    Such a great, elegant home that is totally move in ready. Love the ceiling height n staircase. It seems like IA, IL, IN and OH got a lot of these Italianate homes built 1870–90s, so lucky.

    Stunning, well done. The unmatchable craftsmanship of years past ready for today’s living. There may even be a USB port we can’t see…!

    What a beautiful home! Those kitchen cabinets are the tallest that I believe I have ever seen-I’m tall and I would need a ladder! Everything is so lovely in this house and the yard is so spacious. I just love this!

    Something very special here, with elegance and comfort in abundance. And oh those Italianate staircases. Beautiful house in a beautiful little town in a beautiful part of southern Iowa. Tempting. This home has been deeply loved.

    Take a look at the courthouse in town: “The Second Empire structure is an example of post-Civil War architecture known as ‘General Grant Gothic.'[4] It is surrounded by a 300-square-foot (28 m2) landscaped park. The two-story building measures 97 by 87 feet (30 m × 27 m).[5] Its 16-inch (41 cm) brick walls are faced with Bedford stone. The building features a mansard roof, a cupola that serves as both a bell and clock tower, roof cresting, bracketed eaves, and Bedford stone-strimmed windows. The central tower is a wood structure that is topped by a statue of the goddess of Justice. It is visible from miles away, and it is the focal point for the community.[2]”

    We drive through Bloomfield often on our way to Ottumwa from NE MO. It is the typical, picturesque, quaint, small Midwestern town. There are many lovely old homes and, yes, that amazing court house. I must also recommend Centerville IA for the same quaint, historic charm, amazing old homes and touting the world’s largest town square. https://blog.traveliowa.com/view-post/Worlds-Largest-Town-Square-Centerville Believe me, as Missourian, I know 101 different “Ioweegan” jokes. But I have to honestly say it’s a lovely, quiet, historic “live and let live” state.

    The house appears to be in great shape. The main hallway, including the stairway, or at least the newell post, the window in the stairway, and the entryway from the front hall into the front parlor are all, in opinion, changes from the original, possibly even from a couple of different time periods. It all works well together nevertheless. The doorway going out of the piano room under the porch covering seems a bit odd, and I doubt the red brick backed mantle is original. Although it may have been stripped at some time and left with only the natural wood showing, although I doubt that and think it is just not original.
