This extraordinary estate, dubbed Dromborg Castle, is located at 2991 South City Lake Road in Fayetteville, AR. It was built in 2008 by Masonry Construction. It replicates a Scottish castle and was built with varying architectural styles, which add to its authentic look. In some areas, the home looks 500 years old; in some places it appears to be 300 years old, and 100 years old in others.
For almost three years, a team of 12 to 24 masons was onsite. They built the home with 4 million pounds of stone, and used another 1 million pounds in the landscaping. The stone was collected from an 800-acre area just south of the jobsite.
This 13,000+ square foot rusticated castle is nestled within one hundred wooded acres with spectacular views overlooking the Ozark Mountains. Magnificent iron gates open through beautifully crafted stone walls to the private driveway which gracefully winds up the mountain to the estate. This opulent home provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy privately or to entertain on a grand scale. Each room is detailed to perfection including exquisite hand-carved and hand-rubbed moldings, deeply fluted columns, coffered ceilings, antique lighting, and high ceilings. The entire breadth of the home exemplifies the unique essence of luxury and majesty. Upon entering the massive White Oak Dutch door, a sense of warmth and comfort permeates the opulence of this beautiful home, boasting a dining room with seating for 14+, a formal sitting area, kitchen and breakfast area. Chefs will appreciate the vast array of commercial grade appliances found in the richly detailed and efficiently designed kitchen.
