HISTORIC HOME: Huckabee house in North Little Rock is listed for sale.
  • HISTORIC HOME: Huckabee house in North Little Rock is listed for sale.

Just noted on real estate listings:

The home in North Little Rock's Shady Valley to which Mike Huckabee moved after he left the Governor's Mansion in early 2007 is up for sale for $850,000. They paid $525,000 when they bought it in 2006, but reportedly have done some improvements.

The county assessor appraises the house at $448,650, however, with an annual tax bill of $5,993. It's no longer carried with a homestead exemption, as it was until sometime after we noted the Huckabees were no longer legal residents of Arkansas.

It's at 1134 Silverwood Trail, North Little Rock. The Huckabees, you may recall, built a $3 million beach home near Destin that is their primary residence. He votes in Florida, which doesn't have a state income tax, and has some of the office and gear necessary for his radio/Fox News/speaking business there.

The listing from Adkins, McNeill, Smith says the house has 5 bedrooms and 5 baths, with almost 6,500 square feet on 1.13 acres and a pool. Description:

Wonderful home w/ lots of extras & updates. 3 liv areas w/wonderful den on main has built-ins. Kit w/new granite & appliances, island, lots of cab space & brkfst rm. MBR is spacious. MBA completely updated w/walkin shower, 2 vanities, coffeebar, 2 walkin closets & builtins. Down has den, BR &...

I don't know if the sale indicates a total end to Arkansas ties for the Huckabees — he has kids and grandkids here — or whether another pied a terre might be in the cards. I've sent a note to the family, but our communications are kind of spotty at best.
