One of my favorite history houses sells again. 501 E Race, Searcy Arkansas

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Advantage

The newspaper reported that 501 East Race is going to become the home of White County Children's Safety Center, an organization in its second year of operation of supporting children who may be victims of child abuse or neglect.

The house was built in 1929.  The original owner died in approximately 2003 and I had the house listed when it sold the first time.  I always loved the house.  It was so charming with an oozy brick exterior.  Look at this brickwork.  There is probably a real name for this brick work but I can't remember it.  What's wrong with "oozy?"

OOZY brick

The front used to have large trees in the yard but they've been removed.  At least you can now see the front of the house better.

Here's an old MLS photo from a few years back.  The columns in the East sunroom were awesome.  I'm not sure what happened to them.  Possibly the owners were trying to remove the enclosure windows and something didn't work right.   I hope the new owners can restore them to look more like this picture.

501 E Race

Best wishes to the White County Children's Safety Center and thanks for buying a history house.

What a beutiful home. Would be interesting to compare the list price when you first listed it vs the price on this listing???

Barbara - that's a common style, here in the midwest, and is commonly referred to as "weeping mortar".

Ruth, somewhere in the 80's vs somewhere in the 140's, I think.  It is commercial.

Alan, it is rare here but that sounds like a good sad name for it.  A happier name would be oozy mortar.  Is it harder to do than regular mortar?

I don't really know if it's harder... it sure looks like it would be really easy when you're first laying the brick... but perhaps much harder, when re-tuckpointing 20 years later...?
