I wear two hats with different names: Madison Woods when I’m wearing the artist hat, Roxann Riedel in real life and real estate. I'm a rock-smashing paint-making artist & a sales agent for Montgomery Whiteley Realty. Hailing from the wild Ozarks in Kingston, Arkansas where my husband and I work toward a sustainable lifestyle.

Sustainable Lifestyle Property near Green Forest, Arkansas

Here’s a beautiful home near Green Forest, Arkansas, in a rural setting. It has everything you need for that sustainable lifestyle property you’ve always dreamed of: live water from a year-round spring, forests all around, solar setup, garden, shop, and a very fine house. If you’re into permaculture, green living, or you’re a survivalist who doesn’t want to live far from town, this property has features to consider.

Price: 685,000

MLS #1247556


A necessity for keeping tools, projects, and vehicles protected. This property supplies room for them all.

A Buffer Zone

Enough acreage to use what you need of it, but enough to leave a buffer zone of forests to completely surround you, providing privacy and shelter from the outside world.

Sustainable Lifestyle Property

What makes a sustainable lifestyle? And what kind of property makes it possible? It means being able to provide most of your inputs for yourself, like food, water, and electricity, for example.

Unless you want remote, it doesn’t mean you can’t be a short driving distance to a town with amenities. This property near Green Forest is only ten or fifteen minutes away from hardware stores, feed stores, groceries, and fuel.


If true sustainability is your interest, the presence of a water source is of the utmost importance. With a live, year-round spring and two ample holding tanks (1500 gallon and 1000 gallons at home level), this property fits the bill. There is also rural water available as an option, but the homestead currently operates on the spring water.

There’s also a creek.


A place to grow a garden helps to offset the grocery bills. The more you can grow and provide at home, the more sustainable your home becomes.

There’s already a nice garden space on the 29 acres, but there’s room for more if you desire, though you might need to cut some trees, or take up lawn. Or practice forest gardening, instead.


Solar installations vary in how much they’ll do to, depending on how it’s configured. This home has a solar array, with a Generac generator in case of power outage. It tests and updates itself once a week.

I don’t have the details on this system yet, but if you’re interested in this property, I’ll find out more about it.

This system, including the generator, is wholly owned and will convey with the home.
