The country life has never been so elegantly packaged! This week's dream home started out as a 19th-century farmhouse and was ingeniously transformed into a mountaintop manor in 1922. 

Listed at just $1,195,000, the property at 120 Maple Ridge Lane in Hot Springs boasts seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, and two powder rooms for over 8,000 square feet of living space. The surrounding lot is 21.2 acres of woodland and pastures.

The dramatic lines of pristine white columns highlight the classic design of the home. A generous portico wraps around the front, creating the perfect space to enjoy cool breezes while you wait to welcome your guests. Mint julep, anyone?

Inside, the entryway is dominated by a sweeping staircase, perfect for making a grand entrance.

Living spaces are made cozier by paneled walls and gentle light from shaded sconces. The sunroom is a great option for afternoon tea or just lounging with a book.

No expense was spared in the fully renovated kitchen. State-of-the-art appliances blend seamlessly with custom woodwork and sleek counters.

Upstairs, the master bedroom suite is positively cavernous. The master bath features a claw foot tub for the ultimate in relaxation.

Just because the house is over a century old doesn't mean you have to sacrifice the modern comforts. A lovely backyard pool is there for sunning yourself and swimming whenever you'd like. The adjacent pool house is perfect for entertaining or just changing after your morning laps.
