    This place is gorgeous. Even the carpet is okay with me. I like the pattern and the color of it. The whole place is cozy.

    There’s another square piano! I think I recognize the wallpaper and frieze from the Bradbury & Bradbury catalog.
    Very effective Craftsman-style stair and entry hall.

    That piece above the table in the kitchen looks to be the mantel of a fire place.

    I guess maybe in Iowa you want that cozy carpet in the winter or something. Even in the dining room though? No kids obviously! Gorgeous house, and in one of my favorite states!

    Another “pack my bag I’m moving” house. I’ve been to and through Iowa. I’d have to tell bad jokes to live there. It’s a corny state! See what I did there? LOL

    Simply stunning. I adore how the interior design respects the traditional but includes the modern to allow the home comforts we all expect. The woodwork is simply fantastic.

    Love the house, the wall-to-wall not so much…

    Not only a pretty house but the inside furnishings tell a story too. Love this site!

    The only thing I hate about this grand, old home is the fact that they covered up
    the hardwood floors with carpeting. Otherwise, I wouldn’t change a thing!

    Lots of carpet to remove, but not lots of wood to strip! That’s a huge plus. But does the third floor not come with the house? It says it’s a “2 floor” house when it clearly shows 3 floors from the exterior. I hope you don’t inherit a creepy something that lives on the 3rd floor and denies you access! 😉

    There’s not a lot I don’t like about this house. And the price, what is it about Iowa and big houses that are priced so affordable.

    JD, Iowa is among a group of Midwestern states with bargain priced old houses. Although Waterloo has over 68,000 population there is a declining demographic pattern in recent decades which weakens housing demand and real estate prices. In small Iowa towns, this wonderful, well maintained house would be priced even less but here its still in bargain territory. Stylistically, it is a Colonial/Classical Revival style house with both exterior and interior details reflecting those styles. I’m also wondering if this might be one of George F. Barber’s later “Colonial Renaissance” designs?

    So, the old Hannah house is for sale…..the family who lived here in the nineties did looooots of work and didn’t skimp on anything! While I lost contact with them through the years I am proud to have gotten to know them, and anyone who lives in this place will well learn their dedication to doing things right!

    I love it; would not change a thing. This is my old house dream. Not a detail unattended to.

    I adore this house. I am wondering if the photos have been artificially tweaked/sharpened/high detailed. WISH they had the attic and basement photos somewhere. I keep wondering if I can just truck this across the country- it’s a beaut!

    Love this home! Just wish it was closer!

    Like I said this IS my dream home. I find nothing I do not like about it . Unfortunately it is only a dream for an old retired cowboy on SS fixed income. I do have Vet Benefits to buy a home but by the time I arrange that I feel this one will be sold. What a beautiful home.!!!
