One of the largest privately owned homes in Little Rock’s upscale Quapaw Quarter Historic District has come on the market for $895,000 making it the most expensive home currently for sale in the area. It was originally built between c.1884-85 as a red brick Queen Anne for realtor W. J. Turner, it was extensively remodelled into the Craftsman we see today in c.1917 for Gus Lyon, vice-president of a wholesale hardware company. The home is centrally located on a lush 0.34-acre property just minutes from downtown Little Rock and directly across the street from the official residence of the Governor of Arkansas making this a unique property all around. It’s known as the Turner-Back House and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. With a little over 6,600 square feet the home shows off a beautiful blend of original architectural craftsmanship & modern livability throughout numerous informal & formal dining and living rooms. There is an updated kitchen complete with marble island, two ovens, and a gas cooktop, as well as 14-foot ceilings, a formal entrance with grand staircase, and more fireplaces than you can count! There are a total of 5 bedrooms & 4 bathrooms throughout the home, as well as an unfinished attic which could potentially be finished.
