Property Description

Our home is located in Iowa City's East side on a quiet, 1 block long street with very little through traffic. It's within walking distance to schools, biking/walking trails, and several parks. The house backs up to 2 wooded acres that is jointly owned by all abutting homes. The land will never be developed, has trails built in, and is home to deer, owls, and the occasional fox. The only cost associated to this perk is the voluntary annual or bi-annual donation to cover insurance and taxes. The wooded area combined with privacy fencing and landscaping on both sides make the back yard a very private, peaceful location. The back yard is landscaped with many perennials for easy maintenance but also features areas for annual plantings. Perfect patio for grilling or sitting by the fire pit. The woods and private back yard make it easy to forget you live in town!

The inside features many updates and improvements. The entry way opens up in to a great room complete with sitting area, large wood burning fireplace, wooden beamed ceiling, and french doors that provide access to and great views of the wooded back yard. The carpet in this area, as well as the carpet to the upstairs and in the upstairs hallway, is less than 2 years old. The kitchen comes with stainless steel appliances, eat in dining area, 2 ceiling fans, breakfast bar, and additional back yard views. The main level also features a large multi-functional space that we currently use as a den but could also be used as a formal living room. Beautiful hardwood floors in several rooms on the main level are a must see. A mud room with access to the patio and a half bath complete the main level.

Upstairs you will find 4 bedrooms. The master has hardwood floors, 2 large closets, and a master bath with an additional walk in closet. The remaining 3 bedrooms are carpeted but have hardwood floors beneath the carpet. All rooms feature ceiling fans and room darkening curtains. A large linen closet in the hallway and a full size bathroom can also be found upstairs.

The basement consists of 3 large rooms and an abundance of storage space. The living room and stairs have carpet that is less than 2 months old. Bookshelves atop cupboards cover one wall. The huge laundry room has built in cupboards and shelves, under stair storage, and plenty of room for a deep freeze and refrigerator. An additional utility room has a built in workbench and shelves plus plenty of extra space to be used as an office, toy room, exercise room, etc.

Additional upgrades to note for the house are a new sump pump in 2019, extra capacity water heater in 2014, water softener new in 2009, complete roof replacement in 2013, and the AC and furnace have been serviced annually and have no know issues.

This is a great home that we have truly loved for almost 20 years!

Note* Part of the basement is unfinished. Total square footage is listed in the total. Floor plans scan interior walls and is a little lower than actual.
