    Lovely home, with many original features, at a reasonable price. Aerial map shows a large park a block away. Aerial also indicates a shared driveway. Garage photo only shows half of the garage so it’s probably shared too. We once had a similar situation. It was fine until the neighbors sold their house to real jerks. Something to check into.

    I don’t think this house is Stickley, but there is a Stickley plan with a very similar fireplace quasi-inglenook. It looks like a wonderful place to read a book. I’d really love to open up the front porch on this beautiful house.

    I love this style! Now, please humor me? The living and dining rooms and kitchen appear to have 9 foot celings. Don’t the 2 first floor bedrooms look like they have lowered the ceilings and have some type of ceiling tiles? I love 9 foot ceilings,so thought the bedrooms looked cramped.

      Yup. Awful 2’x4′ suspended ceiling tiles, dropped to barely over 7′ in one bedroom and less than 8′ in another. Fairly easily remedied, unless they did it to hide some horrible new ductwork or something.

      In this very old well kept house the ceilings were dropped 35+ years ago in the two bedrooms. If you get a chance to visit the house you can peek above them to see the original ceilings with crown molding. The original ceilings will need a little patch work and scrapped. We believe they dropped the ceilings to be more energy efficient with heating and cooling, that was before more insulation was added. It does make the rooms feel cozy but will also look better to have the original ceilings back. No Ductwork to hide.

    I’m in love! It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a craftsman that has swept me off my feet. If this cutie wasn’t in Iowa, I’d buy it up in a heartbeat!

    Absolutely in love with the dining room built-ins.

    Love all the built ins and the wood work!

    Just love the wood and built-ins I’ve come to expect from Craftsman houses. But have to say I was very disappointed that the bathrooms were changed from the usual tile work we usually see that I adore so much! It would be a must-have for me in this otherwise beautiful house.

    I Have never seen windows like that in the bedroom ??

    Some very interesting woodwork in this one–I’ve not seen a buffet like that before and, of course, the inglenook is gorgeous.
