440 Catherine Park Road, Hot Springs, Arkansas 71913
Gated Diamondhead Resort, an All Ages Community in Lush Central Arkansas, Sits Along Pretty Lake Catherine and Boasts Plenty of Water Recreation
Hot Springs is tucked in lush central Arkansas and is a popular tourist destination. Not too far outside of town limits and along the shores of pretty, 1,900-acre Lake Catherine, Diamondhead Resort is a 2,300-acre, all ages community that appeals to retirees (in fact, 40% of residents are retired). It is gated, amenity-rich and has an 18-hole, PGA-sanctioned golf course.
Started in 1969, today Diamondhead has four neighborhoods, including the Blue Moon Bay section, which has single level, maintenance free residences. Other homes come in all shapes and sizes, from condominiums and garden homes to single family residences. Homes are for lease and for sale. Most dwellings sit on wooded lots, and many overlook the lake or the golf course. Newer residences are built "green" and are energy-efficient. Prices start at less than $100,000 and reach into the $500,000s. Please verify these prices with a Realtor as they may change. The community has 615 homes (1,800 people), but lots along the lake, the golf course and in the woods are still for sale. HOA fees are very reasonable.
The 72-par golf course features five ponds, moderate traps and challenging fairways. It is where many a retired resident is found on weekdays and weekends. Another eleven golf courses are in the surrounding Hot Springs area.
Diamondhead has plenty of amenities for non-golfers, too. The tennis courts and the Olympic-sized pool are popular. The lake, which is eleven miles long, is a favorite spot and has a private marina and boat dock. Another four nearby lakes provide more opportunities for fishing, boating and water skiing. Residents also enjoy a variety of planned activities and groups, including aerobics classes, bingo nights, a bridge club and more.
Diamondhead is also adjacent to Lake Catherine State Park, where hiking trails, waterfalls and an abundance of wildlife create a quiet getaway close to home.
Hot Springs has four general hospitals, including CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs Center. It is accredited by the Joint Commission and accepts Medicare patients.
This area has four seasons. Summers are hot and humid with temperatures in the 80s and 90s. Winter temperatures are in the 30s and 40s. On average, the area receives 56 inches of rain and a dusting of snow each year. The tornado risk is 200% above the national average.
