Green Gables Log Home
Read more about Green Gables Log Home
Log homes and the great outdoors go together, whether hiking, hunting, biking, or fishing...what is more fitting than coming home to the rustic beauty of a log house? The location of the Green Gables Log Home, adjacent to the Little Red River, one of Arkansas's blue-ribbon trout streams, is a great example of the log home lifestyle.
This family had always been fascinated with the beauty of a “real” log cabin and began to look for the perfect site to build their dream home. They found the spot tucked at the end of a long road in Heber Springs, AR. Now that they had their land, it was time to find the perfect lodgings to construct on it. With a large family, the home was planned with function at the forefront.
Visitors are welcomed into the home through the kitchen and adjacent informal dining space. A casual entryway is accessed from the garage, conveniently located by the mudroom and laundry room. Also located on the first floor is an office with a connected full bath, allowing for flexibility in the room’s use. Continuing the tour of the first floor, an expansive master bedroom includes a large walk-in closet and spacious ensuite.
On the second floor, the loft is also perfect for a home office, play area, or, as the family decided, an additional sleeping area with bunk beds. There are 3 more bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms on this floor as well. One of these could easily be considered a second master bedroom since it includes its own private bathroom.
In addition to the overall layout of the home, the homeowners added several special features to make the home truly unique. A king post truss using ten-inch logs creates an impressive and welcoming approach to the home. A soaring 27’ fireplace in the great room framed by large windows makes for impressive views both inside and outside the home. The oversized antler chandelier, Aspen log stair railing, and hand-scraped wood flooring all add to the rustic quality of the home. One of the final touches was the Sherwood Green scalloped roof from which the house got its name. Green Gables is a wonderful example of all you can do with a log home!
