If you've ever wanted to live in your own "private bird and butterfly sanctuary," here's your chance!

On Iowa Realty's website, there's currently a listing for a home in Ankeny at 7647 NE Berwick Drive. The 5,973 sq. ft. residence is impressive, but it's the 6.42 aces of land that the house is located on that really grabs your attention! The property is a nature-lover's dream, complete with a stocked lily pond, a patio garden, lots of trees and plants, and even a small hedge maze!

The two-story home was built in 1997 and features five bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, a three-car attached garage, a two-car detached garage, and a walkout basement. One of the other unique features of the house is the attached, heated, 24' x 29' green house! If you have a green thumb, you can use it for plants, but the listing also says that it could easily be turned into an "indoor sport court." The home also has geo-thermal heating and cooling, as well as solar heat.

If you're wondering how much it will cost you to live in this little nature sanctuary, the answer is... close to a million dollars. The home is listed on Iowa Realty's website for $995,000. That's an estimated payment of $5,625 a month! Unfortunately, none of us at the radio station will ever be able to afford that, but it doesn't hurt to dream! Check out some more photos from the home's interior and exterior below:
