A greenery enterprise in Little Rock and related properties are backing a $2.46 million mortgage. Paul Allen Smith Jr. and his Smithfield Properties LLLP got the loan from Centennial Bank of Conway.

The loan is secured by Smith's 567-acre Garden Home Retreat project at 23800 Ross Hollow Road in west Pulaski County. The acreage was assembled in three transactions totaling $2.2 million.

The sellers were The Robert G. Cress Trust, 250 acres for $1.2 million in August 2004; Charles Gray Jr. and his wife, Judy, 256 acres for $868,000 in June 2004; and Soterra LLC of Jackson, Miss., an affiliate of Greif Brothers Corp. of Delaware, Ohio, 61 acres for $153,000 in April 2005.

The property also was linked with a September 2005 mortgage of $792,000 held by Bank of Little Rock and December 2008 mortgages of $2 million held by Ethel W. Foley of Columbus, Ga., and $935,000 held by Centennial Bank.

Other debt associated with the rural land includes a September 2005 mortgage of $792,000 and an April 2005 mortgage of $150,000 held by Bank of Little Rock and a December 2008 mortgage of $935,000 held by Centennial Bank of Conway. Additional property securing the new Centennial mortgage includes:
