This exceptional home was built by Amana craftsmen in 1964 and was one of the first designs in Eastern Iowa by the architect John Hix. The Prairie Style was inspired by the broad, flat landscape of the midwest and typically has low horizontal lines, extensive use of glass and broad open spaces. It is constructed entirely of cedar, stained outside and varnished inside. The home sits on 1.24 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds adjacent to grass farmland overlooking the Iowa River valley. The great room has high ceilings and large windows for a impressive view as well as a contemporary fireplace. The large eat in kitchen area features floor to ceiling windows. There is a two car attached garage and also a detached four car garage that is heated with a work shop area. The extensive kitchen features vintage St. Charles metal cabinets, breakfast bar and lots of counter space. The second level consists of a balcony overlooking the great room, four bedrooms, two full baths and cedar closets. All three levels of the home are connected by an enclosed spiral staircase. The master bedroom features french doors leading to a private deck. The lower level area consists of wide windows for a great view as well as another fireplace, full bath and bonus area that leads to the walkout. There is lots of storage throughout the entire home. Multiple decks and patios are great for relaxing and entertaining. There is complete privacy from the evergreens on the west side of the property. The back yard is wonderfully landscaped including a fire pit, wood fencing and mature trees. The following updates were done in 2007: new interior paint, new carpet, new light fixtures, appliances, furnace and air conditioning. The exterior was repainted in 2011. Fiber optic cable and high speed internet service was added in 2016. Utilities are provided by the Amana Society (electricity and water) and Alliant Energy (gas) and average around $250 per month.
