About Town

Home with a View

Photography by DERO SANFORD


Nestled on the edge of West Little Rock along Cobblestone Way, this home offers serenity + seclusion with the convenience of city amenities. The Ranch boasts rolling hills and large lots with breathtaking views of Pinnacle Mountain and Arkansas wildlife. 

Mike Kirby and Ron Carter are the proprietors of Made in the Shade of Little Rock. The couple shares a wealth of experience in home construction and interior design. Mike provides practical installation advice and Ron offers expert design perspective. 

Considered “an oversized pool house,” Ron hopes it feels comfortable and clean with attention to detail that beckons gracious hospitality. The interior features exposed beams and cool hardwood floors that complement the neutral palette – creating a relaxed atmosphere ideal for entertaining. The open floor plan has defined spaces that reflect old-world character with contemporary sophistication. 

Nature blends seamlessly into the couple’s lifestyle with poolside outdoor living that celebrates the landscape. A bounty of windows provides an abundance of natural light bringing the outdoors inside, another key consideration in the design of the home. Rustic-inspired décor adorns the linear architecture.
