Winter Dreams Tour of Homes – Steinmetz Home, U of A Chancellor’s Home, 523 North Razorback Rd., Fayetteville


Completed in 2008, the Wallace W. and Jama M. Fowler House was designed by Polk Stanley Rowland Curzon Porter Architects, Ltd. and constructed by Flintco, Inc. Judith G. Snowden and Christy Davis were the interior designers, with the exterior grounds designed by Landscape Architecture, Inc. The approximately 9,000 square foot Fowler House is located on the campus near the corner of Maple Street and Razorback Road on a four-acre plot of land purchased by the University System in 1964 for $45,000.

The design of the house reflects a classical hillside villa, with all major public spaces opening to a central rotunda. The handicap accessible, multiple-level home contains elegant and comfortable furnishings, a regular kitchen and a professional catering kitchen, breakfast room and formal dining room, two offices, wood-paneled library/study, formal living room, and family den all located on the first floor.

The granite counter tops in the kitchen, butler’s pantry and serving bar have the Giblee granite. The second floor has a master suite, sitting room, exercise room, and guest rooms.

The marble bath vanity tops are the Crema Marfil marble. All of the counter tops came from Artistic Tile, Marble & Granite. The blue and green interior paint colors are Benjamin Moore and the cream color paint is a Sherwin Williams. Fowler House features cream and black marble and hardwood floors from Ozark Floor Company, as well as a stunning view of the UofA and the distant Boston Mountains.
