Century-Old Iowa Home is Filled with Fireplaces [PHOTOS]
When I saw the exterior of this home, it reminded me of a house I drove by every day as a teenager in southeast Iowa.
I grew up in Sigourney and the house I'm talking about was the home of a high school classmate. Her family loved, appreciated, and cared for that home. Unfortunately, that hasn't been the case in recent years. So, moving along...
Obviously, the people who've lived in the above home in Grinnell, Iowa over the years are like my high school classmate's family. It's clear they've taken incredible care of this home, that was built 122 years ago, in 1900.
Listed just three days ago according to Zillow, the house at 803 High Street in Grinnell has three bedrooms, 3 baths, and sits on a .28-acret lot. The 3,352 square foot home is filled with amenities, including that beautiful wrap around porch, stained glass front doors, a grand staircase, hardwood floors, and a Quartz island in the kitchen. There's a small second story porch just above the front door, the original 114-year-old copper tub is in a bathroom that's been restored with walnut and oak, and there's fireplaces. Lots of fireplaces. A total of five of them by my count.
The home is listed at $399,000. Listing agent is Re/Max Partners Realty. You can see the interior photos of the home below.
Below the photos of this home are pictures of two incredible Iowa homes. There's the Pella Victorian Villa, which recently sold, and a home in Dubuque that was built by the city's first lumber baron. That home remains for sale.
