--yet in the middle of everything! The house is 1/4 mile from Hwy 70 W and the MLK Expressway, 1 mile from the Hot Springs airport. Quick access to all business and entertainment--yet in your own private world.

There is a 40x20 sports pool off back patio that is fenced for total privacy. There are a series of four courtyard surrounding the house for privacy or intimacy. The East courtyard has a flagstone patio and cafe seating for privacy it is off one of the guest bedrooms also, the South courtyard contains a long covered porch with a 6x10 granite table, a bar area, a propane gas grill and a charcoal grill. It is a 25x35 ft area that looks out onto a bench/swing that is fun for all ages. The North patio has a flagstone path from the garage entrance and a small covered porch with rocking chairs and a tropical fan for a small get away area, the West courtyard, contains a long covered porch with a four seat table, and additional comfortable seating and two ceiling looks out onto the pool area. The pool has a 6 ft wooden fence for total privacy.

The house is large with three common gathering areas including a formal living room, a sunken living room off the dining room/kitchen area, and a huge 1,000 sq ft den that leads to the pool. All floors are Travertine, hardwood, or other words, the house is designed for casual living. I designed this house for lake living without worry about carpet. I placed a full-size refrigerator in the den (also has a sink and wine refrigerator) for quick access to a cool drink from the pool area. The den leads directly to the pool.

About Dr. Linda Heard

I am a professional writer that greatly enjoys the private beauty of this lake house estate. With its location on Lake Hamilton, and proximity to the by pass (1/4 mile) I have the best of all worlds in that I can either work in necessary isolation, and within 5 minutes be at the Mall, or downtown at the bathhouses or to Oaklawn Race track! I love this place and I love Hot Springs, Arkansas.

Dr. Linda Heard purchased this estate in 2002

Why Dr. Linda Heard chose Hot Springs

Because it is a large property (7 acres) on Lake Hamilton, which allows for total privacy and yet 1/4 mile from 70W and the MLK bypass for quick access to--everywhere in Hot Springs.

What makes this estate unique

Lake, private pool, huge house, gated for privacy............has it all.

Great large space for families and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We held our annual family trip with our three children and four grandchildren at this house. It was perfect for us with plenty of space to be together or just have alone time as well. The pool was a great addition and provide hours of entertainment for both young and old. It was a bit of a hike to the dock but excellent lake access and close to waterfront dinning. The owner was quick to respond and very helpful. Perfect family trip!

I highly recommend this property!

  • 5 of 5

This property provides all the privacy, comfort, and space you could possibly need. We loved all the separate living areas and multiple places to sit and visit outside. All the kids were interested in was the large pool. We loved the location as well. We are hoping to rent this property again!

Excellant Family Accomodations / All the Comforts of Home

  • 5 of 5

This property can easily accommodate 17 guest. Loved that all but one bedroom had it's own private bath. The large open floor plan was suited for continuous family interaction. At the entrance to the property is a large courtyard with a covered patio area that's great for outside family gatherings. There is also a smaller private courtyard off one of the bedrooms. The large pool and deck area was perfect for a family BBQ. The entertainment room has an enormous television and blue ray DVD that was excellant for movie night. There is also a refrigerator and wine cooler in this room. While the young adults were able to enjoy game night in the entertainment room, the rest of the family settled into the smaller den for television and conversation. There is also a lovely living room area perfect for relaxing with a good book and hot tea. The fully-

equipped kitchen has a large gas oven, a beautiful Samsung side-by-side Refrigerator and all the cooking utensil you need. We prepared buffet-style breakfast each morning.

Our tourists attractions were limited, because the weather conditions were not on our side. Nonetheless, there weren't many complaints. This house made it easy to simply enjoy being with one another.

My property

This house is on the main channel of Lake Hamilton with TWO boat docks. This house is within one mile of the Hot Springs Airport, 1/4 mile from Hwy 70 W. and the MLK Expressway, and is a private 7 acre gated estate on Lake Hamilton by the 70 West Bridge convenient to restaurants, and all Hot Springs attractions within minutes. Unique in that is a totally private estate, yet, right in the middle of everything you'd come to Hot Springs to experience.
