    Another Iowa beauty! I could only hope the Mustang in the driveway come with the house!

    I love all the cute little stained glass windows in all the rooms. They look like little Christmas lights bordering the window frames.

    The home is in fine shape why no bathroom photos? Cabinets over the peninsula got to go.

      I don’t think so. I like a lots of cabinet space. And, I am one of those types that likes closed rooms too. I don’t like the open look of many modern houses and remodeled old ones. I believe the cabinets separate the rooms and give it character like an older house.

        This is one of the reasons I love a Butler’s Pantry. Great storage tucked away in a separate little room. This house seems to have lots of possibilities.

    A period kitchen remodel would improve this property. I love smallbone kitchens

    An older form of the Queen Anne style here with fewer of the Colonial/Classical Revival details that came to dominate the style in the later 1890’s until the style faded away after 1910. The windows with the colored paned borders were a defining characteristic of the earlier Queen Anne style-they get quite a workout in this home’s design. Somewhat unusual as well to see a Palladian tri-partite window in the gable (a Classical Revival detail) combined with the Queen Anne bordered windows. I (barely) noticed patterned parquet floors in at least two of the rooms. If it were my house, the wall-to-wall carpeting would have to go replaced with wood floors and area rugs. I like that classic 60’s Mustang as well…maybe the buyer could negotiate it being sold with the house? Lots of potential here.
