    More photos in the listing although it just shows you different views of the same rooms.

    This house is simply a dream. The woodwork is just breathtaking and just when you think it can’t get any better we get to the attic. OMG!! And then the basement. I would move right into this one and not change anything except to put an iron fence around it. It is just flawless. That inglenook at the doorway reminds me of the house built in Vicksburg for Fannie Vick, the last descendant of the Vick family. The house was designed by George Washington Meyer and he used the same inglenook at the doorway although his was a bit more elaborate. Anyway Kelly great find, this is a work of art, let us hope someone similar to its current owners buy it. They have done an amazing job!!

    This is definitely a “wood” guy’s dream! There is absolutely nothing I would change. I am curious about much of the upstairs door frames and doors. I’m not sure they are original but have been finished to wonderfully fit right in.

    Amazing woodwork and light fixtures! If this house were in Portland, Oregon, it would all be painted into oblivion within a few months. Fortunately, it is in Iowa and stands a good chance of being appreciated for what it is.

    Ain’t it somethin’?! Where do I begin? The tiled roof and garage. The expansive porch. The arched inglenook entrance. The woodwork, staircase, tapered brick fireplace, close to untouched kitchen, built-ins, colonnade, beamed ceiling with lights, wainscoting, light fixtures, on and on and on and on. And on!

    (My great-great-grandfather Charles Hambsch lived in this county after fighting in the Civil War.)

      (Oops. Have to correct that or Mother won’t be happy. It was my great-great-great grandfather Philip Hambsch who enlisted with the Eighty-third infantry in Illinois, was discharged following the war, and moved to Mills County, Iowa, to farm and then later moved into town (Malvern) in 1906 on Douglas Street. Charles was his son, my great-great. Had to get that right for Veteran’s Day. God bless our past and present vets, our families, our histories, and our homes!)

    Otis Orchards, WA

    The woodwork and the details on the main floor are amazing. Sadly we don’t see the same on the upper floors but we see doors and trim more from the 1980’s. To me it would be worth the cost to change that back to what was there originally!

  7. It has an ingledoor!

    Added to all the fabulous features already mentioned, that basement! This house has obviously been meticulously maintained.

    A dream, that’s what this house is, from top to bottom. Can’t recall ever seeing a basement as immaculate as this! The woodwork throughout is SO beyond gorgeous! Lots of light, so beautifully furnished, and great photos.
