Crafted by Dutch stone mason, Dirk Van Loon; this Pella historic landmark holds potential as a small home, an Airbnb or studio. This charming stone cottage is located right on the Volks Weg bike path and close to Central College. It is a unique one of kind home that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This recognition makes it eligible for Historic Grants and tax credits. The historic walls have experienced a century-and-a-half of Pella events which should inspire creativity. The spacious yard would allow for a horticulture paradise to the right owner, with a view of vast countryside on the edge of Pella. Ask your agent regarding the guidelines of the Historic National Register. There is an allowance included for a wood shingle roof replacement.

    The only downside I see is the water treatment plant next door. Is it the smelly kind or not….?

    Not sure if its the photography or not but those look like some challenging stairs.

    The stairs are steep, but you get used to them pretty fast. We had a house that had steep stairs that were padded and carpeted with a plush carpet. Yes, I fell down those a couple of times because the treads were so rounded! I wouldn’t have a problem with these since they are bare wood!
