Garden Cottages

CONWAY, Ark. (October 2, 2012) – The Village at Hendrix will soon unveil a new housing option called Garden Cottages designed by Lew Oliver, Inc.

Located east of Market Square at Ellis and Sanders streets, a total of nine Garden Cottages will be built in two phases.

Three available floor plans include a 1,048-sq.ft. single-story two bedroom, one bath Craftsman-style model and two two-story models with two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms at 1,368- and 1,397-square-feet depending on the master bedroom location.

“The garden cottages are a great option for anyone ready for a low-maintenance, energy efficient home right in the middle of a neighborhood packed with social and cultural amenities,” said Village CEO Ward Davis. “It’s for the person who’s ready to embrace freedom and spend time doing what he loves.”

The cottages will feature beautiful landscaping and lawns maintained by The Village. Residents can enjoy a discounted membership to the Wellness and Athletic Center at Hendrix, as well as convenient access to the cultural opportunities at the College.
