Arguably one of Arkansas’ premiere estate properties, Dromborg Castle is the result of a talented team of architects, designers and builders who were commissioned to create the dream home of Bruce and Joan Johnson. No expense spared in the design, construction and finishing, the result, nothing short of spectacular, has been a happy place where friends & family have gathered and doubled as a venue to host philanthropic events for up to 200 guests. Dromborg Castle was originally on the market as much as $15 million before dropping to $8.7 million. After a failed auction in 2019, the castle remained on the market briefly for a discounted $4.9 million. It relisted for $5.5 million in September 2019 and was recently reduced to $4.78 million.
Completed in 2008 with more than 4,000 tons of rock, the Dromborg’s design aesthetic was inspired by Scottish castles of the 13th century. The towering castle offers over 13,000 square feet of space with 5 bedrooms, 4 full & 1 half bathrooms, and a substantial 2,200 square foot great room with dining area for 14+, sitting areas, a gourmet kitchen and breakfast nook. White River engineered and manufactured all millwork, mouldings, corbels and doors. A 770 square foot library is finished with natural Cherry, 12 Corinthian columns, custom cabinets and 3 pairs of French doors leading to a loggia and patio, while a fourth floor 70-foot observation deck takes in 300-degree views of 70% undeveloped forest and farmland. Few homes come close to the quality and level of detail that you will see at Dromborg. World class musicians have been invited to play within the walls of Dromborg, including Fayetteville’s own Jura Margulis who played a Bechstein grand piano for guests. Dromborg Castle is on the market for $4.78 million with Katherine Hudson of Keller Williams.
